Learn

I’m sometimes asked if Ditherella’s Workshop runs workshops. I’m afraid the answer is no, but maybe one day!

In the meantime this information might help anyone looking to learn.

Near Rugby… and further afield

There are evening classes at:
Rugby School Emily Richard runs evening classes here.

The Percival Guildhouse runs jewellery classes which I think are more bead & wire based than those above.

The Herbert in Coventry sometimes runs workshops.
Leamington College runs evening classes. If it’s still Michelle Wood tell her I said hello!

Beccy Gillatt in Olney near Milton Keynes runs an impressive range of courses and also untutored studio time.

Birmingham School of Jewellery do part time courses in the evening and daytime, and short/day courses in the summer, though some require/recommend experience. I’ve did quite a few courses here, many moons ago.
There are several other places in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter that run workshops and courses too.

You can learn on the silver jewellery boat on the canal in Worcestershire

There are even places where you can have a short jewellery making holiday – i.e. La Vidalerie in France.
Online
There are lots of online courses, for example with skillshare and ways of finding courses, for example craftcourses.
You might also take a look on YouTube at Andrew Berry, Soham Harrison and Nancy L Hamilton – very different characters, and no substitute for having a teacher in the room, but lots of tips!
