“Thoroughly enjoyed the weekend, if there is an opportunity in the future, we would not have the hesitation to come back again.
Would also like to say a big thanks for being so patient.”
Ling Bei Tan
“We really enjoyed the course. Lots of ideas and new skills to take away. To be recommended, Thank you!”
Suzanne and Danielle, Dekker
“I found the whole experience excellent. The course and finish to the jewellery were better than I expected. I have never been a person
to express my emotions and my professional training taught me to further contain emotional responses. So I am pleased to tell you I was
absolutely delighted and thoroughly enjoyed myself. Thank you for such a good introduction to a new activity.”
“You explained each method clearly and were very patient whilst we both made our notes on the techniques you showed us.
By breaking down the processes into small steps and encouraging us to practice these techniques under you supervision,
we have gained confidence and increased our knowledge base significantly. We found this far more effective than learning just the theory.
In a large class it is impossible for the tutor to check our understanding of techniques demonstrated. It is also hard to see what the item
looks like up close, so when you stopped at each stage to show us how the work had progressed, you solidified our learning, checking that we
have understood the process properly. Thank you for your tutelage.”
Lizzie Robb and Chryssanthi Buckley
“Altogether a very enjoyable time and I am very pleased with my bowl — and now have increased respect for those who make the process look easy.
We covered a very wide range of techniques in what is, realistically, a very short time, but I never felt rushed or that I was not being given
a full explanation.”
“Thanks for a great “One to One” jewellery course. I can’t fault anything, the right amount of teaching to practical was given. We have
already recommended it to friends. I can’t believe that the finished rings were made by ourselves.”
Neil Campbell and Sheila Lock
“A fantastic two days, I would love to do more work, especially experimentation and processes”
Diane Anderson, Bacup
“We would definitely recommend the course to others and really enjoyed your training, knowledge and friendly
hospitality … and … the jewellery making of course!”
Paul & Jenny Wheeler, Carnforth
“Every process was demonstrated and explained really clearly. It was great to see my idea take shape and become a finished necklace that
looked really professional. I had a very enjoyable day and now have a very special gift for my daughter’s 21st birthday”
Dee Swift, Windermere
“The course was exactly what I was looking for, the chance to experience making jewellery in a one to one situation. I also enjoyed
living at Yvonne’s house, it allowed discussion and ideas to continue in the evening. I have done quite a lot of courses in the past year
and this was the best I have been on, Yvonne is an excellent and intuitive teacher”
Penny Spreadbury, Nottingham
