A stimulating and "in the zone" session with Collette. She's a great teacher, we had a laugh and she gave me lots of advice on making a wonderful (and surprisingly sophisticated !) pendant that has been much admired since. It's just the right amount of time to make something that you can take home so thoroughly recommend it for a relaxing afternoon of learning something new. Thanks Collette!

It was such a magical! Worked well as a birthday gift for my partner. We both had an amazing time, left with adorable charms and learnt a bit of a new skill. The teacher made it fun and relaxing.

Collette was a great teacher and instructor through-out and she is informative, friendly, professional and patient. I really enjoyed the class and my finished pendant charm and she has a very lovely and well-equipped studio. I would do another class with her again.. highly recommended !

The class was great. Well equipped studio, really clear explanations and demonstrations. The teacher was friendly and gave us loads of individual attention. We both came out with pendants which we had designed and made, and know a whole load of new techniques. Lovely afternoon.

My daughter and I really enjoyed this class. Collette was super helpful and we came away with a couple of beautiful pendants we had made ourselves. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to have a go at making their own jewellery. Thank you Collette!
