Weekly silversmith/jewellery classes

$30 for 2 hours

Maximum 4 people per class

Classes are weekly Thursday afternoons from 1 to 3 pm.

(class days/times do sometimes change so please contact us for session times)

You might be a beginner who is hesitating to dive into jewellery making, or a seasoned jeweller in a bit of a creative slump. In either case, it’s always inspiring to remember that there are many reasons to make your own jewellery.

*Please note we also run cuttlebone casting for our regular weekly students. The cost for this is $60 per person (not the usual $30). Silver is an extra cost or you can supply your own.

Cuttlebone casting private workshop 

Enjoy a private workshop for one to four people while sipping complimentary champagne/wine/tea or coffee plus savoury or sweet nibbles.

Cost of studio hire is $240 for 1 to 4 people.

*** We do accept larger group bookings at an extra $60 per person, up to 10 people in total

(Posting finished pieces will incur an extra cost if required)

  • 2 to 3 hour workshop session with 2 University Qualified instructors

  • Instructor will show the process of preparing the cuttlebone

  • Cuttlebone for students will be made ready beforehand to begin carving straight away

  • Use special scrapers to carve out a design/shape of your own choice in the cuttlebone

  • Watch the instructor melt silver and pour it into the cuttlebone

  • Open up the cuttlebone to see your creation

  • Leave your piece with the instructors so they can solder on a bail for a chain to go through and polish it. Or if there is time left over we will get you to begin the filing and sanding up process on your own pieces.

  • Pick up the finished pendant/s later that day/or next day (or they can be sent by post to a designated address)

  • PLEASE NOTE  Silver is an extra cost of approximately $20 for each pendant made (cost depends on silver price at the time of workshop)

Although you will only be in the studio for 2 to 3 hours, the two tutors will need to cut off the sprues, file and sand areas, solder on a bail, and polish each one  so you can have your finished item later that day or the next day.


The secret to a happy, healthy life is being creative. That applies to jewellery making, too! Creating is meditative, automatically reducing stress.


Who doesn’t love receiving handmade gifts? Depending on what you make, you can whip up a gorgeous gift in no time.


If you make your own jewellery, you can recreate some of your favourite designer pieces to fit your budget. Even if you use the same metals and gems that the designer piece uses, you’ll still save a lot of money!


Create unique projects that stand apart from the crowd. You can imagine your perfect piece of jewellery and recreate that. No one else in the world will own the same piece of jewellery!

Don't know how to design? We can help you create individual designs just for you.

Do you have a design but don't know how to make it?  We can help you make it.

​At Woolaway Studios, anything is possible!

Here, at Woolaway Studios, on the Fleurieu Peninsula, we believe that everyone can learn how to create their own jewellery.  People come to us for weekly classes from Victor Harbor, Cape Jervis, Port Elliot, Middleton and Goolwa, so it is a wonderfull way to meet like-minded people. 

Our workshops will help you to realise your creative side in an enjoyable, relaxing and rewarding manner.  Plus after our workshops you will take home beautiful pieces  that you have made yourself. Our affordable and fun classes are conducted in small groups so you get plenty of individual attention.

Make something unique for yourself, your partner (valentines day, birthday), parents (mothers/fathers day), children, grandchildren, wedding accessories etc.
