Online Jewellery Summer School Competition

The Online Jewellery Making Summer School competition with Joanne Tinley Jewellery

Ready for a bit of jewellery making fun this summer?

I now have 27 jewellery making videos on Skillshare, with more coming over the next few weeks, covering making rings, chains, bangles, earrings and a bit of stone setting and rolling mill skills too. Skillshare is a great site for learning new skills, sharing what you’ve made, getting feedback from your fellow students and getting help and advice from me too! In fact, it’s the perfect place to host my online Sumer School especially for those of you who can’t make the Summer School I’m running here in the studios – and even better, you could win £75 to spend in my Etsy store.

So……. Welcome to the Online Jewellery Summer School Competition! The Competition is running from 1:00pm BST on Wednesday 26th July and 11:59pm on Sunday 3rd September – and all you need to do is watch video classes, make jewellery, share your work and make nice comments about work other people post!
