My son and I loved the Metal Jewellery For Mindfulness class. Our teacher was fantastic, we had amazing equipment to work with, we really got to exercise our creativity with guidance through every step. We learnt heaps and both walked away with a beautiful pair of one of a kind earrings each. Highly recommend.

This class was so relaxing and walked away with two amazing pairs of earrings. The venue was beautiful - surrounded with beautiful plants and serenity. Sarah ran the class with a really gentle nature, explained the process and was on hand when we got stuck. I would highly recommend the class and the venue :)

The teacher was knowledgeable, relaxed and helpful. This was the first time I did something like this and I learnt a lot about the process.

The venue was stunning and created a very relaxed and chilled atmosphere. The venue was also perfect in creating inspiration for the potential earring designs.

All materials were provided and were in good working order. There was also a lot of choice where I felt I could create earring that were creative and true to my character.

What a wonderful way to end a busy week. The small group allowed for one on one instruction with the teacher as needed and along with the beautiful location and ambient music, helped create a calm atmosphere that allowed us to be focused and creative. We all walked away with quality handmade jewellery that will be loved and worn. I would highly recommend this workshop to anyone looking to de-stress, explore their creative side or learn some new skills.
