Make Your Own Jewellery At Karen’s Workshops

community workshops

Enjoy a day with your friends learning a new skill whilst making yourself a beautiful new piece of jewellery.

I absolutely love my community workshops – these are workshops that I bring to you and your community.  They can be held in community houses, art spaces, halls etc – minimum workshop size is 6 people , maximum number is 8.  I bring along all the equipment and materials you will need to make your own piece of jewellery in a one day workshop.  Working in sterling silver, copper and or brass, the following workshops are available:

Beginners Workshop:

– you will make a pair of earrings or a pendant in this workshop while learning the basic skills of silversmithing – saw piercing, annealing, texturing, shaping etc.

COST: $150 per person (there may be a small increase dependent on venue cost.)



Found Objects Workshop:

– This is a one day workshop using found objects such as stones, feathers, seeds etc that you might come across which can be used along with precious or semi-precious metals to make into a beautiful piece of jewellery.

COST: $150 per person (there may be a small increase dependent on venue cost.)


Ring Making Workshop:

– you will make a ring while learning how to size the ring, shape, texture, solder through to the final polish.  At the end of the session you will have a beautiful new ring of sterling silver that you can wear with pride knowing that you made it yourself.

COST: $180 per person (there may be a small increase dependent on venue cost.)

“Karen was a fantastic teacher in our silver jewellery workshop. She had clear instructions and was patient and encouraging in helping us create our designs. I’m very much looking forward to another class with Karen..”


Thank YOU for holding the workshop. It was a fun day, the day went so quickly while we were all busy creating and chatting. I loved that we all created something different, you did well keeping up with all our requests for help! 
Looking forward to a follow up class……
