Sarah – Intermediate Silver Art Clay – April 2018

“It took me a few years to take the plunge, but I am so glad I decided to go ahead with the course. Laura is a very calm teacher, which makes it easy to relax into the learning of new skills. Laura allows for individual needs and creativity and also the freedom to make decisions about the interests of the jeweller. I had a go at everything I wanted to and I had a great 10 weeks of doing something for myself. I’m really going to miss the weekly sessions. Would recommend anyone thinking about giving this a go to go for it.”

Gemma – Beginners Silver Jewellery Making – April 2018

“I started attending the Hampshire school of jewellery last year. I look forward to my class every week. I have progressed quickly with Laura’s calm and encouraging teaching. She is willing to help you have a go at anything and teach you all the skills you need to make what ever you want. It’s a very bespoke style of teaching and it’s really a lot of fun. I am making jewellery now that I would have thought far beyond my skills when I started”
