"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."

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."

Jo Guilor reviewed: Personalised Silver Band Ring Making Course in South Devon

"Sadly due to a genuine diary mixup which was my fault, we missed the course. However the provider was unable to re-book or offer a refund due to their cancellation policy. We have therefore had to forfeit the course fee for 3 people. The provider has offered us a 10% discount as a gesture of goodwill if we choose to rebook. We are unlikely to take advantage of this. We are bitterly disappointed to have missed the course, something we had originally planned to do before the pandemic and completely accept that it was our mistake. However, the level of compromise offered by the provider is disappointing and should we decide to devote additional funds to undertake a course, we will be looking elsewhere."

The girls were helpful and encouraging as we all experimented with patterns before making our rings. Very happy with the outcomes. A cuppa would have been appreciated."

Polly reviewed: Personalised ring making course in South Devon

"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."

Julie Briant reviewed: Silver bangle making course in South Devon*FULL*

"Thoroughly enjoyed this bangle making workshop on Saturday with a group of friends. Such a lovely thing to do - and you don’t have to be particularly creative! With some guidance from the lovely Fi, I was able to produce two bespoke bangles - one copper and one silver. I’m going to keep the copper one for myself and give the silver one as a gift. Such a therapeutic activity and a sense of accomplishment at the end. I shall be returning to make some earrings and a ring and will be buying vouchers for gifts for friends because it’s such a lovely experience. Thank you!"

Bigbury Mint responded:

" Hi Julie, I'm really pleased you enjoyed the course! I think it's a great thing to do with your friends and your bangle is a permanent reminder of the day. Thanks for taking the time to leave a message. Matthew."
