JEWELLERY MAKING WORKSHOPS
All workshops are taught by professional jeweller Jo Lavelle and are aimed as an introduction to making jewellery or for extending your jewellery making techniques. All workshops are in a welcoming environment with lots of chatter, tea, coffee & biscuits. Please bring an apron and bear in mind this is mucky work but very rewarding!
Each workshop is limited to just 4- 6 people to ensure a supportive and nurturing experience for all. Workshops include use of all equipment and materials. Weekday evening workshops & weekend workshops are available but please get in touch if you would like to book weekday workshops.
Refreshments and biscuits are available but please provide your own lunch if you are coming for the day.
Come along and join me in the workshop for a creative, educational and inspiring day.
All workshops take place at Local Creation in Altrincham unless otherwise stated.
