Melissa Flint reviewed: Silver Stacking Rings Workshop; with Lindsay Forbes - Sedgefield

"Such a fun class! Lindsay was incredibly nice, helpful, and she was a great teacher. She encouraged everyone along the way and the finish rings were amazing! Definitely book with a friend(s) as it's more fun to have a socal buddy along the way. "

Bench Box responded:

"Thanks for your lovely review Melissa, glad you enjoyed the workshop. I hope you had a great first experience of soldering too, you made some fab rings!"

Rachel Grace reviewed: Silver Stacking Rings Workshop; with Lindsay Forbes - Sedgefield

"My fiancé and I attended this course and had the best afternoon. We visited as a day date for our anniversary. We genuinely couldn’t have asked for a better way to spend the day. We made beautiful rings to take away and Lindsey was so accommodating. We had a great laugh, and everything was explained in detail. Would 💯 recommend for anyone wanting to do this course. "

Bench Box responded:

"Thanks for your fab review Rachel. It was great having you both, I'm glad you enjoyed your afternoon together, a great way to celebrate your anniversary!"
