What a fantastic course, Roderick is friendly and fantastic at teaching and encouraging complete beginners like me! Everything was fully explained and and I had such an enjoyable time in a fab venue. I have come away with a ring I love and will be sure to return in the future. Thank you :)
Response from Roderick Vere:So pleased you had a great time Becky. Was great to meet you and see the wonderful ring you rustled up too! Take care and stay in touch.
I liked the workshop very much. It was my second silversmithing course in Somerset and I must say that Mr Vere is an excellent teacher. I liked not only showing the techniques, but giving some tips and also explaining how this or that process works.
Don't know if it works, but we were wearing the masks during the whole workshop and were using hand gel. Very positive atmosphere.
Response from Roderick Vere:Thanks for such a lovely Ekaterina - so pleased you enjoyed yourself and that you learned some new tips and tricks! Stay in touch and look forward to seeing more creations on your jewellery making journey. Best wishes, Rod
