If you have never made silver rings before, don't be daunted - Kate is an excellent tutor who demonstrates how to do everything and gives everyone a hand if they get stuck! It was a lovely relaxed day and we all made 4 stacking rings to be proud of. I would definitely recommend this course.

Kate is an excellent tutor explaining the tools we would be using together with taking us through the steps to makings our rings and also giving us a manual to take away. We made four rings during an informative, fun day in good company.
