I have attended the beginners and subsequently the advanced courses and have found them very enjoyable. I had a little experience with beading but no silversmithing knowledge. The beginners course startedwith basic skills but I was still able to complete a number of projects including a bangle and bezel set stone pendant. On moving to advanced I continue to learn new skills Including etching and flush stone setting. The courses are well equipped with space for everyone. The tutors are knowledgeable, patient and inspiring. I would not hesitate in recommending these courses to anyone with an interest in precious metal jewellery making. I will be signing up for another 3 terms in 2014/15.
Chaotic, lack of equipment, unfocused tutor, lack of structure. Wasted so much time trying to find equipment. Difficult to get any help or tuition. Explanations lacking. Got bored to tears. Tutor has not left enough time for the last 2 modules. Complained in 1st three weeks, never improved. Waste of money.
