Carol Green reviewed: Stacking ring making workshop (daytime) with Beccy Gillatt at Yardley Arts Northamptonshire

"Had a great morning making stacking rings. Was a little nervous as had never soldered before but Aiden was very helpful and patient. Was really chuffed with myself with what I achieved and can't wait to book another course. The only tiny problem I had was that I have hip problems and could've used a high stool as it was better to stand when working and the chairs were a little low but I would definitely recommend this course."

Beccy Gillatt Jewellery responded:

" Hi Carol, So great to hear that you enjoyed the session. Aiden will be delighted to read your review. Please do ask if you need a different seat as there are a selection in the main room. The chairs are traditionally low and the desks at armpit height for jewellery making to ensure makers don’t hurt their back by bending over and it also brings the work close to eye level to enable fine details to be seen easily."

"I enjoyed my evening course for sea glass jewellery course. I made 2 pendants and the instructor was very supportive and was available to help solder, bend and just make my pendants look fantastic. It was a great evening learning the techniques."

"This was an excellent course, I learnt so much and Beccy was very knowledgeable and helpful. I came away with a beautiful pendant and would be confident to try wrapping sea glass on my own now. I will be back for more of Beccys course."

Victoria reviewed: Sea glass jewellery making workshop with Beccy Gillatt at Yardley Arts in Northamptonshire NN7

"A wonderful class, I can't wait to do more. The venue was perfect, the teaching was clear and supportive. We are given everything to make some some beautiful pieces, and in a friendly small group. We all had as much individual support and teaching as we needed, and Beccy was great at giving everyone the confidence in their own ability. Some people had worked with silver before and some hadn't, and everyone was supported according to their experience and confidence. The 3 hours flew past and everyone completed their jewellery in that time. I couldn't recommend highly enough, thoroughly enjoyable and inspiring."

"I thoroughly enjoyed the sea glass course last night. It was set up in a covid safe way. Beccy is a fab teacher and always makes you feel that you will be able to make something beautiful and I'm happy to say that every time I've attended a course with Beccy I have come away smiling. Definitely recommend"

"I thoroughly enjoyed the evening. I felt ‘Covid safe’ and was made very welcome. This was my first time doing anything like this and I found Beccy’s tuition inspiring. She made me feel I could actually produce something (even though I’m usually all fist and thumbs clumsy!) Each stage was demonstrated clearly and simply by Beccy so that I was not daunted by the more challenging steps. With her help and encouragement I produced two very wearable pendants! I thought it was excellent value and I would recommend her courses to anyone."

Penny McGee reviewed: Sea glass jewellery making workshop with Beccy Gillatt at Yardley Arts in Northamptonshire NN7

"I did the sea glass workshop. Beccy is a great teacher. Each technique is demonstrated as you go along, and Beccy guides and supports individually in the class too, so there are no worries if you need something re-explained or have any questions. Everything about the class was ‘Covid-safe’ from the moment we stepped inside, without detracting from the warm, friendly atmosphere in the room. I’m very happy with my sea glass pendant and look forward to future workshops."

Beccy Gillatt Jewellery responded:

" Penny, So pleased you enjoyed the session and felt it was warm and friendly even with the Covid safety measures in place. Everyone did so well and I thoroughly enjoyed teaching the session back in my childhood village. Beccy"

"Beccy was a fabulous teacher, friendly and approachable but gave us space to do the work. The whole session was calm and well structured. I felt the covid safety measures implemented were more appropriate and did not detract from the experience. I would not hesitate to recommend to friends and family"

Mary-Ann reviewed: Stacking ring making workshop (daytime) with Beccy Gillatt at Yardley Arts Northamptonshire

"Really enjoyed this course. Social distancing and hygiene measures in place were great and didn't stop Beccy from giving accurate instruction. Never thought I'd end up with gorgeous stacking rings after my first go. Recommend this class!"

Beccy Gillatt Jewellery responded:

" It was great to teach you yesterday Mary-Ann and I’m so pleased you are happy with your three rings. Thank you for your feedback about the social distancing as it’s all new to everyone but great to hear it’s working ok. Everyone did so well!"

