Jewellery workshop

Learn to make silver, bronze or copper jewellery.

Description

The workshop involves making a ring, bracelet or any accessory you like using copper, bronze, nickel silver or silver. The work is carried out with the specific tools used by artisan jewellers. In this workshop we will learn openwork, soldering, polishing, embossing metal and textured finish techniques.


Handmade jewellery is deeply rooted in the immemorial tension between people and the elements. Our need to create beautiful decorative pieces or items with a special meaning have led us to experiment with different metals and materials and develop endless techniques for moulding, engraving and polishing.

The oldest gold jewel ever found is over 6,000 years old. Current jewellery emerges from those archaic pieces: from the same love for beauty.

The jeweller must master the elements he works with, know the materials and use the tools accurately. This is the only way to reproduce the envisaged design.
