This craft course provider has been awarded Silver status for receiving 5 or more 5 star ratings from previous students.

About Bigbury Mint

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.

Did this course with a group of friends and we're off out tonight with our new bangles on! I'm a total beginner and found it all really well explained, not scary, great fun. There is a relaxed atmosphere and plenty of help and guidance. We are all thinking about doing one of the other courses together now!!

Response from Bigbury Mint:

Hello Kate,

It was a great day and you all made some lovely bangles.

You were a fun bunch of people and I'm looking forward to seeing you again!

Matthew.

Just finished this course today. Great instruction by Fiona and I have ended up with 2 bangles that look fantastic. She guided our group through each technical step with clear instructions and a demonstration. I can’t wait to try out one of the other courses.

Response from Bigbury Mint:

Hi Pam,

Thanks for taking the time to respond.
I'm very pleased that you enjoyed the course and went away with something lovely to keep.

The courses are also a great way to make a special gift for someone.

Thanks again.

Matthew.

I loved this workshop, very hands on and well explained by two knowledgable instructors. A real range of ring designs could be made from a simple band and I felt like it gave me room for my creative vision whilst still being manageable in the time frame. Came away with two lovely rings I’ll enjoy for a long time.
