Casting and Glass Classes

Casting is an amazing and ancient way to create jewellery!

An excellent technique for absolute beginners to achieve fun results; more advanced students can develop and refine their skills to reach amazing levels of detail and complex designs.

Low tech casting is taught as a one day workshop where students can learn casting techniques that happen right in the studio. Lost Wax happens over 6 weeks so students can send waxes away to be professionally cast and learn a variety of sculpting techniques.

Our lampwork glass classes are exciting, satistfying and super colourful! 

Our amazing glass tutor Emily Napolitano is also available for one on one tuition and private group classes. She has a passion for helping people make Memory Beads, incorporating ahses into the glass to create a truly special piece of jewellery to remember a loved one. To learn more about what our glass classes cover and what you might make in one of those classes, scroll further down this page.

Glass Bead Making Classes: 

Join us for these fabulous intros to glass bead making!

The short taster classes are a great way for absolute beginners to get into working with glass to produce beautiful beads to incorporate into jewellery or gorgeous art projects. 

Those with some experience can use the taster classes as a quick session to make more beads and develop their skills. 

We recommend these classes as an additional techniqe to bring colour to your silver jewellery making! Add beads into your chains or earrings to create pieces that are unique to you!

Day - long classes are a fantastic opportunity to craft beads and combine them with either pre-fabricated fittings or craft simple elements of silver jewellery yourself. Ideal projects include earrings, pendants, necklaces (multiple beads)

or spinner bracelets. 

Beginners are welcome on these classes and will be guided to use pre-fabricated silver elements. Those with more experience will be guided through crafting their own silver components. 

Projects for these classes are curated and designed to enable students to acheive quality results in the group setting. 

For more complex projects outside the scope of these classes, it is essential to book a one-on-one session with a tutor, or book a special private class with a small group that focuses on the technique or project of choice. 

Email us  to enquire about this option.

This class involves gas torches and molten glass, people under 16 must be accompanied by an enrolled parent or caregiver.

We are only taking 8 students per class so book now!
