Was on this course today with my daughters it was given to me as a Christmas present. Really enjoyed it and meant a lot came away with a lovely pair of silver earrings. Thank you, it was great fun.. I would like to point out though on the course description it says it covers soldering which I was really looking forward to doing, so was disappointed to discover it wasn't included. Hence the good review and not excellent..
