I originally booked this course because I wanted to learn a new creative skill. Over the 6 week period I went from being a complete novice to reasonably proficient. Bernard is an excellent tutor - very supportive and extremely knowledgeable. He and Jane also made the learning process really enjoyable. After that initial 6 weeks I was hooked and wanted to keep getting better so I immediately booked onto the intermediate course. 18 months later I am still attending - pushing my skills further and further with Bernard's expert help. Would recommend this course to anyone.

Always wanted to do some silver jewellery making (I buy enough of it). This course was just great. Introduced me to the basics and really got me going. It's amazing what you can produce in such a short space of time. Bernard has a wealth of knowledge and experience and I don't think there is much he doesn't know about his subject. Great value for money. Highly recommended

-

Found this course online when local authority craft class failed to run due to low numbers-serendipity! Low numbers at Bernard and Jane's classes means lots of attention, no queues for equipment and lots of interaction between tutors and students in a relaxed atmosphere.B&J are so supportive and encouraging.I'm glad I discovered JWL .

Undertaking the starter course 18 months ago started a weekly obsession at Bernard and Jane's Workshop.
It's this simple - if you want to get a grounding in Jewellery making then book the course. These guys are amazing both in their skills and their attitude to people and life.
Highly recommended!!

-

Bernard and Jane are really nice - helpful and very knowledgable with a wealth of experience which they are willing to share.
The workshop is well equipped and designed so you always have space to work regardless of class size.
The atmosphere of the classes is relaxed, creative and supportive but with Bernard and Jane leading it it wouldn't be anything else.
The cost of this course is a total bargain, if you are thinking of doing this, just stop thinking now and get it done or you'll regret it.

-

This is a superb course. The tutors are patient and helpful, and let you learn at your own pace. You are taught all the basics, and after doing the course I am now designing and creating my own work from copper, bronze and silver. Highly recommended and very good value for money.
