An excellent course. It is very intense but relaxed at the same time, you will learn a lot.
Lucy is an excellent teacher and will guide you through all the stages needed to create your pieces, you will be busy for 2 days but will be given a lot of information and guidance.
It has given me the confidence to further develop my own jewellery range....time to create some special pieces!

We had such a fantastic day with Lucy making our wedding rings. She was really patient with us, particularly when I was struggling through with a particularly tricky design and guided us the whole way through.
From someone who was perhaps a bit skeptical about making our rings before hand, I can safely say that this was one of the best decisions we have made.
Thanks for making it such a great day!

What an experience! I had no idea how special it would be to make our rings.
I knew that I wanted bespoke rings, but I didn’t know that the process of making them would be so emotional. Lucy is wonderful. She is such an integral part of the day, her presence and aura make you feel really comfortable and confident.
I felt incredibly close to Dan while we were working, helping each other and making decisions together. You are walked through the process of making the rings in a way that allows you to learn for yourself while making sure that things go to plan. I loved that we got to make a practice ring that we could take home. Our rings have turned out perfectly, we are both over the moon.
I can not recommend making your rings with Lucy enough. Please don’t think twice, it’s an experience that really kicks off the wedding magic.

I was given this course as a Christmas present and wow!
Lucy made everyone feel very welcome and had a lovely style of teaching her craft. She taught us various techniques such as using and threading hacksaws, cutting copper and silver, bending, making stacker rings, pendants, earrings, warming metals to make them malleable, soldering (different types for different adhesions of metals, how to calculate ring sizes prior to making, how to use power tools, sanding techniques, oxidising techniques etc.
To be honest, at times I felt like a kid in a sweet shop as I came away with stacker rings, earrings, pendants, a wider barrel type ring and I made them all myself.
Lucy also provided a lovely lunch on both days.
This course is exceedingly good value for money and makes a wonderful gift.
I now have some skills that I can practice at home and make gifts for other people and myself.
Thanks, Lucy you're a star.

Thoroughly enjoyed this weekend of jewellery making. I had never done it before but was amazed at what I was able to create and produce under Lucy's excellent tuition. The whole setting and environment are a lovely space to learn to make silver jewellery under her diligent patient guidance. Great experience and great value. Thank you

My fiancé and I spent a lovely day making our wedding rings with Lucy earlier this week. We were steadily guided through the process with plenty of opportunity to practice the various techniques before we got to work on the actual rings themselves.
Lucy was a great teacher, explaining how everything worked and giving advice whilst I was being very indecisive about the type of ring I wanted (I’m very happy with my choice!) I found the whole process really interesting ... Lucy makes a mean brownie too!
Couldn’t recommend this workshop enough! we love our rings and had a great day that we’ll remember for a long while.

My fiancée and I made our wedding rings with Lucy this month. We found Lucy from great reviews online, and are so happy we booked her. It was really important to us to ensure the creation of our rings was a very special process, and we couldn’t be happier with how Lucy designed the day. She guided us through the ring making process in a fantastically designed way so you don’t feel daunted, and are able to take ownership of the experience and get creative! At each step she is helpful and patient, and her studio is a calm, relaxing environment that you can curate for the day. This part of our wedding was made even more meaningful by Lucy, and we can’t thank or recommend her enough!

Lucy is an excellent teacher; patient and very knowledgeable. I had a fantastic weekend learning many skills in jewellery making and as a complete novice, I am amazed at what we achieved in just a weekend. I have several beautiful pieces of jewellery to add to my collection, which are so special as I made them myself. Everyone on the course was lovely, the studio was great and the lunch and homemade cakes provided were superb. I'm so pleased I attended this course and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone with an interest in silver jewellery making.

Intensive Beginners' Silver Jewellery weekend:
I had a great weekend making my own silver jewellery in Lucy's studio. I cannot believe how much progress we were able to make in a weekend, I have learnt so many new skills & have come away with some beautiful pieces of jewellery.
Lucy has created a lovely studio environment to learn in - It's bright, well equipped & a really welcoming space.
I cannot recommend this course enough & cannot wait to book onto my next one!

We had the most amazing afternoon in Lucy's workshop making our wedding rings for each other. Lucy gave us fantastic guidance and tuition throughout, and her friendly, welcoming nature made our day even more special. We are so happy with our handmade creations, and had such a wonderful time making them together. Thank you Lucy!

Brilliant course! I had a great time over both days and learnt so much. Lucy is a very good teacher and explained each step clearly whilst still allowing the students scope for creativity. I left feeling confident about what we had achieved and am already looking forward to booking my next course.

We did the "make your own wedding rings" course with Lucy and had the most wonderful day! It was so much fun and will be a memory that we will always cherish dearly. Lucy was super patient and an excellent teacher - our rings came out amazing even though we had zero experience making jewelry. She was also super accommodating to our tight schedule. We definitely recommend her - thank you Lucy!

We had the most amazing day with Lucy making our wedding rings! The idea of making our wedding rings was something that really appealed to us and, despite never having done anything like this before, we both left having made each other rings what we love and are excited about wearing forever (phew!) - but it was honestly all down to Lucy being such a wonderful, patient and kind teacher. She made us feel very welcome and helped us to design and make rings that were perfect for each of us.
Thank you Lucy.

I started with a beginners silversmithing course nearly 2 years ago and I am hooked. Lucy is a brilliant tutor. Calm, patient and with meticulous attention to detail. Her workshop/studio is light and airy and very well equipped. I cannot recommend Lucy and her courses highly enough.

This is my fourth year learning from Lucy. Her courses are thorough, build on skills learned and she makes learning fun in a bright, light, well equipped studio. She is patient and knowledgable and her gentle yet firm approach always ensures the learner feels encouraged and achieves their best results. I can't praise these courses highly enough!

I am on my second 10-week progression course with Lucy and I love it! She has lots great tools in her studio and each student has their own bench space. Lucy works at the pace of each student, so there are times when we are all working on something different. It means you learn from what other people are doing too which is great.
I have also recently completed one of Lucy's one-day course in Flush Setting. It was quite fiddly, but great fun.
If you have never had a go at making jewellery, Lucy is the perfect teacher. Just be warned it's slightly addictive!

We had a great time making our wedding rings!
Excellent step by step instruction throughout and we were able to go at our own pace. We had such a great shared experience learning new skills and are so happy with the result.
It was great to see how the practice rings compared to the real thing when we got them back and can't wait to exchange our rings on our wedding day as now they are even more personal and special to us.
Thank you for a great experience that will we always remember.
