Learn to make Jewellery with Cathy

Online Classes

One-to-one and group classes

I have embraced the available technology and am teaching classes online. These are live interactive sessions.

Group sessions are a mix of discussion, demonstrations and videos.  Participants work on projects during the sessions which are structured so that there is plenty of small group and individual attention.

One-to-ones are tailored to suit individual needs, from a 40 minute troubleshoot session to half day sessions. Please get in touch to find out more.

Workshops in the studio

At the moment there I am not running any in person workshops, please get in touch to find ut when they will resume.

Cathy runs jewellery classes at her studio in Mortimer, near Reading in Berkshire and at other locations, including schools, craft events and private parties.

Silver jewellery classes in the studio can be tailored to suit your interest and experience; these have included beginners workshops, workshops on an introduction to enamelling on silver, introduction to casting in silver, making each other's wedding rings, master classes on specific techniques such as soldering. Workshops can be on an individual basis or for up to four people at a time depending on the subject. As a qualified and experienced teacher Cathy is skilled at teaching all ages and abilities.

Cathy is currently the jewellery tutor at Maiden Erlegh Community Arts in Reading where she teaches evening classes on Monday and Tuesday evenings. There is a often a waiting list for the classes.  Contact Community Arts at the school directly if you wish to be added to the list.
