J & J Workshops are run by friends Jordanne and Jodie who met whilst studying Material Practice at Brighton University. They aim to help their students tap into their creative side through Jewellery making workshops. The one day classes are really good fun and are packed with lots of skills. Every student takes home with them beautifully hand crafted silver jewellery and often they surprise themselves with how professional their outcomes are. Typically, the workshops are run from from Redlees Studios in Isleworth, South West London, but they are now expanding into new areas such as Brighton and Lewes.

Jordanne is based in South West London, making and selling her Jewellery collections from Redlees Studios in Isleworth. She also works part time for a social enterprise called Fine Cell Work, where she teaches embroidery and stitching to a small group of men at HMP Wandsworth and on their Open the Gate program with ex-prisoners in the Hub Workshop in Battersea.
After graduating, Jodie spent some time broadening her skills and knowledge working for a local Brighton Jeweler. She has since started working with young people teaching Art and Textiles at secondary level in Brighton, whilst continuing to develop her own Jewellery collections in her home Studio in central Brighton
