I took part in the silversmithing and encaustic art which was offered on the taster day.The instructors on both were very good as were the materials available. I left with beautiful items and also learned something new.Well worth the small price paid.


Thoroughly enjoyed this taster day! It gave me a well rounded view of what each course offered and I found it very creatively inspiring. All round brilliant day & would definitely recommend & attend more int he future


Attended back in the summer. Was a very enjoyable afternoon, with a good variety of crafts to try. Particularly enjoyed the silversmithing, making a ring which I have been wearing since. Definitely recommend!


I really enjoyed this day (the summer '17 version). I tried the silversmithing and made a ring, eco-printing with plants and flowers, paper crafting and encaustic art so was happily absorbed for several hours for very little money! Lunch at Cegin Bella was also delicious. Will definitely be coming to the next one!
