I booked this to do with two friends. It was really enjoyable.
Wendy's instructions were easy to follow and she was very patient with us!
We were all delighted with our bracelets.
Great value for money.
We would all highly recommend.
I'm sure we will be booking to do a different crafting session with Wendy, as she offers so many different things.
( great soundtrack whilst we we working too 😃)
I booked this course for a friend and I. Having done macrame back in the 70s it was a delight to have Wendy teach us the feather. My friend and I had a thoroughly delightful couple of hours. Wendy is patient and really takes time to ensure you are following and understand what you are doing. I would highly recommend her.
What a lovely way to spend a Saturday afternoon! Thank you so much Wendy, you were so patient and explained everything so clearly. We both love our macramé plant holders and hope to join you again to learn more exciting things in the future. Delicious coffee and great must too, thank you 🙂
This was my 2nd macrame course with Wendy and it was excellent! As always, everything is provided, she is super patient and really clear when explaining things, and we had her undivided attention as she closes the shop. You literally couldn't ask for anything more!
Thoroughly enjoyed this class. Wendy was so welcoming and knowledgeable. It was a super relaxing and fun class. Many thanks 😊
An amazing course! Wendy is so welcoming and knowledgeable. All materials are provided (along with a tea/coffee/hot chocolate!) and the class is excellent value for money. Wendy also closes the shop during classes so you have her undivided attention which I’ve never known anywhere else to do. She has the perfect approach that makes even tricky knots seem simple and when you get stuck/confused she can always get you back on track and never comes across as patronising, she makes you feel great about what you achieved. Also, as someone high risk in the pandemic Wendy was so accommodating for my needs/concerns and I honestly couldn’t have asked for more! I’m back for another macrame class in a few weeks and I’m sure will be doing more in the future too!
I loved this class. Wendy is a really great teacher, she explained everything in a way that made things easy and gave us some great tips and advice. Would highly recommend
We really enjoyed our workshop with Wendy. Our tuition was excellent and we were very pleased with the finished result. We will be returning for another workshop in the future.
3 of us were there and we really enjoyed the macrame bracelet making - and had a bracelet at the end! - wax paper making next!!
I have done several of Wendy's courses and have enjoyed all of them. Having done the macrame wreath my friend and I have caught the macrame bug so booked to learn how to do the feathers. As always Wendy gave clear instructions and she is so patient! We are already thinking about the next course we'd like to do. I can highly recommend these courses.
Loved the macrame class with Wendy! It’s something I wanted to be introduced to and Wendy's clear explanations were very helpful in making it an enjoyable experience. She also gave me a leaflet before I left so I can replicate the experience at home. Will be back for more classes!
I attended Wendy's macrame wreath course yesterday with my friend and partner. Wendy was ready with all the materials laid out, examples on show to get ideas and plenty of patience when we asked lots of questions. It was a relaxed atmosphere in a nice workshop. We achieved a lot in the 2 hrs, and it was very satisfying having a finished wreath to take home. There are lots of craft items on display which will entice me back for the other courses that Wendy offers.
Wendy was infinitely patient and kind. My best friend and I had her all to ourselves as we grappled with the art of knots by making something that resembled wall art.
Thoroughly enjoyed the day and would highly recommend Wendy and her teaching. Lovely little space ❤️
Loved this workshop in a relaxed, happy environment with an extremely patient mentor! Thank you, Wendy, for your understanding! (I got it in the end! )
I will definitely be returning to try my hand at another activity.
Great fun learning how to create a macrame wreath. Wendy leads the way with the basic knots but you are given the freedom to continue to express your own style. There is a choice of wire shapes: heart, star, rainbow and many more. Then you can have one or two colours to make the macrame. So pleased with my shooting star that I bought two wireframes and the cord to make more at home for Christmas presents. Well worth the cost and two hours spent in a delightful craft room enjoying the company whilst learning how to create beautiful works of art. Thank you, Wendy.
Brilliant workshop with Wendy. I had never tried macrame before but this wasn’t an issue. Relaxed & plenty of time to achieve a completed wreath.
