I have moved to a new studio in Orpington so will not be taking any bookings for December, however, I will be able to accept bookings for January 2020 onwards.

Collette Dawn is a London based jewellery designer and maker. Since graduating from Glasgow School of Art 16 years ago, with a BA Hons in Silversmithing and Jewellery, Collette Dawn has continued to create private commissions as well as teaching Jewellery making and 3D Design.

In the summer of 2016, Collette Dawn spent two months in a jewellery studio in New York honing her skills under the guidance of a master jeweller. This experience further fuelled Collette Dawn's lifelong ambition to open her own jewellery teaching studio. Finally, in January 2018, Collette Dawn opened the doors to her own studio located in an old victorian forge on the Isle of Dogs.

From her London studio, Collette Dawn offers tailor-made jewellery making classes and workshops, where students choose from a selection of projects and learn how to personalise them to suit their own tastes.

I’ve had the best time with Collette! She’s super friendly and easy going and besides explaining everything practice-related, she’s also great company. I’ve made an amazing silver ring (if I may say so) and I’ll definitely be coming (brining some friends) back here!

My husband and I had the best time making rings with Collette, she was a really good teacher with a good balance between showing us and making sure we did it right but also letting us do it ourselves. We love the rings we made!

We had a wonderful experience with Collette. As a group of 9 we arranged a silver charm making session and we all had a great time. We couldn’t believe that from going in with no experience we came out with 9 lovely silver charms in just 2 hours! Collette was informative and knowledgeable, guiding us patiently and somehow ensuring all 9 of us were on the right track! We sawed, hammered, drilled, filed and soldered our way through the 2 hours and really enjoyed ourselves. We have already been recommending the experience to our other friends!

My daughter and I had a superb afternoon with Collette. We both came away pleased to bits with the silver rings we’d made, but even more so with what we’d learnt. I enjoyed it so much I’m now looking for a silversmith course I can do at home in Newcastle - can’t recommend the taster sessions with Collette Dawn Jewellery enough!

Collette is a wonderful, friendly, patient lady. Her venue is fantastic. It is comfortable and modern with a sense of history linked back to the industrial days of the Docklands! I had a great couple of hours with Collette learning the techniques used to make a silver ring! I am very proud of my first attempt and I look forward to doing more classes in the new year! Anyone looking to try something new, or doing something a little bit different spend some time with the lovely Collette! :)

Such an enjoyable experience! I went along to make my boyfriend a ring as a gift and i was delighted with the outcome. Collette was lovely, chatty and let me really be hands on. She explained everything clearly and was a great teacher! Im going to be doing more classes through obby and definitely with Collette. Other then creating things for yourself its a great idea to make gifts for other people! And im certain my boyfriend is going to love the ring!

Collette was absolutely brilliant . I wasn’t sure what to expect when I ‘ve booked this class however I’m so happy I decided to go as it exceeded my expectations. I’ve learned so much and made a beautiful ring. Colette is extremely friendly and has guided me through with great patience and knowledge. Thank you Collette, the whole experience was just lovely and I’m looking forward to the next class with you !

Me and my partner attended the silver ring making workshop last weekend and we had the best time! Collette was lovely and taught us basic ring making skills and showed us different techniques we could use for the finishing of the rings. The workshop was both relaxing and super engaging. Now that I know some basic skills, I will certainly come back with a more intricate jewellery design. Many thanks again!

Colette is an amazing teacher. During the whole workshop, she was very patient and took some time to introduce all the tools that I would need to make the rings. This workshop is ideal for anyone who loves jewellery and wants to do something creative and relaxing at the same time. I love the three rings that I was able to make from scratch and I am planning to book other workshops similar to this one. I really enjoyed the workshop and would definitely recommend it!

An absolutely fantastic workshop. The venue is beautiful and central. Colette is lovely, skilled and patient. She arranged a great workshop for 9 of us to design and make our own silver charm. The making did need concentration but was really enjoyable and you really do make the charm all yourself. I would highly recommend Colette’s work shops for a hen party or girls celebration for all ages.
