Beginners Silver Jewellery Workshop with Emma was fab! Emma is incredibly welcoming and friendly, and the class size is limited to 2, so Emma could really make sure that we understood every step of the process, and enjoyed it. It was a really excellent introduction to jewellery making as no shortcuts are taken, you do all parts yourself, rather than just watching a demonstration - even soldering! I came away with 4 beautiful silver rings I made myself, having had a really great experience and with a greater appreciation of the techniques and skill required to make jewellery. Would definitely recommend! (And Emma's studio is right next door to Crate, so it's perfect for grabbing pizza and a beer after...). Thanks Emma!

My daughter and I signed up for the 2 hour silver jewellery making workshop as it was something we have both wanted to try for ages now . We loved it! Emma is very patient and puts you at ease straight away. She is an excellent teacher and makes it a lot of fun too. Can't wait to try another workshop .

Really loved the workshop - Emma was super patient in answering all of my questions, and helped me make two beautiful stacking rings exactly like I wanted them. Also really love her ethics - all the silver is recycled and fair trade and I got a peak at some of the pieces she's currently working on, which are beautiful, but also raise awareness about a really important environmental issue. Would 100% recommend this workshop and am already thinking about building more skills in silversmithing. Thanks, Emma!

I really enjoyed my time with Emma making silver jewellery! I was amazed by the fine skills required given that I had zero experience in making jewellery - Emma was very friendly and patient with me the whole time. She was very knowledgeable and explained everything we were doing which also helped a lot. I felt a bit nervous at the start, but loved it once we got into it - I'd definitely recommend anyone who's just wanting a taster to jewellery-making!!

I really enjoyed the workshop, and I had a great time at Emma's studio. I learnt all the steps to make a silver ring and it was very rewarding to create something from scratch in just 2 hours. I also loved the fact that the materials were recycled and everything was sustainable!

Fantastic workshop! Definitely recommend. Emma was so kind and patient in showing two total beginners the ropes. We had such a fun time, and left with gorgeous ethical silver rings - I even got to make 2 which I wasn't expecting! Already thinking of booking another workshop with Emma.

Emma was a great teacher and the course was excellent. Two hours is the perfect amount of time to learn a few new skills, practice them and leave with a trinket of your efforts. Really enjoyed it, thanks so much Emma

Emma was so knowledgeable and lovely! It was like having a workshop with a clever friend — and I came away with a beatiful new recycled ring I will treasure forever. I plan to book onto the wax ring workshop next! Highly recommended.

It was a great introduction to jewellery making and Emma's teaching and support was really helpful and easy to follow. As a complete newbie, I thoroughly enjoyed having the chance to use different tools and methods, and come away with a finished ring at the end!

The course itself was great, however unfortunately my friend and I were very excited for the class after our 3 previous attempts being cancelled/rescheduled and we got to the class to find out Emma wasn't going to be teaching us. The class was still a lot of fun, but we would have appreciated being told beforehand that it would not have been Emma as we may have asked to reschedule

This workshop was awesome! Emma is so knowledgeable and shares her knowledge in a very relaxed, confident and fun way. Her workshop is so inviting and she had set up everything we needed within easy reach. She was great at explaining each step carefully and ensuring we understood before letting us get on with it. I knew if I got stuck she was there to help. She is very empowering. I made a beautiful silver ring which I am so proud of. I wholeheartedly recommend this workshop for anyone and everyone even if you have never imagined you could make a piece of jewellery, Emma makes that possible!
