* 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 2 hours you can walk out with a piece of handmade jewellery, leather bag, stunning knotted mala or your own personalized skincare products. All designed and crafted by you!

Let me introduce myself, I am Victoria White, a one-woman dynamo/mad scientist/designer & 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!

Victoria has amazing knowledge of jewellery making and is a fabulous teacher. She has expertise across a vast range of metals, gemstones and the techniques involved in creating a stunning piece of jewellery from the materials available. She is also very mindful of the students vision of what they would like to create. The workshop was a wonderful experience.

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.

This class was so much fun! It was a really personal experience, and I learnt so much. Victoria is lovely, and she really took the time to make sure I came out with a piece of jewellery I will cherish forever. I definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to give this a go.

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!

This class with Victoria was the perfect hands on learning experience on the key skills for stone setting. Victoria is very knowledgeable and a master at her work and I feel lucky to have been able to learn from her. Not to mention the gorgeous ring made as a result of this class
