Toni explains everything really well and I felt I learned a lot in her class. I met a like minded friend there so we have now done two classes together and have arranged to do an enamelling class with Toni in the New Year.

Response from CG Crafts:Thanks Jan, it’s so lovely that you and Sarah have made friends in one of my classes. Looking forward to the next one. Toni
I just finished a half day with Toni Peers. I rate it 11 out of 10. Way exceeded my expectations. Clear tuition with lots of useful feedback. Generous tips and tools information as well as an opportunity for lots of practice. It was just what I needed. Big thanks

We had heard great comments about the courses that Toni delivers and we were not disappointed with the outcome of the three and a half hours spent with her. Lucy - our daughter (and fifteen school friends) were guided through the entire process from initial design, colour selection, choice of gems and firing. At the end of the enamelling session all 16 eleven year olds had created a unique ‘memory’ to treasure when moving up to secondary school. I have to confess that myself and another adult could not resist joining in and are both delighted with our end results. Toni - we will definitely be coming back!

My daughter and I have just had a really enjoyable day jewellery making with Toni. We made 2 pairs of earrings each and are chuffed to bits with them. Course very suitable for teenagers. Thanks Toni!

I had a great day at the silver clay making class, and would definitely recommend it to anyone interested in trying it. I was pleased with how my pendants came out and I felt I learnt a lot thanks to Toni! Thanks again for a fab day :)

Response from CG Crafts:Thanks Laura, glad you and your Dad had a great day. You made some beautiful jewellery - hope he's wearing those unique cufflinks.
I took my dad on this course as we had had a rather disasterous experience with silver clay trying to do it on our own. Toni explained everything really clearly, let us try painting silver clay slip (from her own stock) onto leaves and we produced some lovely pieces (even if we do say so ourselves!)

It was great to find a course locally on enamelling. I have learnt enough to give me the confidence to explore this process fully. I enjoyed the 5 hours I had with Toni, it was nice to meet her. Toni delivers the lesson very thoroughly and clearly. I am very proud of my two pieces that I made on the day.

My partner and I booked a course with Toni using silver clay. And it was a great experience. Toni was very paitent and informative. It is now something that we would both like to continue and learn more about. Fantastic. Give it a go.

Had a great one to one class with Toni on Tuesday 27th November. She is very knowledgeable and I learnt a lot. I was even able to salvage my very first firing which I thought was ruined. I would highly recommend a class with Toni in her home studio.

Response from CG Crafts:Thanks Helen, it was lovely to meet you and help you with your journey along your creative degree.
Toni is an excellent teacher and really welcoming, my friend and I did the beginners enamelling course and had lots of fun! We made 4 pieces each using the different techniques Toni taught us, and we are really pleased with the results! I will definitely be booking another course and would highly recommend to others :)

I booked this course for my sister’s birthday. We had a really enjoyable day making a range of items. Toni explained every step clearly and we had plenty of time to try out ideas. We were both delighted with our finished products. Highly recommend this for everyone, even if you don’t think you are very creative.

Mum and I had a lovely time with Toni making our silver jewellery. Between the two of us we produced 4 necklace pendants and 2 pairs of earrings (and a Christmas present ticked off the shopping list already!). Really pleased with what we produced and have already had compliments on my two necklaces. Toni was very informative, friendly and supportive - and tolerant of my indecision. Would definitely recommend Toni to others for their first foray into silver clay jewellery making. Thank you Toni.

I spent a lovely day with Toni learning wet felting and making a tablet case. She is an excellent teacher and generous with materials. Her explanations were clear and backed up with well written information to take home.
I also tried a little needle felting project.
I would certainly recommend her classes...it was an easygoing fun day learning a new skill.

Really enjoyed my day with Toni. Very friendly, knowledgeable teacher. Good to be in a group of only two for individual attention. Very pleased with pendant I made. Will be booking for other course I am sure!

Earlier this year, I attended a two-hour encaustic art workshop at the National Bee Spring Convention. As I now wished to increase my skills, I booked a one to one, full-day course with Toni. What an excellent tutorial it turned out to be. When setting up the day, I requested specific techniques and themes to be covered (seascapes and Christmas cards). Toni not only covered these areas but also taught several techniques that I had not previously tried. A very pleasant, relaxed and skilled tutor, Toni makes learning new encaustic art skills fun, informative and hugely rewarding. I certainly hope to study more encaustic art skills with her in the future. I highly recommend her.
