My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our morning with Claire, showing us the techniques of making silver clay jewellery. It was brilliant- it’s definitely an excellent workshop to take to establish if this hobby is for you. We came away full of ideas!
Claire was very friendly and put you at ease, the learning atmosphere was very comfortable & well placed.
We would certainly recommend this workshop!

Claire was brilliant. Very welcoming and friendly. I came to the course clueless and came away feeling like I had learnt a lot! She answered every question I had in detail. Claire is fantastic at guiding you with the appropriate resources to enable and ecorage you to do silver clay making independently. Highly recommended her course!

Response from ToDot Handcrafted Goods:Thank you so much Abigail! It was a fun afternoon and I look forward to seeing what you make in the future when you take the plunge! Claire
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.

Response from ToDot Handcrafted Goods:Many thanks Angela! I’m looking forward to seeing what you make in the future!
We have been to Claire twice now on jewellery courses. Once for silver clay and once for resin. Claire is so patient and easy to talk to and ask questions. She takes her time and makes learning a new craft fun. I couldn't recommend her more.

I had a really enjoyable morning making silver clay jewellery with Claire. The course began with Claire explaining all about silver clay, showing some examples and suggesting ideas. Claire then demonstrated the techniques needed before I started on my own project. The time went so quickly and the atmosphere was relaxed. 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.

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.
Margaret & Denise - - #25206
Response from ToDot Handcrafted Goods:It was lovely to meet you both! The textured mats we used were new and had lovely results. The pendants you made were beautifu!
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!

Response from ToDot Handcrafted Goods: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!
I had a great time today at this workshop. Claire was very welcoming and great in describing and showing me the techniques to make my Metal Clay jewellery, so much so that when I left I went online and bought a beginners kit. It was a lovely relaxing morning/afternoon. I made a pendant which I love.
I am looking forward to do another workshop. Plus Daisy the dog was adorable. 😆
Debbie Blenkinsop - - #24773
Response from ToDot Handcrafted Goods:It was a great morning and I look forward to seeing what you make. Thanks for booking and hopefully sort out another workshop soon. Daisy is convinced people are only there to see her !
Having already completed the beginners sliver clay course with Claire I knew I wouldn’t be disappointed!
She was thorough with her instructions and was happy to recap on using silver clay. I was able to make a lovely thumb ring using all silver clay and another two using fine silver wire and the left over clay.
I have had many lovely compliments as I have about all my pieces I have made with Claire on her silver clay courses. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to develop their silver clay products they make.
Emily Kasher-Kell - - #22966
Response from ToDot Handcrafted Goods:It was good to see you again and I’m so pleased you like the rings that you made and that you have been complimented too! Thanks for booking the second workshop with me. Claire
Excellent course in pleasant friendly setting. Claire explained things so well. At the end of the course my friend and i were delighted with our finished pieces. Would definitely recommend this course to anyone who would like to learn a due skill.

I looked on the internet for a short introduction to making silver clay for my daughter and I. This was perfect, we were the only people there and had 100% attention, guidance and support. In 3 hours we made whatever we wanted, and I really like wearing my earrings. Thank you so much Claire for accommodating us at such short notice. A lovely lady, highly recommended by us!
Celia - - #21315
Response from ToDot Handcrafted Goods:I’m glad I could fit you in at short notice and so pleased the earrings turned out so well. Lovely to meet you and your daughter
A really enjoyable day. Claire explained everything with examples. She was welcoming, friendly and informative. We made our designs and Claire helped when things didn’t quite go according to plan so we left with our own designer jewellery. Really pleased.

Response from ToDot Handcrafted Goods:It was great to meet you! So glad you are pleased with your beautiful jewellery !
This morning I attended Claire’s Silver Clay jewellery course at her home studio and I throughly enjoyed my three hour class and my one to one tuition. Claire is very welcoming and explains everything in a very easy to understand manner and I was able to ask as many questions as I wanted. She supplied coffee and cake as well as excellent information on where and what to purchase to continue this craft myself at home. As a complete beginner I was able to produce three items which I am thrilled with. I can highly recommend this course. Thank you Claire.
Val Knowles - - #20966
Response from ToDot Handcrafted Goods:Thank you Val it was nice to meet you and you made a lovely piece of jewellery. Look forward to seeing any further pieces you make at home. Claire
So enjoyed my time learning a new skill with Claire, who shares her knowledge and expertise readily and makes you feel comfortable throughout each process that is involved in silver clay.
I've been wanting to try this for a while now and so glad that i had booked!
Claire explains everything each step of the way and makes you feel able to accomplish something unique to yourself with special meaning.
I had an inkling of what i'd like to make beforehand but since i left my head is buzzing with ideas.
Thanks so much Claire and Daisy Dog for making this such an enjoyable step into the unknown and untried.....left with some really lovely pieces as presents for my nearest and dearest!
This was a Birthday treat for me, the day before the course so thanks again Claire .....

Response from ToDot Handcrafted Goods:It was a great morning thank you for booking the workshop and happy birthday to you too! I hope you send more photos of future makes :-) Claire & Daisy!
As complete beginners Claire explained everything really well which enabled us to make five lovely pieces between us to take away. Claire is patient, knowledgeable and full of ideas and tips which she gladly shares. Attending this has given us the confidence to go it alone. We would recommend a visit to Claires studio for anyone thinking of attempting silver clay work.

Really enjoyed the silver clay workshop. Claire was really knowledgeable and helpful and I’m now really enthusiastic about giving it a go on my own! Can’t wait to get started in the meantime I’m really enjoying wearing the pieces that I made during the workshop.

My mum and I had a lovely morning learning about silver clay and were thrilled with the pieces we made. Claire was very welcoming and we found the class relaxing, informative and really good fun. Something a bit different that I’d booked as a Birthday treat for my mum but definitely something we’ll carry on now we’ve got the basics! Thank you Claire 😄
