The idea behind this workshop is great. The equipment and the skill of the instructors were definitely high. However, it felt unguided and unstructured. While more advanced participants may have capitalised on this freestyle class to create whatever they want, as novices, some prototype models and examples with clear instructions may have been more fruitful.

Instructors were super detailed and very knowledgeable. Duration for the workshop was just nice and the instructors answered all our queries and helped guide us in making our jewellery pieces. Super memorable experience and will be back for more!
