We can not recommend Wendy and this course highly enough, with great tuition and a warm and relaxing atmosphere we came away with necklaces which we were very happy with and the knowledge to continue making more jewellery at home using this method. We are looking forward to doing other courses in the future with Wendy. Many thanks.

This was my first ever class on jewellery making & I absolutely loved it! Wendy was very welcoming & her teaching way is very relaxed & encouraging. With the class taking place in her studio you gain such inspiration for lots of other helmweave items she has on show. I look forward to attending other classes at The Little Craftery to broaden my knowledge on chainmail technics under the expert tutelage of Wendy. Absolutely fabulous! 10/10 *****

I had a lovely afternoon learning how to make a chainmaille half Persian 4 in 1 bracelet.
Wendy was brilliant and even though I hadn’t done this before, I was soon busily making a bracelet with Wendy’s guidance.
I was delighted with the finished result and can highly recommend Wendy and The Little Craftery. Thank you for a lovely afternoon!

Small and friendly class - everyone completed the items. The goods supplied are good quality, the instructions are well thought out and Wendy makes the items along with us and is always ready to offer help if needed.... and there's coffee or tea and biscuits. Lovely way to learn something new.

I enjoyed the class and learning a new skill. Teaching was relaxed, clear and friendly. The environment was good, large and light. All the equipment was supplied. Nice to get refreshments.
I didn’t score excellent as I didn’t finish my bracelet and perhaps course should be 30 mins longer.
Also kits to take away to do another bracelet would be a good selling idea, or the rings prepacked in bags 10,20 etc

Response from The Little Craftery:

Hi Lucy,
Thanks so much for your review. I think you're right, a slightly longer class might be easier, as it is quite a tricky skill to pick up. I'll look into lengthening it. I love the idea of packaging little kits, I'll get on to that too! :)
You did brilliantly well on the class, and hopefully now you're very pleased with a finished bracelet. Don't forget that if you have any trouble with your chainmaille, you're more than welcome to pop in or get in touch and I'll be happy to help any way I can.
I'll see you at your next class! :)
