On the day

Under the guide of Silversmith Jemica Ostrofski, learn how to design and fabricate textured jewellery using recycled metals. The basic metalsmithing techniques of mark making will be explored using various hammers, letter stamps, number stamps and other tools. 

Designed for teens aged 13-17 years old, in this three hour workshop students can choose to make either a pair of earrings, a ring, necklace or key chain.

Meet your tutor

Local artisan Jemica Ostrofski draws inspiration from fashion design, costume jewellery and urban geometric form. Her goal is to create individually hand-crafted pieces that tell a story, using traditional silversmithing techniques such as hand sawing, soldering and metal texturing.
Adopting an ethically responsible and environmentally friendly practice, she uses recycled, found and repurposed metals in her workshops.
