After her first child was born, Turbe gave up her career as an advertising producer and embarked on a new course at London Metropolitan University, studying jewellery and silversmithing. After her studies, she set herself up and worked solo in a small workshop in West London. This contrasts with her existing workspace in Kindred Studios where she shares a large workshop with 6 other jewellers.
“There’s a lot of joy and laughter when working with others. We also regularly resolve problems together on how to do things better. It’s a really happy environment to work in.”
In addition to providing low cost maker-spaces, we offer workshops to local schools as well as working with organisations like Age UK and the Dalgarno Trust. We also run scheduled AS/A level school tours with a talk from makers from each discipline, lasting about 1 hour.
