Helen is an excellent teacher, inspiring confidence in even the most novice of crafters. I have found Helen’s workshops to be a great relaxing opportunity to learn a new craft, at my own pace. The sense of achievement in creating my own jewellery has been wonderful. Enjoyable from start to end and can’t recommend Helen highly enough.
Response from Butterfly Effect Studio:Dear Amanda, thank you for taking the time to review the workshop you attended. I always enjoy sharing these days with like minded people and your enthusiastic approach to suggestions or guidance was a joy to see. Despite feeling like a novice you confidently designed and created several superb pieces. Your colour palette reflecting your calm and warm personality. I was thrilled to see how you relished the day, your positive energy was inspiring for the whole group, thank you once again.
Helen is such a kind and gentle teacher who inspires creativity. The workshop was extremely well organised with plenty of resources to choose from to make your jewellery. A fantastic experience.
Response from Butterfly Effect Studio:Hi janine, thanks for reviewing the workshop you attended and I’m so pleased you enjoyed the experience. It’s always very rewarding for me to work alongside fellow art teachers, sharing ideas and discussing creative experiments, it was a pleasure to have you join the workshop. In addition to that the jewellery you created was stylish and the subtle hints of dichroic glass shimmered as it was viewed from different angles. You went home with some really exquisite pieces.
I love Helen’s workshops. She has a treasure trove of materials and resources and when I’m lost for an idea Helen always has hints and suggestions to point me in the right direction. I’ve produced things I would never have thought possible thanks to her guidance and creativity. Highly recommended.
Response from Butterfly Effect Studio:Sue, it’s always a pleasure to have your company at the workshops, your exciting experimentation of materials and techniques is so inspiring. I always look forward to your positive enthusiasm and your creations are such a joy to see. Thank you for your kind words and I’m so pleased you enjoy the workshops.
I thoroughly enjoyed the day, which was a generous gift from a dear friend. It's the first time I've made jewellery but with Helen's encouragement, knowledge and skilled teaching I was delighted to end the day with some lovely unique pieces to take home. Very rewarding and therapeutic!
Response from Butterfly Effect Studio:Hi B, thank you for taking the time to review the workshop and so pleased you enjoyed it. I recognised that you were a little apprehensive initially but the creative thought you put into your designs was so impressive. Your sensitive use of colour and texture worked so well and the jewellery you created was stunning. I remember you mentioning that one set you made was going to be a birthday present for a friend and I’ve no doubt they would have been thrilled with your thoughtful gift. Thanks again for joining us.
