Tucked away in The Old Dairy Barn off the Redbourn Road is the wonderful Hopton & Furlong workshop, a collaboration between Designer Goldsmiths Martin Hopton and Tracy Furlong.
Both graduates of Central St Martins college of Art & Design, where Martin still lectures the BA (hons) students. The designers have over 35 years experience in creating beautiful bespoke pieces of jewellery.
The Old Dairy Barn in St Albans, Hertfordshire is kitted out as an ideal studio for the art of jewellery making.
A range of courses are available to meet the diverse needs of all students. The courses provide in depth tuition in jewellery making, ranging from the complete beginner experimenting with a new hobby to the more technically able experienced student.
Why not try a Sunday class or sign up for a course? Once you have started designing and making your own jewellery who knows where it will lead?!
8 week courses at a cost of £280 for the term and a Sunday class for £70.
Morning classes on Wednesday and Friday 10am - 1pm
