Judith reviewed: Introduction to traditional stained glass (1 day) in Sheffield, South Yorkshire

"Just spent a fantastic day making traditional stained glass with my husband and grown-up daughter. We had expert tuition from Martin, who added new techniques at appropriate points during the day, so we could progress at our own pace and not get overwhelmed with too much information. The equipment kits were great, and the choice of glass to use in the well-thought-out designs was wonderful. I would highly recommend this workshop as a lovely, way to spend a day."

Martin McAssey Glass responded:

"Thank you for the lovely review, I look forward to seeing you again in the future."

Chrissy Bowe reviewed: Beginners chair caning class

"Absolutely fantastic day, with an experienced tutor who explained everything clearly. Loved the fact that if you made a mistake she would find the spot and guide you through correcting rather than doing it for you.....fantastic learning procedure. All materials prepared so we could progress with no holdups. Wish she would do a next steps lesson... I'd be first in line"

Bridget Litchfield reviewed: Glass Artist's Studio Experience Day - Fusing (Open)

"Dawn explained everything about working with glass so we understood many of the techniques she uses in her work. She shared lots of her ideas and previous art pieces which inspired us all. Dawn had so many art and glass resources to work with and gave us lots of ideas to help us create our own pieces. Dawn was very patient, helpful and nothing was too much trouble when helping us to create our own glass pieces. I thoroughly enjoyed the day - thank you Dawn. I hope to return again in the future 😃x"

"I recently had the chance to join Jeremy for a blacksmithing experience, which I had wanted to do for years. It was an awesome birthday present!

Nicki Hamilton reviewed: Sculpture workshop two days with Jo Garden Art in beautiful rural Norfolk/Suffolk border setting

"Never in a million years did I think I could achieve a sculpture of a large owl that I could be proud of, but at the end of a fabulous two day course I have! With Jo’s help and guidance I have created a beautiful owl. I am thrilled with it. Working in a beautiful studio in a stunning garden deep in rural Norfolk was idyllic. Jo is a wonderful tutor and a great host. Her husband Andy works equally hard on making the course a success, providing the armatures and teas! Highly recommended."

Jo Garden Art responded:

"Thank you Nicki 😘 Your owl really was lovely - in particular the texture which really looked fabulous once painted in bronze and patinated blues and greens. Well done! Jo xx"

Alex S reviewed: Introduction to Botanical Inks and Paints

"In recent years I've become increasingly aware of the chemicals in my conventional paints, and have been curious about learning how to make my own natural inks and paints. This workshop covered everything I wanted to learn and much more, from the equipment needed and sourcing the plants and minerals, through to the various different processes for creating inks, water colour and oil paints. I have to say that making oil paints from pigments was my favourite process, deeply satisfying! I'm amazed at the vibrancy and range of colours we produced in one day and would highly recommend this workshop to anyone with an interest in painting, colour or natural art materials. It is clear that Claudia has a background in teaching, the day was meticulously planned yet relaxed and friendly and we had a very useful handout of information to take home with us, along with all our colour experiments. I can't wait to start foraging for colour and can feel my artwork heading in a new direction. Thank you Claudia for a wonderful day!"

Elka responded:

"Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a lovely, detailed review Alex, it is hugely appreciated. I'm delighted that you got so much out of the workshop, it was a pleasure to meet you, and to see you paining with the natural colours. I'm looking forward to seeing your new work! Very best wishes, Claudia."

Claire reviewed: Design and Weave a beautiful alpaca scarf at Burnt Fen Alpacas

"I've just had a thoroughly relaxing two days with Annie and her alpacas. It was a real joy to understand the process of weaving a scarf and listening to Annie about the alpacas, how their fleece is treated to turn it into yearn and dyed using plants from Annie's garden. The yurt was warm and cosy and the company great. I would highly recommend this course. :-) "
