Create your own jewellery piece with contemporary jeweller, Mia Straka in this new after-work programme at the Maritime Museum. The classes will be held in the Museum’s brand new waterfront learning space, and there will also be a cash bar and complimentary snacks and tea and coffee for a social Thursday evening.

The workshops will involve hands on learning of simple metal working techniques, beginning with practice materials before starting a final piece. Students will be able to choose what they’d like to make each class when they arrive. Classes will be kept small to ensure everyone is able to have a quality experience. The workshops are designed to be relaxed and social, and no prior experience will be required.

More about Mia:

Mia fuses her love of metalwork and thoughtful design to create beautifully constructed contemporary Jewellery. Her pieces explore the body as site, employing techniques, form and symbolism to express personal experiences and reactions. Mia is also interested in traditional processes and alternative materials, questioning values and anchoring her work in this specific time and place.
