the workshop gallery 

I offer a range of classes that will get you started with jewellery making! From beginner sessions to half day or full day courses and, when you know you just want to progress, 1:1 sessions  can be planned for you. Refreshments, teas, coffee and homemade biscuits, are included for all courses but bring your lunch  if booking for a full day.

The workshop is small but well equipped and you have full use of all tools and equipment needed. I am passionate about helping people find their creativity so do browse the range of courses and find one that suits you. Off road parking on gravel drive, with sloping walk to workshop.

Great for special occasions - for birthdays, a special way to mark retirement, make your own prom pendant and, for visitors to Hampshire, come and make your original souvenir! Handmade gift vouchers are available to give someone special a creative treat.

The regular pendant making weekends run throughout the year, but I can take bookings on dates to suit you for all my courses - please contact me for more information. The Events page has details of all scheduled sessions.

pendant making

A great way to get started with jewellery making. A lovely silver wire pendant, finished with a 50cm silver chain, made by you with simple hand tools. I add my experience and encouragement to your learning to achieve a great result. It is easy, great fun and a very special way to share some time with friends. A gift bag or box is included to complete your work.

Sessions are held on last weekend of every month throughout the year but there are some changes in August,  November and December. Go to Events for details. Sessions are 1 ½ hours at 10.00am; 11.30am; 1.30pm; 3.00pm. £30 pp, max per session is 4 – 6 people.

full day 

A day of discovery working with silver on projects that will bring so much satisfaction. The technical side of things is delivered through a carefully structured programme that is tailored to your design preferences...a bangle or bracelet, a pendant, some rings and earrings? Discussion about your choices are made before you start the course so make a booking and look forward to your day at the bench!

You can book a date to suit you but the workshop is equipped for 2 people so why not come with a friend and share the fun. Cost is £120 pp with silver charged per gram used. Handmade gift vouchers are available.

Taking Things Further

I can structure 1:1 teaching if you want to take your skills further, generally 3 hour sessions either morning or afternoon. This is ideal if you already have some experience and wish to develop technical and design abilities. My rate for teaching is £40 ph but consideration can be made for booking a series of sessions. Contact me to discuss how this could work for you. The workshop can also be hired for use by aspiring jewellers.

Absolutely fantastic-so much fun-a lovely supportive teacher. Thank you!

Excellent!! A great way to spend some time being creative, thanks…

Had a great time – loved the results!...
