I spent the morning with Sara ( and her lovely dog Misty) learning how to make a pair of drop earrings. I went along with no skills whatsoever but was encouraged and supported as I designed and created a beautiful pair of earrings. Sara is an incredibly patient teacher and such fun to be around - I will definitely be booking another workshop!

Perfect workshop to learn about silversmithing. Sara’s knowledge and expertise is vast and useful- and she’ll explain anything you’d like to know about to the fullest extent to help you understand. As for the process of silversmithing, I made a silver spinner ring at her suggestion, which I love and use all the time now. She guided me through every step by showing me first, and then adjusting my technique to help me get a much better feel for it, including but not limited to cutting, stamping, hammering, soldering, filing, and polishing of the ring. She also showed me how to saw, as I was curious. In a nutshell, this workshop is exemplary and working with Sara was an inviting, conversational, educational, and overall wonderful experience! I look forward to taking it again, should I have the opportunity before I leave the UK. Thank you, Sara xx

We had a fabulous day. We went with a design idea and pictures, and Sara patiently guided us, as complete novices, through the processes necessary to make surprisingly gorgeous jewellery. All the time we were plied with tea and encouragement. It was great value for money, and we can’t recommend this incredible workshop enough and we’re excited to do our next silver jewellery projects.

I cannot recommend this workshop highly enough. Not only was I guided expertly to create my own beautiful bangle, by a real expert, but also found it to be extremely relaxing and therapeutic! I have zero artistic capability but managed to create something beautiful. I will be going back and taking friends as it’s a wonderful gift idea. The environment is beautiful and very peaceful.

My experience with Sara was fantastic. I learnt so much about the silversmithing process and had a brilliant hands on experience. I came away with a unique set of stacking rings that I know I will wear everyday. So happy with my half day with Sara and would recommend it to anyone (no matter the level of silversmithing experience)

What an amazing afternoon, i bought this experience as a gift for my mums birthday. Sara is so knowledgeable and patient, what we produced was beyond our expectations! Her workshop is lovely and easy to find. We all had such a great time and i am so glad that i have booked another afternoon to do it all again! Can't wait!

Sara was lovely!! I booked an afternoon session to create a personal, handmade item to give as a family present. I am so pleased that I took the chance and booked a session - I have no creativity (!) and no previous experience but I now have a gorgeous pair of earrings and I completely loved my afternoon. Initially, Sara made me tea and we talked about possible designs for the earrings. Sara guided me through the process and we came up with a totally original design. I loved using all the tools and learning about the different silver techniques - the time flew by and Sara’s gorgeous little dog sat happily watching us throughout. I loved my afternoon and I will definitely be back. Thank you so much Sara.

During my workshop I learnt about silversmithing tools, how to heat and manipulate silver. Sara was informative and explained everything really simply , gave me lots of options and plenty of time to practice before starting my final piece. I came away with a bespoke pendant that I designed myself in memory of my father and I will treasure the experience always

What a fantastic morning making my very own cuff bangle. Sara was the perfect tutor; very knowledgeable with a calm and patient attitude, she helped me create something that I absolutely love!! I'm already thinking of planning another visit :-) The space is perfect for a one on one or a group visit in wonderfully relaxed Surroundings. Honestly couldn't recommend enough!! Thanks again Sara x

I booked our making day as a present for my friend's 50th birthday and it completely surpassed our expectations. (and we were excited!) Three of us made different things, all of which turned really well and my friend was absolutely delighted. I made a ring which was technically really tricky, Sarah is lovely, so patient and knowledgeable and the finished piece is wonderful. I would really recommend one of Sarah's courses and hope to do another one myself soon.
S Hill and R Barltrop - Mar 6, 2020
This treat was a 60th Birthday present for my little sister. As we both live in Kent the day was local. The host was charming, friendly and clearly very knowledgeable. The workshop process was very professional without being intimidating. The location was lovely, light, warm and welcoming. We had a wonderful day, it was different and much more engaging than 'Afternoon Tea'! I wouldn't hesitate to go again!

I had a fantastic day making a bangle and a added ring for a extra small price. Would definitely recommend and do it again. Venue was great!
