Jewellery Making Classes with Tracy KellyAre you looking for a jewellery making class close to Sydney?

I love my craft, and I love to share it. Starting out with a chunk of metal, forming it, shaping it, transforming it into something totally unique – it’s such a thrill. I’d love for you to feel that.
If making jewellery is something you’ve always wanted to try, or if you have had a go and are wanting more, one of my jewellery making workshops may be just the thing for you.

Perhaps you just want to try something different or enjoy a fun and creative day out with some friends. Get out of the house, get creative, have a laugh and go home with a new skill-set and a brand new piece of sterling silver jewellery that you made yourself.

The Jewellery Making Studio.

The Tracy Kelly Jewellery Design studio is located in a quiet rural setting, just an hour out of Sydney.

The studio is a fully-equipped professional working jeweller’s workshop, with a custom-built student bench comfortably seating up to six people. The space is air-conditioned, has kitchen and bathroom facilities, and a lovely bush outlook.

All materials and use of workshop tools are included in the class fee. No hidden costs, no need to buy or bring anything. Everything will be supplied for you.

Jewellery Making Techniques.

Depending on the class you choose, you will learn a variety of techniques used by professional jewellers and hobbyists alike.
Techniques include:
  • Texturing metal
  • Using the jeweller’s saw
  • Jewellery Design
  • Filing and shaping metal
  • Finishing – polishing, patinas and surface treatments on metal
  • Soldering sterling silver

“But I’m not creative…”

I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve heard that. The honest answer is, you don’t need to be creative.

There are multiple templates and designs available in all of my classes for you to use, so you can focus on the techniques and making, if that’s what you prefer. Of course, if you want to add your own spin on your projects, you are more than welcome to do so.

Most of my workshops are beginner-friendly and include all materials needed to make fully-finished jewellery that you can wear home.

Frequently Asked Questions About Jewellery Making Classes

My jewellery making workshops are fully-inclusive. That means that all materials (metal, gemstones, beads etc) are provided and included in the course fee. The studio is fully-equipped with all the tools you will need to complete your jewellery project.

Tea, coffee, and filtered water are all provided in the studio for you. You will need to bring your own lunch to workshops that are not catered. There is a fridge, microwave, cutlery and crockery available for your use (and a dishwasher, so you don’t even have to wash up!)

I host exclusive jewellery making classes which means you can book a class for you and your group of friends, on a date of your choice, and have the entire workshop to yourselves. Each class listing will show a minimum and maximum number of participants which is specifically set to ensure students will receive sufficient one-on-one instruction, and comfortably complete a fully-finished piece of jewellery that you can wear home.

From time to time, I will host scheduled classes where single tickets can be purchased via Eventbrite. I recommend joining my mailing list to be notified of any new or upcoming classes.

There are no public transport options for getting to the studio as I am in a rural area (In fact, it’s one of the things I love about being here).

 

 

Unfortunately, it is not. We will be looking into accessibility options in the future. 

I understand that sometimes, things come up and plans need to be changed.

You are welcome to add friends to your booking providing the maximum class number has not been exceeded. If some of your party wish to cancel their bookings, cancellation fees may apply as per my T&Cs (see below), but the workshop will still proceed providing the minimum attendance number is met.

Workshops can be rescheduled at no additional charge if a minimum 21 days notice is given.

Cancellation fees apply and vary depending on advance notice given:

30 days or more – $50 flat fee

14-30 days – 20% of total workshop fee

72 hours-14 days – 50% of total workshop fee 

Less than 72 hours – no refunds

My classes are for adults (over 18yrs) only.

Sorry, no. In my workshops, everyone works on a similar project that focuses on a particular technique, so having someone working on something different is distracting.

In the future, I am planning on hosting “open studio” days, where you will be able to come in and use the tools and equipment to work on your own projects, for a daily or hourly fee. Sign up for my Studio News or keep an eye on my Socials for updates.

For security and privacy reasons, I do not publicise my precise address, just the general location and suburb of East Kurrajong NSW.

Once you have booked in for a workshop or personal consultation, the full address will be provided.
