The next dates for the Tony Tigg Setting Workshop are:

Saturday 18th & Sunday 19th January Setting Weekend

£235 per person for a weekend workshop. 

10 places maximum, materials are extra and will cost between £5-£12 payable on the day.

10:00-17:00

This course is designed for those who would like to learn the traditional art of stone setting, you will not be making the mounts. It is stutible for professional makers as well as though with little or no experience of stone setting who wish to learn the different setting styles; Claw, Rub-Over and Pave’.

Tony will also show you essential tool preparation and maintenance and help you cut your own set of setting tools.

Tools will be provided for all setting projects, but I would recommend bringing your own headband magnifier lens, as you will be working on a small scale.

All settings will be bought from Tony for a small cost per setting and you can undertake as many projects in the day as you are able to do.

The most famous piece Tony has set is Princess Diana engagement ring which is now the Duchess of Cambridge’s.

   

Rub-over, Claw and Pave’ setting Projects are below.

The day workshop costs £90 and the setting projects are extra, between £3-£9 each and to be purchased from Tony on the day. Or you can join a Saturday workshop and make your own ring or pendant to be set with Tony.
