Silversmithing workshop: Cuff Bangles

In-person course
Lydia W - - #36065

Me and my friend attended this course because of great word of mouth and we were not disappointed! I am in love with my cufs and often get asked about them, so it feels great to be able to say I made them myself.
I can't speak highly enough of Nina. Apart from being a great teacher she's also warm and funny and really just puts you at ease.
Time flew, and it's made me want to book on every workshop she offers.
Really excited for 2022. Thank you Nina XX

Wow! This was an amazing course! My daughter and I attended this workshop and I can’t rate it highly enough…Nina is an absolute gem, highly knowledgable and lots of fun. We came away with lots of news skills and 2 beautiful rings as gorgeous reminders of our workshop. We enjoyed it so much, Nina very kindly put together a box of tools for us to make more silver with so we can make our own items. We are very much looking forward to working with Nina again!

What can I say?

I really enjoyed the Stacking Ring Course I came away with a new skill and two beautiful rings, all thanks to Ninas teaching skills. She is warm and welcoming from he minute you meet her and makes the whole experience fun. Just a lovely way to spend an afternoon.

Thank you so much Nina, it was great to finally meet you!

I had such a fab time! Nina is patient, funny and just a breath of fresh air. Nothing is rushed and everything is explained so well you do come out really having learned something. Will definitely be booking with Nina again. Thank you!


Silversmithing workshop: Fidget/Spinner Ring

In-person course
Wendy - - #27134

I have attended 2 of Nina’s workshops making stacking rings and a spinner ring. I have never tried silversmithing before this, Nina was very welcoming, friendly and professional, she explained everything very clearly and demonstrated each process. I really enjoyed both workshops and came away with some lovely pieces of jewellery made my me which makes them special. I would highly recommend making jewellery with Nina. I hope to join in more of Nina’s workshops this year.

Silversmithing workshop: Fidget/Spinner Ring

In-person course
Joe - - #24545

Such a great way to spend an afternoon and so pleased with the fidget ring- as is my wife.
Would definitely recommend. Nina is lovely, patient and a good teacher. No question seemed too much and I even left with a sheet of materials and tools I'd need to start this up as a hobby.
I'll be seeing you soon Nina- looking forward to the private classes


Silversmithing workshop: Cuff Bangles

In-person course
Danielle - - #23719

Having attended the bangle making class I can honestly say I can't wait to join more of Nina's workshops!
She is just lovely. So friendly and truly explains everything and gives any additional information you can think to ask. It's so nice to feel truly supported in a new skill, and aside from coming away with a beautiful bangle (I made it myself hehe!) I feel that I've also come away with a true mentor and friend.
Thank you Nina! x

No experience? - no problem. Even a complete novice such as me can be learning and creating in no time. Take an idea and with patient and knowledgeable instructions you can come away not only with an individual piece of hand crafted jewellerry, but also a new skill learned and a desire to create more.
Would recommend this fun,informative and worthwhile experience to anyone wanting to explore their creative side.
