Had an amazing time! Rach was so knowledgeable and nothing was too much of a problem. The studio was well set up and was great to craft in it. A very relaxed and informative session. Can't wait to come back for another course! Rach also makes a great brew! Thanks again for a great session

The course was so much fun. Rachel is a great teacher, really knowledgeable and friendly.
It was fantastic to get stuck in and making my first item straight away, I got to try lots of different techniques and tools. There really is all you can drink tea & coffee too and lunch was superb.
I came away with so many beautiful items and the confidence and skills to to have a go at home.
Can't wait to book the next course!

The course was fantastic - I came home with some beautiful pieces. I'm not sure if I can bear to give them away as Christmas gifts though, which was my intention! Everything was laid out so simply and Rachel's instructions/guidance were superb all throughout. We tried so many different techniques - I actually can't believe the items I made. Homemade bread and shortbread for lunch topped the day off perfectly! I will absolutely be doing some of her other courses soon.

Response from Gifted Crafts Company:

A huge well done and thank you. Your pieces were definitely too lovely to give away!

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.
