A very creative course and Melanie explained all the stages so clearly. There were hot drinks and cake too. I thoroughly recommend her courses. "

I am so pleased you enjoyed your day. You soon got the hang of cutting glass and you really gained confidence as the day progressed. You made a lovely piece of artwork and I really hope you enjoy it! Thank you for the photo it looks great in situ.
It would be great to have you back on another workshop and I look forward to seeing you again. "
"My sister and I had a wonderful day drawing, using inks and creating wire fish with Liz, who is a brilliant tutor. It was very inspirational and has left me wanting to explore the ideas further. The surroundings are so peaceful and it was a joy to spend a day there looking at different techniques. I was delighted to be able to take home a wire fish which was most enjoyable to make. Thank you Liz for your kind hospitality and patient instruction. A fabulous day!"

Hurry back and try out some more workshops!

We can’t quite believe how much we learnt in 4 hours and super proud of our makes. We will definitely be returning for a more advanced course. Thank you

"I've just come from this course and it was a lovely way to spend a Saturday morning. Teresa is a fantastic teacher and the perfect host. She is a master at what she does. The class itself was a lot of fun with plenty of things to try, and with only 4 of us there it was very personal. I can highly recommend it!"

"I recently completed Moji's 5-Day course and added an extra day for good measure, and I can thoroughly recommend it to anyone who wants to get serious about lampshade making.
Having made a few lampshade in the past I was hooked but I wanted someone to help me take it further and I was so glad to have found Moji. Moji is the perfect tutor. Her patience, professionalism and encouragement the whole way has given me the confidence to move forward with improving my skills and building my business. She shared her knowledge, not just of her craft but also business skills, with generosity and enthusiasm.
Having travelled light, I didn't need to worry about anything like fabric, notebooks, lunches etc Moji thought of everything, and comprehensive notes were supplied at the end.
Her studio space is so welcoming and the learning experience so relaxed. And did I mention lunches? They were delicious!
I am so looking forward to returning again to learn textile printing!"
"Had a great day, very informative and also relaxing! Great tutors, great lunch and location and am so happy with my basket! Thanks so much. This was brought for me as a big birthday gift from several friends and it was a lovely thing to do. Highly recommended as a gift or just for yourself. "
"I recently attended the beginners Fused Glass course with my partner. We had an amazing time and learnt a lot about fusing glass.
Melanie was lovely; we felt at ease instantly as the environment was really relaxed and we had a brew and biscuits in our hands within minutes!
Melanie explained all of the activities in detail and was really attentive when asking for advice or just a quick reminder. The workshop was full of wide range of good materials and we had plenty of choice to design our items. We felt there was a good amount of time to design and complete our items and not feel rushed or bored.
I would recommend this course to anyone interested in crafts and trying new things. We found it really interesting, so much so that we are going back for a Monday Maker's session in the near future. "
"We would highly recommend the wood turning and pottery courses, even for beginners we had a great day with Simon and Louise, their instruction was really clear as well as making the day fun. Great lunch and looking forward to collecting our pottery when ready."
"Pat is a very good teacher. She demonstrated the pot throwing techniques in suitably small chunks then followed my attempts with patience and encouragement . Two hours were just about right for me and I'm pleased to say I left with plans to check Ebay for used equipment"
Pat Southwood responded:
" Hi Phil, thanks for your kind review, so glad that I have inspired you!
I will be in touch soon to let you know that your pots are ready."
