It’s been over a year since I last wrote about places to study jewellery in Melbourne. Time for an update.

With respect to formal degree study, the schools in Melbourne are:


Now, short courses for jewellery and silversmithing:


There are also many jewellers who regularly open their studio doors and generously share their knowledge and passion.

… I’m sure there are many more, so I’ll add to this listing as I uncover them.


I’d really like to create a listing of the best short courses in Melbourne for jewellery making – can you recommend where you’ve been or heard is good?

Thanks as I’m about to start advertising the 2015 Melbourne Cufflink exhibition and $500 acquisitive prize to the students you have just mentioned! This year it’s part of Melbourne Spring Fashion Week.

What are your views on the course offered by Northcity4?
Im a malaysian,and is interested in enrolling for a jewelery course that covers the basics/wax carving.

As jewelerysmithing is something that is to be learn by passion and own initiative,would NC4 courses help me in pursuing this passion?

The end result is to produce my own jewelery.

Your feedback is highly appreciated

Hi Iki
I haven’t done the course at NC4 myself, but the courses are popular and the people at NC4 are truly lovely and skilled makers.
Perhaps contact NC4 directly and ask all the questions you have – they’re no doubt the best to discuss what they’re courses cover and which may suit you best.
I wish you the best … happy making!
