Really engaging workshop and I have a very lovely silver ring to show for it! I enjoyed Rods delivery of information and the setting was nice too :)

What a brilliant evening. I made the most gorgeous ring and Rod was so welcoming and friendly. He was really good at explaining everything and gave clear, straightforward instructions. This is the first time I’ve ever done a jewellery course and the ring fits perfectly and looks really professional. Highly recommended!

Great Workshop - Rod was very charismatic and helpful in explaining the details of the process. Really enjoyed it and can't wait to bring my boyfriend for another class soon. Also loved being able to leave with a gorgeous piece of jewellery at the end of the session, instead of having to wait to collect.

I have never done anything like this before and was a little nervous as learning something new always reminds me of being back at school and I didn't enjoy school. Rod made me feel so calm from the moment I arrived, telling us about all of the health and safety guidelines and letting us know where all the facilities were. The workshop is just such a beautifully creative space and immediately I felt the nerves turn into excitement. Rods calm and genuine approach to teaching in lovely to be around. He is clear with his instructions and explained every detail. I loved every moment and in a few hours I had made my own stunning ring! I have been recommending this workshop to everyone who will listen.

Was a great workshop thank you! Rod was a very good teacher and helped explain everything thoroughly throughout the event! Really fun and you get to keep the ring at the end! Would definatley reccomend it
Amy - October 20th
Rod is so welcoming and puts you at ease really quickly. Workshop sizes are small so you aren't waiting around for "your turn" but equally I never felt rushed. A fantastic experience, so good that I returned a second time! I have recommended the workshop repeatedly to family and friends and may even go a third time! I always get complimented on the rings I've made, and I still can't believe I made them myself!

I really enjoyed my Silver Ring workshop. Roderick was great. Really friendly and helpful. It was a small group which was really nice. I’d definitely recommend it.
Gill - August 21st
Fantastic course. Roderick was an excellent and organised teacher but made the evening fun as well. Can’t believe how well my ring turned out. Would definitely recommend him to others! Brilliant value too!
Imogen - August 19th
Brilliant workshop- informative, interesting and exciting! I had never done anything like this before but have a passion for jewellery, in particular rings. Rod is extremely knowledgeable and openly shares his expertise and passion. Rod's guidance and patience throughout the workshop was wonderful and would highly recommend to anyone else interested in making their own silver ring!
Lindsey - October 20th
Rod was absolutely amazing from start to finish. He was very patient whilst I tried to organise 12 hens and get dates and money sorted and he was exceedingly patient and fun with said hens whilst they made their rings. The workshop was fantastic, Rod was an excellent teacher, everyone was so pleased with the rings they made and we all had good fun. I'd recommend Rod and his workshop to everyone.

Rod is a brilliant teacher, very patient and helpful. This course is great and has given me the confidence to keep learning and making on my own!
