Register now for our Summer Workshops!
Making jewellery is an exploratory art, often the metals can change shape during the process, and you can go in a new direction. With skilled assistance you will have fun creating your very own unique jewellery with tools including blowtorches, dremels, hammers and the anvil.
All tools will be explained, and no experience is necessary.
We start by selecting the ring, earrings or pendant you wish to create. Please note this workshop does not include bangles or stone setting.
If you have a design or idea please contact us before the workshop to make sure we have time to bring this to life.
You will learn hands on how to use different tools, and techniques to create your piece.
Sarah has a laid back teaching style, when she first handled tools she was nervous and a little bit concerned about burning holes in the carpet, or not being strong enough. With most tools a light touch is enough to create your work.
What else you need to know;
You don’t need any experience for this activity, complete beginners are welcome. The session runs for three hours to allow time to polish your work. Wear comfortable clothes and shoes.
What to bring:
The class is a maximum of 6 people which allows for a lot of time with the instructor and sharing with other participants. It is a fun and intimate environment.

Sarah is a jeweller working with Sterling Silver, Copper, Brass and Abalone shell and has taught herself to drill, solder and smelt pewter.
Sarah did not consider herself a creative person until people repeatedly told her she was, and after a year or so she started to believe them. Looking back she acknowledges that she was always creating in some form, and never taking a traditional path. During her degree she was often found under bushes and in long grass looking for mounds and earthworks before recreating historic buildings using maps and aerial photography.
She now has a successful jewellery business: Sarah Munnings Jewellery, a registered patent for memorial lockets designed and made in Melbourne, regular market dates, has sold at Collective stores across Melbourne and loves running joint workshops with her friend and colleague Robyn.
