SUSTAINABLE JEWELLERY WORKSHOP
Join jeweller Alice Whish at Gaffa for a jewellery studio workshop. Through the act of play we will renovate your jewellery box, discovering what you love to wear, repair, treasure, gift and recycle. We will use the items to inspire a new jewellery piece to make and/or design on the day.
*Select 6 to 10 pieces of your jewellery to bring to class (maximum)
*bring a photograph of valuable items
* or bring the cheapies and come and play.
