At Vannetta Seecharran School of Jewellery, our focus is on teaching people how to become creative designer-makers.
Our school offers professional training and short courses tailored to suit beginners and advanced students. We teach traditional hands-on techniques together with a contemporary approach to design, and our students learn from highly experienced lecturers who can provide real-life insight into the world of jewellery.
We deliver courses that challenge and stretch your ability and expectations. Steeped in centuries-old methodologies, our approach to teaching cultivates a sense of curiosity, encouraging creativity and enriching the learning experience.
Our aim is to help every aspiring jewellery maker to tap into their own creativity and realise their dreams and ambitions. This supportive and nurturing environment is the perfect place to begin that journey.
“It is not a case of leaving with items one might be proud to wear, but to leave with the skills to continue to design and make jewellery for oneself and others in the future” Student, J Harvey
We are specialists in the field of jewellery making and jewellery education. Our lecturers are practicing designer-makers, so you can be assured that you will receive a high level of teaching and practical experience.
We provide a warm, supportive and creative environment. Our lecturers encourage all students to express their creativity through jewellery making. There is real joy in making beautiful pieces by hand and they share that enjoyment.
Located at the heart of Hatton Garden, the traditional jewellery quarter and creative heart of London, the school benefits from easy access to public transport.
Our studios are equipped with an extensive range of silversmithing and professional jewellery-making tools to enable a fully rounded learning experience.
Courses are practical and hands-on, ensuring that students are armed with strong making and design skills to support their continued progression following completion of their courses at the School of Jewellery Design, Vannetta Seecharran. We support students who want to set up their own studio or continue to higher education within the field.
Fabulous course and a great instructor - very small numbers means you get lots of one-on-one time with the instructor and there is a lot of flexibility around what you learn if you have any specific requests. There's an emphasis on getting it right, rather than just getting a piece out of it, which sets you up well if you're looking to take it further.
The Silver course is great beginners. Located in Hatton Gardens, the studio is full of tools and resources so there plenty of hands on action. Linda can answer any and all questions and is truly a maven of knowledge. Thanks VS School.
A great introduction to wax carving.
I have never done anything like this.
From a lump of blue wax I ended up with a funky chunky silver ring thanks to the teaching skills of Stelios.
The process is explained step by step with Stelios stepping in to help if you need it.
Overall a fantastic and worthwhile experience.
