Class taught by Renata Graham - author of “How to Design Bead & Wire Jewellery”, professional jewellery maker and qualified teacher.

Do you own an old piece of jewellery that has the potential to be something special, but currently isn't working? Or have you been scouring charity shops and car boot sales for old jewellery and now want to turn them into something special? Or do you need to fix your old jewellery? If so, this class is for you...

Attend this one day class and learn how to take existing pieces of jewellery and upcycle them into something new.

You will learn, step-by-step, how to design and make beautiful new vintage style jewellery pieces out of old jewellery and a handful of new components.

Suitable for all skill levels.


  • Old jewellery pieces (if you don't have your own to bring - please bring your own if you can) plus all new materials, beads and tools needed on the day
  • All refreshments - including a home cooked lunch, coffee, tea, biscuits, water and soft drinks

No more than five attendees are on each course to ensure I can answer all of your questions and give you hands-on-help when making your beautiful new pieces of jewellery.

Price: just £79 per person - includes all materials, lunch, refreshments and collection from the train station if required.
