  • This course is intended for those who have never done silver jewellery before and are looking to introduce it as a stage 4 option in Technology (mandatory). You will learn how to make a plain silver ring, a twisted ring and a pendant in sterling silver. This is taught from metalworking principles and can be taught in a metalwork room with quite basic tools.
  • Introduction to Adobe Illustrator and Laser Cutting: In this course you will learn the basics of Adobe Illustrator and how to incorporate those skills into laser cutting. Illustrator skills covered include drawing and combining basic shapes, lines and curves, formatting text, tracing and manipulating existing images and navigating the software interface.

    Participants will be able to experiment with veneers, acrylic and solid timber and are encouraged to bring ideas from their school workshops with them if possible.
  • Do you think that SketchUp is a ‘Toy’ CAD program that no professional would ever
    touch? Did you know that NASA use SketchUp? So do many architectural and engineering
    firms. Don’t know how to start using SketchUp? Have you played around with SketchUp but feel that you have missed some basic tips, shortcuts, page set ups? This software is particularly suitable for teachers and students of woodwork and metalwork
  • Have you always wanted to know the Tips & Tricks of doing River Pours? How to get rid of those pesky air bubbles in pour on finishes? Or how to achieve great finishes using recycled timber? What products and requirements can be used for internal and external conditions?
    This workshop will give you all the tips and tricks and correct products to do River Pours and more. By doing your own projects you will be loaded up with techniques for working with recycled and new timber for making unique woodwork projects. You will gain tips & tricks on how to take very ordinary pieces of timber from fence palings to slab timber and turn them
    into one off masterpieces. The plan is for you to bring manageable pieces of 2nd hand timber with you to play with over the two days. We will do the pouring / Epoxy coating on Saturday and finishing on Sunday.
    We will provide you with a list of goodies (Do not sweat if you do not have timber – we can supply) and tools you will need to bring once advised you have selected our knowledgeable workshop.
