Jewellery Making and Mending Course: Repair and Recreate

Learn how to repair and restring your heirloom jewellery



2 x 3 hours Class size 6 to 10     label $195

Learn timeless jewellery techniques with specialist jeweller and silversmith Danielle.

Knot pearls, gemstones or beads, or use tiger tail and French wire clasps to repair, restring and recreate your heirloom jewellery.

Have you got a string of pearls, gemstones, crystals or beads from your Grandma, mother, great aunts or any sentimental beads to be re-strung? Learn durable techniques that will stand the test of time and give your pieces a new life. Recycle any strand of beads to recreate a wearable piece using silk thread, tiger tail and/or French wire for a professional finish that you will be proud of.

Perhaps you have a three-string piece that you would like to divide up for family members? Or a necklace to make into two smaller bracelets? The options are endless!

This class will take place across two sessions of three hours each.

Teaching sewing skills that will last a lifetime. Learn to sew and mend with knowledgable, patient teachers in a friendly, inclusive environment. All ages, genders and abilities welcome!

The School of Sewing & Upcycling began in 2015. We set up in a small shop in Buckley Street, Footscray and began to share our love of sewing with you. In 2019, we shifted to our current home right on the border of Footscray and Yarraville – a big, bright and welcoming space where many people come to hone their sewing skills.

In February 2023, Zoe took over the business from Gaye (who still teaches) and in May 2023 moved into new space in Whitehall Street, Footscray.

At SOSU, we believe that sewing is a wonderful life skill and we want to share it with you. Learning how to alter and mend the things that you have as well as learning the skills to create your own gorgeous garments will help you to be more creative and sustainable. We offer a wide range of full and half-day workshops or ongoing courses that will build, refresh or consolidate your sewing skills. We have a great mix of beginner and skilled sewers of all ages learning at our school. We can also arrange private lessons for those that learn better one-on-one. It’s just you and your teacher so that you can really get into that special project.
