It was a great day with Nick, the workshop is great – full of interesting tools and equipment with a great view too! He was very welcoming and put me at my ease.


I already knew the basic concepts of mounting, so it was really good to learn the tips and tricks of the trade and how to make a setting for an unusual or irregular shaped stone.


I knew a day wouldn’t be a long time on this, years of practice is required, but I have a good base now and more confidence to attempt the designs I had in mind before the course.
