Went to an afternoon workshop with Angela early February 2020. Angela is an excellent teacher and is very patient. She certainly knows her subject and is always ready to provide guidance but without taking over. The projects you make are very much your own. There are lots of different styles of beads available for you to make your projects. I came away with a lovely floating necklace and some matching earrings.
There were only two of us on this session as two ladies had pulled out but that didn't make a difference and it was a very sociable afternoon. I would recommend this course if you are a beginner and even if you understand the basics. I learnt a lot from this session.
I am trying to do fifty fabulous things for my fiftieth year , and so as one of my experiences I went on the basic bead jewellery course run by Angela. I spent a wonderful morning creating jewellery I know I will wear again and again. All the materials were provided and Angela is a fantastic teacher. I highly recommend this course as a great introduction to a new and addictive hobby .
Myself and a friend attended one of Angela's workshops as an introduction to jewellery making and it was fab. Just what I was looking for with the right balance of showing you what to do with time to have a go with help on hand! Feeling very inspired now to do more at home. Thank you
What a fantastic way to spend a snowy January afternoon and to get to grips with post-Christmas blues. Angela taught me how to make a floating necklace and for someone who is so inept at craft work, (me!), she did an amazing job, helping me to deal with any tricky bits - but don't worry there really weren't many. I was thrilled with the end result of a beautiful floating necklace and was able to give it to my mum as a birthday present, appreciated fully because it was hand-made with lots of thought and effort having gone into it. I was so impressed with Angela's patience and clear instruction that I later booked her to come into my school where I am Headteacher, to deliver an end of year workshop to our Y6s. They thoroughly enjoyed working with Angela and making some keepsake bracelets as a memory of their time at Primary school. Would highly recommend Angela's courses -really enjoyable and very therapeutic.
I LOVED this course and it kick-started me on the road to making my own jewellery so I am very grateful to Angela for that :) I am not very talented when it comes to crafts, not being all that practical but Angela explained everything well and was on hand to help. There was a large selection of beads to choose from and it was fun to create something unique and I also found it very relaxing, thank you Angela :)
A great way to 'switch off' and concentrate on something wonderful, relaxing and beneficial, as you get to take away something you are proud of.
A wonderful variety of beads to choose from and you get left to your own devices, or Angela is there every step of the way. She doesn't even care if you swear when you can't do the fiddly bits!!, hee hee.
You get to understand why Angela does this all the time ... all you want to do is get your creative juices flowing, and make more.
Highly recommended for anyone, of any age.
A wonderful afternoon with a group of friends. All materials provided and clear, concise instruction. So many beautiful, sparkly beads to choose from- an Aladdin's cave of delight!
We all made floating necklaces far beyond our expectation - we were all delighted! Suitable for all ages and fantastic value!
Can't recommend one of Angela's courses highly enough...
They may become addictive!
All materials provided were of high quality. Instruction was well differentiated. My mum (71) my daughter (10) and I (46 shhh) had a great time. I often get complimented on necklace my daughter made. What more could anyone want
