I'm the Jeweller at the amazingly creative community: 'The Sloops Studios' . This is where your jewellery making experience will take place. It stands near the glorious harbour on the site of the old St Ives fish cellar (not far to go for a relaxing break). You will be designing and making in a fully equipped workshop that I use daily for my retail business. Here, i offer a variety of jewellery making workshops suitable for any level, using my 17 years of experience in the jewellery industry. I have studied jewellery at the Prestigious Birmingham School of Jewellery , returning to my home town of St Ives with a First Class Honors Degree, teaching qualifications and heaps of experience within the jewellery industry. Lesson's are relaxed, informative and fun, and situated in the most beautiful place in the UK (I think so anyway).
