I would like to thank Wendy and Clive for the recent wet moulding course I attended, leather work courses are few and far between and it was a shame only two people turned up for this course as although only a half day course there is still enough time to cover different aspects, and come away with some quality items, it's a very enjoyable old craft, and a lot can be learned from a hands on course, I hope to make the journey for more of their courses in the future
Thank you for the review. It was a shame that the course was not full, however we are currently in challenging and strange times. The afternoon workshop was full and we actually put on an extra workshop in the evening for two health workers looking to do something crafty. We were very pleased to help out there, that is for sure.
We have currently postponed our next workshop (Hand Bound Jouirnal) and will advise on other workshops in line with the advice we are being given nearer to their scheduled date. Any bookings made will be transferable to another workshop. We do expect high demand once this is over. So if you like thelook of something, just book it safe in the knowledge that if we have to postpone we will simply move the booking to a later date and anyone already booked will be first in the queue.
Keep enjoying your leatherwork and it was great to see the photos you have posted on our facebook page!
My wife and I were given two places on the course as a gift - we both absolutely loved the course!!
Wendy & Clive were both extremely welcoming and the atmosphere for the class was relaxed. The class was well paced and structured brilliantly so even as complete beginners, you could make progress quickly.
Would highly recommend (and we’ve already recommended it to friends).
Proper tea, great biscuits and some of the best views around from the workshop are an added bonus ;-).
Thank you for our 50th five star review! Great to hear that you both enjoyed the workshop, tea and view!
We're off to polish our new Craft Courses Platinum Award! :)
Attended this course with my 11 and 16yr old daughters - they absolutely loved it.
It was about a month / six weeks ago we did the course and still they are proudly showing off what they did to anyone who will look at it and telling me I must arrange days like this one.
We are really pleased that you all enjoyed the workshop and thank you for the review.
I had a great time at the course arranged by my local craft group. I learnt lots and , as we given a choice of projects, learnt to stitch as well as embossing and dyeing. Clive and Wendy were great teachers, clear and supportive while always giving you the space to do it yourself. They have lots of equipment to give a professional finish. I would recommend this course and you certainly do not need to be particularly arty or crafty.
