It is suitable for jewellers who already have some experience.

buses and parking space is available.


Our aim is to encourage the use of hand tools and enable the jeweller to use

the new cad/cam technology side by side and in conjunction with traditional metal

working. Students will bring their own hand tools and materials. We have oxy-propane and
