Danielle was a wonderful teacher! Incredibly knowledgeable and a great, calming energy to be around! She made sure to give each student the attention they needed, and answered every and all question (and there were many!) happily :). I love my final ring, and am so grateful for her help. I'll definitely be back!

Very professional approach. I felt in very good experienced hands and enjoyed a great introduction into the world of silversmithing.

The 4-day summer jewellery intensive was the perfect intro to working with silver. Emily was detailed, thorough and calm in her approach. Thanks for an inspiring few days!!
