Private jewellery making workshop

About the event
This workshop is perfect for a couple or a small group wanting to spend a fun, creative day together. You will have your very own fully equipped workbench, with everything you need to create your pieces within arms reach. We'll work out what you'd like to make and then I'll tailor a workshop agenda just for you. We can make rings, bangles, pendants, earrings, bookmarks or cuff links - whatever your heart desires!

About your facilitator: Zvoni Hodak
Hello! My passion for making jewellery began in my early 20’s in Melbourne while working as a studio assistant for a renowned jewellery designer. Then, following a career in business consulting in Canberra, I returned to jewellery making in 2011 when I moved to the beautiful Southern Highlands with my husband and creative collaborator, Phil. I use both traditional silversmithing techinqiues and newer digital technologies to produce clean, modernist pieces. I love working with natural gemstones and silver palladium, a precious metal that doesn't tarnish over time and provides a beautiful bright white canvas for my designs. I look forward to sharing my passion for jewellery making with you!
