Welcome to my shop- it's good to see you.
It's so good to be in the shop and for classes to be rolling along again. Having the shop filled with laughter and the sound of hammers is music to my ears!
There are so many new classes on the horizon my friends, and I'm excited to be bringing them to you this year!
Along with the usual classes, we'll be delving into enamelling, casting, fold-forming, setting, and even a bit of gold work!
Pop over to WeTeachMe.com.au for the current classes and keep your eyes peeled for new classes being added. (You'll find the link on the Classes Page)
I will still be only accepting students for classes who have their vaccination certificate showing their fully vaccinated status.
I don't make this decision lightly, and I acknowledge that this might not be everyones choice, but at the Makery, it's always been Safety First- whether we're talking about tool safety, playing with fire, or using masks to avoid dust and particulates when enamelling. That attitude towards safety has driven this decision too.
Join me here and you'll learn metalsmithing arts along with wire weaving, cord and fibre techniques, metal clay, etching, enamelling, as well as bone and wood carving.
This is the place where mistakes are celebrated for the learning opportunities they really are, and you can relax amongst your fellow creatives, allowing your imagination to be fired by the project you're working on.
Come and dive into our exciting new classes here with me at Gilded Poppy Makery- I can't wait to meet you.
Meet the Owner
Kiwi by birth, but I’ve passed through so many countries on my journey, I feel that a part of me belongs everywhere!
Australia has, however, become home, and I love my new city of Melbourne- the people here are wonderful.
I'm looking forward to a great life here with my family and new friends.
