If you still can't decide why not read some of the comments on my Testimonial Page that have been provided by past students on the One Day, Six Day or Improver Courses. You can also read a lovely editorial in MAGAZINE.
Small classes of up to five students allow personal coaching and ensure that all necessary safety measures and equipment use are learnt at an early stage.
Everyone has their own individual workbench and all tools are provided.
Six Week Beginners Courses initially run as a set programme to introduce the student to basic skills, and the opportunity to make some specific pieces of jewellery.
Students then progress to the Improver Course where they are encouraged to use their skills under expert tuition to produce individual pieces from their own designs.
One day courses are also available throughout the year as 'taster' days. These allow people to experience some of the skills and take home jewellery they have made on the day. Lunch is provided and all tools, materials and tuition are included.
