Your workshop will be run by our Silversmith Vicky
Your tutor, Vicky, has been designing and making jewellery since 2012 when she studied at Penwith School of Art in Cornwall. The first tap of a hammer ignited a passion for jewellery making which has seen her complete a degree and set up her own small business. Over the past few years, she has enjoyed teaching the art of jewellery making at Bigbury Mint.
