Useful information about your Jewellery Course

My garden studio is situated in Pampisford, Cambridge. You will be sent specific information on location upon enrolment in your course. My studio is quite small but with well equipped bench space, you will have most items at your finger tips, without the need to get up from your chair!

You will be taught in groups of no more than four other learners. This means that you will benefit from more one to one guidance and support than many other learning centres are able to offer.

During your time in my class, you will have access to tea/coffee and often biscuits. Toilet facilities are also available.

Sanitised safety glasses are provided, for each learner. You are advised to bring an apron. You are not required to wear a dust mask for occasional jewellery making, but if you do have any respiratory problems, you might wish to bring your own or buy one from me at the start of your course. 

I try my very best to make my courses and projects affordable. Shorter courses include a materials fee. Please be aware that the cost of silver remains volatile and fluctuates on a daily basis. The costs of bullion for longer courses will be set according to the current markets, but will not change within a term. You will be advised on the start of teach term of an estimate for each project, and where possible, given options if you'd like to limit the cost of your outcomes. 

Booking Terms and Conditions

Enrolment information

All courses must be paid in full at the time of enrolment. The payment can be made through various payment methods such as credit card, debit card, or bank transfer. To enrol in sessions, the learner must provide accurate and complete information about themselves, including their full name, address, phone number, email address, and any relevant information required.

Cancellation

The learner has the right to change their mind and cancel their enrolment in the jewellery school within 14 days of enrolment, to receive a full refund. The cancellation must be made in writing. After this time, you are not entitled to a refund, however, please do get in contact to discuss your options. Refunds may be subject to a cancellation fee. 

If you enrol on a longer course but are unable to attend specific sessions, you are not entitled to a refund, but it may be possible to offered you an alternative within that term. If this cannot be accommodated, then the time will be unfortunately lost. If you start a course but choose not to finish it, I will try to offer an alternative, but again this may not be possible. Refunds or partial refunds cannot be given. 

For short courses e.g. one day events, please let me know as early as possible if you are not able to attend, so I can offer this opportunity out to another learner. If possible, your booking will be moved to another date. Refunds will only be given if you are within the 14 day cancellation period. 

All group courses will need a minimum of two learners in order to run. If a course has to be cancelled due to lack of interest you will be offered the opportunity to enrol on an alternative course or date, or a full refund will be issued.
