Then to complement your skills we have selected a series of short specialist courses. Here we introduce new techniques to further enrich your skills development.\nHow will my learning be structured?\nBetween September and July you will have attended three 10 week evening courses and 4 specialist weekend courses. Additionally\, across the year you will have 3 enriching personal development days with your tutor.You'll spend an additional weekend at Flux for your exhibition and in total this amounts to more than 180 hours of workshop time. With a maximum ratio of 1 tutor to 6 students this means we can provide the input you need to keep developing to the highest level. To gain the Flux Advanced Certificate in Jewellery you will need to attend all sessions. (flexibility around dates can be arranged but please discuss this with us in advance). You can see the full timetable at the bottom of this page.\nWhat will I learn?\nBy the end of this course you will have expanded your knowledge and technical skills to raise your jewellery activities to a professional level.  We aim to invigorate every aspect of your practice\, with focus given to creative development\, technical know-how and business skills too. \n\nAs we have a strong interest in your creative development\, the projects we set always begin with the experimental. We want to you break through and above the conventional\, and thus produce work with originality and flair.\n\nAt this level we need to consider production methods and pricing strategies alongside creative ideas and we will support these elements through assignments\, project work and study days.\nWhich techniques will I explore?\nStone setting - we present opportunities for you to explore all aspects of setting. From fine jewellery setting techniques (bead\, pave\, claw) to the more experimental (wax\, delft\, mixed techs)\, which suits you? Experiment too with encapsulation to 'set' other materials and objects into your jewellery.\n\nGemmology - Learn the basics of pearl grading\, and then try your hand at knotting to create a string of pearls. Learn how to distinguish gemstones using high and low tech methods. In addition\, you will learn about the various working properties of a range of stones. This knowledge is invaluable when considering setting styles for specific stones. Furthermore- and as an added bonus\, you will make a tension set ring using a semi-precious stone.\n\nCold Connections - we explore how to attach metal and other elements together. Especially relevant techniques include encapsulation\, riveting\, screws and tabs.\n\nForming - Try a range of forming techniques to give lightweight volume\, meanwhile creating hollow forms. How else can you take advantage of these design possibilities? You will explore small scale raising techniques\, as well as scoring and fold forming. \n\nCasting and related processes - we examine a range of approaches to creating solid 3D form\, especially in relation to stone setting. Learn how to prepare a wax model for stone setting\, and try your hand at studio casting methods to encapsulate stones.\n\nDecorative techniques  - you'll get to experiment with etching techniques for jewellery\, and hand engraving. Explore which of these best suits your making approach. Additionally\, you will experiment with small scale resin work and other methods of encapsulation. \n\nCreative design - designing is of course integral  to your project work. Additionally\, we structure the Personal Development days to further support your jewellery design skills. On these occasions you will work with your tutor to develop a collection or series of collections that meet a specific brief. \n\nBusiness skills - Who are you making your jewellery for? We present ways to explore audiences and find your niche market. Once identified\, we look at production techniques and strategies for pricing and marketing your work.\nWhat will I produce for the Flux Advanced Certificate in Jewellery?\nPhysical objects - Since your creative spirit knows no bounds we cannot precisely say what you will make during your year here\, but we can suggest you will produce at least: a pendant\, ring and earrings that explore stone settings\, a small\, formed vessel in copper or silver\, and a ring or brooch that encapsulates some precious item. You will also have made a string of pearls\, a tension set ring (or two)\, engraving plates and an etched pendants or a bangle.\n\nSketchbook work\, and notes - You will produce at least one sketchbook over the year. In your sketchbook you will record ideas\, technical problem solving\, sources of inspiration\, drawing and sketching exercises and design work. You may like to keep technical notes in your sketchbook too - or if you prefer you may have a separate notebook for these.\n\nTreasury of samples - We find that people best learn through experience\, so all your courses begin with experimentation. These experiments and tests form the basis of your own\, personal reference treasury - a visual\, tactile library of materials and techniques that you can use to develop future jewellery projects. How is this useful? Those periods of experimentation are aways followed by a project with a brief. In your project work your designs will be infused with influences from your tests\, also within the context of a brief.\n\nAn exhibition - At the end of the year\, as part of your final assessment\, you will present a selection of all of these outputs for exhibition. This normally exhibition normally falls in mid June\, as part of Camberwell Arts Festival. \nWhat do I gain?\nIn addition to all of the products listed above\, you will be presented with the Flux Advanced Certificate in Jewellery.

