Description

Join us for our much-loved silversmithing class to craft your own pair of handmade sterling silver earrings or pendant.

You'll begin by looking at our examples before choosing the shape you like. Your teacher will then set you up with a bench peg and saw, you'll be guided through the process of cutting your silver into the desired shape.

Once your shapes are cut, you'll begin perfecting them with specialist files and emery paper. Once you're happy with the shape, it's time to choose your texture, choose from a hammer finish, matte, shiny or oxidised. We'll have a selection of beads and pearls for you to add to your design if you wish.

Finish by assembling your earrings with sterling silver ear hooks.

Our story began in 2018 in a small Redfern studio. With only one desk and one sewing machine, our first class was published and we haven't looked back. Our passion for the arts coupled with bringing people together, brought our vision of launching a creative hub to life. 


In our modern world, everything moves quickly, we have adapted to a fast-paced environment and sometimes it can be hard to slow ourselves down. Sydney Creative is a place for people to relax, regroup and find a creative outlet that will hopefully aid in bringing people a sense of achievement, fulfilment and joy. 


Today, our classes run from our shop at 126 Regent St, Redfern. Our Classes bring people together, often in a circle around a table, whether it's for a sewing class, jewellery making or crafting, there's something special about being creative in a group together.
