The Jewellers Peg is part of Vanessa Miller Jewellery and a wonderful opportunity to offer you experiences. The tutors are Vanessa Miller and Tom Asquith. Experiences are an opportunity to learn how to create jewellery in a calm and intimate environment with one or both tutors.

Classes are for adults over the age of 17 only.

The classes will require some standing for certain activities and physical work.

Please be aware all classes we offer are a practical activity and although rare sometimes minor injuries such as cuts can occur.

COVID-19 SAFE- Please provide your own face mask. Face masks are no longer mandatory and you are welcome to wear one throughout your class. There is handwashing and alcohol hand gel available within the workshop.

The workshop is a small space and therefore restricted to a maximum of 4: 2 tutors and 2 students at any one time.

It is recommended you wear an apron as workshops can be a dirty environment, you may bring your own or wear the aprons we supply which are laundered after each workshop.

If you wear glasses please remember to bring them with you.

Long hair must be tied back securely.

Low heeled, firm shoes must be worn such as trainers - flip flops, sandals, open shoes and soft cloth shoes cannot be worn in the workshop and will mean your class cannot go ahead if you do not have alternative footwear.

Sanitised and reusable eye protection and disposable ear protection where necessary will be provided.

You will be in a workshop environment with lots of tools and equipment.
You will be provided with an apron and safety glasses (you are very welcome to bring your own), it is recommended you wear clothes you don't mind getting a little dirty.
You must wear flat closed toe sturdy footwear such as trainers, bring your spectacles if you require to wear them normally and tie long hair securely back. Your class will be cancelled without refund if you attend without these basic safety measures.
Please be aware you will be working with tools and although rare cuts can occur.

No sorry we do not have lift access. The workshop is located on the first floor accessible via a spiral staircase.

A frequently asked question and I understand the lovely idea of this, however this isnt something we can offer our participants. There is a lot of work and risk involved in the process of melting down and forming your metal and in the removal of your stones therefore we do not offer this the participants.

No we supply the metal for you to use to make your jewellery.
We are frequently asked if participants can bring their own old or sentimental jewellery to melt down to use during the class. Unfortunately this isn't something we can offer during the time allocated and there is a lot more involved than simply melting down the metal.

The time allocated for each experience is usually enough time to complete the project, however sometimes it may go over by a few minutes. Whatever happens please rest assured that you will always leave with a beautiful, finished piece of jewellery you have made from scratch.

Yes! After an initial introduction to the studio (The Jewellers Peg) You will be guided throughout the entire process from start to finish and will hand make your own item of jewellery. The tutor(s) will demonstrate each step before you do each task and will be on hand at all times to assist you.
