My friends and I had a brilliant time with Mel on her Embossed Letter course. We started quite nervous but Mel put us at our ease, explained everything repeatedly (!) and with great patience. Mel gave us a fantastic introduction to this craft both through her knowledge and teaching but also through the many and varied examples of her work to be seen in her studio. We all came away with a piece we could be proud of - what more could anyone want? A brilliant day!
A very instructive and interesting course. Mel was very helpful and friendly. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
I had a very good day making a decorative letter and bookmark, Mel was very patient and encouraging. She shared her knowledge and passion with us and provided all materials. It was great learning a new skill. Thank you Mel.
