Absolute beginners can discover metalsmithing for the first time under the guidance of silversmith Jemica Ostrofski at this casual class in Petrie. In this hands-on workshop, you will learn how to design and fabricate textured jewellery using recycled metals.

This workshop was great. Meeka was enthusiastic and easy going with her instruction. She was quick to step in if you were doing something incorrectly. This made me very comfortable as we were dealing with tools that could cause injury. I learned a lot and enjoyed the experience. Plus a beautiful pair of earrings in the end. It was definitely worth the cost.

Excellent class, Jemica was helpful and informative, constantly checking in and and giving tips. Would highly recommend her classes!
Workshop space was good for a small class with easy parking. We also were provided with a really delicious light lunch.
The location was pretty far from me in Ipswich but left very happy with it all.
