The whole session was fantastic. I wanted to do this course because they provided the chair which just made life easier. The process was fun, well taught and I love what I made. And I love a good fish and chips lunch - supporting a local business as well. Top marks. The shop is a delight and the course is structured in a way that gives you nice rests from various tasks to have a coffee or visit the shop. I'd highly recommend it. The teaching was top class and Steph was wonderful - perfectly pitched, helpful, constructive and just lovely frankly. If you're thinking of this, go for it. So much fun!

Great course, numbers are kept small so there is enough support for everyone. Instructions are given in easy steps to follow and Steph is always happy to answers questions. Oh and wonderful cake!

This was a really fun course. Steph is brilliant at demonstrating how to do things and has great little hints and tips along the way too. The group size was just right, giving enough space to get around the footstool whilst also having a lively group atmosphere.
I'm so pleased with the end product, it looks a lot more professional than I expected, which is definitely down to Steph's direction!
I would recommend this course to anyone wanting to have a go at doing something crafty, you don't need to have any previous experience.

Spent a lovely Saturday afternoon on this workshop. Everything was provided (except material) that you need to make the stool. Steph explained thoroughly every stage and if at any time you were stuck Steph was there to put you back on track. The workshop was attended by five students giving it a lovely relaxed atmosphere. I am really pleased with the end result so much so I feel confident that I could go ahead a make another stool. I would certainly recommend this workshop.

Really enjoyed the course. It was interesting to learn how to bring colour together in one room and a great help for my next project!
Love the relaxed atmosphere, great teacher and I hope to attend another course in the New Year!
