Teresa does fantastic workshops to learn crafts, particularly warm glass and enamelling. I did a full day workshop to learn to make enamel bowls, and it was probably the best crafting day I've done.
We first made some small plaques, firing the powdered enamel in layers onto a copper blank, so I could learn to use stencils and different types of materials, including stringers, flakes and millefiore. Then I learnt to make my bowl, building up the layers on a copper blank until it was a glorious shiny peacock texture with blues and greens and golds shining through.
I'd completely recommend checking out the workshops on offer, as Teresa was a great teacher, the quality of the work produced looked way more professional than I expected, and I came away really enthused about enamelling.
She also made soup for lunch, carefully catering to everyone's needs, along with plenty of refills of tea. With the materials included, that made it amazing value for money, because I came away with three items and a new set of skills, having had a very enjoyable day.

I had an enamelling project in mind and although I was a complete beginner Teresa explained what we had to do and helped me with each stage from preparing the copper pieces through to the enamelling process. Excellent help and tuition and am happy to recommend her to anyone wanting to learn or have a go at the enamelling process.

I arranged this experience with my 2 sisters, one is very crafty and creative and the other has never crafted before. Teresa was a fantastic teacher, very encouraging and knowledgeable. We spent a lovely morning at the studio, the choice of items to make was brilliant and as a result we made 3 completely unique items. I will definitely be returning to learn more skills, I would highly recommend, thank you Teresa.

My sister and I had a brilliant time at Teresa's Enamel Workshop yesterday. We were beginners and were given really clear instructions and chose to make enamelled pictures. Teresa is an excellent teacher and kindly allowed us extra time to finish the pictures so that we didn't feel rushed and we are delighted with the results. Thank you for a fantastic experience. I would really recommend this workshop.

I recently did the two hour workshop with Teresa, with my mum and sister and we all thoroughly enjoyed it and we were thrilled with what we made. Teresa made it very relaxed and enjoyable and was very patient. I have tried many workshops and I think this was the most enjoyable and relaxing so far. Even if you aren't particularly arty, you can still come away with a lovely piece you can be proud of. A great introductory class and would definitely do again.

My friend and I spent the morning with Teresa two weeks ago. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole creative experience, including Teresa's relaxed, but expert, approach. As a total novice I felt inspired by what I could create, - and in a relatively short space of time ( just over 2 hours). Teresa was so encouraging of our own ideas, but readily gave advice on designs if we wanted this. We were equally thrilled by the pendants we each produced - which have attracted many positive comments from friends and family. Thank you so much Teresa for a wonderful morning, we will definitely be returning for another treat of an experience.

Brought my friend Julia for this session and we were both incredibly pleased with the jewellery we made. Teresa was a lovely teacher who took us through all the steps in a relaxed, fun atmosphere. Overjoyed with the session, thank you!

I had a fantastic time on this enamelling course with friends. Our tutor Teresa was patient, helpful and very informative. I achieved more than I had imagined as a beginner and came away with a beautiful pendant.
The course is great value! I’ll definitely be going back to Lappelli Craft Studio for more enamelling.

I have just attended a fantastic enamelling course with a lady called Teresa . I am not very artistic but she was so patient and made sure I was able to produce a fabulous pair of ear rings. I lost one of the pieces and it was not a problem as Teresa was able to help make another one .
The people on the course were very friendly and we were able to support each other in a very friendly and supportive environment . I will definitely come back for more

Had a fantastic time at the session. Teresa was incredibly patient and very knowledgeable. Extremely pleased with the work I produced considering I have no artistic flair. Would definitely recommend this course and will be booking a future session. Thank you for the inspiration.

Fantastic taster session yesterday with Teresa: I decided to have a go as I knew nothing about enamelling previously, now I think I'm hooked! Teresa was very knowledgeable, friendly, and patient, which made the experience even better. I now have a unique dragonfly pendant to show off! Can't recommend this session and Teresa enough :)

I have attempted to make some amateur jewellery for myself in the past, and this course really helped me to improve my knowledge and skills! There is a lovely atmosphere in the Lappelli Studio due to the wonderful teacher, Teresa, who was very friendly and patient as I clumsily scattered beads all over the table!! Thank you Teresa!
