Welcome to K2, a jewellery school with a conceptual, free-thinking approach to design, underpinned by rigorous technical training in the heart of London

TRADITIONAL TO EXPERIMENTAL STONE SETTING

8 Week Course - Thursdays

18 Jan 2018 - 15 Mar 2018 (half-term 15 Feb)

What will be taught?

This exciting course will give you the possibility to learn and

practice traditional setting techniques e.g. bezel setting, flush setting and claw setting. After that you will be

encouraged to explore and experiment to see how you can

use the settings in a new and unconventional way.

The course will focus on:

> learning and practicing traditional stone-setting

   techniques

>  developing your sense of design

> applying the learnt techniques in an uncommon,

   experimental way

Learning and practicing the standard settings will be covered during the first half of the course. You will then be encouraged to look

for various ways of how to set stones and objects and

explore the possibilities of embracing them in alternative

ways and methods. The creative journey is as important as

the final outcome and the course aims to provide you with

new skills and experiences.

 

Who is it for?

Jewellers, artists, craft practitioners and students who are looking to explore new approaches to making, who want to get the chance to experiment and broaden their creative working practices. Basic jewellery-making skills are useful.

 

Who will teach the course?

K2 founders and course leaders Kelvin J Birk and Katrin Spranger are professional jewellers with years of teaching experience.
