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 !

Fabulous workshop, me and my partner came away with special silver rings and a true understanding of the jewellery making process. Collette was lovely and spent the time to answer any of our questions and provided a very unique experience, would highly recommend to anyone! We are looking forward to returning to make some bangles!

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.

Collette’s silver ring making class was brilliant! My daughter and I had a fantastic time last Saturday morning. It was just what I needed! Collette’s warmth, patience and positivity made our experience even better and the time just flew by. I am a D&T teacher and to make and finish a silver ring in the time that we had is outstanding! No less than 5 stars will do! Thank you once again Collette.

I really enjoyed the gem set silver stud earrings class with Colette. I was fortunate to be the only person on the course, so had one to one attention for the day. The studio is well set up, and Colette was a great tutor, very patient and encouraging, and explained the process thoroughly.

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!

We had a session with Collette on Saturday afternoon which was absolutely brilliant. She showed us what to do but also let us get on with it ourselves which wasa great mix. Really recommend this ring making class, and we’re very pleased with how the rings turned out! Thank you again Collette!

My husband and I had the best time making rings with Collette, she was a really good teacher with a good balance between showing us and making sure we did it right but also letting us do it ourselves. We love the rings we made!

Me and my partner attended the silver ring making workshop last weekend and we had the best time! Collette was lovely and taught us basic ring making skills and showed us different techniques we could use for the finishing of the rings. The workshop was both relaxing and super engaging. Now that I know some basic skills, I will certainly come back with a more intricate jewellery design. Many thanks again!

Colette is an amazing teacher. During the whole workshop, she was very patient and took some time to introduce all the tools that I would need to make the rings. This workshop is ideal for anyone who loves jewellery and wants to do something creative and relaxing at the same time. I love the three rings that I was able to make from scratch and I am planning to book other workshops similar to this one. I really enjoyed the workshop and would definitely recommend it!

I’ve had the best time with Collette! She’s super friendly and easy going and besides explaining everything practice-related, she’s also great company. I’ve made an amazing silver ring (if I may say so) and I’ll definitely be coming (brining some friends) back here!

I’ve learned so much and made a beautiful ring. Colette is extremely friendly and has guided me through with great patience and knowledge.

Such an enjoyable experience! I went along to make my boyfriend a ring as a gift and i was delighted with the outcome. Collette was lovely, chatty and let me really be hands on. She explained everything clearly and was a great teacher! Im going to be doing more classes through obby and definitely with Collette. Other then creating things for yourself its a great idea to make gifts for other people! And im certain my boyfriend is going to love the ring!

Collette is a wonderful, friendly, patient lady. Her venue is fantastic. It is comfortable and modern with a sense of history linked back to the industrial days of the Docklands! I had a great couple of hours with Collette learning the techniques used to make a silver ring! I am very proud of my first attempt and I look forward to doing more classes in the new year! Anyone looking to try something new, or doing something a little bit different spend some time with the lovely Collette! :)

My daughter and I had a superb afternoon with Collette. We both came away pleased to bits with the silver rings we’d made, but even more so with what we’d learnt. I enjoyed it so much I’m now looking for a silversmith course I can do at home in Newcastle - can’t recommend the taster sessions with Collette Dawn Jewellery enough!

Collette runs informative yet fun workshops and at the end it feels good knowing you’ve avyslly made a wearable piece of jewellery.
Louise
We had a wonderful experience with Collette. As a group of 9 we arranged a silver charm making session and we all had a great time. We couldn’t believe that from going in with no experience we came out with 9 lovely silver charms in just 2 hours! Collette was informative and knowledgeable, guiding us patiently and somehow ensuring all 9 of us were on the right track! We sawed, hammered, drilled, filed and soldered our way through the 2 hours and really enjoyed ourselves. We have already been recommending the experience to our other friends!
Jane
An absolutely fantastic workshop. The venue is beautiful and central. Colette is lovely, skilled and patient. She arranged a great workshop for 9 of us to design and make our own silver charm. The making did need concentration but was really enjoyable and you really do make the charm all yourself. I would highly recommend Colette’s work shops for a hen party or girls celebration for all ages.
