We learnt to make good quality, lovely looking jewellery! We all went home with something we felt proud of making. Emily was so informative, extremely helpful and patient. I would recommend this course to anyone who wants to try something creative. You will be pleasantly surprised how much you learn and much fun it is!

Amazing learning experience, great facilities and very hands on. The teacher, Emily, explained concepts clearly and helped participants design and construct pieces that were meaningful to each of us. This course exceeded my expectations and I feel was excellent value for money. This course has been the highlight of my holidays. I only wished I lived closer so I could go every week.
