Masterful Makers - Luxury DIY Workshops. 


The Art of being a maker!

Makers take raw materials and transform them into objects of desire. 

It is an art form, it is a craft, and it can be learned!

Come and experience a workshop with Masterful Makers. In as little as 2 hours you can walk out with a piece of handmade jewellery, luxurious leather bag, stunning knotted mala or your own personalized luxury skincare products. All designed and crafted by you!

Let me introduce myself, I am Victoria White, a one-woman dynamo/mad scientist/designer & maker of crafts. I am the owner of Masterful Makers and offer boutique workshops from my studio.  

My love for art, the history of man and pretty shiny things came together while being pregnant with my daughter and working for the Museum of African American Art in Florida. I fell in love with African trade beads. They were historical in context and heavy with human drama. They were an artefact, an antique and pretty. Pairing the few trade beads I had with semi-precious stones and sterling silver wire I began to make my first wrapped earrings. It was very therapeutic and relaxing, until my husband (at the time) saw the box of earrings I had made and took them to work. He returned that afternoon and presented me with a box of money, after having sold them all to his work colleagues! And that is how all this madness began. 

That was a bit over 25 years ago. And here we are now!

I have my BA in art history and a Diploma in Visual Arts and Silversmithing. 

I use my workshops to pass on my skills and knowledge so that you too will see just how enjoyable being a Maker can be. Coming away with personally designed and created pieces!


I am Victoria White and Making is my passion, let me make it yours as well!
