Thoroughly enjoyed this bangle making workshop on Saturday with a group of friends. Such a lovely thing to do - and you don’t have to be particularly creative! With some guidance from the lovely Fi, I was able to produce two bespoke bangles - one copper and one silver. I’m going to keep the copper one for myself and give the silver one as a gift. Such a therapeutic activity and a sense of accomplishment at the end. I shall be returning to make some earrings and a ring and will be buying vouchers for gifts for friends because it’s such a lovely experience. Thank you!
I'm really pleased you enjoyed the course!
I think it's a great thing to do with your friends and your bangle is a permanent reminder of the day.
Just finished this course today. Great instruction by Fiona and I have ended up with 2 bangles that look fantastic. She guided our group through each technical step with clear instructions and a demonstration. I can’t wait to try out one of the other courses.
Thanks for taking the time to respond.
I'm very pleased that you enjoyed the course and went away with something lovely to keep.
The courses are also a great way to make a special gift for someone.
Did this course with a group of friends and we're off out tonight with our new bangles on! I'm a total beginner and found it all really well explained, not scary, great fun. There is a relaxed atmosphere and plenty of help and guidance. We are all thinking about doing one of the other courses together now!!
It was a great day and you all made some lovely bangles.
You were a fun bunch of people and I'm looking forward to seeing you again!
