"It is a few days out from the workshop and I am still buzzing from Alison's enthusiasm for teaching and passion for design. It truly was a fabulous day. As an 'L' plate silversmith I so appreciated the instruction on techniques that Alison was able to pass on to the class participants. I was in heaven walking around her beautiful work space. I wore my completed necklace to work and received nothing but complements. If you can get on one of Alison's workshops DO IT!!!"

"Alison’s copper bowl-raising workshop was an excellent experience. Everything was beautifully set up, Alison was very good at explaining the new techniques and guided us through the making process really well. The only downside was that it had to end - I would have happily stayed at her studio for longer and done another workshop! :)"

“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!!”