Gemmology courses with Stone Setting DESCRIPTION:Learn ways to identify coloured gemstones. Combine gemmology and stone setting: put your new knowledge straight into practice with an afternoon workshop session to make a stone-set piece of jewellery.\nGB2  Book Now\nDo you know your Emeralds from your Agates? Can you tell the difference between Ruby and Pink Tourmaline? How many colours do Sapphires come in? Did you know you can identify a Diamond from a Cubic Zirconium with only a pen to aid you? Are you ready to learn some gemmology and stone setting techniques?\n\nWe proudly present our Gemmilicious series of one-day workshops in gemmology and stone setting. Learn about your favourite stones\, then learn how to set one in a tension ring and wear it home.\n\nOn each course you'll have an opportunity to use a range of professional gemstone identification equipment\, and  we'll also introduce you to some trade tricks and lo-tech methods to examine and identify a wide selection of stones in hues from crystal-white to clear pastels\, greens\, blues to purple shades and pink to reds\, orange and brown..\n\nWe want you to make use of this knowledge\, so each workshop begins with a morning gemmology session followed by an afternoon of practical workshop activity. Make a sterling silver tension set ring with your favourite stone\, or when we study pearls\, learn the traditional knotting technique with silk to make your own necklace.\nWho are these workshops for?\nWe invite anyone with an interest in gemstones to join our course. Intended as an introduction to gemmology\, we provide you with a foundation knowledge of the characteristics of a range of popular gemstones. We  explore techniques to identify them\, and also how to care for them (and what not to do with them!).  We also discuss how to design jewellery for particular gemstones and these courses are especially useful for jewellers wanting to incorporate them into their work.\nHow will these workshops help you?\nWhen it comes to stone setting\, it's crucial to know a little bit about the kind of gemstone you are working with. Gemstone characteristics\, like hardness\, brittleness\, heat resistance\, porosity and cleavage are all important qualities that affect your choice of stone when designing jewellery. Additionally\, when buying a stone\, you need to know how to assess the quality of the stones on offer.\n\nAt each session in our gemmology series we discuss the individual characteristics and behaviours of the particular stones\,  to help you become better designers - and better stone setters too.\n\nWe've grouped our range of gemstones according to similar hues\, to better help you understand the differences between similar stones.

Combine gemmology and pearl stringing: put your new knowledge straight into practice with an afternoon workshop session to make a knotted string of pearls.\nWould you know if your pearls were dyed or naturally coloured? What is the difference between a Keshi Pearl and a Baroque pearl?  What is the difference between an Akoya Pearl and a Tahitian Pearl? How do Freshwater Pearls differ from the saltwater variety?  These little shell-fish gems have been favoured treasures since the earliest times; still they captivate us with their lustrous beauty. Have you ever fancied trying your hand at pearl stringing? Join us for a pearl grading workshop\, and make your own knotted string of pearls to wear home.\n\nOn this one day course you'll have an opportunity to view a wide range of pearls of various type\, size\, colour and quality. We'll introduce simple methods for basic identification\, and we'll look beneath the surface of a sample of pearls to understand their structure. Pearls are organic 'gemstones'. Although quite resilient\, they are sensitive to chemicals and to general wear and tear; we will discuss  how to take care of them.\n\nWe want you to make use of this knowledge\, so the class begins with a morning gemmology session followed by an afternoon of practical workshop activity to make your own string of pearls using traditional knotting techniques\, using silk and gimp.\nHow will this workshop help you?\nWhen it comes to making jewellery with gems and gem-like natural materials like pearl and amber\, it's crucial to know a little bit about the qualities of these materials. Gemstone characteristics\, like hardness\, brittleness\, heat resistance\, porosity and cleavage are all important qualities that affect your choice when designing jewellery.

