Interested in designing and producing your own custom made jewellery, or just simply beading? Private individual as well as group classes are conducted in a peaceful and conducive environment in Sydney’s Hills District. Alternatively, special arrangement can also be made for the classes to be conducted in the comfort of your own homes or at pre-arranged venues.
Workshops are now open for beginners, whereby the basic techniques in beading, selection and combination of beads of different shapes and colours are shared. In the intermediate to advanced classes, different and more advanced techniques of putting beads together will be taught.
Workshop sessions are based on a project basis which run for a maximum of two hours per session and a maximum class capacity of 4 people. Please note some projects will require more than one workshop to complete and as such, several classes will be required. All workshops will be provided with tools, and materials of your choice to be used can be supplied at discounted prices.
For groups of more than 4 people or jewellery-making parties, please contact us for specially tailored workshops.
To avoid disappointment, we suggest you contact us early for class timetable and availability.

"My Mum and I have attended 2 workshops with Ivy and will be back for more!
Ivy is generous with her time and expertise, and as a very talented jeweller has so many skills she is willing to share with her students. She is patient and encouraging, and wants to see her students succeed. Ivy's instructions and guidance are clear and she can adapt her method to suit each person's learning style.
After each lesson my Mum and I have left with new skills, confidence and enthusiasm, and we have been able to complete our projects at home.
Ivy has so much to offer and share, and her relaxed, friendly and professional approach to teaching means you will leave each workshop with new skills, and more ideas about other projects you would like to master!
We would both highly recommend Ivy's workshops for beginners through to advanced students.

"I recently attended one of Ivy's workshops as a bit of a beginner.Ivy put me at ease immediately and I was amazed at what I learned in just 2 hours under Ivy's patient guidance.Ivy's work is absolutely magnificent yet she is able to relate to all skill levels.The workshop far exceeded my expectations and I will definitely be attending another! Thankyou Ivy!"
"Each week I eagerly look forward to attending Ivy’s jewellery workshops. I am continually learning new skills and putting them into practice while working on a variety of projects. Ivy’s friendly easy-going manner and obvious enthusiasm and flair for jewellery design means that you are soon creating your own unique pieces. There is nothing more satisfying that being able to wear a piece of jewellery you have made yourself. Attending these workshops has been the best decision I have ever made and I recommend them to everyone. Whatever your skill level you will soon be wearing your own creations."More items
