Welcome to Gilded Poppy Makery- it's good to see you again.
It's hard to believe that this is my third year in the shop... where did the time go?
I'm excited for this fresh new year and the wonderful surprises I have lined up for you!
There are even more new classes on the horizon, and I can't wait to bring them to you this year!
Along with the usual techniques/ projects, we'll be delving deeper into enamelling, casting, fold-forming, setting, bone carving and even freeform gemstone carving!
Keep your eyes on the Blog, as there are some one-of-a-kind classes coming your way this year, with the incomparable Kieu Pham Grey from the USA coming over in September to hold the FIRST EVER METAL IMMERSION CONFERENCE IN AUSTRALIA!
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.
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, wood and freeform gemstone 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.
