Ignite your creativity and gain the independence to bring your jewellery visions to life with JDMIS' flagship Metalsmithing course. Unlock a world of unlimited design potential as a skilled metalsmith because you are no longer confined to the constraints of pre-existing components or the availability of specific designs from external suppliers. You have the power to craft bespoke pieces that fully embody your originality and style.
You will embark on the mastery of shaping and joining metals such as silver, copper, bronze and hands-on experience with piercing, drilling, forging, fusing, and soldering. Transform simple metal sheets into intricate, tangible expressions of your artistic vision by adding textures, creating custom thicknesses by rolling out metal sheets, and drawing wires to the precise dimensions. By the end of this course, you'll not only have a collection of your own stunning, wearable art pieces but also the skills to forge ahead in the industry as a proficient metalsmith & creative entrepreneur.

Love this course; it's informative and great! Will definitely come back for refresher lessons. It's worth every penny, and they should join as they will learn a lot and it's very applicable! Metalsmithing is my favorite course because it's very hands-on and fun with great instructors! It will be useful to make fine jewellery, which is my goal!

My favourite is still Metalsmithing at this point. I enjoy spending hours crafting beautiful pieces of arts from raw silver sheets and wires.

I think the thrill of learning metalsmithing techniques for the first time was my best experience. (JDMIS is) the best place to take a course. You will not be disappointed.

It's easy to make your own jewellery instead of buying. Metalsmithing for the win!

I like that I can get "my hands dirty" with hands-on experience.I really enjoy metalsmithing and working with silver! I am very inspired to continue metalsmithing and learning more at JDMIS because I had a fantastic instructor.

I like both New Metal and Metalsmithing courses. I like them both: very practical and hands-on and able to make jewellery pieces on my own.

Friendly and encouraging atmosphere...This course will help me communicate better with the goldsmiths who will be working on my jewellery designs.
