Your host, Work-Shop is COVID-19 aware

This means that this teacher won't run a class if they've had flu symptoms in the last 14 days, and will adhere to relevant state restrictions (e.g. on maximum number of students per class)

Also, this class has a flexible cancellation/rescheduling policy, so participants are encouraged not to attend if they are unwell

Under the guide of silversmith Jemica Ostrofski, learn how to design and fabricate textured jewellery using recycled metals. The basic metalsmithing techniques of mark-making will be explored using various hammers, letter stamps, number stamps and other tools. You will then have the opportunity to create your own unique design.

This intro style workshop will run for three hours in which you will have the option of making – a pendant, earrings, cuff links, or brooch. This workshop hosts a maximum of 15 students, ensuring everyone gets the most out of a session.

Please note: This class requires at least five students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class



Aside from this class, Work-Shop also has the following coming up:



What you'll get

  • Sheet of recycled Aluminium/Copper/Brass

  • Additional recycled metals that could be used

  • Findings to turn creation into jewellery

  • Industrial strength glue

  • Gift Box / Pouch to store your creations in


What to bring

  • All necessary tools and materials will be provided on the day, however, feel free to bring along any other found metals and see if they can be incorporated – napkin holders, cutlery, metal crockery etc.

  • Imagery of any jewellery ideas you might like to draw inspiration from

  • Pen and paper to take note

  • Enclosed shoes

  • No loose items of clothing (as they may get caught in equipment)

  • Hair tied back

Meekz Contemporary Jewellery is the independent label of Queensland based silversmith Jemica Ostrofski. In 2009 Jemica graduated from the Queensland College of Art with a Bachelor of Fine Art with First Class Honours, after majoring in Gold and Silversmithing and gaining a passion for minimalist sculptural form.

Adopting an ethically responsible and environmentally friendly practice, all Jemica’s collections are made using recycled, found and repurposed materials. Using traditional silversmithing techniques Jemica transforms the everyday into something unique and beautiful.

Jemica runs workshops in metal texturing (mark-making with metal), recycled wire weaving (our signature jewellery style of wire manipulation and weaving), riveting and hand sawing (traditional riveting and hand sawing skills), copper ring making (metal texturing and ring making techniques) and traditional ring making for two (traditional soldering techniques used in ring making).

Love that’s it’s accessible and easy to be guided through because I know nothing about making jewellery.
