    You can attend this class any time, as it's in regional Victoria, and hence unaffected by Melbourne's restrictions

For those who have completed one of Sarah Munnings silver workshops this intermediate class will teach you how to create a bezel setting and set a gemstone into your own piece of jewellery.

Over two and a half hours you will learn to build on your prior skills to create a custom bezel for your chosen gemstone and how to turn it into your own Sterling Silver Ring or Pendant in a design of your own style. You will be guided through the process at your own pace, from designing your custom piece, marking out your design, cutting, forging, soldering, sanding, texturing and then finally finishing your new treasure.

Sarah knows that once you start working with semi-precious metals you'll be hooked! So in order to ensure you are able to create further projects at home on the completion of your class, there is a strong focus on using tools that are readily available and you are able to set up at home.

The cost of all your materials including your Sterling Silver and your gemstone is included in the cost of this class!

Sarah Munnings


Sarah Munnings was working in the corporate world of finance and when she was struck down by a devastating mystery illness. Tests, more tests, and months of trips to doctors led to the diagnoses of Fibromyalgia (a chronic pain condition). This led to Sarah to rediscover her creativity as her own personal form of rehabilitation and become a self-taught jeweller who developed a table top jewellery practice in her kitchen.

She now teaches others the amazing creations that can be made using copper, silver and brass. She uses traditional techniques of forging, soldering and texturing metal, and is passionate about using tools that are easily accessible so that her guests at workshops can continue their journey of discovery at home.

The Old Auction House is an independently run multi-use arts precinct located in the regional Victorian town of Kyneton, just an hour north of Melbourne. Housed in a historic weatherboard building, which served as the much loved Ferris auction rooms for over 80 years, the precinct opened in April 2017 and is home to a variety of artistic spaces.

The Old Auction House is currently home to a retail shop specialising in quality Australian handmade items, four working artist studios including local glass artists Leadlight By Ettore, a teaching space for visiting artists, and two gallery spaces with rotating exhibitions.

The Old Auction House is open 7 days and the entire space has been renovated to be accessible for those with prams, wheelchairs, and mobility issues.
