Rakhee Jones - - #35155

I had an amazing evening playing with silver, soaking up inspiration from the warm and welcoming studio.

Rachel was brilliant, put me at ease straight away and before I knew it I had created 2 necklaces using different techniques as well as picking up some truly amazing hacks in order for me to play at home without the expense of specialist equipment.

I honestly cannot wait to go back and learn more from Rachel. I think next time I'll share the experience with a friend or few (so I can go several times).

Thank you Rachel, gor the tea and your time.

Response from Gifted Crafts Company:

Thank you so much Rakhee. You are such a star. It was like meeting a kindred spirit! Take care. All the very best. Rach

Claire Carley - - #34977

This was my third workshop with Rachel and it did not disappoint. Rachel is very knowledgeable and guides you through the whole process. I was able to try different techniques and was really pleased with my results. I wish I could play in Rachel's workshop every day!

Response from Gifted Crafts Company:

Thanks so much Claire. You’re such a star. x

Sally Anne Jones - - #34190

An incredible experience! Rachel was not only the perfect host, putting us at ease but also the best teacher you could ask for.
Step by step, she implicitly demonstrated and explained, inspired and patiently re-explained…
Thank you so very much Rachel, I’m bowled over by what I created! I’ll love wearing my necklace and earrings (with pride). X

Response from Gifted Crafts Company:

Thank you so much Sal. It was an absolute pleasure. Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review and such lovely comments too, so kind! Well done again. Beautiful. Xxxx

Shirley Scott - - #33997

What a fantastic day.
I learnt lots of techniques in a wonderful environment and had all the help and support I could ask for from a wonderful lady.
I would not hesitate to recommend this course.
I knew nothing and came away feeling I had achieved a great deal, with two pairs of earrings that I made, and the skill and enthusiasm to want to make more.

Response from Gifted Crafts Company:

Thank you for taking the time and your lovely comments. Such a pleasure. Take care. Rach x

In-person course
Laura - - #33537

The venue is a lovely small campsite not far from Shrewsbury and was easy to find following the directions that were provided. Upon arrival there was a personalised welcome board signposting us where to park and to the studio. Rachel was very welcoming and patient with us throughout the session. We were able to use our own creativity and Rachel assisted us to make our ideas a reality. All the materials and advice we could need were provided (as well as tea coffee and biscuits) and we were both really surprised at the quality of the pieces we were able to produce. We thoroughly enjoyed the session and would highly recommend to anyone. Thank you Rachel :-)

Response from Gifted Crafts Company:

Thank you so much Laura. You are so kind to take the time to do a review and such kind comments too. It was an absolute pleasure. :-)

Peter Dent - - #33430

After a scenic drive into Shropshire we were welcomed at Gifted Crafts. There was a blackboard welcoming us and informing us where to park; a lovely touch. Following a nice cup of coffee, we discussed our designs with Rachel and she showed us the techniques. We had our own work stations and equipment and felt Covid secure.
Rachel was an excellent instructor sharing her expertise and knowledge to help us create our designs. She was patient, enthusiastic and supportive and we felt very proud of what we were able to produce in the workshop.
It exceeded our expectations and we hope to return in the near future. Thank you Rachel.

Response from Gifted Crafts Company:

You are so kind. Thank you Peter. And I was so impressed with your ideas. Look forward to seeing you again. All the very best. Rach

Amy Bennett - - #33385

Wow, what an evening! I cannot believe how much we managed to learn and practice in a 3 hour workshop! Rachel was such a great teacher, the pieces of silver jewellery we created are just wonderful and are going to make great gifts.
I am so tempted now to set up a home workshop to get more practice at this new learnt skill!
I would highly recommend this course to anyone.

Response from Gifted Crafts Company:

Thank you so much for your lovely comments and a great evening! You are lovely. 😀

Sharon Foxall - - #32829

What can I say except...what a fantastic experience my friend and I had while doing the silver jewellery workshop, the setting was magical and Rach was so patient with us as we decided to go totally off piste and design our own pieces. Can’t wait to do the next work shop and will be recommending it to all my friends and family.
Many thanks Rach, see you soon.

Response from Gifted Crafts Company:

Thank you so much Sharon. You are such a star. I loved working with you on your creative ideas. Such a pleasure. You both made such beautiful and unique pieces. Look forward to seeing you again. All the very best. Rach

Jess - - #32753

I spent a wonderful morning on the Beginner Silver Clay Jewellery course with Rachel.
I loved everything about it, from the setting and the sign at the entrance welcoming me, to the lovely conversations, Rachel's knowledge and passion for what she does, and her encouragement, help and support whilst creating lovely treasures and jewellery.
I will definitely be back to learn more about the art of silver clay, I'm hooked!
Thank you so much for such a lovely experience xx

Response from Gifted Crafts Company:

Thank you Jessica. You are so kind. You really did impress me with the beautiful pieces you produced. Look forward to seeing you again! x

Suzie - - #31826

I had an amazing morning with Rach. Snow on the hills but enough tea and coffee to keep my fingers warm while I watched magic being created. The course was well explained, all the equipment was ready to go when I got there. I came away with beautiful jewellery and treasured memories. Thank you.

Response from Gifted Crafts Company:

Thank you Suzie. You are so lovely. And you did brilliantly!

In-person course
Carly Lawrence - - #31216

This course was absolutely fantastic - I'm so amazed with the beautiful items I came home with. Who knew clay would turn into silver?! Even now, I still can't believe I made them! They get so many comments! Nothing was too much trouble for Rachel in terms of extra supplies or guidance on what to do/how. We tried so many different techniques over the course of the day and I'm so glad I decided to stay over at the campsite in one of the bell tents. I will DEFINITELY be booking on her other courses as soon as I can.

Response from Gifted Crafts Company:

Thank you so much Carly. And well done for your beautiful pieces. Looking forward to seeing you again.

In-person course

Really enjoyed my day at the art and craft workshop. Beautiful surroundings, hope to do another course there.

Thank you so much. It was lovely to meet you Keri. And I'm so pleased you are continuing your silver clay at home. It would be lovely to see you again. All the very best. Rachel

Thank you Kieron. Your key rings were a brilliant idea.
