Indulge in a few hours of creativity, as we embark on a journey of crafting your charm or pendant. This workshop is geared to fuel your inspiration to freestyle in a new medium with some light guidance - embrace the present moment and the joy of creating something special.
Who is this for?
We are inviting individuals who love a hands-on experience and possess a genuine curiosity for the art of craftsmanship to join us. You love to create with loose guidelines and really make something your own. You find solace in giving in to the present moment and seeing where the journey takes you.
Our goldsmithing studio provides a relaxing and supportive environment where you will be guided by Caranina in her creative sanctuary. With over 7 years of goldsmithing experience, you can confidently let her guide you to explore your creativity and come out with something you are proud to tell everyone that you made it!
Our studio is nestled east of downtown Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. Filled with natural light and exposed brick, we have curated a comfortable and inspiring atmosphere for art workshops, goldsmithing, and handmade jewelry crafting to allow your creativity to shine through. Our artist-led space embodies the vibrant maker culture of Hamilton.
The land of which Hamilton resides are the traditional territories of Anishinabewaki ᐊᓂᔑᓈᐯᐗᑭ, Attiwonderonk (Neutral), Haudenosaunee, Mississauga, and Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation.
Charms you’ve made!
STEP BY STEP
We'll start with morsels of wax and slowly form them into your own personally designed charm or pendant using heat to create shapes of interest and intention.
This is a one session workshop. You will spend your time carving out and perfecting your pendant’s shape. It will then be sent for casting in the metal of your choice - and will be returned to you all shiny and ready to wear!
Often asked about
How many people are in each class?
Generally classes are either one or two people per session. We like to keep the class sizes small so everyone gets the attention they need.
More often than not, if someone isn’t coming solo, they have booked the workshop with a close friend, family member, or partner for an anniversary.
Do I need to know exactly what I want to make before our first session?
No! We always encourage doing some inspiration searching before the session but it’s totally not necessary. We have plenty of samples for you to check out during your workshop.
How does payment work?
Payment is split in two chunks. The first is when you book your workshop. This covers all materials and the studio time. The second payment will be at your second session when we know the exact cost of your metal for your pieces. We will give you an estimate of this at the end of your first workshop so there are no surprises.
