Friday Assisted Bench Hire Wellington

  • 3 hours
  • 55 New Zealand dollars
  • 65 Abel Smith St

Service Description

If you are not an experienced student, or when you require assistance or supervision (for example for melting down your clean silver or gold scrap) you will need to book an Assisted Hire - $55 for the 3 hour session. Please remember that while your session is able to last longer than 3 hours, you need to negotiate with your technician when you will require help, as your tech is only available over a 3 hour period. These sessions are for those who are moving towards being able to work independently, or if you have just a little tricky bit you need help with. Assisted bench hire is the best of both worlds. Mostly unsupervised, but with the ability to ask the occasional question or have help with things like firing enamels, stone setting or soldering. Please note: this is NOT a session to do something you have never done before. It is not a class. If you need more one-on-one help, we ask you book a private tuition session. If you want to book to do a melt you must have done a Torch Safety session with one of our tutors to go over how to use the Smith-Torch. This session usually takes 1.5 hours of one-on-one and is essential for health and safety. Once you have taken this session, you can then book an assisted hire for when you do your melts in the future.
