Reviews

In-person course
Sandra Thomas - - #34823

After attending the one day course, 'Sketch-booking for New Artists, Journals, Keep Sake Books and Coursework' I have no hesitation in recommending Rachel and any of the courses she offers.

Prior to my visit I let her know exactly what I was trying to achieve in my own art book; areas I was finding difficult and techniques I'd like to experiment with. On my arrival everything had been well prepared in advance and things we would need carefully laid out.

I found Rachel extremely knowledgable and a great teacher. Nothing was too much trouble, anything I asked for appeared and I felt totally indulged and spoilt.

The day was fun, I learned loads and thoroughly enjoyed my day in the studio.

Best wishes
Sandra

Hi Rachel,

We have received three 'parcels' and a dropbox link to 30 videos.

We haven't got the chance to 'éxamine' the materials in detail so far. However, at a glance, we should have enough information to make a book. :)

Thank you very much for reaching out to us - greatly appreciate.

Kind regards,

Paul

Response from Gifted Crafts Company:

Thank you so much for letting me know you’ve received everything Paul. Please do let me know if you have any questions or need any help. Enjoy bookbinding! All the best. Rach
