Since its inception 24 years ago, the Official Jewellers, Goldsmiths, Watchmakers and Gemologists School of Catalunya (Colegio Oficial de Joyeros, Orfebres, Relojeros y Gemólogos de Cataluña) is well known across Spain for developing future artisans and also for providing continuous training and development for professional jewellers and goldsmiths. They teach a wide range of topics and skills, ranging from general techniques used in jewellery making, to other craft trades closely related to it that are in danger of extinction, as well as working with new technologies.
