Helen Drye runs Silver and Stone Jewellery School based near York, UK.
She started making silver jewellery 10 years ago and set up her business 8 years ago. Her classes are relaxed and fun, and focus on taking home a beautiful piece of jewellery at the end of the day.
This was the first of Helen's courses I attended, and it was thoroughly enjoyable.
I have attended 2 of Helen's taster courses and made pendants I wear regularly, she is a brilliant teacher, walking you through the processes step by step, with lots of encouragement. I've enjoyed them so much I have now booked onto her advanced pendant course in September.
I have attended Helen's taster course. I thoroughly enjoyed it!
The setting was wonderful; quiet and peaceful, and Helen provided refreshments in the sessions. There were other people on the course which was lovely as we had chance to chat whilst still getting personalised tuition. Helen guided me through each step, from design to finished, polished, product.
I chose to make a pendant which I love and wear often. I had such a good time I've been to additional workshop events.
I can't recommend Helen's PMC taster session enough.
Her studio is spacious, comfortable and very well equipped.
She provides an individual segment of clay and numerous tools & accessories to create your piece of jewellery.
Helen talks you the processes very clearly and leaves the creativity to you but is always happy to give advice and shares ideas if you are feeling an artistic block.
I attended a session where met I some lovely ladies and it was a really enjoyable way to spend an afternoon.
I made a leaf pendant for my sister-in-law's birthday and she loved it!
Will be booking another course very soon!
