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
