Welcome! We are Zvoni Hodak and Phil Young, multidisciplinary designers living and working in the beautiful Southern Highlands of NSW. Our studios are productive work spaces where we create our jewellery, lighting and object designs.
Imagine being able to handcraft your own precious metal jewellery, and learning the skills to do so with other creative people who share their knowledge and encourage you along the way. Our studio is perfectly set up to help you learn, experiment and apply traditional silversmithing methods in a collaborative group setting.
Very few people get the opportunity to experience making things for themselves. One of the driving concepts of our studio is to give workshop participants an insight into what is involved in making a piece of jewellery; to get hands on and use the tools to turn a blank piece of silver into something they are proud to wear.
We have several full day workshops available in our Bowral studio where you can learn to make different jewellery pieces. We also have longer term courses designed to provide a deeper understanding and skill set. You can choose to attend on your own or with family and friends.
And to help budding silversmiths, our benches and tools can be hired on a daily basis, this enables new starters to build their skills without the need to invest in tools and machinery, some of which are quite expensive.
When you participate in one of our workshops or courses, you will have your own fully equipped workbench and access to one of the best private studios in the Southern Highlands. Our workshop fees include all materials and catering, so all you have to bring is yourself, everything else will be provided!
