I learned some fantastic new skills in a warm, friendly environment. I highly recommend this course to those interested in further developing their existing skills and personal design aesthetic.

I learned different techniques which are very helpful in my jewellery making, my highlight was being able to finish the pieces I started writing th the help of the amazing teacher Diane and students feedback, everybody was very helpful and shared their knowledge.

I was given the first Atelier course as a gift for my birthday. I got so much out of it and enjoyed it so much that I continued for an additional term. I will definitely be back for many more courses! Learning here is unlike any other classroom environment I've been in. You are able to do only and exactly what you want to work on, it is a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere plus you come away with skills that are real that you can start using right away. I had zero experience making any sort of jewellery when I started and now I am setting up a space at home to keep working on making pieces even though the course has ended. I very highly recommend this course and Diane was a particularly wonderful and patient teacher who I always looked forward to seeing each week.
