Gobbins Craft Jewellery Workshops

All of the Gobbins Craft Jewellery Workshops are tutored by Heather, an experienced goldsmith who has taught students of all abilities for more than 25 years. No prior experience is required as Heather will be on hand to closely guide and supervise you through the jewellery making process enabling you to make your own piece of silver jewellery to take home.
You will have a choice of one of four projects to make in Heathers studio, which is a quaint converted pig barn dating from the 1830’s.
