Choose from some basic drop and stud earring designs, and spend half a day learning to make them.
Sit at a traditional jeweller’s bench and learn to use precision tools including a jewellers saw, dividers, files, pliers, hammers, punches and more. At the end of this fun class, you’ll take home your pair of handmade sterling silver earrings.
If you would like to make a pair of earrings of your own design, consider enrolling in the full day Design Your Own Silver Earrings Workshop.
No previous experience necessary. All tools and materials (including sterling silver) are provided. Written instructions and afternoon tea are also included.
If you'd like to buy a workshop as a gift but you're not sure what date the recipient will be able to go, you can purchase a Pod Jewellery Gift Certificate. This gives the recipient the flexibility to book into a workshop at a time that suits them.
