Awesome day making a ring, bangle and dangly earrings designed by myself, under the instruction and supervision of Mark who is incredibly knowledgeable, helpful and patient, as well as having a great sense of humour! He taught us various different techniques required for making jewellery. Thoroughly enjoyed our day and would highly recommend it. Mark has a workshop well equipped with all the required tools. He and Terri welcomed us into their home and fed us well. A huge thank you to both of you for a wonderful day.
I traveled from Scotland to do this course and it was well worth it!!
The morning started with a welcome cup of coffee before heading out to the workshop to make a ring. Mark explained the techniques required and then set us off taking it step by step and even coping with us using different shapes and sizes of silver which required slightly different methods.
A delicious lunch of soup and sandwiches was provided by Terri and much to my surprise they even coped with me being coeliac!! Thank you so much, it was much nicer than the ones I had brought with me!!
The afternoon was for us to make some pieces that we wanted so I managed a bangle and a set of stud earrings!
Terri bless her provided us with more hot drinks and biscuits to keep the concentration going and before we knew it it was all over!
The day was great fun, informative and I'm now the best kitted girl in town!! Thank you both very much.
We booked on one of Mark's beginners courses as a family of four and had a truly fantastic day. We each (age range 13-53) got the chance to make a silver ring from scratch and then in the afternoon we had the opportunity to branch out, and made pendants and more rings. Mark was patient, helpful, fun and creative throughout, explaining the science of what we were doing, and ensuring that we tried all the techniques involved in making some lovely things. It was a really fun day and we would recommend it without hesitation.
Thank you for your review Simon. I really enjoyed my day with you and your family, I have to say the creativity, imagination and skill demonstrated by your two daughters was amazing (you and Sophie didn't do too bad either). If you have any pictures of the hedgehog and the moon pendant I would love to feature them on my website.
Fantastic day with Mark making 3 pieces of jewellery. Mark is very generous with his time and resources and is an excellent tutor tailoring the day to suit my preferences. He has a spacious workshop kitted out with all the equipment for making professional pieces of jewellery.
I can’t praise him or the workshop highly enough, and can’t wait to return for another day.- and thanks to Terry for drinks and home cooked lunch.
Not only a fab day but a brilliant price considering I came away with some beautiful jewellery
Thank you for your review Gill, it was lovely to meet you and I'm so pleased you enjoyed your day with us. I hope to see you again in the near future so we can push your jewellery making skills a little further you definitely have a talent for it.
Myself and two friends had a thoroughly enjoyable day creating some lovely pieces of jewellery. Thank you Mark for being so patient and making us feel confident in what we were doing. Both Mark and Terri (super lunch and copies cups of tea - thank you Terri) were the perfect hosts.
I can't wait to return and make some more items of jewellery for myself and as gifts for friends and family.
Absolutely excellent course, we had lots of fun being creative and making some lovely individual pieces! My partner and I felt very welcome and looked after throughout the day and Mark is very knowledgeable and skilled in what he does which made learning about silversmithing very enjoyable.
We had such a marvelous day learning different processes and making several pieces of silver jewellery. Mark was so patient and so willing to help bring our idea's to life. Nothing was too much trouble. Both Mark and Terri are wonderful hosts and instantly made us feel welcome. We enjoyed a delicious lunch and as much tea/coffee as we wanted.
We chose to do this class together as a couple as an opportunity to learn and create something new. We were both so impressed with the pieces we made and can't wait to show everyone. We have every intention of returning with a view to making Christmas gifts for our friends and family. If you want a day out with a difference then go and enjoy a day creating beautiful things at dandelion silver!
