It was exciting to embark upon a new chapter of my jewellery making by purchasing Carolyne Brennan’s Silk Knotting Course.
An online course of this kind was a first for me, although I have been making jewellery for over a decade as a hobby. It came as a delight to me that the course did more than it promised – three fabulous pieces of which I can be proud – yet new confidence to launch into other projects with this technique and new design knowledge.
What I particularly valued was watching Carolyne’s hands working coupled with her detailed, patient instructions. She is thorough and kindly repeats the process, often, so that you can work directly with her.

Her generosity of spirit and encouragement, as well as the myriad of tips and techniques she shares along the way, enable you to feel that she is right there with you, every step of the way.
I loved the result with the first necklace and found myself opening up new avenues of creative thought and colour prospects. The second necklace was also enjoyable and gave me great satisfaction. The final piece, the pearl bracelet was rewarding as I felt I was improving in a new technique.
Carolyne is a master of her creative crafts willing to offer all of her wisdom and knowledge. It is a joy to share that with her on this online course.”
