Gemstone & Hardstone Carving for Jewellery with Charlotte De Syllas

Charlotte De Syllas Short Courses 2017

Intensive 5 Day Workshop Courses

5 days intensive work to learn how to carve from cutting out through to polishing an object
in hard or gemstone in well equipped studio in Norfolk.

About the Short Course

Classes are small and friendly, with expert individual tuition.

We have saws, grinders, carving spindles and micro motors as well as burrs, files & polishing pastes so that you can go from sawing a piece of rough stone to blocking it out, carving it and polishing the finished article all within a single week’s course.

We work mostly with the hardstone chalcedony & quartz family, so you will be well prepared when you move on to more valuable gemstones.

If trimming & drilling are what you want to achieve, rather than full carving, you are also welcome to attend.

Past students have found the week fulfilling and fun, learning new skills in a friendly, informal atmosphere – and taking home a finished piece made completely from scratch.

Who is the Course For?

Absolute beginners as well as those with some experience are welcome.

What Tools Will I Need?

All equipment & stone provided.
