I attended a day long course to gain confidence in spinning. I achieved my objective. Elaine is an excellent teacher, being thorough, supportive and knowledgeable.

I’ve dabbled with mosaicing before but learned so much more in my morning with Maddie and Penny and things that had previously seemed quite complicated were made simpler and with better results. Maddie and Penny seem to see endless possibilities in all sorts of unexpected things and I get the impression they innovate and discover constantly so I’m excited to see what new ideas they have come up with next time. I learned how to fuse pieces of glass in a microwave kiln to make gorgeous, unique tiles with exciting results and possibilities. The day was great fun and I’m looking forward to going back to learn and create more as well as to spend time with two inspiring and gifted teachers in a brilliant studio packed with heaps of exciting materials, ideas and inspiration. Thanks Maddie and Penny

Blacksmithing and Metal Craft

I spent the weekend at Fransham Forge with a couple of mates on the one day course which needless to say was our only regret, we should've booked the two day course! Nigel's knowledge of the art and his patience as a tutor were excellent made the whole experience unforgettable. Whilst working in the forge we had a great laugh, made some really good stuff that we could take back home and use and definitely appreciated Nigel's awareness of safety on site. The accomodation is set in a quiet and picturesque woodland surrounded by a miriad of sculptures and everything that we needed was provided. I will definitely be coming back.
