We absolutely loved this workshop. Annie is fantastic. She gave really easy instructions to follow and had such a kind, gently manner; an absolute please to work with.
We made our wedding rings during our time with Annie, a memory neither of us will ever forget 😍 if we lived closer, I'd probably end up with an entirely new jewellery collection!
The workshop was relaxed and informative and we'd do it again in a heartbeat ♥️
I’m in line with my ring.

Annie was so kind and patient. She gave tips, instructions and encouragement. That is everything I love in a teacher. In the end it led me to create a beautiful ring that I would buy in a store. I still marvel when I look at it.

As you should Marvel Elinor! You both did a great job, thank you for the kind review.
Best Art and Hand-Crafting Experience in Canterbury
Mary_I, May 2023
I was visiting the UK on a school trip and had an extended weekend, and on a whim chose to spend it in Canterbury. I only had one thing booked before I arrived to my hotel and it was this Silver Ring Workshop. When I say that this made my trip, I truly mean it. The owner was extremely kind, courteous, helpful, and fun. She walks you through every step of this 2-3 hour workshop in a way that isn’t demeaning like some workshops I’ve been to. Instead, she happily walks you through every step and teaches you why those steps are important and even lets you take your time through the experience. She kindly listened to my ramblings while we were waiting for the ring to be cleaned, and offered me refreshments throughout the process. I never imagined that creating my own ring could have been this fulfilling, educating, and of course: fun. If you have to do anything in Canterbury, it’s this!

What a review! Thank you so much Mary, it was a lot of fun having you in the studio.
A great experience - do it!

I was looking forward to Annie's workshop and when I finally got to her studio she didn't disappoint. Annie was very kind and knowledgeable about her craft. I enjoyed every step it took to make my ring. I highly recommend Annie and her workshop.

Unique activity in Canterbury
James_F, Sep 2021
What a great idea for an activity in Canterbury! My wife and I never really liked our wedding rings, so we decided that these would be our new wedding rings since we were able to make them together. Annie was very patient and took as much time as we needed to make them just how we wanted and to understand each step in the process and why it was necessary. It was well worth the cost for this special experience.
Response from Host, Sep 2021
Thank you for the review James, it was lovely to meet you both and great to hear you enjoyed the experience
