Lovely afternoon with Fran. I really enjoyed the process and company while designing and making an amazing pair of earrings. I would highly recommend this class.

This workshop was a really creative and collaborative experience which I totally enjoyed - many thanks
The teacher's positive approach and practical support made the experience really affirming - giving one the confidence to try more. I look forward to participating in more workshops in the future

The class was terrific. Fran was super lovely, knowledgable, outgoing and caring which made me feel completely at ease. She was so helpful and I thoroughly enjoyed the class. I can't believe I made a full set of gorgeous earrings on the first day which I gave to my daughter who bought me the class as a gift. I also had one of the best tasting coffees made for me ;). The studio has a very relaxing ambiance in a lovely bush setting. Fran is a true artist with a lot of other talents all of which added to the creative energy of the day. Fran makes her own beautiful jewellery, many of which I was tempted to buy for myself (and might still do). All in all, I can't say enough good things about the experience and I highly recommend the class. Thanks, MJ.
