What you'll learn in this gold class:

Gold has always held a fascination for its beauty throughout history. Pure Gold is a bright yellow metal called 24 karat and made up only of itself. In this class students learn age old methods of alloying pure gold to make 22 karat, 18 and 14 karat gold in colors ranging from peachy reds and tangerine yellows to green gold. 

Once the alloying is completed students learn about the ductility of the metal, its properties and the different methods of working the material to produce a beautiful piece of handmade gold jewelry. 

Due to the high market costs of gold we invite students to recycle their old gold into new and exciting works. 

An email confirmation will be sent once you purchase your private lesson.

To confirm amount of gold available to be recycled and get a feel of what you wish to create with the material, please call/email before purchasing this private and schedule an appointment to review the pieces you'd like to have recycled.

Please Note:

  • There is a chance old gold can be contaminated with too much solder or with unknown alloys and will not be able to be recycled. We can not predict this and will not know until we have started the recycling process - if that is the case, we can offer to send your gold to a refinery and get bought gold at market price for you to complete the class on another day, or get a refund for the unused hours. 
  • The selected date is not confirmed until you receive and email from the school. 
  • Scheduling for private lessons is flexible and subject to the instructor's availability. 
  • If the instructor is unavailable during the date or time originally booked, CourseHorse and the class provider will help arrange for a reschedule that works for both parties. 
  • Once a date and time is decided on, the class provider's standard cancellation policy applies. 
  • In the event that schedules don't match up and a date and time cannot be scheduled, students are entitled to a refund.

Couldn't find a schedule that works for you? Please reach out to CourseHorse and we'll be happy to assist.

Gold Recycling & Alloying 4 Hour Private Workshop for 2
Reviewed by Anonymous on 2/11/2018
We had a great experience at our private gold recycling class. Sue is a great teacher who provided the right balance between giving direction and letting us guide our own project. She also was very responsive to emails prior to the class which helped us come in with a plan. Would highly recommended.
