Working with the raw materials frees you to produce exactly what you envision. Jewellery designers are often at the mercy of the metalsmiths they commission to create their pieces. Fashion jewellery artists depend on their component suppliers. As a metalsmith however, your only limit is your imagination. Roll, saw, solder, rivet and polish precious metals into unique, wearable artworks.

Course outline

Learn traditional ways to manipulate gold, silver, copper, bronze, and metal alloys. Build confidence working with metals by piercing, drilling, forging, fusing and soldering. Apply textures, rolling your own metal sheet and draw wires to custom thicknesses. Make joints and cold connections and prefect professional finishing techniques. Understand how metals are cast and options available to small studios.

    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.
