This small, charming Kichijoji workshop offers classes in making small leather goods and brass or silver jewellery to people of varying experience levels. There’s really no set formula here, and the friendly owner will help you craft anything you’re itching to make.
If you’re just visiting, you can choose from the ready-made items or have the owner customise something for you on the spot. Cool brass bracelets perfect for stacking and layering are available, as well as a variety of rings, like one made from a brass nail. Once customised to fit, items can be personalised with your name or a special message.
You’ll also find a Hiro Workshop pop-up at Inokashira Park’s Art Market every weekend, where you can get jewellery customised there and then.
Call or DM on Facebook to reserve a spot, or drop-in during opening hours. Bracelet workshops take at least 90 mins, with brass starting at ¥4,500 and silver at ¥8,000. Workshops for leather tote bags require two sessions and start at ¥6,000.
