This weekend we had a lovely group of highly motivated individuals, mostly with no previous experience in making, who all went smiling home with rattling pockets and jingling fingers – proud makers of some really fine pieces of jewellery!
Southwark Adult Learning Services are assisting us to run these jewellery courses for local residents, and the aim is to reach as wide an audience as possible.
Family workshops aim to get adults and children working creatively together, and are free to Southwark residents. They are great fun!
We also run weekend (2 day) workshops and weekday courses (3 days) for adults, focusing on a range of jewellery making techniques, and again thanks to the SALS support our courses for residents cost as little as £40 for 2 days, including lunch and materials – (pewter, copper and silver)
We have worked through our waiting lists, and there are 1 or 2 remaining places on some of the jewellery courses here at Flux.
If you fancy a stretch of your creative faculties in January please visit here to sign up.
They make for a FABULOUS gift too!!!!
I’m endlessly surprised by how much is achieved by the participants – complete beginners, young and old – in such a short time, and by the range and quality of creativity that unfolds in those 3 hours…..Elsewhere, hammers and punches were used to make interesting textures, and beautiful patterns were pressed using the rolling mill. A particular favourite for me was Laura’s landscape.. she worked out a superb solution for a plinth.
Oh woe and sadness! 🙁
A favourite prop, the hand of Macha, which has lived among the plants at Flux Studios, has gone…
It’s absence is causing problems for photography continuity for my book on jewellery…
If you have seen it wandering around, please send it home to Flux
Must be time for Vanguard Court Winter Open Studios! Jewellery / Ceramics / Wood / Painting / Textiles / Furniture /Silver / Jewellery

Here at Flux Studios we are very proud of Imogen, who has just been announced as the winner of this year’s Bright Young Gem award at the IJL (international jewellery London)
Here’s a beautiful piece by Nic Webb, who quickly grasped the parameters of the material in hand to produce this highly original ring.
In response to popular demand we decided to run a similar course for intermediate jewellery students this term; there are still 1 or 2 places left so if you fancy joining get signed up here
This 12 week course starts 22 September. All other courses at Flux start 13/14 September. Check the prospectus for full details.

We have teamed up with Southwark Adult Learning Services again this year and if you live in or around the borough you can take advantage of some fantastic discounts on these special courses.
We are also pleased to present our free family workshops, running on selected Saturday afternoons
I’m delighted with my result. I’m not sure yet whether it will be an object to wear – I like the idea of it being a conundrum, a curiosity, a museum piece – a future relic. I’m still thinking about it’s deeper symbolic associations with water/life/preciousness…..the way we live now…
We are thrilled to announce Flux Studio’s association with London Jewellery Week and JewelEast.
Located in the heart of Camberwell, in a cobbled court yard which is also home to many other artists, Flux studios is an innovative member’s workshop. Its location and size means it is able to provide a supportive and creative hub in which the members can practice and excel in their craft. As such the members create exciting, original, individual and modern work which is highly collectable.
Do you deserve a real treat? Do you work with clay?

I’ve just returned from a trip to China and loved meeting silversmiths in Dali Old City, high up on a plateau in Yunnan, SW China.
Oh joy, I just got the new CS5 suite, and have spent a happy weekend playing!
Working through my sizable collection of seaside photos, this story emerged……

I find a quiet satisfaction in the transformation from flat to round.. there is a completeness in these forms that can curl up into a perfect sphere.
