Jewellery Workshops and Courses

 

 Other Workshops and Courses

Walk into a welcoming atmosphere where hands-on skills are developed in an informal and relaxed way. Our workshops are a great way to learn about the basics of jewellery making whilst allowing you to pursue further classes, projects, or personal development at a later stage.

We focus mainly on Recycling and Up-cycling. So bring any old, unused silver or gold jewellery, cutlery, or coins and we'll work with you through the process of designing and making some unique pieces. Our workshops cater for 1-4 people and are available in the following different packages:

Our one-day workshops are a great chance to get an insight into how we do what we do. We'll work with you to design and create up to two unique pieces.
