  • How much does a course cost
    All course fees are calculated based on the tutor's daily trade rate, therefore the cost of your course depends on the individual course/tutor you select. Not all courses have course fee's published, this either because we need you to enquire so we can send you more information about the course or because the tutor has asked for their course fee not to be published on our website. Send an enquiry if you would like to receive a quote for a course you are interested in. Email:
  • When is the course date?
    All our courses are private tuition and therefore are arranged upon request. You may ask about a course date of preference of ask for some course date options for you to choose from and we will check the tutor's diary for their availability. If the tutor is not available on your chosen date they will advise their next available date to teach. All course dates are subject to tutor availability. Many tutors fit teaching around their trade practises.
  • How much are course materials?
    For a bespoke course you will be working on your own project regardless of the course you undertake, therefore it is not possible to determine beforehand the amount of precious metals/materials you may decide to use on the day. For some "Beginner" courses a small amount of basic materials will be included in the course fee, with extra available to purchase from the tutor if required. To give you the most amount of flexibility, you pay the tutor directly for the precious metals/materials you actually use or you may bring your own. If you do choose to bring some precious metals/materials with you, once you have booked your course you are provided with your tutors direct contact details so that you can contact them directly to obtain their advice about what precious materials you could bring to your course.
  • Why do you need to know where I am located?
    The majority of our courses take place in the studio's of our tutors around the UK and ideally we want to recommend the nearest tutor to where you live, who has the skills required to teach you what you want to learn. Your location helps us do this, otherwise as standard we will provide an course location for the nearest main concentration of tutors which is Birmingham Jewellery Quarter or Central London. Please bear in mind for some very specialised courses may have only one course location in the UK available. There are a few tutors in Scotland and Wales too.
  • Why do we ask for your mobile number?
    When we review your course request our jewellery training consultant may need quick clarification via a call to ensure we recommend the course or tutor most suitable for your training requirements.
  • Why is providing my Jewellery Website or Instagram account link helpful?
    Our priority is to provide a course tutor best suited to your course/training requirements. For complex course enquiries we may need to consult with a tutor to ask if or how their expertise will benefit you. If we provide a link to your jewellery work this can help them determine if they can provide tuition that will benefit you or ask you any additional questions. When we provide you with a course quotation this diligence means we have done our utmost to ensure the course tuition and tutor we offer will benefit you the most.

What People Say

Jess T | Jeweller

Hand Engraving Course

A big 5** rating for my course with Robert (tutor)  - he was fantastic ! Very encouraging and understanding of my struggles and super knowledgeable and inspiring! 

Thank you very much for existing- as it's so difficult to find this kind of training and I doubt I could have gained what I did in such a short space of time any other way.


I'm hoping to book a follow up course after a couple of months of practising so that says it all really! 

Justin | Jewellery Company
Visiting Tutor Stonesetting Short Course 

The course was great and Nigel (tutor) was brilliant! We're definitely going to get him down again next year if he is willing to come again.

I would rate it as Excellent.

We all got so much out of it and have a lot of work to do now to practice all the things we learnt. I am sure the expense will have been worth it. 


Also your communication and organisation was very good. I had contacted a few people about courses and you were by far the best organised and quick to reply. 


Thanks again and keep me posted on any more things you have to offer.
