I had a throughly amazing time. Naomi put us all at ease and guided us through the steps we needed to do, to end up with lovely case bound notebooks. I enjoyed every minute and can't believe I actually made some lovely books. I would highly recommend this for anyone to try.

I spent an utterly entrancing day. This course is so much fun; Naomi sets out everything so clearly, masterfully corrects any slight wobbles and the end result is stunning. I came away with notebooks that I adore.

This was such fun with 5 other lovely people and Naomi, the tutor. She taught us skilfully and patiently and we all said how impressed we were with what we’d made. A brilliant way to spend an afternoon. 5 stars.

A great class, Naomi spends time and effort to make sure that everyone gets the very best out of the day. I thoroughly enjoyed making both of my books. Would love to see more classes in the future that can build on what we have learnt in this class.

What a fabulous day! Thoroughly enjoyed myself. Naomi was incredibly patient and knowledgable about the art. Somehow, she managed to divide herself between 6 of us and accommodate to our individual needs. I love my new notebooks and can't wait for the next workshop!
