Bethamy is an accomplished and qualified teacher with years of experience teaching jewellery and metal smithing design and technique to students of all ages. Offering jewellery classes on site in her studio in West Perth, and workshops throughout the year at various locations, Bethamy takes great pride in sharing the skills and techniques she has developed through her 25 years as a practicing silver and gold smith to students from beginners to those of advanced skill level.
With a maximum of four students per class, Bethamy is free to spend a significant amount of one on one time with each student as they require it. If you are new to jewellery making. Bethamy has devised a series of fun exercises for you to complete, these are designed for you to work through at your own pace (with help of course) in order to progressively build your jewellery making skills (eg sawing, filing, soldering). Each will result in a finished piece of jewellery for you to wear or to give away! And you can choose which metal you make it in too; copper, brass, silver and titanium is available in class for you to purchase or you can bring your own. Once you have built confidence, or if you are an experienced student, you may design your own projects, or focus on specialist skills which are of interest to you.
Each class is three hours, and runs for 4 weeks every month. Come for one month to make a specific piece, such as a special gift or wedding ring or choose to continue for multiple blocks and build a formidable skills set and a beautiful collection of your handmade jewels. Each block is $400 for four weeks.
