In your first class, you will learn how to make your very own silver ring and from there, you can design your own pieces that you want to make.

People who are already doing jewellery classes will get first preference of what class they want to book. If you are unable to find a jewellery class you are wanting, send us an email and we can give you some options or put you on a waitlist for that class.
