PRAISE FROM AROUND THE WORLD
Larnaca - 2014
My teacher who became my friend immediately, taught me so much from the beginning that I literally wanted to live at her workshop. She always gives her full attention to my work even if sometimes I had the craziest ideas, for me that is, for she has tried every trick she imagines.With her technique, supportive and creative way of teaching I am now the proud owner of silver jewelry which always draws attention. Everybody always asks me where I bought it from or who made it from me. So I proudly answer that I have the greatest teacher with loads of patience who taught me to make it from scratch. I believe that I can never stop learning from Meropi, so I am looking forward to my next level of sessions.

Skype class: March, 2015
This was the first time that I took a metal clay class using Skype, and I was unsure what the experience would be like. I was not disappointed!
After we agreed upon a time for our first class session, Meropi sent me a list of the materials that I would need for the class, so that I was well prepared and ready to begin.
Although the Box Ring class is very detailed, I was able to clearly see the instructor’s examples and follow her instructions. When I adjusted the camera on my laptop. Meropi could see, evaluate and correct my work, and it was almost like having her in my studio!
I would recommend this method of learning to anyone who is unable to travel to a class. Meropi is a teacher who is very generous with her time and her knowledge. Even though I never left my house, I learned many new skills that I can use in other projects, and am thrilled with my Box Ring!

"I was looking for an instructor to do the Art Clay Certification course level 1 and 2 and am very happy I decided to do them in Cyprus. Meropi is a fantastic teacher, very patient with a warm and caring personality and a deep knowledge and passion for metal clay. I very much enjoyed the classes in her well equipped cosy studio. I learned a lot thanks to Meropi’s great teaching skills and her superior knowledge of the English language. She was kind enough to share many of the tips and tricks she obtained in her 11 years of experience with art clay and her knowledge of traditional metalsmithing techniques. I was so happy with what I was able to learn with her, that I added an extra private tuition day after finishing my certification course. Whatever creative inspiration you are trying to make reality, Meropi sure has a solution! She also gave me valuable insights and ideas to how to start my own business and as she is a distributor for Art Clay and metal clay tools I am able to order from her and ask her for advice on the best tools. I was very lucky to have Meropi as my teacher, spend time with her and now have her as a friend.
Thank you very much Meropi!"

Caring, friendly and welcoming, she is very generous when she explains every step you have to follow. I learned in one day that I could learn for a week.
Thank you so much.

Meropi's beginners workshop is worth the price. She is exquisite at her craft & it is truly a joy to participate in designing as well as creating a piece of wearable art. I really enjoyed connecting & sharing stories with another individual who is so inspired with everything around them. Also, she answered all of my questions (even if they had nothing to do with art clay) I felt as if I left with the desire to learn more...
I will definitely be coming back & perusing art clay as a hobby & maybe even a business adventure one day.
I can't say thank you enough, Meropi! See you soon.

Dear Meropi, the 34 weekly sessions that I attended with you was really productive and above all we had a lot of fun. You have the gift to transmit your passion for metal clay to your students. For me it was a relaxing break from my daily routine.

My name is Sonia from Nicosia. I have taken the course. It was very productive and creative since I have learned sooo many interesting things.
Meropi was very helpful and knew all the materials that she was teaching.

Thank you for an amazing day. I had so much fun ''playing'' with silver clay!
Meropi was really helpfull and fun to be around. The best part was wearing my necklace, knowing that it's unique and being able to tell everyone that I did it!!
Fantastic experience from the first minute until the last second!
