Improvers Course

To join the Improvers course you must have completed the BENCHspace beginners course. It is an eight week programme designed to follow on from the learning of the Beginners Course to enhance and further your skills and techniques. People work at their own pace and therefore projects covered depend on individual progress.

The Improvers course builds on the skills learnt in the Beginners course, and is learner led. You can choose from an array of projects, each graded according to the level of difficulty to continue building your skillset week on week. You may complete 4 projects or more during the eight week course and this is led by each individual student with tuition provided to guide and support your expanded growth as a maker/ designer.

Topics covered include; making bezel settings, setting cabochon stones in a rub over setting, riveting, making a variety of rings and measuring accurately, different types of soldering techniques, making chain, forging, doming and swaging, design skills as well as polishing and finishing. People work at their own pace and therefore projects covered depend on individual progress.

A list of essential tools is also provided if you wish to set up your own workbench at home and a list of trusted suppliers for all your jewellery making needs. After completing the Improvers course, you can can continue to learn on the next Improvers course as you challenge yourself in choosing more difficult projects, using the workshop tools and equipment and the support and guidance of your tutor.
