My husband and I had a fantastic day with Clare. She is very friendly and easy to chat to. We were complete beginners so were nervous about what was involved. Clare explained and demonstrated every process clearly. She helped us choose suitable items to make and then led us through the day assisting us as necessary. Clare has a lovely house and we were made very welcome. You need to take your own lunch which she will pop in the fridge for you. Hot drinks and biscuits are provided.

Response from Woodland Crafts:

Thank you for your comments. It was lovely to meet you both and so glad you enjoyed your day. Clare

Clare, we thoroughly enjoyed our beginners course, and were delighted with the sun catchers we brought home - making something ourselves (under your excellent tutelage), felt like a great sense of achievement. You were exceedingly helpful and patient. Thank you.

My sister and I had a fabulous day each making a stained glass heart suncatcher and dragon fly. All materials provided with some lovely glass colours and textures.

Clare is a brilliant teacher who showed me how to make two lovely glass sun catchers that I will treasure. There is all the equipment there you need which is great. I can't wait until I can go again and am looking forwards to making some more brightly coloured sun catchers as soon as I can.

Sarah Smith - - #30006

Really enjoyable day making beautiful glass designs. Easy to follow to instruction and a great atmosphere.

Liz Fuller - - #30005

What a great time we had on this lovely course. Clare is really helpful and friendly and guided me though how to make a butterfly and dragon fly which will look lovely hanging in my conservatory.
If you would like to try a new craft I would highly recommend this one!

Abby Gray - - #30004

I attended a beginners course today and would recommend to anyone that is interested. I have a weaker hand and still found this was something I could do easily. I really enjoyed every minute of this course from start to finish. Brilliant teacher and there at all times to help and guide if needed. I can’t wait to do my next course. Seeing your finished piece is so overwhelming knowing you have made that yourself. And the finished piece is beautiful.

Pennie Gray - - #30003

I attended a workshop today and it was amazing. Clare was a perfect tutor and everyone who took part had a wonderful day and we each made and took home two beautiful stained glass sun catchers. Will definitely be booking another class/workshop xxx
