Fantastic experience and a very enjoyable day. I was a complete novice, having never made anything before - Kate is very encouraging, really good at explaining what you need to do step by step, demonstrating each of the processes and great at supporting you with your ideas of what to create.
It was lovely to meet new people, who all made the day even more special.
The setting of the course at the Jenny Ring was great, we were very well looked after with refreshments, lunch, cake and prosecco!! I would highly recommend the experience. Thank you for a great day x
What a fantastic course! As a compete beginner I learned so much in just one day, thanks to Kate and her excellent teaching. Loved the day and will be booking another course with Kate. I couldn't recommend this course more highly, absolutely brilliant.
Second course with Kate. The first was stacking rings. Wow!, silver clay is a delight to work with and the only limitations are your imagination.
Kate was as helpful and informative as ever. I came away with some beautiful jewellery and the confidence to order a kit to continue creating at home.
I would highly recommend Kate's craft courses.
I was completely new to silver clay but I came away from the workshop feeling like I could produce high quality pieces. Kate was so informative and the perfect guide; patient and embraced all our artistic ideas- nothing was too much trouble. The venue was great and lunch extremely tasty. Needless to say I’ll be booking more workshops with Kate to improve my technique. Highly recommended.
Never done anything like this before. Had a really informative day with lovely people. Kate was brilliant. Always on hand to improve my technique! And came away with some beautiful pieces I love. Thanks Kate
I have been working with silver clay for a while now but felt I would benefit from a bit of guidance. I've just advanced a few years worth of skill in one day, well worth the money. I cannot recommend highly enough, thank you Kate.
I had an amazing time on this course. Kate is such a patient teacher and has so much knowledge. I went on another silver clay course with someone else but didn't feel I learnt very much. I learnt sooo much more on this one. I know I'm going to be able to make my own silver jewellery now!
