A bit about me:

I just love working with all sorts crafts, designing DIY bespoke pieces for the home and I try to upcycle as much as possible to be kinder to our planet and produce beautiful handcrafted pieces.

I studied Art and Design over 25 years ago at my local college, then became a member of the North Staffs Guilds of Craftsmen where I had the opportunity to display my work as well as give demonstrations.

I am a fully qualified tutor and am keen to 'boost up' your creative skills in this most enjoyable craft. Hopefully this will give you the confidence to move on to more precious metals in the future :)

Kami is an amazing person! Truly loved making our rings - she goes through the making process in a lot of detail and even helped us in extra time to finish off our rings.

Would recommend to any looking for a cute date night!
Fin and Sophie :)

We had a really good time at the workshop with Kami. She was so welcoming. The workshop was interesting, Kami was very knowledgeable and gave us lots of opportunities to try out different techniques.
We made some beautiful rings.

I would definitely do the workshop again to make something different

Response from Kamsi:

Hi Jessica, thanks for a lovely review. So glad you both tried various techniques for your jewellery and they look awesome! :)

As Polly says above, Kami is a lovely person: she’s enthusiastic, caring and interested in her students. We had a great time, with Kami supporting us to turn our very vague ideas into beautiful reality. She was able to accommodate two people doing very different things and using two different sets of skills and stayed attentive to us the whole time. We’ve definitely got the jewellery making bug and that’s Kami’s doing! Thank you Kami!

Response from Kamsi:

Hey Laura, thanks so much for coming to the workshop and glad you had some ideas of what you wanted to make and happy to be guided through the stages. Both of your pieces are fabulous! Thanks for a lovely review too :)

Really enjoyed this class. My partner joined me we both made a gorgeous ring each, Kimi was brilliant and explained and guided us through the process really well and gave us lots of options & ideas of what style we wanted to craft.

Hoping to do a pottery class with her next time. Highly recommend :)

Response from Kamsi:

Hey Nicole, thanks for a lovely review.

You both did amazing and understood there's quite a lot of different skills involved in making your rings come to life. I'm so proud of how well you both did with all of the tasks you needed to carry out.

Both yours and Phil's rings looked amazing! Thanks for joining me and I will send you a list of tools and equipment so you can continue with silversmithing at home :)

Really great course taught very well for beginners. Kami is very welcoming and helpful. Would highly recommend to anyone looking into this sort of activity.

Hi Anthony,

Thanks so much for your review. I am impressed with how well you handled each part of the process and once shown you picked up the skills really quickly! I love the texture you used and personalisation with stamping. Hopefully see you in the future for any other crafts you might be interested in :)

Hi Muhammed and Sumbul,
Thanks for a lovely review. It was great to see you both progress as beginners and I love the jewellery you made! I hope you will join me in the future for more silversmithing techniques or even a completely different craft :)

Kami is a lovely person, she explains everything well in her welcoming studio and all resources were to hand. She has excellent skills and enjoys passing this on to her clients.
I had a really enjoyable morning learning about various silversmithing skills including silver soldering and emossing usng the mill and I am going to try some of them out at home.
I will very possibly book more courses with Kami. <3

Response from Kamsi:

Hi Polly
Thanks so much for the lovely review and I'm so glad you found some new techniques you can apply to your jewellery making skills. It's so good when you can make an idea come to life like you did. I've so much more to teach you so you're more than welcome to come again or try a different craft with me. Take care 😊 x
