I am a qualified adult education teacher and have been enjoying teaching jewellery making to adults at various centres around London, as well as offering private individual or small group tuition in London since 2009.
Whether you are a professional looking to add to your skills, completely new to jewellery making and would like to try it out, you make jewellery as a hobby, or you are considering making jewellery to sell, I would love to help you.
I work primarily with silver, using traditional jewellery making and related skills, but I don't often use silver on its own - I also love working with bead weaving, silver clay, and Kumihimo (Japanese braiding), and I love creating different effects by combining these or other materials in different ways with metals.
Face to face tuition is currently suspended, but will be available again later in the year. See below for online learning options instead!

I (normally, but not at the moment) offer individual or small group tuition, from my studio in Camden, central London.
As well as my private teaching, I teach at the London Jewellery School in Hatton Garden - teaching a variety of beading, metal clay, resin, glass fusing, wax carving and silver jewellery making classes and I also teach regularly in Hammersmith at the Macbeth Centre, and occasionally at the London Jewellery Workshop in Shoreditch.
