So many great techniques were taught and we were able to get one and one tips and advice throughout the duration of the course. Erin was a brilliant teacher and I would highly recommend this course to anyone interested in silver jewellery design. I'm looking forward to starting the intermediate course soon where I can expand my knowledge.
