Laminated Projects

A selection of beautiful cutting boards/serving platters made by Woodworking students this year – J.M. did our first-ever diagonal design! Students select their wood species, learn how to calculate board feet to price out a project, and design their dimensions. Great work, everyone!

Beach stone jewelry with Cheryl Jacobs!

Professional Jeweller Cheryl Jacobs came to our Jewelry 9/10 classes in December and shared some new skills with us! Students learned how to use diamond bits to drill through beach stones and glass, and created a piece that incorporated rivets, wire accents, etc. All beach stones collected from Denman Island (ocean-polished!). Thanks, Cheryl, and hope to see you next year!

Junior jewellers saw projects, Part 2

WOW! Most of the work featured here was the first time students ever used a jeweller’s saw! Students choose an image, transfer it to metal, and cut it all out by hand. Some students chose to try their hand at sweat-soldering two pieces together. Incredible work, everyone!

Junior Jewellers Saw projects, Part 1

WOW! Most of the work featured here was the first time students ever used a jeweller’s saw! Students choose an image, transfer it to metal, and cut it all out by hand. Some students, including K.M. in Grade 10 (the amazing orca) chose to try their hand at sweat-soldering two pieces together. Incredible work, everyone!

Guest Jeweller project

In Spring 2018, we had a professional jeweller and college instructor, Cheryl Jacobs, come into our class to talk about local advanced education and entrepreneurship in jewelry-making (See the “Other Awesome Resources” section on this website to view her work). Cheryl shared new skills with us, and worked with students in both Junior and Senior Jewelry. Pictured here are a variety of cuffs designed by students – these projects incorporated leather work, riveting, and texturing and tempering metal.
