Frequently asked questions
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.
When is the course date?
The date of a couse is for YOU to decide. Ask about a couple of course date options 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 availability to teach.
Why do you need to know where I am located?
The majority of our courses take place in the workshop of the tutor and we work with a large group of tutors nationally. Ideally we want to match you with 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.
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.
Why is providing my jewellery website or instagram page information helpful?
Our priority is to provide you with 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 their expertise will benefit you. When we provide tutors with image information about what you make now, they will be able to determine if they can provide tuition that will benefit you or ask you any additional questions.

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!

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.
