I have been teaching for many years and enjoy it enormously. I have taught at a variety of venues from Bucks New University to local arts centres, schools, adult education and craft schools

I have now streamlined my teaching to my own Jewellery studio which has been set up to cater to the needs of students as well as my own work, I can take up to 5 people at a time and all the details of what is on offer is listed below, I also am a tutor of South Hill Park Art Centre where I teach four classes a week.

Current Classes

Private Classes

Venue Burnham Jewellery Studio
Availability As and when
I have space for private pupil sessions. Although not always exclusively one to one these lessons are geared for more regular lessons for people wanting to explore the world of jewellery making. If you are a beginner we will start off with the basics of measuring, cutting, soldering, designing etc. I will show you how to order materials and where to get the best prices. You will learn all the basic techniques needed to create your own beautiful designs and then pick and choose the techniques to help define your style. We will look at stone setting, torch enamelling, chain making, texturing, the world really is your oyster. I do not claim to know everything but I do know the workshop has most of the tools you need and lots of trick and tips to pick up. If you are more experience we can discuss your needs even if it is just to use more specialist tools or learn more advanced techniques. Sessions are usually two hours long and arranged to fit in with your schedule. Longer sessions are also available. Cost: £12.50 per hour with a minimum of a two hour session and include disposables and tea, coffee and biscuits. Metal and stones are available to buy at cost price.

Weekend Workshops Full Day

Venue Burnham Jewellery Studio
Availability As and when
I offer a range of weekend workshops, normally these are run 10am to 4pm with a lunch break (bring a packed lunch) I run these classes on an individual basis so can be geared around your own needs from beginners to advanced. In the past year of running these weekend workshops I have run beginners days for groups of friends, families, parent and child days and couples. I can also supply gift certificates if you wanted to send someone a special gift and they can contact me to arrange a date. Most classes have been for beginners where we will learn how to make a simple textured ring in the morning and then on to make bangles, spinner rings or simple tube set rings however saying that I have had people make all manner of items it really comes down your own wishes. Silver and stones are not included in the price but are sold at cost price. Cost: £85 per person for the full day class including disposables, full tuition and tea, coffee and biscuits.
