The whole workshop from start to finish was thoroughly enjoyable. The class is small, enabling one to one help and advice. Deb Hart is an excellent teacher, informative, chatty and extremely knowledgeable. The finished product is lovely, and much better than I was expecting it to be. The surroundings are clean and comfortable, showcasing many of the other crafts on...

Shown how to set up my spinning wheel and help with problem solving so I could get it working properly (which it is now). Range of processes and skills shown and Elaine has a...
