Jon reviewed: Wax Carving for Jewellery Making - One Day Workshop - In Person, In London

"Signed up for this course as I really wanted to design and make my own ring - as a complete beginner the course was brilliant - enough time to go through each stage of the process thoroughly and to really craft your carving. Penny was great at offering advice and techniques to achieve YOUR design. The follow up information for casting and polishing was equally as thorough and really pleased with the ring I designed in the session and the other two I have made since!!"

Penny Akester Jewellery responded:

"Hi Jon - so glad you had a good day - your rings have come out great - well done on your hard work!"