Great tunes too Thank you
Really enjoyable course - time went so fast, always a good sign.
Wendy was very clear with instructions and helpful when needed.
It's a great setup there. Would recommend.
Very pleased with my results - added a few beads and trimmed it at home.
I love going to Wendy's, it's always comfortable and easy crafting. No pressure even when you get it wrong, Wendy is there with help and a solution.
I bought loads of extra wires to make more at home for presents for the family. Really different and very simple to make, with a choice of colours and shapes so you don't get stuck with someone else's choices.
Always enjoy Wendy's classes.
Not new to macramé, but have never made a wreath before.
Given me lots of inspiration for further projects.
This was my first try at macrame. Wendy was really welcoming and helped us all as needed. Her instructions are really clear so it was hugely enjoyable and a place we could learn and have fun together. The plant hanger looks very professional. I will definitely be back for another course and with friends too.
The Little Craftery shop offers a quaint environment to do your craft session. Wendy was very welcoming and nurtured us through the steps to complete our beautiful bracelets. Definitely will be using her for xmas presents for family and will be doing other sessions.
I went with my sister in law for her birthday. We really enjoyed the class. Wendy is a great teacher. We both loved the Macrame wall hangings we made. I gave mine to my Dad as a birthday present and he also loved it. Thanks Wendy , it was a very enjoyable experience. :-)
A very enjoyable morning learning macrame. A relaxed atmosphere and excellent tuition with patience if you where a bit slow on the technique! I even have a professional looking end product.
I certainly recommend this course to others… Thank you Wendy!
Absolutely loved learning how to make a macrame wall hanging. This class is such good value as you come away with a beautiful piece of art to hang up, but also with the skills to be able to do it again at home. Wendy is a great teacher and so patient. The little touches really go a long way, such as offering biscuits, tea and coffee and giving us a little 'how to' leaflet to take home so we know how to replicate the same hanger at home. I wouldn't hesitate to book another course here and already have one lined up in a couple of weeks time.
Wendy couldnt have been more helpful or patient. We were all complete beginners and all ended up with beautiful pieces of wall art and had a very enjoyable morning! Wendy was really flexible after one of our group got stuck in traffic and kindly purchased gluten free snacks for us which we relly appreciated Thoroughly recommend!
There was only me as Wendy is only doling small classes or singles at present due to the virus. But I got on really well. I did another macrame with her so had a little bit of a head start but still I'm not very good but Wendy is very patient and watches everything you do and helps to stop making a mistake that will take a long time to undo and redo.
I'm so proud of it, and Wendy gave ideas how I could adapt this hanging to be a little different and how to go on and make others.
You get all the supplies you need and instructions to take home to try it at home.
I love it there. Can't go wrong, either on your own or with up to two friends, you will everything Wendy teaches and there is a lot. Even for me that crafts all the time. There is always something new.
I made this bracelet before the Covid restrictions, and it was my first attempt at Macrame. I gave the bracelet to my sister and she loves it, very pleased as she is very difficult to please. And I enjoyed making it.
I have done several classes with Wendy and am never disappointed, she is welcoming and patient, she needs to be with me I'm afraid. I do a lot of crafting but always go to Wendy to learn new crafts.
She gives me an excellent basis on which to build skills to go and make other things, or indeed teach others at church.
I have made a few things with Wendy and whilst I am a 'seasoned' crafter, Wendy always finds something new that intrigues me.
The Macrame feather was my second attempt at Macrame and even though Wendy had to tell me several times where I had gone wrong, she never lost patience with me. Just corrected where I went wrong and off we went till next time.
Due to Covid, her classes are smaller than usual but even so they are fun, I would recommend The Little Craftery to anyone who wants to learn a new craft.
Had a lovely time learning a new craft, fabulous environment and lovely teacher. Would highly recommemd.
When you're learning from scratch it's reassuring to have someone watching and guiding you through the tricky stages. Wendy was friendly and attentive which meant mistakes were picked up quickly and corrected. The atmosphere was relaxed and convivial. I ended up with a piece of craft that I'm proud of and feel confident to attempt it again on my own. Thank you.
