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 anyone wanting to do this course. "

Karen Meins reviewed: Wire wrap a seaglass pendant with Lindsay Forbes; Sedgefield

"I wanted to say a massive thank you to From Loft to Loved for hosting the sea glass pendant workshop on Saturday 27th Apr 24 and an even bigger thank you to Lindsay Forbes for making it such an informative and fun morning. As my first session of this type and also the first time I had been to From Loft to Loved, I have to say the workshop not only inspired me but gave me the confidence to have a go at home. The shop also was a source of great inspiration. Thanks for a fun Saturday morning spent in not only a mindful task but also a productive one. I have already subscribed and bookmarked your websites so I can hear about and keep checking for other workshops. Thanks Karen"

Bench Box responded:

"Thanks for the lovely review Karen, I'll be sure to pass this on to the venue too! Glad we inspired you!"

"Bought this course as a birthday gift for my niece. We (my mam came too) wanted to make a gift she could keep for her 18th birthday. It was a great morning, and the time flew by.

Debs Williams reviewed: Silver Stacking Rings Workshop; with Lindsay Forbes of Laconic; Durham

"What a fabulous, fun experience to do this course with Lindsay. A small group of just 6 people ensured Lindsay was able to share her knowledge and time with us all equally. This was a really great fun thing to do and my friend and I both came away with 3 beautiful silver rings as well as a copper ring which we made first to hone our jewellery- making skills. We will certainly be looking at other courses that Lindsay might arrange in the future. Thanks for a great morning!"

Bench Box responded:

"Thanks for your lovely review Debs, I'm glad you both enjoyed the workshop. I loved the contrasting textures in the rings you made, excellent job! It'd be lovely to see you at a workshop in the near future. "

Katy and Claire reviewed: Silver Stud Earring Duo Workshop with Lindsay Forbes of Laconic - Durham

"Thanks Lindsay - my sister and I thoroughly enjoyed our earring making workshop with you and have both come away with 2 gorgeous pairs of earrings that have already been admired by friends and family! The location was relaxed and inspiring and your knowledge and tuition were excellent. My only other feedback is that we both felt a little rushed towards the end to pattern and polish our second set of earrings (but this may have been that we took too long to decide what style to make!!). We would love to come on another of your workshops in the future. "

Bench Box responded:

"Thanks for your lovely review ladies, I love that your earrings have been receiving lots of attention! They're all gorgeous. Apologies that you felt a bit rushed at the end, sometimes its easy for time to get away a little, room for improvement on my part, thanks again."

Kat Frank reviewed: Silver Stacking Rings Workshop; with Lindsay Forbes of Laconic; Durham

"My daughters brought me this course for my birthday treat this year, I went along with my mum, we had a great time. The shop and gallery were a really nice place with a great atmosphere and the tutor was great, explaining everything really clearly and due to the class size of only six she was able to help everyone at all the stages as they needed it. I haven’t made rings before but I loved it and I am hoping to be able to attend more similar workshops to improve and learn a new skills. And we got tea and cakes!"

Bench Box responded:

"Thanks Kat, I'm so glad you enjoyed the course. Such a fabulous birthday treat!"
