New! Jewellery Repair Workshop: Assessment & Chain Repair- July 18




 

Prerequisite:  Students must have enough jewellery making experience to be familiar with the basics, comfortable using workshop equipment, and aware of common safety procedures in the studio.

As friends and family discover that you’re building your skills as a jeweller, you will eventually be approached with repair requests. These requests can seem daunting at first, especially when they involve sentimental pieces (which is often the case!). Designed for our experienced students who have become familiar with the basics of jewellery making and are looking to advance their skills, this course will help you build the know-how and confidence to perform repairs safely.

This one-day class will introduce you to the many factors involved in assessing common types of jewellery repairs, and to basic chain repair skills, including:

  • Assessing repairs – best practices
  • Identifying metal types & karats
  • Gold testing
  • Pricing repairs
  • Cleaning
  • Different types of chain
  • Common types of chain repairs
  • Torch repair vs laser welding
