The book-folding workshop with Sara was perfect ! Such a relaxed atmosphere with excellent instruction for this simple but extremely effective technique requiring just a book, a pencil and a ruler. Some of my friends shared photos of additional books that they had transformed at home that evening. I can see that this can be addictive ! Thanks to all concerned.5

Really enjoyed the Christmas Bauble Making workshop with my Mum and Daughter. A lovely relaxing way to spend time together. We are now totally addicted to making more baubles at home! Sarah made us feel really welcome, was patient when we broke our needles and her workshop is amazing! Can't wait to come back for another workshop in the near future.

An interesting course which is really well designed. Everything was prepared and ready for us (including a homemade cupcake) and we just had to enjoy ourselves, choose a design and produce something lovely to take home. Loved it, thank you!

What a lovely way to spend some time and come home with the finished article! I love the little blue tit I made and can't wait for the materials to be delivered and start making a flock! Sara was very inspiring and couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. Roll on the next course! Highly recommended!!

Had so much fun on this fantastic course! It was a lovely space to learn a new craft in and Sara made it all very easy - (there is some math but nothing at all taxing). I left with some great ideas and am thoroughly looking forward to trying a new design on my own. Every friend, family and stranger on the street will be getting one of these books!!

What a treat, a beautiful location and an amazing studio with lots to inspire you to create lovely things. We had chosen the book folding course and although optimistic; I honestly didn't believe I'd leave with a completed design!

Tea was on tap, music tinkling in the background. (quietly as there was a bit of measuring going on which requires concentration!) We chose our designs and with Sara on hand to answer all questions, off we went. Well, unbelievably, within 10 folds I could see my star start to take shape!

Lots of chat and cake later, we'd all finished our designs and had our photo taken with them all. I was very pleased with my simple star, there were hearts, butterflies, numbers and initials, and a double star, offset slightly, which was very clever in a vintage book.

Thoroughly enjoyable experience and highly recommended.
