CSSJ's week-long, intermediate-level,  Beyond Beginners Summer School is a fantastic opportunity for those who have the basics but would like to expand their skill repertoire and confidence. We will focus on specialised processes, techniques, and skills over five consecutive days, Monday – Friday. Join CSSJ in their light, spacious studio overlooking the River Allan in Dunblane, for an opportunity to immerse yourself in the world of jewellery-making under expert tuition. We will devote each day to teaching you a new technique enabling you to add texture, colour, or depth to your designs. Some topics such as stone setting can be adjusted for your skill level. For example, if you are already competent with bezel setting, we can teach you how to tube set.

  • Experimental casting and how to attach findings to your castings
  • Heat coloured titanium & cold connection techniques
  • Stone setting techniques
  • Keum boo (adding gold to your silver designs)
  • Eco-etching

This course aims to instill confidence as you advance your studio practice with new techniques. Your tutor will give a wide range of practical demonstrations which will be spread throughout the course, giving lots of time to practice and experiment with new techniques. This course is geared towards skill building that will influence your longer jewellery journey and is not about creating finished pieces of jewellery. You will leave with a comprehensive set of new skills, notes, and samples to help you put these into practice and create finished pieces in your home studio.
