The course was the most fun I've had in years. Right from the start Rachel had me pouring pewter into moulds, it was the full-day course so we had time to have a go at loads of techniques and ways of casting. Everything was explained fully and you were hands-on most of the time. The lunch was superb, constant tea as it says in the introduction but best of all lots and lots of time to spend making, for instance you cast a pendant then you drill a hole in it, then make a ring for it and select a chain to hang it from. I'm starting to make my own casts now and it's great.
Response from Gifted Crafts Company:You did so well with your pewter Al. Can’t wait to see what you do at home. Thanks so much. Rach
Now 75 I had never made jewellery before. I moulded, heated, cut and polished some pewter and then I engraved it with initials and a logo and it now adorns my keyring. Rachel was a brilliant teacher and very enthusiastic and patient. I shall certainly join a group again when I make another visit.
Response from Gifted Crafts Company:Thank Keith. And well done. Look forward to seeing you again soon.
Rachel has a lovely set-up for many crafts. She is a great teacher and communicates her skills well in a happy and relaxed atmosphere. We were there with the family and you soon get caught up with making lovely things.
Response from Gifted Crafts Company:Thank you Fay. Look forward to seeing you again soon.
Thank you Rachel for a great day. It was good fun to try a new skill and Rachel was very patient and supportive. Looking forward to the next course!
Response from Gifted Crafts Company:Thank you Gill. You did so well.
What a fun day. Rachel is really supportive and amazingly creative. I did the course with my mum and my adult children. Something for the whole family regardless of age. Thank you. Can't wait to come back.
Response from Gifted Crafts Company:Thank you so much. You did really well.
An amazing course! Rachel is brilliant - encouraging, enthusiastic and successfully positive, whilst clearly explaining and modelling new skills. We got to try lots of different techniques & produced beautiful items. Thank you, can't wait to book the next course!
Response from Gifted Crafts Company:Thank you. I loved the hill / contour designs that you did. They were lovely.
