I spent the entire day beading & making jewellery with Christine from Etelage as I did one course following the other neither disappointed. The beaded jewellery workshop was I nice introduction & skill set to take into the earring workshop which finished off the afternoon. Christine is very knowledgeable, friendly & patient but also very easy to approach if stuck in 'creative indecision'. All materials are provided. I still wear my creations & have made many more since.

I really enjoyed the earrings class. Christine is a great teacher. The venue is great and Christine provides all tools and beds. I made three pairs of earrings and I'm pretty sure that repeating the processes in the class will mean I can make them on my own.

Christine is a wonderful teacher. She imparted her knowledge in a professional yet personable way. There was a perfect amount of time do complete the three pairs of earrings without rushing.

Christine was very helpful and friendly and checked we all understood techniques.
Christine was very organised with kits and if someone wanted to vary their design a bit too.
Would recommend this as a beginner and that you have 3 pairs of fabulous earrings at the end of class.
Oh and the brownies were delicious too!

I can't believe that I made 3 pairs of lovely statement earrings within 2.5 hours under the guidance of Christine who is so patient and knowledgeable. I would love to continue to make beautiful jewellery again with Christine as she uses good quality materials.

I went to this workshop with a friend of mine and we both really loved it. There were so many earrings to choose to make - and the teacher has great style so everything on offer was lovely. The workshop building is a nice space; pretty easy parking nearby and we had good social distancing throughout. Very happy with this class and love my new earrings.

Natasha Burtenshaw Aug 2020


Great having interchangeable kits to choose from - made it easy to get started and learn techniques. Small class was lovely and felt like an excellent price point for the take home skills and product.

Diana Mao Feb 2020

The venue was great, with a lovely view and enough room for everyone. We made beautiful earrings and had a great selection of gorgeous beads to choose from. Chris is a great teacher too, showing each individually how to do things. I loved the class and the earrings I made.

I recently hosted a Hens party with Christine, and I could not be any happier with the event. I made a very last minute booking, and Christine was very efficient with her responses and everything was finalized within 2 days. The venue was beautiful, spacious and easy to find. The girls had the best time making vintage earrings while enjoying brownies and tea that was provided.I highly recommend this activity and won't hesitate to book again in the future. Thank you Christine for such a wonderful experience.

The class was absolutely amazing. The Venue was great, clean tidy environment which was easy to find on the busy Main Street. Christine provided us with all the tools, great materials and guidance whenever we needed and she gave equal time to each of the students. We were also provided with afternoon tea and sparkling water in the class so it was a relaxing experience. It was a great value for money as I managed to make 3 pairs of earrings that I’m really happy with. Thank you!
