New jewellery making classes / workshops now in Newton Abbot, South Devon. See classes for details.


An exciting range of jewellery making classes is now running in Newton Abbot, South Devon. Come along and learn a new skill or brush up on your existing knowledge. Courses are fun, relaxed and informal and all are suitable for beginners. Each technique is explained and demonstrated before you have a go yourself.

Warning - this craft is addictive!

Cost: Each lesson is 2 hours long and costs just £8 plus materials (£3-£4 depending on the class).

Location: Classes are held at the Newton Abbot Hobbycraft Store (Greenhill Way Retail Park, Newton Abbot, TQ12 3SB). The store has lots of free parking just outside and is also on a bus route. See map for location.



Booking: Each workshop is separate and does not rely on techniques learnt in previous classes so you are able to mix and match as you like. Advance booking is required as numbers are limited to just 8 per class to allow for plenty of 1:1 instruction. Early booking recommended to avoid disappointment! Book online below, or call/email for more information: 07934 074374,
