"Just spent a wonderful week completing the Level 1 and Level 2 Diploma at Summer School with Tracey Spurgin at her Craftworx studio. A highly experienced and patient tutor Tracey made the week extremely worthwhile, comfortable and enjoyable whilst gaining experience of new and exciting techniques and tools I made great friends of my fellow participants, Carol, Celia, Marian and Mary and would highly recommend the course."
Susan, Vericrafti - Summer School - July 2017

"What a great week. The week is centred around what skills you would like to achieve in order for your silver clay journey to grow and expand. Tracey manages to make the whole experience relaxing, whilst at the same time teaching new skills at a pace that is easy to follow. Although it may be out of your normal comfort zone when working with silver clay, you know that Tracey is there to support you and find easy ways to accomplish the new techniques she is teaching, if and when (as you will) encounter problems. A great week for anyone wishing to continue improving and expanding their own individual experiences with silver clay."

"I'm still in a mellow mood after a lovely week at Craftworx with classes arranged and taught by Tracey Spurgin... Can't wait to do some more clay work next week at home...!"
Mary, from Ireland - The Summer School Mixed Metal Courses, August 2012

“Just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU for such a fantastic week at Summer School. I didn’t want to leave! We made some truly amazing pieces and I have fallen in love with metal clay even more! I had only done a fingerprint workshop last year and that got me thinking there was more to this metal clay so I searched the web and found yourself and I am very pleased I did. You have a lovely studio there and in an amazing setting. All the other artists are very welcoming and friendly and it felt like being in a little community. I have had fantastic responses from friends and family over the pieces we made and everyone knows this is where my heart is and what I want to do. I am looking forward to joining you all again on future events and thank you again for all your help."
