Bookings can be done via email or using the contact form.

Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis where your payment in full secures your place.

Any class(es) may be cancelled if there are less than two students registered for the month.

The workshop can accommodate up to four students per class, providing a cosy and intimate learning environment.

2021 Fees:

Monthly rate: R 350 per class (ie. attending weekly on a month-to-month basis: R1400 or R1750 per month)

Single class: R 400 per class

There will be no classes on public holidays. All fees exclude materials & consumables.

For those attending on a month-to-month basis, full monthly fees are payable in advance and no refunds will be given for missed classes. Invoices will be emailed to you in advance on the 25th of each month and are payable on presentation. Please make sure you are able to attend all classes you book for as make-up classes are not guaranteed.

Intermediate/advanced students wanting to drop-in are required to book and pay for their class in advance.

Because of the limited space in the studio and the admin required to manage bookings, classes that have been booked and paid for are unfortunately not refundable or transferable. 

Studio Location:

Orient Road, Lakeside (Zandvlei)

General:

All classes take place in our fully equipped jeweller’s workshop, with everything you need for basic metal work. You are welcome to purchase your own tools as you go along to use in class or at home. Metals (silver, brass, copper), consumables and a small range of findings are available for sale in the studio.

Please note that this studio is not licensed to work with gold or platinum. We will gladly put you in touch with gemstone suppliers and other suppliers to the industry as and when you need them.
