Bettina Kristiaman Jun 2021

I enjoyed my session. It was great that the class wasn't too big so it was easy to get help and support. I guess it's just tricky if you have a cat allergy cos it held in an apartment, so a dose of claratyne would help before class. The teacher was very friendly, approachable and nice. Overall it was a fun couple hours!

Thank you Lauren for such a great class. You were a very patient and knowledgeable teacher! It was good to learn in your studio and be able to see where you work, and get to use the same materials. Great value for money - walked away having had a really enjoyable evening, with my handmade ring and earrings and new skills.

Fantastic class! All materials and tools were provided. Lauren was a great teacher and walked us through all the steps on making silver jewellery. As there was only two of us, we were able to make 3 small pieces of jewellery.

Amber Oct 2019

Ayana was so helpful and patient while I awkwardly tried to smoulder my jewellery pieces together (2 x rings, and 1 pair of earrings). Would definitely recommend if you were ever curious about this wonderful hobby/skill. I plan to go back and try my luck at a few more pieces. The resident cats are super adorable and make for great company.

I loved doing this cosy & fun workshop with my friend, on a chilly weeknight evening. Lauren is lovely and a very helpful teacher! I didn't think that I had any silver smith skills but I left with pretty pieces. Than you, Lauren.
