Had a really lovely day with Helen making fused glass creations. Helen is amazing, giving explanations about different types of glass etc and is always on hand to guide or advise you. She is so calm and caring and wants her to explore your creativity. Was a really fantastic day, would do again and would definitely recommend it to anyone....

Gerry has a great set up for his wood carving courses. Covid principles and health and safety adherence was up front. Great hospitality was on offer.

You are an inspirational teacher and presented the subject in a relaxed and informed way offering lots of encouragement and support so that I was able to proudly complete my picture and frame it to take home. I will definitely...

I'm reasonably confident with my sewing machine thanks to the Sew Forest of Dean "Learn to Love Your Sewing Machine" course, but was worried I wasn't precise enough to do patchwork. She's helped me with my cutting and piecing skills, and I've now made cushions, and a baby quilt. Feel like I'm now ready to tackle my first grown up...

Jen is an excellent teacher, with a passion for needlework that's infectious. She explains things very clearly, has endless patience & creativity, and will get you excited to use your sewing machine! Love going to the studio for some sewcialising, and looking forward to my next course. Highly recommend this lovely lady.

A fantastic day creating garden flowers. This is our fourth visit to The Forge, each time has been thoroughly exhilarating and exhausting but extremely satisfying. The instruction and support from Adrien and Andy is excellent. In addition to the friendly atmosphere is the amazing food provided by Debbie. I would highly recommend this course to anyone.

Had the best 1/2 day pottery session. Despite my mother being a bit of a natural on her first attempt at hand throwing (very frustrating), we both made some great pieces that I’m looking forward to using once fully finished. Louise was great, taking the booking very last minute and making us feel very welcome. I can’t recommend this course...

I recently joined Becky for a one to one sewing day at her studio in Wallingford. I took a pair of cropped trousers which I wanted to recreate, but make them longer. She helped me to take an accurate pattern from the existing pair, extending it as required, and step by step we made a new pair! I choose a...
