Join our jewellery making classes in the beautiful surrounds of the artist’s colony of Montsalvat in Melbourne, with Master Craftswoman Jeanette Dyke.  And learn how to make your own silver jewellery in her professionally equipped studio.
"You will have the benefit of over 30 years of knowledge and experience that I have to share with you. I trained in England at the Royal College of Art to Masters degree level, in Germany and with renowned Silversmith Richard Fox making his designs for BVLGARI. My many teachers have included: Michael Rowe, Richard Fox, David Watkins, Onno Boekhoudt, Marianne Forrest, Wendy Ramshaw, Hans Stofer, Cynthia Cousins and Allan Scharff. My classes aim to provide you with great ambiance in a relaxed and beautiful environment.  I only teach 5 students at a time so you will have lots of quality attention in order to learn your new skill.  And don’t worry, I have the patience of a saint and lots of cups of tea to keep you going. I will personally guide you through every step of your learning experience.”
