Our spacious studio consists of five rooms: lecture room with a projector, where we hold hobby courses, drawing and Art-Clay classes. There are many specialized tools for all our students to use: a press, a combination ring stretcher/reducer/bender, a grindstone, a polishing machine, a bench drill press, a jeweller’s table saw, torches, vices and guillotine shears. In the engraving, repoussé and chasing workshop you will also find microscopes and tools produced by our partner-manufacturers following our design guidelines. All of needed materials and tools can also be purchased on site, in our shop.
Our studio contains well-equipped library, bar, relaxing space, admin section and a shop where all the necessary materials are stocked. Our uniquely authored manuals and guidebooks are also available on purchase. Our students get a special discount for all the materials.
All the courses for foreign students we are leading in private tuition, which means, the tutor is focused exclusively on one trainee. A great advantage of individual course is that the course can be adapted according to the student’s needs in terms of the programme as well as the dates and duration of the classes. Our students get a certificate upon completion of every level of training.
Apart from private tuition, we also run group courses. Unfortunately, group courses are available only for students that speak polish. You are welcome to join the group, but you’d need to have some basic polish speaking skills.
The groups are usually of between 4 to 8 people. The classes take place in the afternoon, once a week, 4 hours each; or on the weekend in the afternoon. One term equals 80 clock hours (aside from term 6 – 60 hours)
We also run Term-in-a-Month Courses over a period of 4 weeks/3 days a week and Intensive Summer Courses 5 days a week, 6 hours each.

Our uniquely authored programme is designed in a way participants can master the technical problems most effectively. However, we leave a lot of space to enable our students find their own original form of expression.
We teach techniques – which means we show how to do things. The final result is entirely up to you. Even the shortest workshops contain enough knowledge to let you master your skills at home or in your studio. We give you the tools and show how to find original creative solutions.
The programme of the course includes: practice under specialists’ supervision, lectures aiming at increasing sensitivity to the art of jewellery making, participation in goldsmithing-related events such as fairs, exhibitions and private views, through which the students have the opportunity to see the latest trends and accomplishments of renowned jewelers. We also organize competitions, which help raise the fighting spirit and increase creativity of our trainees.
We not only teach, we also try to introduce our students to the market and help them create their unique brand. We promote our best trainees and help them receive membership in elite creative associations.
Our studios are open to our students on weekdays between 12-5pm. This is a perfect opportunity to practice the newly acquired skills or finish off an ongoing project.
We organize lectures on the history of jewellery, design, marketing, promotion and other relevant subjects. We invite renowned jewellery makes and experts in order to stimulate our students’ creativity, inspire new projects and encourage our trainees to set up their own jewellery brands.
The lectures are held on weekends. They are free of charge for the studio students.
Our students get 10 % off on most of the materials and tools available in our shop. Our manuals are on an even better offer for our trainees. The course participants get up to 23 % discount for hobby courses.