Dawn Humphreys reviewed: Sea glass jewellery making workshop with Beccy Gillatt at Yardley Arts in Northamptonshire NN7

"My friends and I had a group sea glass session with Becky in March. I am not a beginner but I was a bit rusty. I made a beautiful pair of green glass drop earrings which I’ve had many comments on since. Materials and equipment were all provided plus new and exciting techniques and tools that I’d never used or seen before! Over all this was a great experience. Getting together with good friends, be productive, learn new things and leave with a sense of achievement and a beautiful piece of jewellery. Perfect! Thank you Becky.X"

Kate reviewed: Stacking ring making workshop (daytime) with Beccy Gillatt at Yardley Arts Northamptonshire

"My children took part in a 1:2 session making rings. They both thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Finn and Liv are very creative but lack confidence! They really didn’t think they would be very good.Beccy’s teaching skills put them both at ease and the end results were superb. Both very proud of the rings they produced. A great gift for someone, something a little bit different. Or treat yourself. Hoping to take part in another one of Beccy’s workshops soon."

Beccy Gillatt Jewellery responded:

" I had such a great time teaching Finn and Liv to make a set of stacking rings. I loved their interested in all the tools and techniques and Finn’s enthusiasm was inspiring. Lovely to teach children new skills."

Cheryl Bowden reviewed: Sea glass jewellery making workshop with Beccy Gillatt at Yardley Arts in Northamptonshire NN7

"I had a lovely time on this course along with my friends, it was great to have the opportunity to sit and make something together and learn a new skill. Beccy is a brilliant teacher, very patient. Beccy demonstrates the process step by step along the way, stoping at each stage for us to complete that step before moving on to the next, giving clear instructions and helping us when we needed it. She is very approachable and provided a relaxed environment. At the end of the course I learnt a new skill that I can’t wait to use again and we came away with a lovely finished piece of jewellery which I just love wearing and that my friends and family comment on, and also a memory of great day shared with the friends that came along on the course with me. I enjoyed it so much I signed up for the resin workshop and will definitely be signing up for more ?"

Jane Roberts reviewed: Stacking ring making workshop (daytime) with Beccy Gillatt at Yardley Arts Northamptonshire

"We had a great time on this workshop and produced lovely stacking rings. I had bought two places for a present. I have never done a jewellery class before but Beccy is an excellent tutor, giving simple instructions and demonstrations that gave me confidence. Very good value for money and a lovely way to spend the evening learning new skills and producing stacking rings that I’m proud to wear every day."

Stephanie Donnelly reviewed: Sea glass jewellery making workshop with Beccy Gillatt at Yardley Arts in Northamptonshire NN7

"I attended a seaglass jewellery making evening with Beccy in July. Due to coronavirus, Beccy had had to change the normal set-up to accommodate for distancing and single-user tools, and I felt very safe throughout. I had brought my own seaglass and pottery, but the pieces Beccy had brought for us to use were beautiful. She talked us through each step at a level that was understandable, and made a necklace along with us. This made it so much easier to visualise each step we had to take, and video of her making along with us was projected onto a screen behind her so we could see without getting close-up. Beccy was able to come round and help us with anything we were uncertain of, and I always felt she was approachable and supportive of our efforts, with clear instruction where needed. The necklace turned out beautifully and I now have a wonderful piece of jewellery that I will treasure. I've already signed up to another course and intend to do more in the future. It was excellent value for 3.5 hours of teaching, plus all the materials required. I felt that I had truly learned a new skill, albeit at a novice level! I was surprised that we could all make such beautiful pieces without previous experience, which is testament to Beccy's teaching."

"Beccy is an excellent tutor and I absolutely loved this class. Social distancing was great and I felt comfortable in the classroom, with all of the measures in place. I was most impressed at how I ended up with perfectly round rings with no solder marks in my first ever class. I was not expecting to create something that I'd have chosen in a shop. Looking forward to talking more jewellery courses with Beccy."
