Health & Safety in the studio

As jewellers we work with tools, heat and chemicals.  To ensure your safety, please take a look at our Studio health & safety guide.

Session 1 will include a complimentary 15 minute run through of health & safety in the workspace.  The key is to familiarise yourself with how to safely use the studio without any incidents. As jewellers we are human and can make mistakes.  But having the knowledge of the equipment and tools being used will help you to enjoy the process of jewellery making in a safe environment.

Some of the safety precautions to consider are:

Always wear closed-toed shoes

Please be sure to wear closed-toed shoes when making jewellery as we work around chemicals, heat and tools (no slippers, sandals or flip flops)

Equipment, tools, equipment & safety sheets

Familiarise yourself with equipment, tools and safety instructions for any chemicals or compounds used in jewellery making
