This course is open to members and non-members and is intended for people with torch knowledge and some experience in jewellery. During the session, we will explore types of findings and discuss why and how they are useful in jewellery production. There will be a series of demonstrations to help participants create a range of findings. On completion of the workshop participants will have improved their skills, whilst learning how to make bezels, tube setting, clasps, jump-rings, earwires and earring post-backs. Participants will also have an improved understanding of the use of tools including measuring tools, the rolling mill and draw plates in order to create findings that perfectly match the needs of their designs.

Members, please be aware that attending a 201 does not give you open access to the Studio. To obtain unrestricted access to a Studio you must complete the 101 Safety Training for that Studio.
