jewellery

Don’t just buy your jewellery, design and create it yourself, or treat someone to a workshop as a present with a gift voucher. The jewellery workshops range from one day, weekend and six week courses and cater to beginners and more advanced students. Topics covered may be ring and bangle making, creating earrings, pendant and chain fabrication or more advanced projects such as stone settings and lockets for more advanced students.

Class size is small (max 6) so students can follow projects of their own choosing if they wish and all students get the chance to discuss their ideas thoroughly. The studio is a professional, dedicated teaching studio with all the tools needs to create your pieces of work.
