From start to finish Ann made this an amazing afternoon of craft. The rings themselves are really lovely and I am so happy with them. I would highly recommend this to anyone, it is a thoroughly delightful course!

2nd workshop with Anne, previously made earrings. The finished rings are amazing I am so pleased with them, none of it would be possible without great guidance! Hopefully will be going to another workshop soon.

Response from WyeMade:Thank you Julia and Tracey. I’m looking forward to the next workshop.
I’m really not very creative but always wanted to try my hand at making jewellery. It was such an enjoyable workshop with a highly skilled and patient teacher.

Spent a lovely afternoon, with my friends, making earrings. Ann was friendly and relaxed but very knowledgeable and excellent at explaining exactly what needed to be done. The four of us all chose to make very different styles and designs but the results were equally impressive. Thank you Ann.

Absolutely fantastic from start to finish. Ann is a great teacher and an expert with jewellery. My partner and I are already planning our next visit.

Response from WyeMade:Thank you Jake and Emma, it was a pleasure to guide you both through the process and I look forward to a further workshop with you both. I will be posting some photos tomorrow on my Instagram account.
Myself and husband have just made stacking rings with Ann who was informative and patient and talked us all the way through the process.Which made it a very enjoyable experience and we came away with our rings. Would highly recommend trying it.

Recently contacted Ann Skehel regarding stone setting and arranged two 1 to 1 training sessions on tube and flush stone setting. Ann was an excellent tutor and I learned a great deal from my workshops! She is patient and knowledgable and I really enjoyed the sessions! I would highly recommend Ann should you be looking for jewellery tuition!

Response from WyeMade:Thank you Emma it was great fun doing a one to one with you.
Well, the smile on our faces once we’d finished said it all; we are absolutely delighted with our earring workshop and what we came away with having made!
Ann’s workshop is a delight to be in and very well stocked with both findings and tools, (not to mention copious hacksaw blades, although we didn’t beat the record number of broken blades!)
Ann was as hospitable as her well equipped and comfortable workshop. Her down to earth manner helped set us at ease even when we thought we had messed up. Her patience is legendary, persisting with soldering (four times) when our work was being tricky, to ensure we were able to complete and were satisfied with our finished pieces.
I cannot thank Ann enough for a joyful afternoon of creation and will proudly wear my bespoke earrings for years (and compliments) to come!

Response from WyeMade:Thank you Emma your daisy earrings are stunning and well worth getting all the copper ball soldered on even if it took 4 attempts.
Great fun, superb tutor and learning a new skill- a win win!

Response from WyeMade:Thank you Judy you have learned so much and I love the ring you are making at the moment.
Ann provides expert instruction and guidance in a very friendly informal manner. I went with a small group of friends,as part of a girls day out. We had a whale of a time while making some beautiful earrings that we are proud to wear!! Her new studio is cosy and welcoming-tea and cake were provided! I cannot recommend highly enough- we ourselves will return to make matching necklaces!! As if all that wasn’t enough recommendation, it is really good value for money too!

Response from WyeMade:Thank you Lisa I look forward to the next workshop.
We had an amazing time making silver necklaces with Ann. She was brilliant at demonstrating and explaining the techniques clearly so that we were all able to design and create beautiful pieces. I would recommend her to anyone!

Response from WyeMade:Thank you Rebecca I loved your eye pendant.
I had a wonderful afternoon with Ann and I made a lovely ring which I wear often. I had never worked with silver before and with Ann's knowledge, instruction, help and patience I was able to create something to be proud of. A thoroughly enjoyable session.
Lorna Dyer - - #22985
Response from WyeMade:Thanks Lorna, your ring was lovely and it was nice to see your still wearing it.
I have attended two of Ann’s silver jewellery courses and have enjoyed them both very much. On both occasions I’ve been amazed and delighted at how much I achieved, with Ann’s expert and patient guidance. The first course was with a small group of friends from WI, when we made either a lovely silver ring or pretty earrings. The second course was a family affair. Three sisters and husbands had a great time making a mixture of jewellery items and we were all delighted with our efforts. It was particularly good for the husbands to realise how much work went into making an item of jewellery, thus justifying the cost of handmade items!
Ann has a wealth of related equipment and enough of each tool for everyone. No time wasted waiting for a tool to use! Ann’s patience and subject knowledge is second to none and I can therefore highly recommend the workshops she offers.

Response from WyeMade:Thank you Wendy, it was lovely to have an afternoon with your Family. Great fun.
I’d always wanted to learn to make jewellery. I decided to try it out with a one day workshop...... I was amazed at what I achieved, (with the help and guidance of Ann). My friend made earrings and I made a ring!
It inspired me to take a further course, it is now my hobby and I love the creative side. (Plus all my jewellery is bespoke)
Claire Mizen - - #22977
Response from WyeMade:Thank you Claire , I love the fact that you wear your ring every day and have now added a stone to it at evening classes.
I loved the 5 week course! It’s me time in a busy week, a wonderful creative outlet for my soul!!
I have made several gifts for my friends and family. I can solder and set stones now which broadens the choice of jewellery I create.....
Ann is a very patient and knowledgable teacher who is very generous with her expertise and attention to each student.
It’s my oasis in a fast world.
Claire Mizen - - #22978
Response from WyeMade:Thank you Claire, it is great to see what you have achieved over the last few months, and the wonderful feedback you get from your friends when you have made them jewellery.
A very patient teacher, l have learnt so much and enjoyed every minute. And made some nice pieces, usable and wearable.
