To book

Please email me through the contact form or at admin@joannetinleyjewellery.com with your choice of dates from the list below. Please note that these dates are subject to change and are only meant as a guide to my availability - please do not assume that a particular date is available for you until you have contacted me and I have reserved that date for you! Thank you.

Please note that I can only reserve tuition dates for a week. After that time if the deposit has not been paid the date(s) will be made available again. The balance of the tuition fee is due two weeks before the tuition date. Refunds will only be made if I can find someone to fill your date.

Although several dates have been listed in order to give as much choice as possible I do not usually teach on more than one day a week. Therefore if, for example, a Wednesday is booked the Friday in that week may no longer be available.

Jewellery tuition makes a perfect present for the person who has everything! Gift certificates are available using the link at the top of the page.
