There are countless jewellery stores around, and a lot of them have decided to host workshops in stores, where they teach people how to make their own accessories. Since the rate of rent is so high, and it is so difficult to run a business now, with the fierce competition and the competitive pricing induced by large chain stores; the option of transforming your storefront into a multi functional workshop space has proven itself to be a good way to potentially increase revenue.
This is also why there are a lot of workshops now, and like everything else, too much of anything could well drive people’s attention away. It could also lower quality overall, and again, create another pool of competition. I often look out for unique workshops myself, and to be honest, a lot of them look very similar, which is why I have yet enrolled in any of these jewellery making courses even though I love to DIY myself.
I stumbled across Obellery, and was attracted to this letter box making workshop that they held earlier in August. I went through images of their previous workshops, and was excited to see how different their designs were. Focused on selling and teaching people about the art of metal craft, the brand offers a series of workshops including silver ring and bangle courses; beginner, intermediate and advance jewellery making course; and a neat wedding ring making class. Photographs from their Facebook page shows that their cozy unit at PMQ has space for around 4 students at a time, allowing each student to receive a good amount of attention, with enough people to encourage a pool of discussion. The products that they have in store are also very unique, check out their website for more information.
