The Workshop was set up in 2012 by Robert and Jenny Dutson to share their passion for beautiful jewellery.
Robert began his career over 40 years ago as a jeweller’s apprentice and has gained innumerable skills and a wealth of experience in his time as a manufacturing jeweller. He has worked in industry, as a workshop manager for a chain of jewellers and has most recently been managing director of The Workshop. In his time at the bench, Robert has made accessories for Michael Jackson, worked on Leeds’s civic mace and Robert and Jenny also made the civic regalia for Hebden Bridge Town Council, alongside making exquisite engagement and wedding rings for many happy couples.
Jenny started her career with a jewellery degree from Sheffield Hallam University and has previously sold her work to galleries around the UK and had several solo exhibitions. She has taught jewellery CAD to students from all over Europe and has an absolute passion for designing beautiful jewellery, taking her inspiration from natural and architectural forms.
Together, Robert and Jenny are the perfect team to make stunning pieces of bespoke jewellery and teach our popular jewellery making classes.
