Polishing Masterclass

Polishing and finishing is a highly skilled craft. A professional finish will transform a piece of jewellery or silver into a work of art.

Stephen M Goldsmith FIPG MNGG is a renowned master polisher and we were honoured to welcome him to Hartlepool to open a 2 day course at Mark Lloyd School of Jewellery in March of 2019. Stephen’s course was the first at The Phrontistery of Alchemy and he was kind enough to open the school by cutting the ribbon at our launch event. The course was a real success and the 6 students, who attended and received their polishing certificates, were full of praise for the course. A hugely successful launch.
