Welcome to the York School of Jewellery website

York School of Jewellery is an independent school of jewellery and silversmithing and the largest service provider of classes and courses in jewellery, silversmithing and design in the North of England. We have a reputation for teaching and success second to none. The quality of tuition and facilities are reflected in the standard of the work produced by our students.

Definitions of terms on this website and used by other professional bodies and websites

Jewellery - Any item that is body adornment and can be made in any material including bone, wood, metal clay, stone, silver, gold, palladium, platinum.

Silversmithing - Any item that is made of silver that is not body adornment e.g. goblets, teapots, chalices etc

Goldsmithing - Any item made of gold that is not necessarily jewellery - see silversmithing above.





Please note that due to demand, at certain times we run two classes (in different workshops) at the same time. Goldsmithing and jewellery making processes (and allied disciplines) are taught in all classes. Where you see + silversmithing we also provide tuition in silversmithing.
