What you'll do

Jump right into a 1 and a half hour session to design your own jewellery. First get an introduction to the methods and tools available, see examples of work by beginners and by advanced students. You may sketch out your initial idea or just speak about what you wish to express with your design. Then carve into the wax provided, stamp, form to fit your finger, or melt into a shape for a pendant. If you wish to go further with the experience we can take your wax object, cast it in silver and mail it to you in your home town for a small fee determined by the size of your artwork. Our visitors have found this to be a rather satisfying experience replete with a momento of their stay in Potts Point, Sydney and Australia. What's your next creative experience going to be?
Other things to note
Beginners welcome! You don't need any prior design skills as it's a fun and friendly experience in a safe creative hub. Great for date night or first date ! After making your wax master you will want to have me cast it in silver or gold for you, that additional to this workshop.

I'm the creative director and industrial designer with a master of design from the New York's Pratt Institute and the Royal Institute of Copenhagen. I make treasures you can wear and I teach design skills out of my workshop, " industrial bling ", in charming Potts Point. Having taught at university level, I believe there is a creative core inside all of us and I am great at helping you find your mojo. My award winning wearable artworks and unique methods of making jewellery are available to you when you become a student at industrial bling.

Where you'll be

The workshops are held in a lovely old shopfront known locally as industrial bling , which is also my work studio and gallery. Here you'll get a peak into a world of makers in the historic district of Kings Cross, the colourful underbelly of Sydney.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 from 10 reviews.

Personalized artistic experience. Susan was welcoming and knowledgeable about her craft. I enjoyed the time creating. Still waiting for my final creation to arrive. I would recommend the experience.

Really enjoyed the workshop with Susan. She was very nice and patient with my never ending questions. I was able to just sit and play with my design and she helped whenever I got stuck and showed me different techniques. I would certainly do it again, if I lived here.

I had a great time with Suzy designing personalised pieces of jewellery. I have been back several times to learn new skills. Suzy has a quirky industrial design aesthetic and is a real part of the Kings Cross community with locals dropping by. Very pleased to have met Suzy and learned new jewellery skills, taught in a patient and friendly manner. Thank you!

I bought it as a birthday gift to my friend. I'm not a particularly creative person and definitely don't have experience making jewellery but we had a lot of fun creating our rings! Suzie was very helpful. She shared her work and work from previous students for inspiration and gave us all the tools and techniques we needed to get to the result we wanted. The atmosphere was great. We chatted and listened to music so very relaxing. Great experience! I would recommend it to anyone wanting to have a fun and creative moment.

Susan is an exceptional teacher. She's delivering a fun unique experience that is great for all. I recommend coming with a concept or idea of something simple but meaningful that you'd like to create. I watched as Susan helped brainstorm a brilliant idea with another student while I was lasered into my concept. This was as easy as coming to a painting class but instead you'll be designing and creating wearable art. Thanks Susan!!
