What training do you offer?

Bespoke Courses

If you manage a bigger business, you can benefit from a bespoke course delivered solely for your own employees, either taught in our Goldsmiths’ Centre workshops or at your premises. Areas covered include fine diamond mounting, traditional stone setting techniques, microscope setting and engraving, CAD modelling using Rhino 3D, 3D printing, and polishing.

We can run these courses in your own workshop, provided that you have the necessary equipment required for the course. The dates and times are bespoke and subject to tutor availability.

Technical Courses

We run regular 2-to-3-day short courses at the Goldsmiths’ Centre (London, EC1M 5AD) on fixed dates and times. These are best suited for individual members of your team as they can join other jewellery professionals on one of our courses and form new connections and contacts.

Examples of our current technical courses include:

  • Claw and Rubover Setting
  • Channel Setting
  • Pavé Setting
  • Setting with Air Tools
  • Introduction to Rhino and 3D printing

Our technical courses are taught by award-winning master craftspeople including Niall Paisley, Harry Forster-Stringer and Jasmin Karger.

Why invest in upskilling?

  • Advance in your career by acquiring and improving your technical skills.
  • Receive industry-recognised training from the Goldsmiths' Centre, building your confidence and your professional network.
