The Central Scotland School of Jewellery provides comprehensive courses covering all aspects of the art of jewellery making, suitable for both beginners and more experienced students who wish to refine their skills. Small class sizes enables each student to work on an individual sustained project throughout the class with assistance from highly skilled tutors to provide expert one-to-one tuition. All basic jewellery techniques can be covered: piercing, soldering and applying texture to the metal. In addition, a selection of more specialised processes such as sand casting, resin, keum-boo and fold forming are taught in Weekend Workshops, as students’ individual interests and project requirements emerge. All materials are included, with the exception of silver, which can be purchased at cost from the School. The course is structured so that each student will finish their course with a piece of jewellery and having added to their knowledge of jewellery making.
All courses are led by Jo Pudelko who runs a successful contemporary jewellery business, making her own silver and mix media pieces. Jo has many years experience teaching a wide range of jewellery techniques in further education.
