Pocket Studio is a small studio offering education in a range of traditional metalsmithing techniques


Alison Jackson

Founder of Pocket Studio


With no more than a small tool box and a bench, Alison started up Pocket Studio back in 2008. Since then it has evolved into a fully equipped and lively silversmithing workshop that is home to her own fully fledged craft practice and business.

Passionate about traditional handcrafts and ever so keen to keep them alive - Alison began sharing her knowledge and skills in metalsmithing in 2012. Blown away by the sheer enthusiasm her students have for these skills, Alison has developed a range of classes suited to complete beginners as well as those with some experience.

Our studio

Pocket Studio is a fully equipped silversmithing workshop that hosts a program of introductory metalsmithing courses.

After nearly 10 years in Queanbeyan, Pocket Studio re-located to a beautiful light filled space in mid 2017. The studio is now located in Mitchell within the ANCA artists' complex. We run a select number of workshops throughout the year. Keep in touch with new workshops by signing up to our mailing list.
