My partner and I attended the Silver clay beginners course and it was outstanding. We had a fantastic day and loved the pieces we made. Lori was an excellent teacher and extremely knowledgeable. We would highly recommend this course with Lori. In addition, there were substantial measures put in place to ensure Lori could run the workshop for us whilst complying with COVID-19 guidance. Thanks for a fab day Lori!
Response from LR Silver Jewellery:Hi Christine. Thanks for such a lovely review. I’m glad you enjoyed your day, you both made some lovely pieces 😊
Last week I joined Lori in her workshop for the 2 day beginners silver clay course. I became truly immersed, and the time flew by. I loved the pieces that I made, and the guidance and teaching from Lori was super. Lots of tea and cake... and a really relaxing and welcoming atmosphere.. It's magic when your creations start to shine! Can highly recommend.
I have just spent a wonderful 2 days on Lori's beginners silver clay course. Having never done jewellery making before I had no expectations of being able to make anything I would be proud of but how wrong I was. Lori is very patient and helpful, explains all the processes clearly and gives you confidence.
Her workshop is very well equipped and organised and Lori times it all so well that you never feel rushed at any stage. At the end of the course I left with pieces I am delighted with and had met some other lovely like minded ladies who were equally as happy with their efforts. I intend to go back and do further courses with Lori and I would urge anyone who is thinking about giving this a try to go to Lori - I can highly recommend her.
Just loved this workshop, I came away with 2 gorgeous pendants. Lori was an excellent and patient teacher, I learnt so much in just 3 hours. I would highly recommend this workshop to anyone interested in this gorgeous medium. Thank you also for the coffee's and biscuits. I'll definitely be back for another workshop :)
Response from LR Silver Jewellery:Hi Rosie. Thank you for the lovey review, I'm glad you enjoyed the course, you made some lovely pieces. Thanks. Lori
I had the pleasure of doing this course with Lori two weeks ago. She is a wonderful teacher who seems to know when to give a little advice, and when to let a student get on with it. Lori is a fabulous person to spend time with, the three days flew by. I learned so much from her and got alot of confidence in myself from doing the course.
Loris attention to detail is amazing, from the information she sent before I got there, to her preparation of the work space and projects, to her notes and advice regarding each project.
I truely enjoyed doing the course and would recommend any of Loris courses to be a fun, creative experience.
This was a great experience tailored to us as individuals. I have a little experience in jewellery making but none in pmc and I felt I learned a lot and would thoroughly recommend the course to both complete beginners and those wanting to extend their skills.
I felt we had a generous allocation of materials to work with and we produced pieces to feel good about!
I had two very good productive days with Lori in her workshop and am extremely pleased with the pieces I made. Lori patiently took me through each stage and taught me lots of new skills. The first day was quite intense (when all the groundwork was done) but the second day was when all the magic happened! I was made to feel at home in Lori's well equipped workshop and look forward to returning again for another course in the future.
This was an excellent course, ideal for the novice. Lori is an superb and very patient teacher and the other ladies in the group made the whole experience perfect. I would highly recommend to anyone to take this course. I am over the moon with all my pieces of jewellery I made.
Thank you Lori.
An amazing experience ........ had a fab time and made some beautiful pieces...I still can't believe I made them !!! Lori is a lovely inspiring lady and an excellent teacher, very patient and explained the different stages simply and in full detail, I didn't want the morning to end ..... I cant wait to get back and do the 2 day course.
I really enjoyed my beginners course with Lori and made some beautiful jewellery in the process, I would recommend this course to anyone who is interested in making their own pieces so much so that I have ordered my starter kit, thanks again
Fabulous morning on Lori Ridgway's half day silver clay course. Lori is a lovely lady and an excellent teacher. Her instructions were clear and easy to follow, she is very helpful and happy to answer questions. I thoroughly enjoyed my morning and made several beautiful items of jewellry. I'm looking forward to doing Lori's 2 day course next.
Had an absolutely wonderful experience working with Silver Clay. I hadn't ever worked with this product before so everything was new. I made a beautiful pendant and Lori supplied us with a silver chain from which to hang it. Take a look on my Facebook page. I also made a silver charm of a flower that reminded me of the Eidelweiss flower. Lori has volunteered to solder it to my very old charm bracelet for me.
Would I recommend the course? Most certainly.
Am I interested in taking another course with Lori? You bet I am.
All in all a wonderful time with loads of instruction and information to take it to another level.
Thank you Lori. Look forward to more of your teaching in the future.
I did enjoy this workshop with a Lori and my friend who invited me. The course itself was informative and well run. We certainly didn’t get homemade flapjacks. In fact we had to ask for a biscuit and they were ones that had gone soft in a tin. We were offered plenty of drinks. I was very pleased with my jewellery pieces but a bit disappointed when I got home and found it could bend easily. My friend’s did the same. I contacted Lori who suggested hitting it gently with a hammer to toughen it up but also thought it might be the clay.
Response from LR Silver Jewellery:Hi Helen
Lori was a great teacher, very patient and knowledgeable.
I had a great time and look forward to the next course!
We had a brilliant day making a necklace from a leaf, Lori is very welcoming and lovely, she is a fab teacher and makes beautiful jewellery. A relaxing few hours producing a unique special piece, will definitely do another workshop :-)
The course was extremely informative and I came away with many new skills.
Lori is a wonderful teacher and her depth of knowledge is amazing.
Thank you Lori for everything
