What our students had to say… “I had the pleasure of attending one of Naomi’s workshops today and had the time of my life! Not only was it so informative, it was fascinating to truly understand what amount of work goes into making jewellery. I meet and made friends with those that attended and for myself fully intend to do other workshops when presented. I made 4 rings from the silver given which is amazing. So much fun and laughter along the way. I’d highly recommend attending and if you have a group of friends even better. You won’t regret it. Keep up the great work Naomi and look forward to the next one ” – Mags B “Naomi was fantastic! I got more out of this course than expected. If anyone is interesed in the class, DO IT! – Makoola H
“I had the best time learning the traditional methods of jewellery making and laughing a lot while doing so. I never knew is was such a process to making rings, but totally worth it and I highly recommend the class” –
‘Had a amazing day out. The reason for me doing the course was because I am new to the area and wanted to do something different and meet new people. I did that and so much more. This work shop is fun, informative and such a great laugh in a relaxed environment and at the end you come away with something you created that looks beautiful. Very self satisfying. Thank you I recommend every one do it” – Kelly D I went to one of the jewellery work shops on the weekend and had a really lovely time. The class was small, completely hands on and I ended up with 2 pendants and 3 pairs of earrings. A lovely way to spend the day, I really recommend the experience.- Dani
