There will be no classes on public holidays. Fees for months with five weeks will be calculated pro-rata. All fees exclude materials and consumables unless otherwise stated.

Full monthly fees are payable in advance and no refunds will be given for missed classes. Make-up classes are not guaranteed but there is the opportunity to swap classes with other students via the Whatsapp group. You are most welcome to team up and share a month or a semester of classes, provided that these classes are booked and paid for in one transaction and co-ordinated amongst yourselves. For those attending on a month-to-month basis, invoices will be emailed to you in advance on the 25th of each month and are payable on presentation. Intermediate/advanced students wanting to drop-in are required to book and pay for their spot in advance.

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.

See you at the bench!
