Masterful Makers - Luxury DIY Workshops.

The Art of being a maker!

Makers take raw materials and transform them into objects of desire. It is an art form, it is a craft, and it can be taught.

Come and experience a workshop with Masterful Makers. In as little as 5 hours you can walk out with a piece of handmade jewellery crafted by yourself, a luxurious leather bag, a stunning knotted mala, or your own personalized luxury skincare products.

I am Victoria White, a one-woman dynamo/mad scientist/designer, & maker of crafts. Coming from an Art History background, my love for art, the history of man, and pretty shiny things came together while being pregnant with my daughter and working for the Museum of African American Art in Florida. I fell in love with African trade beads. They were historical in context, heavy with human drama, an artefact, an antique, pretty, and were relatively cheap. Pairing the few trade beads I had with semi-precious stones and sterling silver wire, I began to make my first wrapped earrings for fun. It was very therapeutic and relaxing until my husband at the time saw the box of earrings I had made, took them to work, and presented me with a box of money that afternoon, after having sold them all to his work colleagues! And that is how all this madness began. That was a bit over 25 years ago. And here we are now.

I am not your typical jeweller. I aim for grand pieces with fabulous stones, thus the term rockstar. The rocks I deal with are sparkly and precious. I own and manage Gems, Rocks, Bling in Sydney, working from my Surry Hills studio. I specialise in bespoke one of a kind pieces featuring precious stones & metals. I also facilitate jewellery classes for groups and individuals.

My first love is of course jewels, but leather is a close second. I revel in the feel of beautiful buttery leather and discovered I loved creating items from it when I decided to make and design packaging for my jewellery.

My 12 year old son and I just loved Victoria’s class. We learnt so much in a day and to come away with a silver ring each that we crafted ourselves is fantastic. Every step of the way Victoria guided us while giving us the freedom to be creative, get familiar with all the tools and enjoy the day. Highly recommend for anyone. My son gave the day a 10 out of 10... and he is a hard critic!!

Victoria was lovely and helped me and the other student throughout to make sure our rings were perfect, while making us feel comfortable and at home. All materials were provided and we had lots of options to choose from. It was a lovely experience with something to take home and remind me of my time in Sydney. I would definitely recommend that you take part in one of Victoria's many workshops!

Victoria was an amazing teacher for my 11 year old boy, who came to her class for the day. She was patient, full of knowledge and made the experience a great one. Highly recommended her class for anyone who has a keen interest in jewelry making. We will absolutely be booking in another class again. Thank you Victoria!

The class was so fun and we learned so much! Class size was small so we’d had a lot of personal instruction. Instructor was knowledgeable, welcoming and fun! She gave us tea and played fun music and even used two different techniques to accommodate for the desires of the other two taking the workshop. We learned both a traditional silver shaping method as well as a metal clay method. Would recommend this class to anyone!

I really loved the class. Victoria is a lovely teacher, she's very thorough and can really transmit her passion for ring making to the student. The class is in her living room with kitchenette, which makes it really cozy.
You will learn all of the steps of making a ring, perform some of the activities (Sawing, Annealing, bending the silver etc..) and for the majority of the tasks you will rely on Victoria's expert hands to get to your very own hand-crafted silver ring. Recommended!
FAQ
I am wondering if people ever make their own wedding bands this way?
Sam

Congratulations, Yes, this is an ideal way to create your own wedding bands. The course would be a bespoke one for you and your partner, and we would spend some time discussing ideas, materials(combinations of), stones to be incorporated if desired. Also, the costs would be determined based on what metals you choose to use.
We could keep it elegantly simple, or get quirky and cute. Just in get in touch and we can discuss options. I am looking forward to hearing from you. 

1. Will we create a ring by the end of the course? 2. Will we be able to keep the ring we create? 3. I would be keen to create my own wedding band in white gold. Can I do it in this course and would it come at an extra charge?
Sam

Yes at the end of the course you will have created a ring and you will be able to keep it.
Yes we can create a wedding band in white gold, however you will have to purchase the gold necessary to create it.
