Setting up a workshop
Metalsmithing Training Programme
Fee per person: USD$130.00 per hour
Duration: 12 hours minimum
A jewellery design drawing is the communication tool between the designer, client, jeweller and manufacturer. Drawings must be precise in order to show all the relevant details. This is to avoid misunderstanding, and to allow the jeweller to create the piece with minimum assistance or further explanation.
In this programme, clients will learn about the required tools and techniques for technical drawing. They will also be taught the importance of coming up with original ideas by getting the inspiration from the elements around them.
Step by step, the instructor will go through the methods for creating jewellery design sketches, felt pen technical drawings, brush-marker and watercolour techniques. We will explain and carefully illustrate the different techniques used for materials like silver, gold, platinum, coloured stones and precious gems. The final project may include rings, bracelets, necklaces, brooches, or earrings.
