Feedback & Testimonials

I have weekly sessions at Thinking Hand Studios to learn jewellery making skills and have found Cal and Damian to be extremely knowledgable and helpful and inspiring. They allow me to pursue my own direction and help me learn what I want or I have a more structured class to learn the skills I need. I have now mastered loads of new skills and am well on my way to launching my own products and jewellery brand. A very friendly and pressure free place to learn. Highly recommended!"
I recently attended a private wax carving workshop with Damian and it was fabulous. Damian is a professional and knowledgeable teacher with a wonderful passion for what he does. The tools and equipment we used was great and the communication before and after the workshop was fantastic. I learned so many new skills and had lots of fun. I can't wait to come back for more sessions and further my jewellery practice. Would definitely recommend workshops at Thinking Hand Studios.
