History of Jewellery with Susannah King

A great experience. I was warmly welcomed. Susannah had an plethora of knowledge and explained it in a way that I (a novice) and professional Jewellers could understand and take something away. Susannah was also incredibly passionate about their craft. I would highly recommend it.

Anytime workshop/course: Intro to Felt Making - 2D & 3D

A really interesting and enjoyable course over two evenings. Heather made everything very clear and easy, provided great materials and ensured we all made something we were pleased with. I had never felted anything before but would now like to do more and feel quite confident about starting on my own. I'd also like to do another course with Heather. Highly recommended.
