Workshop Weekends

Jewellery and silversmithing cOURSES

Our 3 day Workshop Weekend courses are a rare opportunity to work with Linda and Adrian in their professional workshop where you will take your own idea for a piece of jewellery or silverware and turn it in to reality. At the end of our course you will have a unique piece of art to take home. In addition you will will learn a range of skills and be able to continue working in your own space and time after the course.

Whether you are just starting out or a professional looking to learn specific techniques we will tailor the course to your needs.

COURSE Structure

Before the course begins we will provide you with a consultation to discuss your ideas about what you would like to make and what you would like to learn. We will then help you develop your ideas in the lead up to the course, typically via phone or e-mail.

The course begins with morning tea and introductions. Over the 3 days you will receive intensive tuition and guidance. The experience is unique to every student as we will work closely with you on your own ideas to turn them in to reality.
