In association with Colour Box Studio, the Aacute jewellery workshops use geometric shapes you are probably familiar with in modern day necklace bead designs. The 2 hour workshop, which covers all of your materials, guides you through a creative process to design, shape and assemble polymer clay into beads. You'll be guided how to bake your beads and how to take care of your designs once you leave.

Workshops take place in a relaxed cafe environment, and are designed to be casual, social, relaxed yet fully immersive in jewellery making. You will go home with a goodie bag at the end of your class.
