Absolutely brilliant. Such an enjoyable day and it was so satisfying. Best day ever and I will be heartily recommending this day to everyone I know. I learned so much - Annamarie was great and I love the jewellery I made. Fabulous company too!
I booked onto this workshop as I've been interested in wire wrapping for a while and have done some very basic pieces. Annamarie was wonderful, and so talented with wire - she worked with me to improve my skills. I learnt new weaves but what was really great was the amount of tips I got which make it so much clearer and easier. I loved it. I booked it on my own but met others who were lovely and we had a good laugh while making a really lovely piece of jewellery. Thank you for a great time and thank you for your patience. You'll see me on another workshop soon!!
I met Annamarie last year at an event in the Midlands and I have a piece of jewellery handmade by her. I know that she combines traditional silversmithing and metal clay to make a lot of her pieces. This is what I wanted to try. So this week I spent a day with her, tailor made for me to have a go at both basic silversmithing and metal clay. It was a really good day - I learned so much. Annamarie gave me lots of pointers about what to have a go at on my own as a start and I will go back to her studio to learn more. She worked at my pace but pushed me a bit too when I was hesitant to try things. Would definitely recommend.
Really enjoyed it. Annamarie is really welcoming, really talented, really laid back and happy to share her knowledge. I made a pendant for my sister and now I want to make one for myself. I've been on courses before where they offer what it says on the tin but don't offer any other information - like you're going to become competition or something. This lady gave me all the information I need, including a basic tools list, to get going at home. I wish now I'd booked the full day but I'm going to practice and then go back for some more input. Chocolate covered ginger biscuits were a hit too!! Thanks for a really interesting workshop - and thatn's for being so open.
What an amazing day - and such fun too. Annamarie provided a workshop that was so packed and informative and yet so relaxed & easy going. I had no experience of wire work but have left with a lovely amethyst stone captured in wire. Me and my friend had a great time - what a lovely birthday present. True to her promise - there was plenty of tea and biscuits - and a really warm welcome. I'd recommend this, no problem and we'll be back to do the silver clay workshop too. Thank you for a great day.
This has been a complete shock. It was bought as a gift for me and I'd never have thought of buying it for myself as I didn't really know anything about metal clay - but it is amazing. It's magical the way it is silver when fired and I'm now hooked. This lady is super clever with the clay - her work is amazing but most of us on the day were new to the clay and she was fab - so generous with her information and patience and I can't believe I left with a pendant and earrings to match - which I'm wearing right now! I travelled a bit of a way but I definitely plan to come back - hopefully for a one to one session. Thank you for a really great day......what a fab gift it turned out to be.
