Silversmithing workshops

Everyone will ask where you bought your unique silver jewellery and you will be able to say “I made it myself!”

Cobb+Co Museum conducts a range of silvermsithing workshops to cater for the complete beginner to the more advanced student.

This year we have also added a range of special workshops where participants can further their skills in areas such as enamelling and casting.

Meet your Tutor

The workshops are conducted by Brisbane-based silversmith, Daniel Cox who specialises in handcrafted jewellery.  He enjoys working with clients and students to create pieces full of meaning that no one else will have!

Dan has conducted workshops throughout Queensland and has exhibited his work across Australia and internationally.
