We are excited to introduce resin workshops with Tanya, our sole maker here at Milk Diamonds. Tanya is an experienced keepsake jeweller and silversmith.
This beginners/intermediate course will give you an opportunity to make your own keepsake pendant using one of our cast sterling silver pendants and your own inclusions set in UV resin. These can include breastmilk, hair, ashes, fur, or fabric. We will try different finishes and decorations. Breastmilk will need to be sent prior to the course starting so it can be preserved. Any findings/precious metals used are not included in the workshop fee and will be charged the current price on the day.

This is a one day workshop which runs 10am - 4pm with an hour lunch break (not provided)
All workshops take place at our Studio in Frome and are limited to three students, so you can be sure you'll have a personal experience.
The studio is on the first floor and only has access via stairs. Unfortunately, it is not suitable for those unable to use stairs or vertigo sufferers. Tea & coffee making facilities are available, as well as restrooms. There is parking nearby and the local train station is a 20 minute walk.
To book, select your desired date from the dropdown box and add to basket. We'll contact you prior to your workshop with any additional information needed and to confirm attendance. If you have any questions in the meantime, you can always get in touch.
