Health & safety - is there anything I should be aware of?

The jewellery workshop contains tools and equipment which should always be used with care.

The tutor will instruct you how to use these safely.

Follow these simple rules for a safe and healthy workshop.


  • Aprons will be provided to protect your clothes.

  • Wear closed toed shoes.

  • Hang coats on the hooks, not on the back of a chair, and make sure bags and tool boxes are kept under the bench to avoid tripping.

  • When soldering be aware of where you are pointing the flame. The soldering block and the tip of the torch may be hot, be careful not to touch them.

  • Protect your eyes with safety specs when soldering, drilling or polishing.

  • The extractor fan should be on while soldering.

  • Long hair should be tied back and scarves or dangly jewellery removed when soldering, polishing or drilling.

  • A fire extinguisher is located on the wall to the right of the exit. In the event of a fire evacuate the studio and move a safe distance away and call for assistance.
