WHAT PEOPLE SAY

BESPOKE VISITING TUTOR COURSE| In-house Private Group Tuition
2-Day Diamond Mounting Tips of the Trade

In April we had Nick G (Goldsmith) teach a two day diamond mounting course in our own workshop.

Beforehand I had been concerned that it (the course content) would involve maths and measuring angles but with the use of a handy gadget that Nick had designed it really did not and was all hands on.

 

Nick was patient and generous in his teaching and gave us useful hints and tips throughout the day.

 

It was good having someone as skilled and knowledgeable as Nick watching our practice and giving us tips on how we could do things more efficiently or different products we could use.

 

The two days were very enjoyable. We tried several mount types and created pieces that we were pleased with and now have the confidence to try making mounts of different shapes whereas before I would have mainly used round and oval.

 

Many thanks for organising the course. Nick was a great teacher.

 

I would rate our course 5* excellent.
