My daughter and her boyfriend didn't even get to make rings! Appalling customer service, 2 bookings cancelled and one, not even contacted to say it wasn't happening after 40 mile round trip! Was told I would be contacted and wasn't. While am sympathetic to apparent family problems, this does not excuse total lack of communication and owner should have contacted Groupon in the 4 months she said she was off work to stop further bookings being made if they couldn't honour them. Has not offered to compensate in any way, bad attitude and clear lack of business know how. Daughter and boyfriend very disappointed as it was a birthday treat. Owner also commented that they do not make money from groupon offers, maybe not but they are clearly happy to use it to attract customers so should be looking after those that may bring potential future business.

I bought my mam the sterling silver ring workshop groupon. We had a great time and came away with a lovely ring too. I would definitely do something like this again.

Total lack of organisation!! This is the second class ( first one candle making ) that has been cancelled on the day !!! Apparently though the course had been booked several weeks in advance they had no Silver !!! Very disappointing !!

The tutor, Jane, was excellent with all the materials laid out ready, and the instructions were clear. There was a friendly supportive atmosphere and my husband and I came home with rings we are proud to wear and to have made. Excellent value and we are recommending it to others. Thank you!

Very professional setup and enthusiastic lady who ran the painting course, explained everything clearly and happy to pass on all the tips, would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to get confidence in taking up painting furniture, no hard sell either to purchase their products.
