3rd Jan 2022 – Important Announcement: The JQ Set classes will be reverting back to our previous Covid precautions from last winter for Jan/Feb 2022. There will be limited class sizes of 5 students (plus tutor) and social distancing of 2m in the workshop, plus the extra requirement of having a negative lateral flow test in the 12 hours before class. This is to look after each other and to avoid The JQ Set closing completely, particularly as I am at high risk from Covid (previously known as clinically extremely vulnerable). Have a look at the full details by clicking the button below. Many thanks, Pippa.

About the Studio
The JQ Set is a jewellery workshop for both established makers and jewellery students.
One 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 are taking COVID-19 related social distancing very seriously at The JQ Set, and have several new measures in place to protect our students, jewellers and tutors.
The JQ Set runs several short blocks of 3-6 week jewellery courses each school term, with a few Taster one-day classes dotted throughout. You’re sure to find some dates that work for you.
We teach jewellery craftsmanship and hand skills to students wanting to learn to make jewellery. You will learn small-scale metalworking techniques to create silver jewellery.

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.
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.
