Classes with Hampshire School of Jewellery in Basingstoke.

We offer a range of one off classes which are perfect for beginners and a great introduction to jewellery making.   They also act as a refresher to revisit a particular technique or process if you do have some experience.

All classes are held at our Basingstoke Studio unless specified.

All materials are included in these classes unless stated.

Payment in full is required to confirm any bookings.

These classes can also be run as hen do’s, baby showers, birthday celebrations or just as an excuse to get some friends together.

Think we are missing something? We would love to hear from you and will consider any ideas for classes.

Please get in touch to book or ask any questions by using the contact form at the bottom of the page.

I am thrilled that are are now able to reopen; obviously to do this we have had to make changes to the way we work and run the studio.

Classes are now limited to a maximum of 6 people in each session; to allow for social distancing and individual tool kits have been provided for each work bench.

Please see our full update on the FAQ’s page here

If you are booked onto a class but start to develop signs of the virus please DO NOT attend your session; let us know as soon as you are able to and we will work with you to reschedule to another time.

Should you develop symptoms after your class please advise me so I can take the necessary steps with advising any one else you may have been in contact with at the school. 

If there are further restrictions from the government I will of course re assess the situation and if we go into another lockdown we will close immediately.

Thank you for your support over the past few months; we wouldn’t be here without you!
