An excellent way to spend a Saturday morning crafting with my in-laws. Clare is a fabulous teacher, patient, meticulous in detail, and gave us invaluable tips (as well as tea and cookies). I love my lampshade, and the fact that I made it makes it more special. Great value for money. Thanks Clare

I spent a lovely morning with Clare making my first lampshade. Clare is an excellent teacher who explained clearly what we needed to do. She demonstrated everything first step by step and was on hand throughout the morning ensuring that we got everything right. I'm delighted with my lampshade and feel confident to make more myself. Clare is a very nice, friendly person and it was a pleasure to spend the morning in her company.

I had a lovely time on the course, Clare is very friendly and encouraging, and the course is run at a manageable pace in a well lit room. A small class size helps, and it was a relaxing morning. I was very proud of my lampshade. Oh and Clare serves delicious tea and biscuits!

Clare is such a fantastic teacher and lovely person. We were all made to feel very welcome with regular offers of tea, coffee and biscuits over the two hours. The workshop itself was extremely well organised with all materials and tools set out for us. I was chuffed with my lampshade and have just ordered another kit to do another. Clare has helpfully provided a list of instructions and tips for us. I would highly recommend. Thanks so much Clare, hope to do more workshops with you on future.

Highly recommend this workshop. Had a really enjoyable morning and came home with a really professional looking lampshade which is looks fab in my living room. Clare is a fantastic teacher and whilst we chatted, guided us smoothly through the process, helping where we needed it. Very inspired by her prints, hoping to do another workshop soon.

My friend and I spent a lovely afternoon with Clare on the Drum Lampshade making workshop. Clare is an experienced teacher and took the time to explain everything clearly. Whilst not taking over, our teacher encouraged us every step of the way , which ensured that we learned the skill for ourselves. We were thrilled with the result! On our return home , my friend had What zapped me a photo of her lampshade in situ in her bedroom before i had even had chance to unpack my bags !! needless to say we were thrilled with the whole experience and would highly recommend a workshops with this excellent teacher ( NB : Clare is also a fantastic designer too, and has created some gorgeous fabrics, which you can see in her workshop)
