I was quite apprehensive before going on the course as I had never done any wire sculptures before. I needn't have worried as the day was really enjoyable.
It was a small group with a very relaxed friendly atmosphere, good tuition and help and encouragement where needed (plus cake, always helps). My hands are a little arthritic but it wasn’t as hard as I thought, a bit tiring towards the end but we all managed to achieve what we set out to do.
I made a curlew which has received many compliments already. I will be back to create more wildlife.
Thank you Sue

We had a fab day with Susan making a wire goose. We were absolute beginners but with Susan's expert tuition it was made so easy and achievable. Beautiful home made cakes and bottomless cups of tea and coffee provided.
Can't wait to go back and make something else....very addictive...

An excellent day with an excellent tutor who made you feel at ease and that you could achieve. We all came home with a finished item ....and the cakes were fabulous. Great day, worth every penny, coming back soon.

Was a little apprehensive attending this workshop, as I had never done anything like this before. However Susan’s positive encouragement and great teaching points ensured that I left with a fabulous pheasant and a great sense of achievement. A great day; so much so that I will be returning soon!

A really interesting day and thanks to great support from Susan I came away with a recognisable owl! The cake and biscuits were delicious too.
