Maker's bio

The craft courses are held at Devon's only Medal Mint. Bigbury Mint has been established since 1980 and creates medals for both military and commission clients. They also create their own bespoke jewellery and heritage gifts. Medal-making requires us to learn many different craft skills, some of which could be ‘lost’ as technologies change. We think it’s important to take the trouble to teach and pass on these skills and techniques.

Jacqui Dinmore reviewed: Bangle Making Course in South Devon, Nr Ivybridge

"Cannot believe I made 2 bangles from scratch in 4 hours! Tutors made the course fun and dealt with different abilities really well. I finished last but didn't feel in the least bit rushed. As a complete beginner I learnt loads, looking forward to doing another workshop here. Great morning with my besties."

Maryann Medland reviewed: Bangle Making Course in South Devon, Nr Ivybridge

"Myself and two best friends attended the course on Saturday 28 May. What a fantastic morning - would highly recommend it. Absolute beginners and all three of us left four hours later with two bangles which we were all very proud of. The Tutors made the process interesting and easy to follow. Excellent."

Lisa Thoms reviewed: Bangle Making Course in South Devon, Nr Ivybridge

"The Bangle Making Course was perfect in that it gave me time to hang out with a friend whilst learning a new craft and at the end we both had a couple of beautiful bangles. Would highly recommend if your looking for something different to do."
