Karen is quite simply a hidden gem… you’ll feel immediately at ease and learn in a great environment with a fully equipped workshop and never ending supply of creative motivation, inspiration, patience and practical know how. Not to mention lashings of tea!

Karen is lovely. Made us very welcome with a choice of hot or cold drinks and biscuits. Wide choice of ring sizes, tools and stamps, endless possibilities. All you need to take is your imagination and a little bit of nerve for when you move from your practice copper to the silver!

Karen was very informative and showed endless patience with our indecisiveness and inabilities ?. We ended up with a gorgeous ring each and great memories of a lovely day. Thank you Karen ?

Fantastic experience, would highly recommend it. We had a ring making experience which was brilliant. Hands-on, immersive activity where you make a silver ring from start to finish using stamps for texture and also letters or symbols.
Karen is an engaging and knowledgeable teacher who made the experience fun and interesting. I organised this as something special for my 50th birthday and I wasn’t disappointed

Absolutely brilliant day spent with Karen at Bench-space. She a great teacher and her patience meant that we were able to take these bits of gold and turn them into our wedding rings! Can’t wait to exchange them knowing we made them for each other.

Great experience making our own silver rings today. Lovely seeing them all come together.

Karen is a great teacher. Highly recommended. Can’t wait to go back to another workshop.

Attended the ring making workshop today. What a brilliant way to spend a few hours. Karen was great. Really relaxed and helpful. A great teacher. Certainly gave me the bug to try other classes with Karen. I am so happy with my ring. Made something I will genuinely wear everyday. Thanks Karen. ♥️
