Jump in on the handicraft bandwagon and create your own beautiful jewellery with Longue Vue’s artist, Alice. What stands out about this brand are its organic textures and strikingly simple geometric shapes.
Alice will teach you more about designing and creating these delicate pieces, so you too can make your own. You can choose between a few designs like gold-foiling, marbling and even stripes - then at the workshop you’ll have your hand at some materials, and get to bring home your own jewellery set.
The seats and classes are limited, so book them ASAP.
