"I had wanted to learn how to make jewelry for some time, but was unsure of my ability to execute a piece that I would be pleased with. From the outset contacting Rosie she was very patient, listening to my creative ideas and advising sensibly what she thought was achievable as a first project, as well as what was not. Eventually we agreed on me making a Triple Hare brooch/pendant in silver, which i drew out a design for. Rosie's expertise instilled confidence in me to give it a go and i learned several differing techniques in the process, such as sawing, filing, beveling, punching, soldering and polishing. For a first piece, it may have been a little over ambitious, but Rosie was generous with her time and knowledge. I found the whole process fascinating and am delighted with my finished piece, which i will treasure. I hope to do many more days under Rosie's guidance, exploring more creative ideas, techniques and finishes.
If you are considering a course with Rosie, I highly recommend her, with friends or alone, there is so much to learn and its always a joy to get your creative flow going with something amazing to take home at the end of it all. The workshop is in a beautiful area of the Suffolk countryside too, lots of ancient trees around it and good energy lines flowing through it. Cannot recommend it all highly enough. Thank you Rosie!"
