Pocket Studio – Website Launch and Courses
by The Editor
Partial as we are to websites containing circles, we were thrilled to see Pocket Studio launch a new and expanded website a couple of weeks ago. It’s a place where you can make stuff – shiny stuff, or simply get it made for you by some of Canberra’s most dedicated designers.
We’ve featured Pocket Studio and Alison Jackson once or twice before – and it’s been really interesting to watch her vision develop from a simple start-up studio, to an interactive space where those keen to learn about the art of gold- and silversmithing can go to discover the craft.
If you’re interested in getting your hands dirty, Alison &Co. at Pocket Studio have a couple of courses on offer:
Evening Jewellery Courses
Runs for six weeks on either Monday or Wednesday evenings
Fee: $400 (includes all consumables and base metals)
Bookings for the current course close Friday 14th June
Silversmithing workshop: Raising a copper bowl
Saturday June 22nd & 29th
10.30am – 2.30pm
Fee: $265 (includes materials and refreshments)
Hurry! Only one place left
So, whether in the market for a bespoke piece, or looking to create your own metal version of a clay pinch-pot, head on over to the Pocket Studio and check out the designers, their creations and the opportunities to get involved yourself.
