MS100 – Professional Certificate In Foundation Metalwork Skills and Experience


Working with the raw materials frees you to produce exactly what you envision. Jewellery designers are often at the mercy of the metalsmiths they commission to create their pieces.

Roll, saw, solder, rivet and polish precious metals into unique, wearable artworks.

This course is entirely online and consists of 6 progressive modules under the guidance & assessment of an expert instructor. Learn traditional ways to manipulate silver, copper, bronze, and metal alloys. Build confidence working with metals by piercing, drilling, forging, fusing and soldering. Apply textures, rolling your own metal sheet and draw wires to custom thicknesses. Execute perfect professional finishing techniques.
