Booked private Tuition

Quotes I recently completed an introductory jewellery course (weekend course) with Eckart and absolutely loved it. Eckart gets the class stuck right into learning and practicing jewellery techniques after just a short introduction discussing safety, general warnings and work shop practices. I learnt so much in such a short space of time and Eckart went out of his way to see me complete my project. I have since built my own jewellery workbench and I am in the middle of sourcing my own tools. I have no doubt I will be back agin to learn more :) Quotes

Quotes Dear Eckart, I want to thank you for the wonderful four days that Suzy and I spent with you at your workshop way back in July. Coming from Christchurch in New Zealand I had high hopes for your course and it did not disappoint at all! Peregian was a beautiful destination for a holiday too! Thanks so much for recommending that we also do a days private tuition to follow the beginners course. I feel by adding this day it really made the most out of our trip. Your beginners course was exactly what I had hoped for ? I left feeling confident with a strong set of key techniques on which to build on. The following day of private tutoring was the highlight of my trip. You are very generous with your knowledge and extremely patient. I still look at my fantastic claw setting ring with pure amazement that it was made in less than a day and a half! Thanks again Eckart. Kind regards, Kate Quotes

Quotes I just did the weekend jewellery making beginner course with Eckart! What a fantastic insight to silversmithing and jewellery making! I can't believe how much we covered, yet am soooo inspired to want to learn and do more. I had never really thought of making jewellery and therefore had zero experience, but came across Eckarts website, and as i have a huge interest in art and design i was totally hooked to complete a course. Eckart is very easy going and patient, he catered for different levels of abilities throughout the day. We came away with finished jewellery pieces ready to wear and show off to our friends and family!!! The orders are rolling in....... :D Thanks Eckart, this was a great weekend!!! Quotes
Attended a Weeken Beginners Course

Quotes "Being a good jeweller does not necessarily mean you are automatically a good teacher. And when you sign up for a jewellery course you want someone who is not only a great tradesman, but also a great trainer. Fortunately Eckart is both of these things. He is a great technician with the dedication and perfection of a true professional of his craft. But his course is extremely well structured - taking us rank amateurs through a carefully staged process that gave us both understanding and above all else left us with the inspiration to do more with our newfound skills. A brilliant weekend that I would thoroughly recommend to anyone." Cheers Mark Simmons Quotes
Attended a Weekend Beginners Course

Quotes Thank you Eckart for being so patient and helpful in my very first 1- on-1 jewellery making course. Not knowing much about working with silver, you gave me a great insight into what is involved and I now know that it is something I would love to continue working with. Doing a half day 1-on-1 course enabled to me to fit the most learning into to a short amount of time. Not only did you teach me the very basics of silver but also techniques that I will be able to use forever to continue to make amazing pieces of silver. To be able to make two pieces of perfect silver that I have made from scratch is something I am very proud of and will definitely be back for another course to work on what skills I have gained from my first course. I highly recommend this course to anybody who loves creating unique one off pieces that you can call your own. Thank you again Eckart, Tess Quotes

Quotes Thank you Eckart! I really enjoyed the course! Your mentoring was excellent and the group did have a great vibe. I thoroughly enjoyed it! Thanks for the news letter updates! I will keep saving for another course in the future!! :-) Regards Emma Quotes

Quotes 18 years ago I attended a jewellery making class at Eckarts studio in Noosa. With an excellent introduction to the technical processes I knew that jewellery making was what I wanted to do. With Eckarts encouragement I decided to study further with Qld College of Art in Brisbane where I graduated in Gold and Silversmithing in 2002. The formative training I received from Eckart was that which I regard as the most important. Attention to detail and the exactness of the craft which Eckart is determined to teach his students in a very personalised way was invaluable when I studied at Griffith Uni amid 20 other students in my class! I am ever so grateful for his continuing mentoring and technical advice and assistance whenever I needed it. I have continued to take short courses with Eckart over the years and appreciate someone of his skill and experience available to help me! Liz" Quotes
attended Courses many years ago...

Quotes "I was a complete amateur when I took part in classes with Eckart Schillings in November 2008. I had only made a few beaded items using silver and decided I needed to learn how to solder. Eckart taught me the basics of soldering silver and a lot of other information I needed regarding soldering and working with silver. I learnt a lot from him and have been using it ever since. I plan to go back for further lessons, specifically stone setting, as soon as I am able to and look forward to learning more from him. Thank you Eckart." Update from Helga , November 2009: " Dear Eckart, I just thought you may be interested in this. I was talked into entering a competion and submitted a chain and a pendant I had made as an experiment. There were about 50 entries and I came second with the Chain and third with the Pendant. As you can imagine I was over the moon with the result. Regards Helga Eder" Quotes
