What a lovely day we had. Rose is an excellent teacher, very patient and helpful. The course, making velvet poppies, was a birthday gift to my sister, allowing us to spend a creative, fulfilling day learning a new skill, together. I had attended one of Rose's courses previously, on that occasion creating a beautiful Christmas decoration. On both days the preparation for the courses was meticulous and refreshments were generously supplied. At the end of the day all the students left with a beautiful flower. I highly recommend these courses and will definitely be doing more of them in the future.

Response from Made with Rose:

Thank you Linda. It was a great day and you should be proud of the beautiful poppy that you made. Looking forward to creating new flowers with you again.

Had a lovely day once again with Rose, this time making cherry blossom. Thank you Rose for all the preparation you put into making our day special (not to mention the tea and biscuits,) thank you also for your patience and helping us to take home lovely cherry blossom displays. Hope to join you again.

Response from Made with Rose:

Thank you Jan. I really enjoyed making cherry blossoms with you. You now have gorgeous blossoms that will last forever.

Ruth Phillips - - #29247

I have attended 2 of Rose's workshop. Rose is an excellent teacher and you enjoy a creative day learning a new skill in a lovely relaxed atmosphere. Everything is prepared for you and Rose gives very clear instructions and it's lovely to come home with a beautiful flower creation.

Response from Made with Rose:

Thank you Ruth. It was a really fun day and I look forward to working with you again

Suzannah Johnson - - #23872

Have taken this course on two different occasions. Rose’s instruction, her demonstration and her layout of the tools you will need, makes it idiot proof.
It was fun, no pressure, gentle encouragement, very meditative experience.
The best part, I discovered a skill that previously would have sworn I did not possess. Thank you Rose.

Response from Made with Rose:

Thank you for your comments Suzannah. It was a pleasure working with you. Never under estimate your creative spirit. You have developed a real skill for making silk flowers and I have enjoyed watching your creativity bloom.

Carol McQuilkin-Dunn - - #23870

I have attended 2 of the silk flower making courses now and have found each one so enjoyable. A real chance to explore my creativity while learning new skills with such wonderful results. Rose provides excellent tuition and encourages you to express your own originality with a wealth of choices. The venue has an ambient atmosphere of comfort, spaciousness, ideal for relaxation and helping you unwind.
Rose puts a lot of thought into making each workshop original and seasonal. Touches like offering complimentary mulled wine at the Christmas Roses workshop was welcomed by all. I made new friends and felt like therapy for the soul.

Response from Made with Rose:

Thank you Carol. There is no better complement than to have a returning customer. I really enjoyed being creative with you. I hope that you can carry on your creative spirit as it is really important for our well-being and mindfulness.
Laughter, fun, good company and a great product is definitely a good day out.

Kind regards

I had a fantastic day learning how to make peonies. The process was so interesting and produced beautiful results. Rose explained and demonstrated every step very clearly and is a very supportive teacher. It was fun to learn a variety of techniques and so satisfying to watch it all take shape. Great day, great company, would definitely recommend and can’t wait to do another one myself :)

Response from Made with Rose:

Thank you for your feedback Jennifer. Peonies make great silk flowers and yours looked Stunning. I make a different flower every month and I am looking forward to us creating more flowers together again in the future.
Kind regards

Marcella McQuilkin - - #23843

An excellent day, productive and very creative, using techniques with heat that produced effective results. Managed to produce a really lovely Gerbera inspired brooch that is perfect to wear on my coat, jacket or my broad straw hat I wore the next day. Rose is warm and very welcoming and modelled each step in the process perfectly.

Response from Made with Rose:

Thank you for your feedback Marcella, I certainly enjoyed working with you. Your Gerbera brooch was an excellent example of your creativity in bloom and made a stunning accessory.

Joy - - #23817

The peony workshop was the first time I had booked to make anything creative. Rose is so patient and explains everything really well. Had such a fun day in lovely company and was thrilled to bits with the beautiful flower I had at the end of it. Thank you Rose!

Response from Made with Rose:

Thank you for your feedback Joy. Considering that this was your first ever craft day, your Peony was absolutely stunning. I just loved the colours that you chose.

Dilys Fisher - - #23816

It was my first time making these flowers and I'm so glad I booked to learn with Rose. She is so knowledgeable, patient, and happy to share her experience. I was looking for not just a creative day but also a relaxing day and it certainly was that. I am already looking at my diary to see when I can have my next 'Flower Fix' with Rose.

Response from Made with Rose:

Thank you for your feedback Dilys. I really enjoyed working with you. Your summer wreath was just beautiful.

Karen Walters - - #23814

It was my first time making silk flowers and using a glue gun and Rose gave clear instructions and I was delighted with my finished Gerberas.

Rose was very accommodating, allowing us to select our own colour preference from her well stocked selection of silks, encouraging us to be creative.

I really enjoyed the course and will definitely be returning in the future.

Response from Made with Rose:

Thank you for your feedback Karen. You mastered all the skills very quickly and your summer Gerbera was beautiful. I am looking forward to us working together again on the next flower.
Kind regards
