Sally was ever so knowledgeable but explained everything so well that even a complete novice like me soon got to grips with the basics. I was made to feel very welcome and felt quite comfortable asking questions

We organized a virtual event for a group of 10. Lorna assembled and packed a small kit with everything required for the session. The packages were shipped in good time to allow delivery ahead of the event.

We had. Fantastic time on Sandra’s silver clay course , lovely lady full of knowledge and a great teacher. We were over the moon with our pendants that we made, I’m so pleased with the little heart I made for my granddaughter for her first birthday and my friend made a beautiful flower. It was a great day and we...

I absolutely loved participating in this workshop, Lorna was so patient and knowledgeable. Not only did I learn a new skill, I learnt about the history of book binding too which was brilliant.

Excellent facility, plenty of space, very friendly atmosphere. Excellent tuition from Helen, there when you need her but equally plenty of space to do your own work. Very rewarding (and surprising) when you see the end result. Very enjoyable two days, day one is tiring, but day two less strenuous but transformational. Already been back for an additional course.

I found communicating with Tracy pleasant and understanding as it was not quite certain at the time, if our holiday to Wales could take place due to Covid....

After doing the knife making day with Spike I can only highly recommend it! Spike was an awesome instructor, showing us what to do and offering advice as and when asked. He was also a fantastic source of knowledge over all areas of smithing as well as a teller of bad jokes :-) This was such a good experience taking...

We had a lovely morning making beads with Suzanne. She demonstrated lots of techniques clearly, to enable us to make a number of beads. I went with my 15 year old daughter who has some learning difficulties and Suzanne was very patient and encouraging, she didn't want to leave. Making the beads filled her with confidence. The studio was lovely,...
