I learnt a lot in my stage 1 class and really enjoyed having a small class so that we could get plenty of help from Philip. It was a lot of fun and I was happy with what we made :)

I started with the Stacker Rings class back in 2020 and loved it. I have now completed the Jewellery Making Skills Stage 1-3 and am looking forward to starting Stage 4 in 2 weeks. Philip is a great teacher; knowledgable, helpful and extremely patient, helping students of all skill levels. The classes are run very well, and Robyn is excellent with the scheduling; she has been very flexible when I have been unable to attend classes due to work commitments, always managing to squeeze me in on another class so I don't miss out on any learning. The classes themselevs are full of creative and like minded students and the are the highlight of my week.

I signed up for the Stage 1 classes with no prior experience in jewellery making and wow! The course totally exceeded my expectations! Phillip was so relaxed and encouraging, giving very clear instructions and demonstrations. Being able to sit at my own work bench and use all the equipment made me feel like a trusted expert rather than a nervous beginner. I learnt so much and had ample opportunity to practice the skills. When I look at the pieces I made, I find it hard to believe I was the creator! I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to be guided by such a master of his craft. Thank you Phillip, for such a memorable experience that has sparked a new interest for my spare time. 😊
