Katharine reviewed: Silver Clay Beginners Workshop

"I had a fantastic day with Marianne, she was friendly, bubbly and supportive throughout the day. Based from her (crafters heaven) workshop, she calmly walked through every step of the process in detail encouraging my ideas to evolve and I left with three pieces of jewellery which I actually will (and have) worn! I've recommended the course to many of my friends and can't wait to get my hands on more silver clay. Thank you Marianne!"

Grey Clouds & Silver Linings responded:

" Thank you, Kat. It was a lovely day of making and you did so well, making some very beautiful pieces of jewellery. I'm so glad you're enjoying wearing them and I look forward to seeing where you go with silver clay journey."

Bob Clarke reviewed: Nature Captured in Silver Clay

"Had a fabulous day making three fine-silver pendants. Our instructor, Marianne, is very knowledgeable, and has a lovely, relaxed teaching style. I’d never made jewellery of any kind before, and didn’t expect to create anything of beauty, yet my finished items turned out well, and would not have looked out of place in any craft shop. Silver clay is an incredible material, and I was amazed how easy it is to work with. I have absolutely no hesitation recommending this course, which was both enjoyable and good value for money."

Grey Clouds & Silver Linings responded:

" Thank you, Bob, I’m so glad you enjoyed your day. I loved the pieces you made, well done to you and I look forward to seeing what you do in the future."

Jayne Hughes reviewed: Silver Clay Beginners Workshop

"An excellent day with a great patient instructor. Marianne is well prepared, there are lots of choices of styles and pieces you can make. I managed to make 4 pieces with her guidance. It is a technique you can also do at home, so a really valuable course that is easy for all to do. I really can recommend it and will be back. Thank you for a great day. Jayne Hughes"

SIWAN HILL reviewed: Silver Clay Beginners Workshop

"This was an excellent day of learning so many things about this innovative material, I made a pendant and earrings during the day which I am very happy with. They will be a gift for my daughter in law. Marianne was very patient but taught us so much during the day. We were given plenty of information about the tools and equipment needed to continue using silver clay in the future and information about where to purchase silver clay. We were also taught how to work with the clay and make different items, how to fire the clay with 3 different methods, how to polish and finish our items. It was a long and tiring day but extremely fulfilling. Thanks so much Marianne."

Grey Clouds & Silver Linings responded:

" Thank you Siwan, I’m glad you enjoyed your day, you made a lovely set of jewellery. I hope you have been inspired to carry on with your silver clay journey and I look forward to seeing where it takes you."

Helen Petrie reviewed: Silver Clay Beginners Workshop

"Fab! Fab! Fab! I really cannot rate this course any higher. I was so excited to have a go at making silver clay jewellery and was hoping to be pleased with my first attempt, but I have come away with pieces of jewellery that I am so proud of and would be happy to purchase from a shop. Marianne is extremely knowledgeable and helpful, encouraging and patient. She is such a lovely lady, nothing was too much trouble and she was able to give each of us the attention we needed. Her studio is a craft heaven! a very calm environment, I had such a lovely day and can't wait to do more at home. Thank you Marianne"

Linda Saunders reviewed: Silver Clay Beginners Workshop

"I have attended this workshop today and I have arrived home buzzing from the all round experience ...I’m totally hooked. Marianne’s class was so relaxing and informative. She has a wealth of experience in the craft to share and nothing was too much trouble. She showed how to rectify small hitches in our work as we experimented with different techniques. It was a completely lovely day and we all took away some silver pieces to be proud of. I have now arranged a one to one workshop to polish my skills and knowledge. I would highly recommend this beginners workshop."

" Thank you Linda, I'm glad you enjoyed your day and are now a Silver Clay convert. I look forward to seeing where your silver clay journey takes you and working with you in the future."

Liz reviewed: Silver Clay Beginners Workshop

"Silver Clay Jewellery - what can I say? What a dream day. Marianne’s studio feels like a craft haven. She taught us how to make silver clay jewellery and tips and techniques. She has a vast knowledge and nothing was too much effort. She showed us how to fix things when they didn’t go to our design plans and ways of achieving what we wanted to make. Went away with 3 pieces of super jewellery and an excitement for doing more. Couldn't have asked for more. Would definitely recommend."

Kirsty Elliot reviewed: Silver Clay Beginners Workshop

"I would highly recommend this Silver Clay Course. Marianne made me feel at ease from the start, and was very professional. It was a relaxed day, but also very informative and I learnt a lot about the subject. I was very happy with the pieces I made, and the advise given on how to improve my techniques. I made 3 items with the amount of clay provided, and was taught 3 techniques. There was a lot of choice and I was encouraged to use my own choices regards to the wide range of materials, rather than being shown what to do. Great value for money and a very enjoyable day."
