Silver Metal Clay Day
Tutor Janet Richardson

The objective of the day is to enable you to use a pack of silver metal clay and be able to make something at home. You will make three items and learn many techinques including texturing, rolling, cutting, forming, stone setting, sintering, cleaning up and polishing. I try to keep the techniques separate from the traditional skills you learn on the Silver Jewellery Days.

The day runs 10 - 4 and costs 50 + the materials. Metal clay can vary in price but a general guideline 10grms of silver metal clay + a stone + pure silver wire comes to around 22. Materials are purchased from the tutor.

Introduction to Gemmology - Woodley - The Oakwood Centre, Headley Road, RG5 4JZ
Tutor Sally Spencer

This one day course will introduce the student to gemmology and gemstones as well as explaining how the characteristics of different gemstones can be used by a gemmologist to identify them.
Students will be taught how to use a 10x loupe to look at both internal and external features of gemstones and have the opportunity to look at a variety of different stones.
The use of some of the testing equipment used by gemmologists will be demonstrated and then students will have the opportunity to try these for themselves to see in practice some of the theory discussed during the day.
Students will also be introduced to synthetic, imitation, treated and composite materials before having the opportunity to look at examples of these.
The day concludes with a section concentrating on diamonds, their properties and their imitators, treatments and synthetic diamond.
