Great courses... silversmithing and silver clay. I had a wonderful time and learned loads! Lovely lunch and afternoon tea.
Silver clay course - I cannot recommend Yolanda highly enough, both as a teacher and a host.
She provided the perfect welcoming environment in which to learn, the whole day was relaxing informative and fun.
I enjoyed every moment, including the delicious lunch and afternoon tea,
What a wonderful way to spend a day - I will be back!
I really enjoyed this course. Michelle is really friendly and explains all the techniques really well. As it is a one to one course I was able to get an overview of all the different techniques and then focus on the one I wanted to use on my piece of furniture. I’m looking forward to using what I’ve learnt. Thank you Michelle for a lovely day and fabulous coffee! Highly recommended.
A small group of us attended the silver clay workshop. We all had our own equipment and tools. The studio is very light, airy and very comfortable. Yolanda and John quickly put us at ease. There was a plentiful supply of tea/coffee or cold drinks. We had a fabulous lunch and later in the day we had afternoon tea. All the materials we required were included in the price as was the lunch. Yolanda is an excellent tutor. She is patient and her instructions are clear And encouraging. There was plenty of one to one tuition as and when required. We all had a fabulous time and feel the cost of the course was very good value. We will be back to do another course. In view of the size of the studio we were able to maintain social distancing. We were each supplied with a mask and a bottle of sanitiser which we were encouraged to use.
Excellent course, excellent tuition, excellent day. Thank you
Well run course where we made a huge amount of chocolate gifts. Key skills were truffle making, tempering chocolate to make a chocolate box, bars and baubles! All then packaged ready for gift presentation.
Lovely lunch and plenty of tea etc during the day and an afternoon tea at the end.
We would highly recommend this course and it is excellent value for money.
What a fantastic day. From the moment we arrived Yolanda and John made us very welcome and within minutes we had a cuppa! Always a good start to any experience. Yolanda made us feel at ease in their amazing studio, talking us through each stage in the production of our silver master pieces.
Lunch was provided by John and that was epic. So much choice and such full bellies. (It didn't stop there......we also had afternoon tea!). Thank you to both Yolanda and John for an amazing day that will stay in my memory forever and for having aircon! Love my pendant and shall wear it with pride. What a lovely way to spend our wedding anniversary.xx
Absolutely loved every second of this course! Attended today with my Mum and made to feel so very welcome and at home, Yolanda and John are wonderful people and I am so so pleased with our creations today! Cannot wait to return; thank you :)
Yolanda and John instantly provide a very warm and friendly atmosphere. Yolanda is an excellent teacher giving clear explanations, expert help and advice when needed and with full encouragement and support to try everything yourself. Everything was included, even the superb lunch and tea - and I went home with beautiful, unique silver pieces, hand crafted by me!
A magical day!
An excellent course.
There was great variety - we got to try many different crafts. We had very enthusiastic help. The course is amazing value for money because apart from the tools and materials we had lots of drinks, cake, biscuits and lunch.
This is a very laid back course with a friendly atmosphere.
I enjoyed the personal, friendly attention. The tuition was excellent.
Very good teaching in a friendly and sociable environment. Good provision of food/meals. Useful information and demonstrations of painting and finishing techniques.
I thoroughly enjoyed the course and loved everything abut it.
I enjoyed learning a new skill in lovely friendly surroundings.
I liked the relaxed approach and we covered a wide range of techniques. I loved all of it!
Had a very good day with very nice people. Thank you. There was plenty of tea and coffee and then lunch with tea and cakes in the afternoon.
I really enjoyed the day and learned a lot. An excellent day's work.
An excellent course that I really enjoyed.
