Student Reviews:
“An excellent course for learning some basic skills. Kirra is very good at sharing her skills and experience in the craft. While you do cover the basic principles/theory, most of the class is hands-on. Very enjoyable & good value for those wanting to dip their toes into silversmithing. I would definitely recommend it.” – Rebecca

“I got to this beautiful little shop / studio & waiting was Kirra. She was so welcoming & warm. The class had 7 people in it but Kirra made sure each person was on the right track. She was very informative about everything any question was answered & she made sure we all had fun while learning. The highlight of the class was being able to feel comfortable leading a new skill in a room of strangers & leave feeling like you knew what you were doing while having fun with some amazing new people.” – Beth

“I took my 12 year old son and his friend as a birthday gift and it was wonderful. Kirra is a wonderful sharer of her knowledge and skills. We all made wonderful pieces that we’ll treasure always.” – Genevieve
