Contemporary jewellery and adornment exploring mental health




Lessons with Eleanor

As an experienced jeweller and private teacher Eleanor loves to share her passion for working with metal. She is available for private 1-2-1 sessions or group bookings, which are suitable for all skill levels.

Eleanor’s Make Your Own Wedding Ring Class includes an initial consultation free of charge. This covers the initial design and what extras can be added.

Your class will take place over the course of a day and you will master heating the metal to soften it, hammering and shaping, ending with soldering and polishing.

Included in the class: practice metal (copper) and all studio materials, Hallmarking, Eleanor Kerr-Patton ring boxes, photos of the day and a glass of bubbly to celebrate at the end.

When you book Eleanor will discuss your design so she can order the metals needed in time for your class. All metals are priced in additional to the class. Please get in touch for more information, prices and availability.

Metal work and jewellery making are hugely satisfying skills to learn and provide a great creative outlet. While Eleanor is not a trained Art Therapist many students find that metal work and jewellery making are beneficial to their mental health.
