Fabulous day/evening spent with ring making guru Allison who structured her class in small digestible chunks and by the end, we walked away with a gorgeous piece of ring that we made ourselves with our own hands. Amazing ! Would highly recommend.

Absolutely loved this class! Alison was a great teacher, who provided a lot of support while making our jewellery and taught us so much about the craftsmanship. It's clear that Alison is very experienced and informed in this area. The class is small (2 people at most), so you are able to ask a lot of questions and get all the help you need. I really recommend this class!
