The workshop takes place at my Twickenham (South West London) garden studio on Selkirk Road, TW2 6PU -with all tools and materials, tea and coffee provided. The teacher is (me) Kate Harvey - the founder of Grace & Flora Jewellery. I run various regular workshops including beginners jewellery making: and beginners silversmithing projects. Feel free to get in touch for private lessons in small groups or other questions.
"Kate was brilliant, she demonstrated and spent time ensuring we understood the techniques. I came away with some lovely necklaces, braclets and earrings that people have been asking me where I got them from. The workshop itself was great, it was in Kate’s cute workshop and she provided a delicious lunch.I enjoyed it so much I have started making some pieces as presents for my friend which I find really relaxing. Thanks again Kate, a great day and I have found myself a new hobby! "
