Course Reviews and Testimonials

'Flux is a special place...I can feel the freedom of creativity at Flux studio. It is very important for me to feel that there is no boundary and everything is possible. Tutors always come up with solution for my random ideas.' Wiggy, 2013

'Flux studios is like my home away from home studio, I get so much from Vicky's approach to running the studio the sharing of skills, experience and learning new approaches and ways of working.  I love the personal challenge and the friendly collective atmosphere.  I love that after years of not doing jewellery I'm thinking like a jeweller again.' Vik, 2013

'When I am in the studio for my three hour class, I am completely lost in the world of learning new skills and producing an original outcome. The added bonus is the other more experienced jewellers that use the workshop, they are so approachable and willing to discuss what they are doing and it's quite inspirational to watch and learn side by side. I have gained so much from being on the courses and having the expert guidance and genuine enthusiasm that comes with it.' Sandra, 2013

'If I had to chose one word it would be "fabulous" . The tutors are an inspiration. They provide a great deal of individual attention and are always encouraging. We have learnt a wide range of techniques and it has been enormous fun. I am dreading the end of the course and hope to keep attending flux on an occasional basis. My 9 year old daughter and I attended a one-off Halloween themed workshop last weekend and had a ball! Finding Flux is the best thing I have done in years.' Chris, 2013

'I came across Flux Studios. It sounded less flash , more serious yet more relaxed and a lot more professional than a lot of the other places What I didn't anticipate was finding not just a studio to meet my practical and creative needs but more , much more...Vicky is an incredibly  talented and successful jeweller and yet is always open about sharing her techniques . Having the opportunity to work alongside professional jewellers is not only instructive but inspiring . The individual attention, respect and support is so encouraging and the atmosphere so relaxed that I can spend an entire day there and not spare one thought for the daily worries of the outside world.
I am loath to lavish too much praise because one the many charms of Flux is that it is not huge and the groups are small . Flux is a very special place with a lot of equipment and a lot of integrity.' Juliette, 2013


'..There are loads of opportunities to see really interesting and often extraordinary work, and ask questions of the makers. I liked your small but perfect library and how open you are to the ideas, often quite incoherent, of ambitious beginners! I am also impressed by how regularly you offer free courses to Southwark residents, which shows a genuine commitment to your local communities. Having been to one course, it would never had occurred to me to go anywhere else, as the atmosphere and ethos of the workshops so chime with mine!' Helen, 2013

"Attending classes at Flux Studios is opening up many new avenues for my own jewellery design. The expert advice and tuition from Vicky...her attention to detail is second to none as she continually encourages her students to reach their full potential... and the access to superb equipment, in a friendly and ordered working environment, have all boosted my own creative output and confidence as a designer. Flux Studios is hard to beat on high quality of teaching and facilities, combined with very reasonable cost of courses." Claire 2013

I really enjoy going to Flux Studios to make and design my own silver jewellery. The studio is very well equipped and there are resources to inspire you, such as the library. It's great to have such an experienced and enthusiastic teacher to discuss your ideas and help you to build the knowledge to guide you through your designs. I have learned so much and been very inspired from being a part of the class and it's great to share ideas and learn from the other students. Everyone is made to feel really welcome. The studio is set off the road within a courtyard so it's pretty safe for cyclists locking their bikes! Lynn 2012


"The studio facilities are fantastic! You don't need to buy anything to start the course, I was able to start the course as the tutor is very flexible for making up the time you miss. Moreover she is excellent tutor! "  I V,2012

"Having studied with Vicky for two years at Lambeth College, I thought I knew what I was getting when she set up the studios in Camberwell. I was totally unprepared for the purpose build jewellery studios and how it made making things a pleasure, and easier than it was before. Vicky's patience is endless and her knowledge is constantly ready to help me challenge and guide, without too many restrictions. As a 'good' teacher always should.  If you are even thinking about dabbling in the art of Jewellery design I don't think there is a better set-up / teacher to help you realise your dreams." SL, 2011


"If you are think you are creative, and like to learn when having fun this is course for you! If you are experienced and need guidance and inspiration this course is for you too! I could not wait until my Tuesdays lessons, to meet all students, to see what new techniques and jeweller`s secrets we were going to learn. This course thought me not only the manual side of the craft, but also how to transform my thoughts into a beautiful object. I have enjoyed that time so much! It was nothing better than meet with all students every week and work together. Such a pleasure to compare different point of view, tastes, imaginations especially after going to exhibitions or presenting finished items a front of all calls." Kinga

"Patient and knowledgeable... Excellent value for money. The course allows you to move your skills on to the next level through one on one tuition and plenty of practical time. The tutor encourages you to be independent and stretch your creative mind to do something new and different for each project. Like minded people with a great atmosphere. The tutor encourages you to learn from each other as well. Great fun.. you will look forward to each session!" Debilishy

"Top rate teaching...This course is excellent value for money and stands out from the rest. Vicky Forrester is a brillaint tutor - ensuring that each student is equipped with the necessary skills, technique, confidence and inspiration to make jewellery for life! Excellent range of equipment; everything that you would need to make jewellery with precious metals and stones effectively and safely...An informal friendly atmosphere... no stuffyness here! A great way to meet new people and share friendships, jewellery making tips and test out ideas." Beth

"Vicky is a fantastic teacher, who successfully manages the balance between class demonstrations & instruction with individual direction and advice, whether it be practical issues, design frustrations or just the need for some good old fashioned encouragement. Vicky is passionate about what she does and gets real satisfaction from seeing her students progress and develop. She seems to revel in being presented with tricky practical issues and coming up with a number of possible solutions which are mentally and creatively inspiring, if sometimes a little challenging. I look forward to the end of September and the start of the new course, when I have some new tricky practical issues to present :-) " Kate


"Great silver jewellery making courses! Great experience! The tutor (Vicky Forrester) is a fantastic and very experienced jeweller herself. She will work together with you and guide you during the designing and making stages to ensure that you feel confident about your work. She will make sure to discuss possible flaws to your design and will help you find solutions for them. She will cover step by step how to approach your work and supervise whilst you do it, allowing you to gain the first hand experience that you need, but making sure you produce something you will feel proud of. Most of the tools will be there for you to borrow if you don't have them, and you can also buy materials and resources from Vicky should you run out of forget to bring them yourself! Student life: Fantastic! A really good opportunity to discuss and show your work to other people, as well as seeing other people's ideas and desings. And yes, we do meet from time to time after the course for a few drinks too! Hope to see you there soon!" Francis x

"Make jewellery well, have fun, make friends! The tutor has a thorough knowledge and experience in jewellery making, she helps you to achieve great results and helps you explore your own ideas and individuality. The classes are informal and fun and very productive. The course is great value for money. The studio is well equipped and there are plenty of tools to share. The library of reference books can be a great source of ideas and the class discussions are also good for stimulation of ideas. Each session is productive and great fun, the group work in a very relaxed and happy environment. We socialise by attending exhibitions together and sometimes shop in Hatton garden for supplies." B
