About our Workshops

Our range of classes will allow you to explore contemporary jewellery design and practices in a relaxed, inviting space. Whether you’re completely new to jewellery-making or have some experience, you’ll be free to delve into the design process through our wealth of tools, techniques and materials.

We offer classes that investigate the simple concepts of rings, earrings, necklaces, pendants, bracelets and more. You’ll experiment with a variety of methods such as wax carving and casting, hand forging and material exploration.

Our goal is to help you feel inspired, have fun and take home a piece of jewellery that’s deeply personal and original.
