IF you want to make beautiful things for a living, South West Institute of TAFE has places in its jewellery-making course.
Lecturer Steve Pease has exhibited his jewellery and glass throughout Australia and wants to pass on his knowledge to a new generation of jewellers.
“I started my career as a reluctant TAFE student,” he said. “From the moment I walked into the first class I fell in love with making jewellery and working with silver. I knew from that moment that I had found the medium I wanted to work with. That first class at TAFE was life-changing.
“This is your chance to discover your passion and forge a possible long term career as a jeweller, produce jewellery for the sheer pleasure of working with stones and precious metals or cultivate the skills required for a jewellery apprenticeship.”
Classes are structured to teach the first time student all the skills they will require to produce rings, pendants, chains, brooches or earrings.
Enrolments are open at South West Institute of TAFE, Margaret River reception.
Phone 9780 5800 or call into the Bussell Highway campus, Monday to Friday 8.30-4,30pm to enrol.
Jewellery classes commence July 31.
