In the Studio Jewellery School are delighted to announce that we have, at long last, moved our school to Alicante in Spain. Our first set of Spain-based courses are now viewable on our Calendar page and available to book.

All our lecturers have agreed to fly out to Spain to continue teaching their wonderful skills to old and new students, in fact they are looking forward to it.

The courses will be slightly shorter days from 9am to 1pm, therefore enabling the possibility of family and friends to also enjoy some of your company should they want to join you. We have already been contacted by a company who are organising trips to bodegas and sightseeing should any students and friends want to join in with other things. Our intention is that all should leave with our usual high standard of skills learnt but also have a wonderful experience visiting Spain.

We will be looking at more options for students as soon as we can. The closest beach of Guardamar is 15 minutes drive from us and Torrevieja 20 minutes, so if it’s a beach you are looking for it’s not far. Alicante airport is about 20 minutes away, we are located down a quiet country lane but close to villages and towns, nothing too far away.

Thank you all for your kind wishes on our facebook page, we really do appreciate them.

Very best wishes to you all and look forward to you joining us in the lovely warm sunshine.

Enamelling Course

Enamelling allows you to add colour to jewellery, with a beautiful glass-like finish.

A fun course, suitable for everyone from complete beginners to experienced jewellers.

Students will enamel between 5 to 9 pieces, depending on the individual, and will come away with a thorough understanding of all the different types of enamelling methods used in jewellery making.

The enamelling process can be applied to all precious metals such as Copper, Silver and Gold jewellery making techniques, opening up a whole new world of creative possibilities for jewellery makers.
