Silver Ring Stack - 3 rings in a day

In-person course
Lindsay Holden - - #33679

Throughly enjoyable. Rachel takes time to explain the background so you gain an understanding of what and why you are doing a particular technique. Reassurance is given if you go wrong and what can be done to correct it.
Rachel creates a calming and relaxing atmosphere.

Response from Rachel Hearne Jewellery:

Thank you Lindsay it was lovely having you. You have real creative energy and it showed on the day. Your pieces were beautiful and you were a pleasure to teach.

I hope I see you again soon in my new Jewellery School!

Had an excellent time on the 3 rings course, Rachel is a great teacher and always available for help and advice. We all had a lot of fun and leant a huge amount about silver smithing from starting with no knowledge at all. Will definitely be back for more courses in future.

Response from Rachel Hearne Jewellery:

It was great to have you in the class and I am so pleased you enjoyed your self. The 3 rings you made are brilliant, a perfect size and a great finish well done! I hope to see you again soon.

This was my third session with Rachel and each time I have felt that I have achieved making something precious, even though I’m a complete amateur. Rachel explains each stage and describes each process so well. It’s a wonderful feeling having time to get lost in being creative. Thank you Rachel and look forward to the next opportunity to try something new. Xx

Response from Rachel Hearne Jewellery:

It was so good to finally have you back again and to see the obvious progression you are making. You have wonderful creativity and ideas. Thank you for adding to the experience of a great day.

Hope to see you soon :)

I had such a fabulous day, learning a new craft, from an absolutely brilliant teacher, thank you Rachel.
The day was longed for, with the pandemic, and lived up to expectations, after 2 previous workshops with Rachel, her enthusiasm, knowledge and experience are fantastic. I am going to make more with Art clay, I think it may be addictive!!

Response from Rachel Hearne Jewellery:

Thank you Anne it really was lovely to have you back in the classroom again. I was so pleased to see your creativity and enthusiasm your pieces turned out beautiful! Hope to see you again soon :)

The silver clay course was excellent were all the others I have been on. It is a credit to Rachel's skill and style of teaching that people return time and again to her classes, which are informative, well paced and supportive to beginners and experts alike.

I can't tell you how much I was looking forward to this course and.... I was not disappointed. It was FABULOUS. Rachel was her usual calm, warm, nurturing, encouraging self - she is also a 'natural' teacher. Not only did I learn new skills but I got to spend the day with a wonderful group of creative learners and teachers. I cannot recommend highly enough.

I attended the Rolling Mill and Stamping course. Rachel was a great teacher, very knowledgeable, patient and full of ideas and the course was well run. She made sure we all followed the COVID regulations to keep us safe. With her help, I was able to make a lovely pendant which I was very pleased with considering it was my first attempt at jewellery making. I will definitely do another of her courses, just trying to decide which one next!

Response from Rachel Hearne Jewellery:

Thank you Lynne it was a pleasure teaching you and your pendant was a huge success. I’m so pleased you enjoyed it and felt safe.

I’m looking forward to seeing you again.

I have been attending group workshops with Rachel for several years now and I hope to continue doing so. Her knowledge, enthusiasm and patience make her courses a joy to attend. Rachel makes sure that all members of her classes get individual, as well as group, attention and she is able to cover all skill levels in an easy to follow and relaxed style.

Response from Rachel Hearne Jewellery:

Thank you Barbara you are a pleasure to teach. Your continual progression is so exciting to witness and design challenges you have set for yourself are beautiful. I I’m looking forward to what 2020 will bring.

We did the 3 stacked silver ring workshop which was exceptionally well taught and resourced. I was so pleased with the silver rings I produced and got to take home with me. Rachel paced the day perfectly and gave us enough guidance but plenty of time and freedom for creativity. I hope we can book a similar jewellery making event again soon.

Response from Rachel Hearne Jewellery:

Thank you Sarah for that lovely review. It was great to have you and I’m so pleased you enjoyed the workshop.

Thoroughly enjoyable afternoon spent with Rachel, who helped me create my design. Rachel is an excellent tutor and instilled confidence in my abilities. She provides a lovely, comfortable environment in which to work and I would have no hesitation in recommending both her group courses and 1:1 sessions. I most definitely will be booking again. Thanks Rachel! :)

Response from Rachel Hearne Jewellery:

Jan what a pleasure it was to have you. Your project was a great challenge and you did it with a smile on your face. No broken sawblades....that was very impressive! Gorgeous result today -I hope to see you again soon.
