I came to York all the way from Chile to visit my daughter. One of the highlights of my trip was the jewellery making day-course I took with Richard. He went out of his way to meet my needs and provide me with an unforgettable jewellery making experience. Richard is extremely knowledgeable about his craft, but most importantly, kind, patient and an excellent teacher. His workshop is really well equipped; I was provided with everything I needed to make two beautiful silver rings that I got to take home.
Both Richard and his wife Catherine were really friendly and generous. I was offered tea and coffee throughout the day and was welcome to use their kitchen to heat and eat my lunch. I recommend Richard with no reservations, and look forward to taking another course with him in the near future.
Had a super day with Richard and made a beautiful bangle and two pairs of ear-rings. One to one tuition and all stages explained carefully. I would highly recommend this course.
Response from Boyne-Whitelegg Pottery:Thanks very much for the review. regards Richard
This course totally exceeded our expectations. Richard is fabulous at what he does. There are lots of choices available and you are encouraged to create your own designs. This is a fabulous way to spend a day and you will leave with some unique pieces. We have just had our second visit and are completely hooked!
Cannot recommend Richard and his course highly enough. From the offset very professional, discussing over the phone a plan for the day, very tailored to your aims and what you want to get out of the day(s). Richard is very knowledgeable about his craft and eagerly explained the processes and approaches to jewellery making and common errors to avoid. I went away much more confident in the process and with a couple of very nice creations!
