Workshops

"but I'm not creative..." - I hear this from so many people but I say everyone has creativity within them! You just need the opportunity, space and tools to express that creativity. I am running workshops that will give you the skills to create your own unique piece of jewellery.  Details of my current workshops are below.

 

I look forward to meeting you and sharing my experience as a jewellery designer with you. Drop me a line if you have any questions or ideas for the sort of workshop you would like to attend.
