what a fantastic course, a few hours making your own bespoke piece of jewellery which I decided to use as an opportunity to start of the family air loom by making a butterfly pendant and necklace for my daughter which I will give to her for Christmas. Thank you Martin you are a blessed teacher who is patient, helpful and clear in instructions. I would defiantly reccomend and would take part in more classes in the future.

I attended the 'make a necklace course' and thoroughly enjoyed it. I've never made anything at a craft course before, but I found the instruction and processes to make my beautiful flower necklace (that everybody comments on) really easy to follow. The workshop is perfect for learning in and Martin was very patient and helpful. I also met some lovely new people.

I had a great time.
I came away with a necklace that I have worn many times since.
And some basic knowledge of silver cutting and shaping and the rudiments of handling solder, small blow torches and finishing. A lovely experience makes me keen to do more.
A patient and excellent teacher to 6 novices.
