Jewellery Making Courses

Welcome to the new website!

 The JQ Set offers part-time evening and weekend jewellery making classes in the heart of Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter.

Have a look around, let me know if any links aren’t working – I’m much better at making jewellery than websites!

About Our Studio

The JQ Set is a jewellery workshop for  both established makers and jewellery students.

Half of the studio houses our resident jewellery designer/makers, and the other half is our jewellery school; a welcoming teaching space with 10 student benches, tools and machinery.

We teach jewellery craftsmanship and hand skills to students wanting to learn to make jewellery.

If you’re looking for a new hobby, give this a go!

I’ve just done the beginners’ course and absolutely loved it! My first attempt at jewellery making and I’ve made a sterling silver ring that looks very professional!

Pippa is a great teacher, the studio is absolutely beautiful and the classes are fun and relaxed.

Happy Students

Pippa is a professional jeweller and gifted teacher – very friendly and easy to approach (and her dog is lovely)!

The project is broken down into simple steps, which she demonstrates, and she gave us tiny hints that make a huge difference! 

I can’t praise this course enough.

- Helen P

I’ve just completed the beginner’s course and I would highly recommend it!

We learnt a wide range of techniques, Pippa is very knowledgeable, friendly and patient – under her instruction I made a ring which I’m really pleased with.
