Jewellery Making Workshops
PLEASE NOTE: My workshops are only open to over 18 year olds. My insurance does not cover anyone under the age of 18 and I am not CRB checked. Please do not buy a session for anyone under the age of 18 at the time of the session. They will be turned away. Sorry! See below.
As all pieces are handmade to order, orders can take up to 3 weeks to be dispatched. We aim to dispatch all orders within 3-5 working days, if not quicker. If you require them for a specific date, please contact us first to make sure we can deliver within your deadline.
PLEASE NOTE: The Royal Mail delivery time quoted is not the dispatch time - I need to make your order up before it can be dispatched. So if you choose the Special Delivery Next Day service, this does not mean the item will be dispatched next day - this is just the Royal Mail delivery option selected.
