JaneG reviewed: Forge your own silver spoon, two day course

"I loved the spoon forging course. Charlotte was very supportive and encouraging and clearly explained all the different skills required to make my silver spoon. I did ache a little after the first day, as I’m not used to wielding a hammer, but it was great fun and Charlotte was with me every step of the process. I was amazed I managed to forge a beautiful and useable spoon from a relatively small ingot of silver in just two days. I have learned a lot of new skills and surprised myself. Charlotte is a great tutor, very friendly and thoughtful."

Charlotte Tollyfield Contemporary Bespoke Silverware responded:

" Thank you so much for your review, Jane. I'm so pleased you enjoyed the course, you did a great job and produced a lovely spoon. It was a pleasure to welcome you to the workshop. Best Wishes, Charlotte. "

Christiaan reviewed: Forge your own silver spoon, two day course

"This is a really great course. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Charlotte takes you through each stage by a demo and then you work though each stage yourself. Definitely the best way to learn so nothing is rushed and you have the time to take it all it. There is quite a bit of hammer work on the first day so you'll feel your arm muscles after the first day but nothing to worry about. Charlotte is very patient and very experienced so able to clearly explain each stage which really helped. The workshop atmosphere is great and helped by the small group numbers. I can really recommend this course I learn't loads and would happily go on another of Charlotte's courses. Best of all you walk out with a lovely silver spoon all hard forged by your own hands. I'll be using my silver spoon to eat copious amounts of ICE CREAM :-)"

Rob Irvine reviewed: Raise your own copper bowl, two day course

"I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of this course. Great company, friendly atmosphere and well instructed by a very talented and knowledgeable artist / craftswoman, Charlotte guided me through every stage of the process from flat disk of copper to shiny bowl. Providing insight and tips in a very relaxed and informal environment, I felt in good hands. At the end of the 2 day course I was happy and proud of what I had produced and is now displayed at home. I would wholeheartedly recommend this course to anyone. Thank you Charlotte."

Charlotte Tollyfield Contemporary Bespoke Silverware responded:

" Thank you Rob! You're very welcome and I'm so glad you enjoyed your time on the course. You did a great job and it was a pleasure to have you in the workshop. Best Wishes, Charlotte."

Julian Clayton reviewed: Raise your own silver whisky tumbler, three day course

"Charlotte gave us just the right balance of demonstrating the techniques of raising and letting us raise our own pieces There was always plenty of help or assistance when needed and overall I came away with much more confidence in knowing the techniques as well as a renewed enthusiasm for silversmithing I would recommend this course for all from beginners to those with some previous experience"

" Thank you for your lovely review Julian. I'm glad you enjoyed the course and that you found it helpful. I look forward to seeing what you produce with your newly honed skills. Do keep in touch! Best Wishes, Charlotte."

Christiaan reviewed: Raise your own silver whisky tumbler, three day course

"I loved this course it was brilliant. If you're interested in raising then this is the course for you. Charlotte was patient and great at explaining the concepts. Better than that though is she took the time to walk us through each stage and then kept an eye on us to make sure we didn't mess up. Its a great way to learn and really absorb the theory as well as the practical aspects. You can't learn this from a book and this is the best way to learn it. We were also able to go at our own pace without disrupting the other person on the course. Its basically one to one tuition and well worth the money. Be prepared for a bit of a workout but nothing you won't get the hang of. Best of all Charlotte is very very experienced so able to answer all your questions. I came away with a lovely tumbler at the end. Go for it you won't regret it."

Charlotte Tollyfield Contemporary Bespoke Silverware responded:

" Thank you so much for your review Christiaan. I'm so glad you enjoyed the course and that it provided the experience you were looking for. It was an absolute pleasure to welcome you to the workshop. I hope you enjoy many a good drink from your new tumbler. Cheers!"

Ed & Ann McNamara reviewed: Forge your own silver spoon, two day course

"We did this course as part of our Silver Wedding anniversary celebration. It was a great couple of days and we managed to produce a unique silver spoon each for us to remember our anniversary by plus having a nice weekend in Sheffield. Charlotte is a great teacher balancing out letting us discover how to work the metal and helping us as we went through the process. We both feel like we really learnt a lot and would recommend the course to anyone."

John Cooper reviewed: Raise your own copper bowl, two day course

"This was my first experience of making anything since school, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Charlotte was a great tutor, friendly and not at all intimidating. She gave the right level of guidance and then allowed us to get on with the task, offering help where necessary. It was also a privilege to watch her at work. I was surprised how good the copper bowl looked by the end of the second day. I'd definitely recommend the experience to others."

Lynn Brindle reviewed: Raise your own silver whisky tumbler, three day course

"This course was perfect to work through the process of raising a piece of silver. I had experience of making jewellery in silver but none of the specific skills of silver smithing. I have read how to raise a piece of silver but felt I needed a dedicated course to work though the process. This course was just what I was looking for. Charlotte is a very good tutor, with clear demonstrations on what to do and providing clear advice and guidance as we worked our own piece. The whole experience was very enjoyable as well as educational and I came away with my own worked silver cup, which I'm really pleased with."

Louise P reviewed: Design and make your own copper Christmas decorations, half-day course

"I was given this course as a Birthday present and I did't really know what to expect but I really enjoyed the course. Charlotte was very welcoming and the studio was a lovely place to work. I usually think of myself as being terrible at craft, but despite this I managed to make two beautiful decorations which I was very proud of. I would love to do another of these courses - it was a really lovely day."

Phil Sutcliffe reviewed: Design and make your own copper Christmas decorations, half-day course

"What a fantastic day. My granddaughter and I had a wonderful day working with Charlotte. Charlotte was patient with us, as we learnt to use the tools to make our Christmas decorations. When ever we needed help and advice she was there and encouraged us throughout the day. The finished decorations look amazing and this is down to Charlotte’s wonderful instructions and encouragement. Tea, coffee and biscuits are readily available throughout the course. My granddaughter has already insisted that this becomes part of our annual Christmas preparations. Having seen the finished pieces and listening to us talk about what a wonderful time we had, my daughter wants to join us. If you only book one craft course a year make it one with Charlotte."

Lyn Glazzard reviewed: Raise your own copper bowl, two day course

Ian Mitchell reviewed: Forge your own silver spoon, two day course

"I would have never have thought of signing up for this course, but I won it in a prize draw at an exhibition of silversmithing at the Harley Gallery. It turned out to be a most enjoyable two days. With no previous experience at all I succeeded in producing a remarkably spoon-like object. Charlotte was an excellent tutor with the right balance between showing you how to do it and letting you get on with it yourself. The workshop was well equipped and a good working environment. Having the piece hallmarked at the end of the process is a nice touch - gives you a warm feeling you've produced something of lasting value."