Wendy is a calm and patient teacher, and everyone came away with a lovely macrame bracelet along with a new skill!
I enjoyed this so much I have booked into the macramé wall hanging class.
The class was well taught and I am pleased with what I produced.
What a lovely Macramé bracelet class where I learned a new creative skill on a wet Sunday morning. Wendy is very patient (just as well as I seemed to be the last one to finish every time) and very knowledgeable. I left the class eager to show off my new bracelet (which looked shop-bought, in a good way!) As soon as I arrived home I showed my daughter how to make a bracelet with the kit I bought from Wendy. Watch out everyone this Christmas, guess what you're going to get from me??!!
A very good course. Easy to learn thanks to Weny’s teaching and patience. Very relaxed and nice friendly atmosphere. Time goes very quickly and it’s informative and enjoyable. This is the second course I’ve had and will certainly be joining more in the future.
Well taught and just the right number of other students
I really enjoyed this class and would like to thank Wendy for all her help. I didn’t manage to complete my Macrame and have booked another session in order to go back and hopefully finish off.
The classes are small and everyone is really friendly which helps put you at ease.
I'm really happy with my bracelet. Really enjoyed the class. Looking forward to the next one.
I wasn't sure I would be able to do it, but Wendy is very calm and patient and made it very easy. I've made a few more at home and I'm getting quicker. Definitely recommend. *****
Thoroughly enjoyed the class, Wendy made it seem easier than I thought it would be. I just need to practice the knots before I forget how to do them :)
I really enjoyed my macrame lesson on Monday with Wendy. Definitely going to be making some bracelets for friends over the next few weeks. Thank you for the tea and biscuits.
Great fun, small group and friendly. Looking forward to booking another workshop.
Wendy is a very enthusiastic and patient teacher. She is very friendly and knowledgable. I look forward to another craft workshop soon!
I really enjoyed my Macrame lesson on Monday with Wendy. Definitely going to be making some bracelets for friends over the next few weeks. Thank you for the tea and biscuits
Cute little craft shop, run by a patient lady. I was a bit wary of trying something new but I thoroughly enjoyed it, and Wendy was eager to explain and help as we worked. I am pleased with my bracelet and it has taught me a new craft which always opens up new ideas for me. I look forward to attending more classes. Thank you Wendy x
I was a first timer at macrame as it was a Christmas present so not sure what to expect.
However I was warmly welcomed and felt relaxed straightaway. Just the 4 of us on course as one cancelled which meant extra help and advice.
Overall an excellent afternoon out and would fully recommend a craft course at Little Craftery.
The jewellery course looks very interesting.
Intimate location. Instructive and fun. Happy and proud of my bracelet. Will be going back to try different classes x
A great course & Wendy is a really good tutor.
Thankyou Wendy for todays class. I really enjoyed making my bracelet.
Wendy is a great help, very knowledgeable and patient teacher. The craft shop is a great light space with ample of room and even provides a nice hot drink and sweet treat. I would definitely recommend her excellant workshops.
Looking forward to coming and trying more classes.
Thank you Wendy for setting up such an enjoyable craft afternoon! It was both relaxing and fun making the macrame bracelet in your lovely studio, with very pleasant company and your most patient teaching. You make a great cup of tea too! I shall certainly book more courses with you and I would thoroughly recommend this macrame class to everyone! Having bought several little macrame kits from you, I came home and made another bracelet, whilst at the same time showing a friend how to make one herself too! Success all round - thank you so much Wendy!
Brilliant one and a half hrs spent making bracelet love it thank you Wendy x
I had a lovely time making my bracelet. The class was well taught - it was so nice having such a patient teacher who explained things clearly. The other ladies doing the course were friendly as well so it made it more fun. Thank you.
Had a lovely time, my bracelet looks great and Wendy was really nice and helpful. I would come back.
Really lovely little craft shop. enjoyed my class there. A very patient teacher and I'm thrilled with my bracelet. Looking forward to coming back for another class!
Good value for money, well lit working space and clearly taught by knowledgeable teacher.
Finished product looked like the example.
Even included coffee and chocolate biscuits!
