"I have admired Lucy's work for many years and after visiting the workshop last year I was so inspired and excited at the idea of trying jewellery making myself.
The workshop completely exceeded my expectations. I had such an amazing weekend, first day just attending to watch my sisters - and on the second day getting stuck in myself.
Lucy's knowledge of techniques, teaching methods and enthusiasm we're fantastic. I'm a complete beginner and can't believe how professional both my sisters and my finished piece of jewellery is thanks to Lucy's guidance and support.
Would 100% recommend to anyone and really hope to return one day in the future myself!"
"I thoroughly enjoyed my day workshop with Lucy; she has excellent attention to detail, impressive knowledge and an infectious passion for her work. Learning new techniques, and seeing the work take shape was fascinating. Having no previous experience, I was really quite amazed to have produced such a stunning, beautifully finished, unique pendant by the end of the day. When I see it catch the light, I know how much careful filing was needed for that!"
"Lucy has an extensive knowledge that covers a wide range of tecniques in many different metals.
Her guidance & patience has given me the confidence to achieve a number of projects covering the more difficult aspects of silver-smithing.
Since my early 20's I have had a hankering to learn the art & now at the age of 65 I feel priveliged to have found a highly qualified mentor.
I look forward to each session in Lucy's fully equipped workshop. It is a tranquil space full of inspiration & knowledge."
"I spent my first day with Lucy yesterday and had a fantastic day. Lucy has an in depth knowledge having spent many years training and teaching jewellery making. I am looking forward to spending more days with Lucy to learn more skills. In one day I learnt a variety of different skills. It is great that Lucy encourages you to design your own pieces. Lucy's experience and amazing ability in the craft means that almost anything is possible. Lucy's style of teaching is great, she encourages you to think about the process and how it works, demonstrates well but you certainly do most of the making yourself. Looking forward to making learning and making lots more :) Thanks again!"
"I had a fantastic day, making a copper oak leaf pendant with Lucy. Not only did I take away a variety of jewellery making skills that I will use to make more jewellery in the future, I also enjoyed her company. Lucy taught me in a way that even as a beginner, I did not feel overwhelmed and was able to complete my pendant using many different techniques that I had no previous experience of doing. I look forward to doing another course with her in the future. Thank you Lucy :-)"
"My class with Lucy was fantastic! She taught me the basics of annealing and moulding copper into a ring. Definitely will need to come back again to learn some more techniques! Lucy was lovely and a great teacher. I really appreciate that she gave me a list of the tools that I would need to get started. I am very envious of Lucy's studio, just need to find a space to start my own now!"
"I have visited Lucy twice, and I am already planning my next visit. It’s great to have 1-1 tuition of the highest standard in a wonderful, well-equipped studio. I have learned many techniques - some of which are devised by Lucy herself, and not found in books - and I have learned to produce work finished to a professional standard. It’s a nice touch that Lucy later sends a set of photographs of work-in-progress, as well as the finished pieces; that’s a helpful reference to the techniques used. The days have been fun, with lots of tea and inspiration!"
