The Flux teaching philosophy…
From beginner jewellery courses that will equip you with the founding skills for jewellery making, to advanced and specialist jewellery courses, we aim to inspire you! We believe that creative evolution is best served through play, hence through our teaching we encourage experimentation.
With problem solving also at the heart of our practice we show you how to explore techniques and to push beyond the accepted rules of making. The process (the journey) shapes the outcome, and we revel in the originality of outcome for each of our students. Contrary to other teaching approaches, that which others might define as ‘FAILURE’ becomes a valuable opportunity for understanding material, process or approach. The greatest works often result from such deviations!
On all our jewellery courses we teach traditional silversmithing techniques with a contemporary influence.
Our courses are taught by professional jewellers and dedicated experts. Most of our tutors are Flux Studios members. We’re passionate about what we do and we share our skills with enthusiasm.
When you join our courses you may have the opportunity to sit beside one of our Flux Members at work.
Have a look at what they are doing! In the studio, between us we have 100 years of jewellery knowledge. We like to share it, as others have so generously shared with us.
We have devoted years of learning and practice to develop our jewellery making skills, and we honour the traditions that have been invested in us. At Flux Jewellery School our courses aim to guide you through processes that in time build proficiency. Meanwhile we seek to embed design skills and encourage originality along the way. We inspire students to achieve skills beyond your own expectations. Our students enjoy their time with us on many levels.
Our philosophy is to provide a personalised service for each student. Consequently we focus on developing the skills you need to enrich your creative practice, to suit your ambitions. We know that some of you will go on to become Flux Members in your journey to becoming great jewellers.
Why not take a taster course, to see if you like it here? If you enjoy our style of teaching we offer plenty of routes to further develop your skills. you can choose between short, one or two day specialist workshops to more long term, immersive and accredited learning experiences that equip you for your own bright future as a professional jeweller.
