Diamonds are a girls best friend…But in this economic
climate a girl has to learn to make her own!
Well maybe not diamonds, but certainly jewellery and there is always plenty of bling around at Dulwich Jewellery School based in South London. Next on the menu for Spring/Summer are their New Taster Classes, designed to introduce people to jewellery making in an evening.
They are for absolute beginners and you can choose from a range of courses including making cocktail rings, silver pendants and gorgeous earrings from scratch.
Dulwich School's owner and professional tutor, Jessica van Zanten, explains her thinking behind the new classes, "Not everyone is initially ready to commit to a full day of jewellery making so we developed the taster classes as a chance for those who aren't sure or would just like to try something new. It's really dipping your toe in the water to see if it is something you like...which we are sure they will." What's more, if you go to any taster class and don't like it they Dulwich Jewellery School will give you a full refund.
By the end of the class, students will have usually made 2-3 pieces of jewellery, which they can take home to show off to friends and family for a bargain price of just £35!
If you're wondering if just going for an evening is worth it, have a look at what one of the tutors at the school told us, "You would be surprised how much can be done in two-and-a-half hours. Just the other day 5 ladies came to make cocktail rings and each one left with 3 or morew with plenty of time for tea, coffee and breaks. Usually we say that in a taster class you can make around 2 pieces of high quality and long lasting jewellery."
Please Note: Our classes are suitable for those aged 16 and over & for health and safety reasons, all students need to wear closed toe shoes when coming to the workshop. If you have any access requirements, please contact us before booking a course. And due to our small class sizes we are unable to offer transfers or refunds on our courses once booked. Please make sure you can make the date before booking. Thanks LJS x
