Could not have had a better experience! Great workshop to do solo as the people you meet are fantastic. Roderick was friendly, welcoming and sure knows his stuff around jewellery making. The class was fun, and informative. Best of all, Roderick helped me create a ring I am very proud of. Definitely recommend this workshop.

Had a really, really great workshop! I loved learning about all the science-y stuff and learning more about why the metal behaves the way it does, as well the more arty side of how to make the finished ring look beautiful. For the first time I have a ring that fits me - I never want to take it off!

My mum and I went to Rod's silver ring-making workshop as my Christmas gift to her, and had a great time. It was so satisfying to spend a couple of hours focusing on creating something, learning about the processes, bending pieces of metal, melting solder, hammering texture and coming away with something really special that we'll both treasure. Rod is an excellent teacher and I'd really recommend this workshop!
