Jamie reviewed: 'Make a silver ring' jewellery taster workshop - Somerset

"This was a great 2 and half hours which ended with us walking away with our own handmade rings. We went through the whole process from start to finish and with Roderick's guidance it was totally stress free and very satisfying. I liked it so much I've ordered some tools to have a go at home 👍"

Roderick Vere responded:

"Wonderful to meet you Jamie. And a real pleasure to work with you too! Very much looking forward to seeing what new things you rustle up. Best wishes and stay in touch! Rod"

Annie Evans reviewed: 'Make a silver ring' jewellery taster workshop - Somerset

"A great session with really good and clear instruction given. The session was with four learners and Rod was able to share his time and give equal attention to all of us. I picked up so much and he made it easy to learn with his enthusiasm and skill. I would recommend this and am planning to return for more sessions in the future. Frome is a great place to visit and there are several hotels within walking distance of the studio. I'm inspired and looking forward to visiting again! Thanks Rod! "

Roderick Vere responded:

"The pleasure was all mine Annie! Glad you both enjoyed yourself. Thanks for booking on and hope you enjoyed your biscuits and wine back at the hotel! Take care and keep on making, Rod"
