Kia ora everyone! Thanks to all who showed up for last week’s madness. We had a lot of fun seeing the fantastic forts and battle armour everyone made. Stay tuned till the end of this update to see some of our photos from the evening.

Friday: Make silver rings!

We have managed to score a booking at the Jewelers Collective! They have given us a small discount so the class is only $50. The class runs from 10am - 1pm. The class is super fun and you end up with an awesome sterling silver ring to take home. The course is aimed at people who have no experience in jewellery making before so no worries if you haven't done any before. The instructors will take you through the whole process. If you want to sign up, here’s the link! https://makeuoa-jewellery-workshop.lilregie.com/
