The Goldsmiths’ Centre in Clerkenwell, London, has launched a new evening series of Technical Skills Short Courses for 2019 designed specifically for intermediate to advanced learners. These bespoke workshops will provide a unique opportunity for members of the jewellery, silversmithing and allied industries to hone their hand skills over 6 to 8 weeks with some of the UK’s leading practicing craftspeople.
With small class sizes, participants will receive dedicated guidance from their tutor, allowing them to discuss the challenges they are facing in producing their work. Held in the purpose-built workshops of the Goldsmiths’ Centre, these short courses kickstart in January next year and will start from as little as £360:
