* Masterful Makers - 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 learned!

Come and experience a workshop with Masterful Makers. In as little as two hours you can walk out with a piece of handmade jewellery, leather bag, stunning knotted mala or your own personalised skincare products. All designed and crafted by you!

Let me introduce myself, I am Victoria White, a one-woman dynamo/mad scientist/designer and maker of crafts. I am the owner of Masterful Makers and offer boutique workshops from my studio.

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 and heavy with human drama. They were an artefact, an antique and pretty. Pairing the few trade beads I had with semi-precious stones and sterling silver wire I began to make my first wrapped earrings.

It was very therapeutic and relaxing until my husband (at the time) saw the box of earrings I had made and took them to work. He returned that afternoon and presented me with a box of money, 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 have my BA in art history and a Diploma in Visual Arts and Silversmithing.

I use my workshops to pass on my skills and knowledge so that you too will see just how enjoyable being a Maker can be. Coming away with personally designed and created pieces.

I am Victoria White and Making is my passion, let me make it yours as well.

Come and experience a Masterful Makers Workshop!

Teacher is so friendly but the teaching and the learning part was FastTrack and overwhelming, it was only me attending the class which I didn't enjoy. I thought there will be a group with me. I didn't like that the place had a pet and I wasn't informed about it prior booking. Thanks

I really enjoyed this class with Victoria . I tried zoom but Victoria was kind enough to suggest that I was better off visiting her studio . She taught me techniques that was important in making a Mala ( can be used for any necklace making too) allowing for my own creativity. I would definitely recommend this class .

Small Leather Class One



I had a great morning with Victoria who showed me the steps in making a simple leather card holder. In her busy workshop, I got to use a nice soft black leather, shown how to punch holes for stitching, how to stitch, finish the edges of the leather then adding chrome clasp. I look forward to going again for something more challenging. Highly recommended!

I had such a fun experience learning how to make a silver ring in this class - and Tiara the pug was a great help! The teacher was very knowledgeable, had every tool imaginable, was well set up, and was happy to answer all of my questions and go with the flow on the day. For anyone who's been wanting to start learning how to make their own jewellery for a long time, this is the perfect place to start and it's not an intimidating class/workspace at all.

This workshop was absolutely fantastic. I learnt so much about silver smithing and Victoria was very helpful, knowledgeable and experienced. She was so patient and let's you explore whatever creative ideas you have and helps you achieve it. It was a really nice environment and lots of options for designing your ring. Thank you so much Victoria for such a wonderful class, I love my ring!

Make and Design Your Own Gemstone Mala Workshop



My friend and I attended the Mala making class. We found the address, no problems, but had to ring Victoria's mobile to find out how to get in. Victoria was very welcoming and is a very good, and patient, teacher. We had fun making our Malas and we both bought more beads to make another one at home. It was definitely good value and I would recommend it

Rockstar Stone Setting DIY Jewellery Workshop



It says on the website, *9kt gold is included as part of the course. 14k or 18k is available but will have to be purchased,But once I arrived I was told gold would cost me extra.This is false advertising & feel taken advantage of I won’t be wearing my ring as it is a reminder.I paid $420 for a ring I could buy for $120.I will be complaining to class bento.


Reply from this teacher:

Hello Kelly,
Thank you for your review.
We are sorry to hear that you had a less than desirable experience. We were happy to get in touch and resolve this for you.
Kind regards,

Had the most lovely afternoon with the extremely talented Victoria! She was so charismatic, funny and kind, and extremely supportive! Went through things clearly both verbally and with examples and was generous with her knowledge throughout. The venue was lovely, nice and open air, although would probably only recommend for 2-3 people. The materials were high quality and she clearly knew what she was talking about.

I loved this class! Victoria was an exceptional entertainer and clearly knew all the ins and outs of candle making. We learned how to make the candles of course but the really useful things we learnt were what not to do when trying it out at home. The experience was fab, bonus points for meeting Tiara, the workshop pug.

I wanted to learn how to make a ring properly, and we did exactly that. I love the ring that I made I've put a progress photo below. The class was in Victoria's house / workshop.

I loved this experience with Victoria. Victoria is so down to earth, caring, and friendly. Although I did drop the meat thermometer in the lovely hot wax once - by accident; Victoria remained cool, calm and collected. Overall we had a great time, and built great rapport. The fragrances used are extensive, yet so fun to sniff out. Victoria is so knowledgeable when it comes to all aspects of candle making; as well as helping me apply the practical side. I believe I am now confident when it comes to the steps on making quality soy blends, and where  + more

My daughter (8 Years old) and I did the mala class together one Saturday. She loved being able to pick her colours, beads, tasseletc. It was pretty straightforward, only took us 1.5 hours and we created pieces we both loved. I don't think I'd pay $300 again but was a special day and my daughter was very happy with the end result. The teacher was great.

Victoria was an amazing teacher who added her own twist to the whole process of making a ring. She let us share her passion and sent everyone home with a smile and amazingly some bling that deserved to be worn!

Victoria is a very good teacher. She communicates well I learned quite a bit about making a basic ring and I participated in the making of the ring. For me it was a positive and rewarding experience. I also made an awesome birthday present for my partner

Make and Design Your Own Gemstone Mala Workshop



The teacher was very lovely and patient, she offered a warm and comfortable environment. I am happy with how my mala turned out. I gather she was not as well-prepared for this class, as I did not receive the workbook. And just now after looking at other feedback with photos of their malas, it appears some extras others had on their malas were not available to me. My session only went for 2 hours, perhaps because I was the only one in the class, but for quite an expensive class of $150 I didn't feel I quite got my money's worth. This was just my  + more

Make and Design Your Own Gemstone Mala Workshop



Victoria has many creative talents which she fortunately shares with her students, her amazing designer Malas are on display for inspiration. The class was small just the 3 of us which allowed for sufficient one on one tuition when needed. For the Mala making class Victoria welcomed us with herbal teas and presented an excellent selection of colourful beads, threads, tassels and accent silver pieces. We all left the class with our own unique personal completed Mala - which was fantastic and I now look forward to making more as gifts. I  + more

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!

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  + more

Victoria and her assistant were fantastic with our boys (ages 9,11yrs) she had them completely engaged the whole time with detailed information and activities. They loved cracking the geode rocks and they loved making the silver necklaces and learning about different types of rocks and how they are formed. We hope to have Victoria back again.

I spent a great day with Victoria making a stunning ring - she explained everything extremely thoroughly. We got on very well, she made me a delicious lunch and as the finishing touches to my piece were quite tricky, she personally delivered it to my hotel the next day. If are interested in jewellery/specifically ring making - this is a really lovely place to start your journey!

Make a Leather Coin Purse



I made a coin bag and earphone holder. Really enjoyed the class. Victoria is very friendly and funny. She gave us a lot of insights and useful tips to leather product making. Good selection of tools and leather to use for projects. She ensured that tools are used safely and gave plenty of help so that her students have a finished product to show off at the end . For more complicated projects, best to book earlier so that the teacher has time to prepare patterns ahead of time. Thanks for the wonderful experience Victoria!

Make a Ring in a Day DIY Workshop



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!

Victoria is a wonderful teacher. She has some beautiful pieces and very experienced. It was nice to learn how to put together a Mala with her. I enjoyed using the Chakra cards to help me determine which crystals I could use, and as you can see from the pic, you have no idea what the finished product will look like once you start working with different crystals which makes it more fun.
