Jewellery Making Courses



Learn to make jewellery with The JQ Set, from Beginners through to Intermediate/Improvers level and right up to Advanced jewellery courses. We offer set projects which are designed to teach you particular skills or develop skills you already have. We also offer open project courses where you can get help making pieces that you have designed yourself, and we can arrange studio sessions where you can access to workshop equipment with supervision.

Make your jewellery at The JQ Set in our shared Designer/Maker studio by renting one of our beautiful benchspaces. You will have access to the workshop equipment in the teaching space as well as using the display cases in the meeting area to share your work with clients.

Create a unique event at The JQ Set, whether that is a bespoke training course, a demonstration day or an exhibition evening. 


Jewellery (in the) Quarter

At The JQ Set we are huge advocates for the Jewellery Quarter in Birmingham. This vibrant area houses residents, offers some of the best food and drink establishments in Birmingham, provides a base for some amazingly creative businesses, alongside manufacturing 40% of British-made jewellery, and that’s before we’ve even mentioned the shops. So why would we be situated anywhere else!

 Being located right in the midst of the JQ is central to our values – being surrounded by skilled craftspeople hidden away at the back of the shops and up steep stairs of the beautiful brick buildings – we want to peel back the layers of secrecy and teach people what is made in this creative area of Birmingham.

We want to offer easy-access, skills-based jewellery making courses for students who want to do more in their spare time, and it’s incredibly important to us to be running these courses in an area which has such a deep-rooted history of jewellery making.
