Fabulously productive day with treasures to take away. Very well taught, Kate addressed all learning needs whether a beginner or more skilled.
Most enjoyable day - I would recommend to anyone. Come and have fun, friendly company and a great tutor.
I really enjoyed the relaxed but productive day. Kate was open and friendly and I felt very comfortable asking for help when needed. I came away confident and very pleased with my rings.
Thank you Kate for a really interesting day.
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.
Booked this for my wife as a Birthday present and to say she was delighted is an understatement. The day did not disappoint, her rings are really impressive and she said it was a great experience.
