Silver Jewellery Making Workshop for Beginners

Design and make your own silver jewellery



2.5 hours Class size 1 to 4

label $120 (or 4 payments of $30 Afterpay)

In this intimate four-person workshop, Sarah will guide you through learning the traditional techniques to make your own silver jewellery. This workshop is aimed to be a fun creative experience and you require no prior jewellery making or metalworking experience to produce a beautiful piece of jewellery you will treasure for years to come.

Over three hours you will create your own Sterling Silver Ring, Set of Earrings, or Pendant in a design of your own style. You will be guided through the process at your own pace, from designing your custom piece, marking out your design, cutting, forging, soldering, sanding, texturing and then finally finishing your new treasure.

Sarah knows that once you start working with semi-precious metals you'll be hooked! So in order to ensure you are able to create further projects at home on the completion of your class, there is a strong focus on using tools that are readily available and you are able to set up at home.

The cost of all your materials including your Sterling Silver is included in the cost of this class!

Sarah Munnings was working in the corporate world of finance and when she was struck down by a devastating mystery illness. Tests, more tests, and months of trips to doctors led to the diagnoses of Fibromyalgia (a chronic pain condition). This led to Sarah to rediscover her creativity as her own personal form of rehabilitation and become a self-taught jeweller who developed a table top jewellery practice in her kitchen.

She now teaches others the amazing creations that can be made using copper, silver and brass. She uses traditional techniques of forging, soldering and texturing metal, and is passionate about using tools that are easily accessible so that her guests at workshops can continue their journey of discovery at home.

Sarah was fantastic, she was very relaxed and cheerful. We learned the basics which was good - now I want to keep learning! Sarah was very generous and we were able to make as many pieces that we could fit into the time we had. Everything was supplied. We had 4 in our class which was perfect, any more than that might have been difficult as we couldn’t all have Sarah’s attention at once! We made a couple of pieces each and they are amazing. I will treasure and wear them for years to come.

Amazing class. Relaxed, but learnt many basic silversmithing skills including soldering. Teacher is very skilled, patient, and down-to-earth. You can choose what you want to make and you are guided throughout the process. Very happy I attended. Good value for money. Location was lovely. Recommended!

Eloise Berry Apr 2021


This was such an amazing class I had never done anything like this but just had the best time and learnt so much! I had anticipated it would be much harder than it was and was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was and how much fun we had! Sarah was such an amazing teacher and explained everything so well! We were able to make whatever we wanted and she was there to guide us in how to best go about making what we wanted. During the 3 hours I was able to make two sets of earrings and a ring. Cannot recommend more Also loved exploring Kyneton before the class, was a lovely day trip!

Kate O'Sullivan Feb 2021

Sarah was so helpful and kind. Wonderful small class so feels very personalised. Defiantly perfect for beginners, loved every minute of it! Thank you!

Sarah Macdonald Jan 2021


Sarah was such a great teacher and only having four people in the class meant that you got a lot of attention from her. It was great to have all the examples provided to give some inspiration. I made two pairs of earrings which I absolutely love. Highly recommend

Thoroughly enjoyed this workshop. Venue excellent .
Lots of help from Sarah but all able to design our own pieces of jewellery. Absolutely value for money as came away with more than one piece of jewellery.
Highly recommend this work shop.

Deb Turner Jan 2021


My friend & I both thoroughly enjoyed Sarah’s workshop & were pleasantly surprised at the standard of the pendants & rings we made. She was very informative & encouraging. We’d happily recommend her Silver Jewellery Making class to others.

Margaret Dec 2020


My first go at working with silver and metals and it was very engrossing once I got started. One on one method was effective with a small class of 4 and I would really recommend this as a good opportunity to try a new craft and also take home a couple of completed and very professional looking pieces of jewellery! Margaret

Paula Harris Dec 2020


Highly recommend this wonderful Silver Jewellery making workshop! Sarah Munnings, the teacher, creates a lovely relaxed learning environment, that’s very collaborative, informative and supportive. She has all the equipment you’ll need to create your beautiful personalised bespoke silver pieces. In 3hrs I managed to finish four keepsake pieces. I’ll be doing one of her classes again for sure! Loved it!
