Craig reviewed: Silverclay beginners jewellery workshop in Newcastle upon Tyne

"I booked this course with Claire as a gift for my partner who makes jewellery with sea glass and other materials. After the course she was absolutely buzzing with ideas and very excited to develop her Silverclay skills. The course delivered real practical insights and she came home with 2 amazing quality worked examples. My partner also came away with a complete shopping list of tools and a full method of how to get started as a beginner with Silverclay and pitfalls to avoid. It will certainly save a lot of time and effort in practice materials having invested in expert tuition. She had a great time and was very happy. Would definitely recommend as a gift to someone interested in jewellery making."

ToDot Handcrafted Goods responded:

" Thank you Craig for your review and I’m so pleased Jolanta enjoyed the workshop!"

Lynn Rae reviewed: Silverclay beginners jewellery workshop in Newcastle upon Tyne

"This was a super course. Claire was beautifully organised and everything was prepared and ready. She had lots of lovely examples of jewellery and lots of resources which I could use. Everything was clearly demonstrated and she was great at giving guidance and encouragement to try things. She gave explanations and tips at every stage and I felt I was learning something. Claire was extremely patient and nothing was too much trouble. The time went quickly and I left with a beautiful pair of earrings (that were just me!) and a tiny charm which I am going to gift. I would highly recommend this course. Thank you very much indeed, Claire."

Sue Lambert reviewed: Silverclay beginners jewellery workshop in Newcastle upon Tyne

"I spent a lovely afternoon exploring Silver Clay, Claire explained the properties of the mixture and the process very clearly. The time went so quickly, I really enjoyed the practical side and it was great to do every bit of the process. I did managed to damage one of my pieces and Claire showed her expertise by fixing it. She showed me what she was doing and it was as good as new when she had finished. Claire is absolutely fab, friendly and very knowledgeable, I would recommend this class to anyone who loves to craft and / or wants to have a 'go' at something inspiring."

Amy Trainor reviewed: Silverclay beginners jewellery workshop in Newcastle upon Tyne

"I had an absolutely fantastic day at Claire's silver clay making workshop. I made three pieces of silver jewellery in the space of three hours! Claire was really helpful and very knowledgeable, offering me advice and support along the way but also encouraging my own ideas allowing me to experiment with the tools and techniques. The workshop surroundings are very comfortable and welcoming and I was provided with refreshments throughout the day. Claire also provided me with lots of info and useful links to silver clay websites so I now know the best places to go to buy the tools needed to do silver clay making at home. I will definitely be recommending to workshop to my friends and family. Thanks very much Claire for a great day! I had a ball!"

" Lovely to meet you Amy! You made some great pieces of jewellery. Look forward to seeing further pieces that you will make !"

angela kelly reviewed: Resin Christmas Bauble Craft Workshop

"Superb course run by Claire learning how to use resin to make lots of different items - I chose baubles. Brilliant set up where Claire talks you through what to do and then you make your own baubles. Printouts provided by Claire to take away to remind you what to do/not to do. Really nice relaxed set up with a lovely cup of coffee and lots of friendly chat. Claire is very patient and is really good at giving tips and advice to you. I've followed up with Claire after the course with lots of 'how do I' type of questions and she's answered them really quickly. I'd really recommend this course if you're looking to start working with resin. I'll definitely be keeping an eye out for any further courses by Claire. Thanks Claire."

ToDot Handcrafted Goods responded:

" Many thanks Angela! I’m looking forward to seeing what you make in the future!"

I went away brimming with ideas for my next project, so I will be back! Many thanks."

"Had a lovely afternoon with Claire learning the basics of silverclay jewellery. I contacted Claire through Craft Courses and she kindly arranged a course at short notice that fitted with my availability. Claire is friendly, informative and very helpful. She explained all aspects clearly and I managed to make some lovely pieces with Claire's guidance. I would thoroughly recommend Claire's course to everyone. Claire sent me away with helpful literature and an offer to contact her should I have any questions if I do more silverclay work at home. Thanks again Claire."

Margaret & Denise reviewed: Silverclay beginners jewellery workshop in Newcastle upon Tyne

"We did this as a team building event from work. As a team of two we struggled to find something that we could do together until I found Claire's silver clay workshops. As the only ones there, we received Claire's full attention, guidance and support. Claire was very welcoming and explained each step, ensuring we understood what we needed to do. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and as complete beginners it was great to leave with pieces of jewellery we had made ourselves. I have worn my lovely pendant. Thanks for a great morning Claire."

ToDot Handcrafted Goods responded:

" It was lovely to meet you both! The textured mats we used were new and had lovely results. The pendants you made were beautifu!"

Susan Donald reviewed: Silverclay beginners jewellery workshop in Newcastle upon Tyne

"I really enjoyed the course with Claire I attended recently, as my teenage son was ill and off school he came along too! Claire was very thorough with her explanations and taught, making her own piece alongside ours as an example. We produced our own customised pieces, using a variety of techniques, Claire was very knowledgeable and explained the whys and what to look our for along the way, I feel inspired to try this at home and confident I could. It was interesting also to learn of her experiences and interest in other craft mediums and jewellery making too - her workshop is like an Aladdins cave!"

ToDot Handcrafted Goods responded:

" Thank you for your lovely review Susan it was good to meet you and your son. I look forward to arranging further workshops with you!"