You will learn to sift powdered enamels onto copper sheet. You can try blending colours\, you can use stencils to give definition\, and you can draw through it to produce unique patterns and textures. Using pre-enamelled steel sheet you will then have the opportunity to use liquid vitreous enamels to paint or draw with colour.\n\nThe course draws focus to the process of experimentation and through hands-on experience you will gain sound knowledge of this complex but rewarding material.\n\nEnamelling is not difficult to learn\, but it is an unpredictable and therefore exciting process. This course will teach the basic technical aspects of the craft\, alongside the associated health and safety issues related to the use of enamel powders and liquids. We will first learn how to obtain a well-fused enamel surface\, and then through guided experimentation we will explore mark making techniques on copper and steel\, and on the second day we will develop a finished piece of jewellery using cold connection techniques.\nWhat will I produce?\nYou'll produce a range of test pieces that reflect your personal interests\, style or aesthetic. We anticipate that your samples will provide lasting reference -and inspiration- for your future jewellery projects.\n\nOn the second day there will also be opportunity to devise suitable cold connections that will enable you to create a wearable item from your favourite test piece.\nMaterials\nThe course fee covers the cost of all materials. Metals available for your use include copper and enamelled steel. A selected palette of powder vitreous enamels will also be provided.\nYou may also bring your own precious materials to work with\,; in this instance please note we recommend using fine silver rather than sterling silver for enamelling\, due to the inherent processes and behaviours of the materials involved.\n\nCan I get my work hallmarked?\nWe are able to offer a hallmarking service for precious jewellery made at Flux - If you  would like to have your work hallmarked with the Flux Studios hallmark this can be arranged at cost price.\nTea\, coffee and light refreshments are provided throughout the weekend.\n\n Book Now\nCourse Tutor: Katherine Brunacci.

We'll also explain about the relative weights of materials you are likely to use. In the process you'll learn how to reduce the weight without compromising the visual impact of your design.\n\nSize\, dimension and the choice of metal affects the weight - and cost - of your final outcome. Since objects cast from wax can be heavy (and thus\, expensive) we'll also talk about plating processes for jewellery. For example\, choosing to cast in bronze and then gold plating your design is more cost effective than having your wax design cast in solid gold.\n\nYou will experience first hand the differences between types of waxes commonly used for making wax models\, through a series of set projects:\n\n \t Wax carving: design and carve a ring in wax\n \tDesign and make an item suitable for batch production\n\nWe can take your wax models to the casters\, and your results can be cast in bronze\, brass\, silver or gold.\n\n(NOTE We will work out the likely cost in various metals beforehand\, so you you'll know what to expect to pay.  You will need to pay this fee for your model to be cast up.)\nWhat will I learn?\nBy the end of this course you will know how to cut\, carve\, manipulate and polish wax to realise your designs. You will be able to prepare your items for professional lost wax casting. You'll also have a good understanding of the constraints of the processes and materials involved. You should also understand how to make a prototype in wax that can be reproduced to make multiples of the same design. Additionally your design skills will have improved. You will  have an understanding of how to create good wax designs for the casting process.\nBook Now\nCourse Tutor:Becky Dockree and Barbora Rybarova\nMax student numbers: 12 students with 2 tutors. \nCourse Dates: 19 May - 18 June 2018. \n\nClass Times: Thursday evenings\, 6.15pm - 9.15pm\n\nCourse Fee:  Standard fee £260 / *Concessions £225\n*f you are on a low wage\, or in receipt of tax credits or other benefit you qualify for the Flux concessionary rate.
