“I find it very rewarding to enable students to realise their designs and ideas.”


Alison Flanders runs a series of dedicated jewellery workshops in traditional metalsmithing techniques. Aimed at both complete beginners and those with some experience of jewellery making, Alison’s classes take place in her studio at Cockpit Arts in central London. Classes are kept to a maximum of 3 students, enabling Alison to give each individual as much one to one tuition as possible. Each student has their own workbench and soldering torch and all tools are provided.

All you  need bring is an apron, closed topped shoes and something to hold your hair back if necessary.
