The classes and the experience were amazing. Jeanette shared her extensive knowledge and skill with the class and tailored her advice for the individual's own project. She was helpful and very patient with her students. The equipment and facilities were well set up and safety was paramount. I would recommend the class to anyone who wants to learn something new and make a gorgeous piece of jewellery. I will be back!
