More great Jewellery Courses at Flux Studios. We are once again offering our special weekend Jewellery courses from our well equipped South London Studios. Because of a subsidy from the local council these two day short courses and family workshops are now being sponsored for the year ahead. Our weekend courses offer great value at £80 / £40 for local residents, and weekday jewellery courses are free! Please visit the website for more details
This weekend we had a lovely group of highly motivated individuals, mostly with no previous experience in making, who all went smiling home with rattling pockets and jingling fingers – proud makers of some really fine pieces of jewellery!
We have worked through our waiting lists, and there are 1 or 2 remaining places on some of the jewellery courses here at Flux.
If you fancy a stretch of your creative faculties in January please visit here to sign up.
They make for a FABULOUS gift too!!!!
I’m endlessly surprised by how much is achieved by the participants – complete beginners, young and old – in such a short time, and by the range and quality of creativity that unfolds in those 3 hours…..Elsewhere, hammers and punches were used to make interesting textures, and beautiful patterns were pressed using the rolling mill. A particular favourite for me was Laura’s landscape.. she worked out a superb solution for a plinth.
Here’s a beautiful piece by Nic Webb, who quickly grasped the parameters of the material in hand to produce this highly original ring.
In response to popular demand we decided to run a similar course for intermediate jewellery students this term; there are still 1 or 2 places left so if you fancy joining get signed up here
This 12 week course starts 22 September. All other courses at Flux start 13/14 September. Check the prospectus for full details.
Do you deserve a real treat? Do you work with clay?
Cork Potters are running these exciting workshops in June… only a few places remaining… guaranteed to delight!

Are you ready for something new?
Why not treat yourself to a course here at Flux Studios! Whether you’re new to jewellery making or if you fancy improving skills and developing new techniques, you can be sure of the best possible tuition to meet your needs. Techniques we will be exploring this term include wax carving (for casting), making hollow forms, and creative approaches to joining elements together using links and linkages. At beginners level soldering will also be a focus for skills development.
