Jewellery Making Workshops


Jewellery Making Workshops

I no longer run scheduled workshops, please see the workshops I run with prices below and we can arrange a date to suit all.
My workshops are small, 2 to 3 people so a lot of individual tuition and attention.
I can accommodate 4 people if a small group workshop is required.
If you would like one to one tuition please email me to discuss prices, designs and dates.
My studio is located in The Biscuit Factory, Newcastle upon Tyne. The gallery is a beautiful Victorian building originally built to make ships biscuits for the bustling port of Newcastle, it now holds contemporary collections of art, craft and design. There is a wonderful cafe with sun terrace if you would like to combine your creative experience with good food.
