"Had a fantastic day doing Alison’s Spoon Making course. Alison shared lots of really helpful information and hints and her work space is just amazing! I have workshop envy!!!"

- Tracey

I have done three workshops with Alison and each time have come home with a terrific piece and learned the basic skills to do it again on my own. Alison is a gifted teacher - encouraging, resourceful in helping each participant realise their unique piece, patient, relaxed, enthusiastic and a full of knowledge, tips and tricks. Also, a great space set out beautifully to accommodate four participants. And, finally, a real coffee machine!!

Alison is very professional in her approach to silversmithing. She has a fabulous studio which is very well set up. She is young and knowledgeable and she is a good teacher, as she is patient and explains well.
