Two girlfriends and I signed up for this class. Our teacher Ruth is really knowledgeable and explained the process well. Phil is an excellent and talented jeweller and was on hand to help Ruth's students. He was very generous in his time and helped many of us to achieve the jewellery we wanted to take home. I have took classes from Phil before and absolutely love his contemporary jewellery which I was fortunate to be able to purchase. If you have not taken any of Phil's workshops, you are missing out. Contemporary Metals is fully equipped with professional benches and equipments. Highly enjoyable five hours on a Sunday. Thank you to Phil and Ruth.
