On Wednesday, the 11th of October, as part of Sydney Craft Week, Gaffa Creative Precinct will unlock their jewellery studios to the public for a one-day event in participation with Sydney Craft Week. Open from 11am through to 8pm, this is a perfect opportunity to meet the precinct’s resident luxury-item makers and explore this rare creative hub in the middle of Sydney CBD.

 

Jewellers’ bench sales will see direct sale prices from the designers on gold, silver and platinum items of hand crafted jewellery. Gaffa’s gold and silversmiths work intimately with their clients to produce bespoke pieces – from engagement and wedding rings to carefully designed pieces ready to be worn every day. Preview brand new collections and buy one off samples directly from the designers. Luxury lingerie brand B.PRIVÉ will also be open to fit you for custom-made silk lingerie.

 

If you’re looking to gain insight into a range of craft processes, experienced Sydney practitioners will demonstrate their skills. From 11 – 12 pm, Felix Gill and Danica Moorcroft will show some wax methods that they use in their practices. Melanie Ihnen, of contemporary jewellery store Studio 20/17 Atelier, will be in the studio making some of her married metals from 1-2 pm.. Daniel Cap will show you how he makes one of his mokume gane rings between 3-4 pm.

 

If you aren’t able to attend during the day, stop by for a drink on Gaffa’s rooftop from 5-8pm. Gaffa Creative Precinct’s unlocked studios is a perfect opportunity to preview exclusive work by experienced craftspeople and designers.
