I can highly recommend the course (Christmas Wreaths and Swags). It was very friendly and welcoming, delicious food and lots of tea and coffee. The mulled wine and homemade mince pies were a lovely touch at the end of the afternoon. I am thrilled with what I was able to make under clear instruction from a very capable teacher. It was the perfect start to my Christmas preparations.

Deb Hart – Christmas Wreaths & Swags – 24th November 2015
Dear Brian and Julie,
Just wanted to send a quick email to say a massive thankyou for today, both Lisa and I enjoyed ourselves very much and are very proud of our wreaths and swags. I must admit, I wasn’t expecting such a fantastic lunch, pastries & tea, it really was lovely. Unfortunately I am not on facebook but will certainly recommend your art and craft days, and am sure that I will be booking another course in the new year.
Once again, thank you very much.

I had a brilliant day at the Butterfly Studio making my own wicker basket. Location is superb, facililities excellent and just too much delicious food available for any self respecting person. Tutor, Deb Hart, was brilliant - entertaining, interesting and patient.
Well done to Butterfly Studio for creating a successful art and craft business and long may it continue.

The whole workshop from start to finish was thoroughly enjoyable. The class is small, enabling one to one help and advice. Deb Hart is an excellent teacher, informative, chatty and extremely knowledgeable. The finished product is lovely, and much better than I was expecting it to be. The surroundings are clean and comfortable, showcasing many of the other crafts on offer.
The welcome shown by Brian and Julie together with the fantastic food they produce was brilliant.
It is the second workshop I have attended at the Butterfly Studio, and have recommended it to so many people. The willow basket day was a birthday present for one of my daughters as she had just moved away and, knowing how much she enjoys art and crafts, we wanted her to have a lovely day, but also to have something at the end of it to keep. All in all, it was perfect. Our other daughter has already dropped hints that her birthday is coming up!
