I was given craft course vouchers by my grown-up children as a birthday present. My daughter thought making a pendant would be down my street and how right she was! Sarah and her husband welcomed me in such a friendly way that I felt at ease straight away. Sarah was an excellent teacher and gave me superb 1:1 tuition on each stage of the necklace making process in her delightful garden workshop. With Sarah's guidance, I learnt how to use tools effectively and safely. I designed, cut, filed, hammered, polished, satinised, and soldered the silver and in the end created a three leaf pendant of which I am very proud! Sarah has a wonderful knowledge of her subject and made the session relaxed and great fun! I'd highly recommend this course to anyone who likes jewellery and enjoys being creative. Thank you Sarah for a day to remember!
Had a fabulous time with Sarah, I learnt and did all the processes that were promised, all explained simply and very much hands on. I also came home with a beautiful new pendant (if I say so myself)! Plus tea and cake on tap 😉 Thanks Sarah x
Sara was the most patient, fun instructor ever. We had a 50th party with her and came away with a new group of friends with her husband and daughter appearing throughout the day. We had a wonderful day and came away with a gift that you made to your own specification that no one else will have.
Thank you Sara a fabulous day.
Sarah was a fab teacher and so welcoming. Very accommodating to a group of 5 friends. She designed a gorgeous pendant for us that was easy to make and so modern. I have worn it every day since. She didn't rush us at all. She and her family were perfect hosts providing refreshments and even a bottle of prosecco and cake as it was a birthday celebration.
I would definitely recommend and would like to go again
We booked this course as a birthday treat for my sister-in-law. There were 5 of us in total with varying degrees of craft ability and Sarah was fantastic, spent time with us all guiding us through intricate processes. Sarah and her family went out of their way to make us feel welcome and ensure the day was special. We were all so pleased with the end results which gave us all a unique piece of jewellery to treasure and remember the day by. I would definitely recommend it.
Had a fabulous time and will definitely be going back.
I met Sarah when my husband took me to her house for a birthday surprise lesson to make a necklace.
She gave us a warm and friendly greeting and made some yummy cookies.
She is passionate about what she makes and she is a wealth of knowledge.
Her work shop is so well kitted out, I came away envious.
The lesson was fantastic, I learnt so so so much with knowledge and practically. I came away with lots of food for thought. I love my necklace I made.
I would 100% with out a doubt recommend Sarah to anyone.
Fantastic lesson, thank you.
