Professional Goldsmiths School

Vakschool Edelsmeden provides silversmith education, aimed at making jewelry. Our range of lessons includes various workshops, an extensive course and professional training to become a professional goldsmith.

The curriculums are open to beginners and (advanced) students. A highly qualified teaching team is connected to our vocational school. Our groups are small – up to eleven pupils – and the atmosphere is personal and informal. As an apprentice you get an extensive individual support, which we adjust to your level and the pace of your development. Two teachers are present in a fully occupied group of eleven pupils.

The curricula are mainly aimed at acquiring technical expertise. The craft is central. But those who want to develop more artistically, can be well supervised. Our teaching programs are also suitable for English and German speakers.

Vakschool Edelsmeden is located in the Pieter Aertszstraat 119 C in the pleasant Amsterdam district De Pijp. In the immediate vicinity of the vakschool you will find nice coffee bars and numerous small restaurants. The famous Albert Cuyp market is also within walking distance.
