Independent gallery launches Nottingham Jewellery School

The Focus Gallery in Nottingham has launched a new jewellery school to teach skills to local designer-makers.

The gallery hopes that the new ‘Nottingham Jewellery School’ will help local jewellers “brush up on existing skills and engage their creativity”.

With the official Opening on 6 May, the first day will offer demonstrations and hour-long sessions, with a chance to win free workshops and vouchers.

The Nottingham Jewellery School will hold a number of courses including silversmithing, enamelling, reworking old gold and making bespoke wedding rings. These will take place within one-day or half-day workshops as well as morning and evening courses.

Rachel Helen, who teaches how to recycle gold jewellery, and who will be contributing to the teaching effort at the new school, said: “While recycling jewellery for ethical or sentimental purposes has always been a key aspect of my work, Nottingham Jewellery School now offers the perfect space for me to teach others how to rework their own jewellery into something both meaningful and wearable.”
