19 July 2020 • Silver Jewellery Workshop - Beginners

This was a fantastic workshop VERY well taught by Sarah and super well organized by the folk at The Old Auction House in Kyneton. Excellent value for money (I’m wearing my earrings and ring today) and I just want to do more - classes and working with silver. Thank you!

I urge anyone wishing to re-connect with their inner being to enrol in the Intuitive Colour Workshop: it was truly an amazing and wholly creative journey. Many thanks to Jo and Di for co-creating an experience that encouraged the connection between intuitive spirit and self. A most enjoyable day spent with beautiful people, thank you ❤️
