It is always our goal to start the event with all participants present. We are happy to delay the event by up to 15 minutes. If however in the event a participant/s are late we will delay proceeding no more than 15 minutes later than scheduled.

In the event a confirmed participant is unable to attend at the last minute we are happy to give you a jewellery kit for them. Unfortunately, no refunds are available after payment is made.

We have a minimum guest age of 7 years due to the small beads we use which could be a choking hazard.

Christine Smalley Founder and Creative Director of Etelage (est
2002), shares her passion for artisan traditions and vintage design. Drawing inspiration from 1920s deco style, 1960s jet set glamour and
1970s boho chic governs her artistic expression. She observes that
generally as a society we are becoming more mindful about our choices: conscious of choosing products which are made using artisan traditions and not mass produced, and seeking quality over quantity. So it is with that philosophy all Etelage tutors shares her skills and knowledge of jewellery design to encourage all students to awaken their creative soul and seek beauty, slow, artisan and local.

All Etelage tutors have a WWCC “working with children check” and they are updated every 5 years.
