(Bird pendant by a clever Woodford student)

I loooove teaching, 'cos I get such a kick out of seeing what people make after just a few hours of learning new techniques. A couple of days ago I had a visit from Jenny and Steph, who did a term's-worth of silversmithing classes with me and turned up at the studio wearing all of the fabulous bling that they had made. Hello instant family heirlooms!

I'm teaching a four-hour beginners' silversmithing class on 10th October from 10am-2pm at Kiln Gallery in Paddington, Brisbane. You'll design and make a pendant or ring in sterling silver and you'll be wearing it by the time you walk out the door. Cost is $50 which covers all tools and materials. Please phone Kiln Gallery to book your place on 3876 6903, or email

We're gonna have fun! Come and play!

*UPDATE... within a couple of hours the class has all sold out! By popular demand, a second class will be held the next day, Sunday 11th October. Yahoo! Book now, folks!*

Hello, do you ever offer one on one tuition in silversmithing at all? Thank you :)

Hi Emma!

I don't this year, but we're building a purpose-built studio at our house at the moment... (I may have mentioned that in the blog once or twice or a hundred times)... so I'm looking at running classes there next year. Drop me your details on email via my website if you're interested, and I'll get in touch!
