A nice little course to get started with making wire rings.
Clear instruction and demonstration throughout.
Good support and guidance given.
Lovely venue to learn in and four handmade rings to wear as the result.

Another enjoyable course with lovely wearable jewellery to come away with. I felt honoured that you offered such large pieces of sea glass from your own collection.
Thank you for sharing your lovely sea glass finds and your skills and experience.

I had a lovely morning learning the skill of how to make some silver textured earrings and necklace.

Lindsay could not have been more helpful. I would definitely recommend anyone to attend one of her workshops.

I am hoping to attend another of her workshops in the future.
