My favourite course is the Metalsmithing as the techniques learnt assisted in repair work of my pieces and I am able to create crafts which I had been admiring.

The courses are practical and one can use the knowledge right from the first day of class. Instructors and staff are friendly, efficient and provide you with facts and useful information.

Great school with amazing people! I've learnt a lot and made new friends.

It has been a conversation topic with my friends, and I have learned a lot more than a typical consumer. Perhaps the next step would be to leverage on the knowledge and try making my own line of jewellery later on.
