Hi Helen

I would just like to say thank you very much for the last 2 days on the lampshade Course I really enjoyed it it was interesting to see we had all done a different shape, and was amazing the way they came together.
And thank you to Cherry for the delicious lunches,
I would likeCome back to do another course hopefully in July.

Thanks again hope to see you soon


What a lovely weekend. I achieved so much more than I thought I would. I was so pleased with the result of my six panelled silk up cycled lampshade. The Barn is a great place to work, it is light, airy and room to move. Lunch was excellent although difficult to get back to work. Although I did not finish my lampshade Helen gave us more than our share of time. I came away knowing that I could finish it but if I got stuck could email Helen and ask for help. I am sure the directions are fine but we did experience some difficulty but this just added to the fun of the weekend. Idiots reading maps! Yes I would recommend Helen and the Barn to my friends. I am coming again on the next course in a few weeks time. I am really looking forward to it


Fun course. Acheived an 8 panel, lined lampshade by the end of the weekend. As a complete beginner, I was really pleased with the result. Helen provides a relaxing teaching environment and is on hand for all questions. Also, the lunch was lovely. Thanks for a fab weekend
