Our garage workshop in Erskineville caters for small classes of 1-5 students at a time, each with their own bench space. All the workshops are taught by Lauren in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Lauren is a fully trained Silver Smith with over 15 years experience in jewellery design and making.

Let your imagination and creativity guide you while you hammer, bend, saw, sand, file, texture and polish your very own pieces of jewellery. All our workshops are for beginners or anyone with prior experience. Everyone will leave with a sense of achievement and their newly learnt skills of silversmith jewellery making.

Loved this workshop! It was a great introduction to jewelry making as we were able to choose our own designs and end up with something super personal. Lauren is a great teacher, she had a lot of patience and made sure to spend time with everyone in the class.

Loved how helpful the teacher was and open to us creating unique pieces. Loved how small the class was too. Would recommend.

Lauren was very helpful and extremely organised. Everything was set up for students, and there were only 4 of us so Lauren was able to assist us individually. There was sufficient structure to ensure focused learning, with opportunities for choice and variation in what the students were making. With Lauren's guidance, we each produced a pair of earrings and a ring, all using silver wire. Highly recommended for all beginners and those interested in silver jewellery! AAA++++

Bettina Kristiaman Jun 2021

I enjoyed my session. It was great that the class wasn't too big so it was easy to get help and support. I guess it's just tricky if you have a cat allergy cos it held in an apartment, so a dose of claratyne would help before class. The teacher was very friendly, approachable and nice. Overall it was a fun couple hours!

Thank you Lauren for such a great class. You were a very patient and knowledgeable teacher! It was good to learn in your studio and be able to see where you work, and get to use the same materials. Great value for money - walked away having had a really enjoyable evening, with my handmade ring and earrings and new skills.

Natalie Snowden Oct 2019

Highly recommended! We had lots of fun at Lauren’s delightful place creating earrings and a ring. Lauren was kind and patient, and a very good teacher. You walk away with some cute jewellery and a feeling of accomplishment. 5*

Fantastic class! All materials and tools were provided. Lauren was a great teacher and walked us through all the steps on making silver jewellery. As there was only two of us, we were able to make 3 small pieces of jewellery.

Amber Oct 2019

Ayana was so helpful and patient while I awkwardly tried to smoulder my jewellery pieces together (2 x rings, and 1 pair of earrings). Would definitely recommend if you were ever curious about this wonderful hobby/skill. I plan to go back and try my luck at a few more pieces. The resident cats are super adorable and make for great company.

I loved doing this cosy & fun workshop with my friend, on a chilly weeknight evening. Lauren is lovely and a very helpful teacher! I didn't think that I had any silver smith skills but I left with pretty pieces. Than you, Lauren.

Cass Houlihan Jul 2019

I did this workshop with my sister and we absolutely loved it. We learnt how to create a template of our design, handsaw, solder, drill, file and hammer our silver pieces, finishing with two sets of beautiful earrings each. Lauren is an experienced silversmith and a great teacher, her studio space is quiet and peaceful and she generously provided us with tea, coffee and snacks. Highly recommend this workshop.

Fiona Setu Jul 2019

I really enjoyed this class and also the resulting earrings! The teacher was patient and gave individual support to each of us. It was great there were only 4 students so you had the time and assistance to complete the earrings in the style you chose. I would highly recommend to others

I couldn't be happier with the quality of this workshop! Lauren is a very warm and patient teacher who encourages participants to be creativite and make jewellery that is really individualised and unique. Lauren provided me with ongoing assistance throughout the lesson whilst allowing me to feel completely in control of my design and end product. I am already planning to book another class ASAP as I had such a wonderful time!

Friendly, easy going class! Great atmosphere, small group numbers allowed for enough support to make 2 items really well!
