Thank you for an amazing day. You are so lovely and patient. Laura and I both thoroughly enjoyed our day. We would love to do it again. We love our rings, something we will both treasure. Thank you. Maureen and Laura.

Response from Simply Amazing Jewellery School:

And thank you too, I was most impressed by your work, Laura was a natural (young people have no fears!) but you were the rock.
I would love you to return so please keep your eye on the group platform, thank you for coming along with Laura, it was lovely to meet you both - great teamwork x

A really enjoyable day and amazing how much progress I made in just one day, having never handled jewellery-making tools before and attempting lots of new techniques - all achieved with Viv's help, useful information and encouragement to try things by myself. I'm delighted with my rings...not perfect but uniquely mine, and all the more precious because of that! Thanks Viv

Response from Simply Amazing Jewellery School:

Thank you Sara! It is amazing to see complete beginners develop confidence with each challenge met.
You have done really well to achieve so much, you have a lot to be proud of. Thank you for coming, you and your sister made a great team x

We squeezed a lot into one day and learnt a lot, Viv was very patient with us. Thanks again, I would really recommend to anyone looking to learn some new skills 👍🏻

I noted that you now understood my separating into two workshops - your friend wanted so much more, I hope she was happy with her extra rings - it was quite an exhausting day!

I never thought I'd end up with six rings in one day! You get your own set of tools to use on the day in a bright and airy room, Viv was very knowledgeable and helpful, I'd definitely look out for more workshops with Viv.

Response from Simply Amazing Jewellery School:

Gina! Thank you for this lovely review, it is really thoughtful of you and very much appreciated. I loved your tin sculptures, they were fabulous. I hope you decide to join me on another workshop soon x

Really great day - Viv was so informative and we learnt so much.
I produced 5 rings and I am really happy with how they turned out, I was a complete novice so definitely recommend to anyone wanting to give it a try

Such a fantastic day!
Viv was brilliant, talking us through the tools and materials, then guiding us through each step to create each ring.
Her guidance, warmth and knowledge were amazing! Any questions we had, Viv would happily answer and also advise, nothing was too much!
Lovely refreshments and a welcoming atmosphere.
I would highly recommend this workshop, and will happily attend again to refresh my new skills.

Response from Simply Amazing Jewellery School:

This was a great day - it really is about what we all bring to the table - thank you so much Kate, for this very lovely feedback, I appreciate that you made time to do so. And yes, I would highly recommend doing the same again - the journey becomes an adventure!

A fabulous day in which I learnt so much and amazed myself by the super copper and silver rings I made. It was all done in a super safe environment with all the health and safety rules followed. Viv was an extremely knowledgeable, encouraging, enthusiastic, creative and inspiring teacher and I’ve come away wanting to do and learn more silversmithing which is just what you want from a good craft course.

Response from Simply Amazing Jewellery School:

Wow! That was amazing!
Thank you so much! I feel really proud about my achievements which is not what this is supposed to be about! I love my job and this is the reason - you, and others like you, make my day with your input, your determination and your achievements. You were complete beginners, like most of the people who attend my workshops, you take the opportunity and run with it, finding solutions to the difficulties you share and helping each other to success.
Faith restored.

Response from Simply Amazing Jewellery School:

Thank you for this very thoughtful response, I am aware the first half of the workshop is a huge learning curve and worry there won't be enough time to just enjoy; but to see complete beginners achieve so much, is extremely gratifying, I am not surprised you are proud of yourself.
Loved your last comment - I should make it a booking condition! The chart is brilliant - I'll be using it from now on, thank you x

After waiting for nearly a year to be able to do this course bought as a gift for Christmas it was certainly worth the wait and a lovely activity to do on a Saturday. Lovely to learn some new skills and meet other like minded people on the course. My sister and I had a great day and have a great set of rings to show for it. Viv was a great teacher and communicated very well with us. I would definitely recommend..Thanks again!

Response from Simply Amazing Jewellery School:

Libby, thank you for coming, it was lovely to finally meet the two of you - I loved how you all worked so well together and helped each other through difficulties.

Excellent course, delivered by a teacher whose knowledge and enthusiasm shines through, as you learn through creating your own designs ready for casting. I thoroughly enjoyed the day and am now slightly obsessed with wax carving!
