In line with guidance we have reduced the number of students in our studios to 1 tutor with 8 students in two seperate studios and re-designed the space so that we can follow the new social distancing guidelines, we continue to use hand sanitiser and hand washing and to also sanitise the workbenches and tools between use. Each of our workbenches have been updated and now have secure, transparent perspex dividers. Our shared tools are used with sanitised hands and then hands sanitised again afterwards. We have removed the use of shared aprons and hand towels. We reassure you that we have followed all advice to keep our staff, students and customers safe and well.

A Term course that has been started but that needs to be paused during the course term, will result in either the choice of a gift voucher to the value of the classes missed, or the opportunity to redeem the classes missed at a later, safer date usually on a one day Saturday class from 10am – 5.30pm (this redeems the equivalent of 2 x 3 hour term classes) We always have several of these Saturday dates available each month. The same option is available for a Term course that has not yet started with the schedule starting as soon as possible and missed classes / Gift Vouchers offered to redeem missed classes.

A One Day Course that has been postponed due to a Covid-19 Lockdown will result in a Gift Voucher, for the full amount valid for 5 years, with alternative dates made available as soon as we are safe to re-open.

Full-Time Certificate, Foundation Course and Monday One Year students will be accommodated by redeeming classes missed as a group. 

The School of Jewellery Ireland was launched in 2011 at The National Craft & Design Fair in Dublin and has grown from strength to strength since then. In 2015 we added our Full-time One Year Certificate Course in Traditional Jewellery and Goldsmith Skills dedicated to Jewellery and Goldsmith Skills. The School is the creation of goldsmith Deirdre O'Donnell and teaches solid foundations in the Traditional Skills of the Goldsmith and Jeweller. In 2016 we are launched our One Year Full Time Higher Certificate as a follow on from our Certificate Course. 

The tutors at The School of Jewellery Ireland are perfectionists and value the time that each student is dedicating to these challenging but rewarding skills. This is reflected in the facilities provided in a homely, yet totally professional, atmosphere that compliments craft in its truest form.

The School of Jewellery Ireland is conveniently located in Dublin City Centre with parking, bus, train and Luas services on it's doorstep. The School is professionally run and the tutors are knowledgeable and enthusiastic. This balance encourages students to engage in these fascinating disciplines with confidence. 

The basis of all the craft courses is the same – persistence, care, perfection and technique will result in beautifully wearable pieces that will stand the test of time.  

There are morning, afternoon, evening, weekend, one day, Summer Courses in addition to our Full Time Courses that can fit into any busy or laid-back schedule.
