Hi I’m Lucy…

I know that making jewellery isn’t as easy as it looks, believe me, I have been exactly where you are right now. It wasn’t just learning skills the right way that was the problem, but procrastination and motivation used to drive me totally insane. And don’t even talk to me about that feeling of utter uselessness when things didn’t go to plan. But I want let you in on something, this journey – it really can be fun, engaging and rewarding! I promise.

Hopefully see you over in the forums very soon for a chat

Direct Help

Just because you’re learning to make jewellery online, doesn’t mean you have to learn alone! Metalsmiths need company too!

Quality classes are super important, and you know we understand that.  We put our heart and soul into our classes to make sure they not only crystal clear, but also a tonne of fun. But, I really believe to make the most of any learning opportunity, we all need so much more.  We want a community, inspiration, and an occasional friendly kick up the arse to keep us motivated. When something isn’t going to plan, you need a little feedback, or just lack motivation in general, working alone is less than helpful.  That’s why we created our Metalsmith Academy Membership Programme. We designed our platform to re-create an online version of exactly what we had here in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia: a supportive and caring jewellery family.  A family who celebrate wins together, bitch over things that didn’t go right, and generally just encourage each other so nobody ever feels like they’re in this alone.  Don’t worry, we’ve got you!

What our Metalsmith Academy Members are Saying......

Lucy Walker Metalsmith Academy is the most amazing, inspirational and brilliant learning experience I have ever known. The tutorial videos and handouts are so detailed and well explained it is as though you are in the same room as Lucy. One person commented on Instagram, ‘Lucy’s classes are awesome’, and they absolutely are! I intend to be a member for quite some time! Congratulations Lucy and your team, you are amazing.
Paula Morris
Lucy Walker is hands down the best jewelry teacher I have come across, and I have come across a few. Her classes are packed with information, tips and tricks and many other resources. Her classes move at a clip and doesn’t dwaddle like many others I have seen. Her website and forum are readily creative and smart and yes, informative. The forum is great – you are never left without an answer. Between Lucy and the great students’ community you always get an answer. As if that weren’t enough, Lucy has a great sense of humor.
Nilanjana Van Order
Lucy gives very clear instruction, shows steps from different angles, as well as demonstrates various methods to get the job done. Her humor is infectious and I feel as though I’m there in her studio in person. The content of the classes is unlike any other courses available online, which has been very beneficial to my growing metalsmith skills. I would highly recommend these courses to the aspiring jeweler at almost any level!
Laura Hingley

As many times as you like as long as your subscription is active

Yes you will need specific tools for this class, we have included a basic tool list above, and the course contains detailed tool handouts together with product codes for all tools used during the class.

Unfortunately, we can’t provide a specific answer to that questions.  It depends on the tools you decide to purchase and the quality.  We try to include as many options as possible in our classes so that student’s can make choices based on their budget, but we will be honest, tools are not cheap.

The videos are only playable through the website and so are not downloadable.

Absolutely you can!  It would be pretty tough to work with your laptop on your workbench.

If you do want that little extra support, don’t worry at all – that is one of the main reasons why we launched our membership.  Lucy, Vennice and the team will be active in the forums daily to help with any problems you might be having with the classes.

Unfortunately not at this stage, however our handouts that accompany the videos have extensive, easy to follow instructions.
