The venue was extremely well equipped. The instruction was well researched, comprehensive, well presented and easy to understand, as were the demonstrations of each step in the manufacturing process. Comprehensive and well researched notes were included in the fee, as were sufficient metals for students to make earrings and a pendant. I was very satisfied and pleased that I was able to make very presentable earrings and a pendant.

This class was wonderful. We learnt how to do an ancient Korean technique of attaching gold to fine silver. Walked away with two pairs of gorgeous earrings! Ruth was so informative and took us through the whole process beginning at rolling the gold to the finish product. Highly recommend for anyone interested in making some fabulous pieces of jewellery.
