I cannot thank Annette enough for a wonderful, relaxing afternoon spent learning Powertex with my daughter. Annette is so patient, kind and knowledgable. No only did we pick up some great skills but came away with a beautiful piece of artwork. Thanks so much- we will definitely be back for more experiences.

Annette is a very talented instructor who is very patient and happy to explain and is there to help if you get into difficulties. This is the 2nd full day that my friend Sue and I have done and we are planning our next. Always a warm welcome plenty of refreshments delivered by her lovely husband George.

Had a fantastic afternoon here with the family as a birthday treat. Annette has the most amazing workspace with all her crafty creations in the room. Great course, great tutor and very much made to feel welcome. Drinks flowing all afternoon and even got a cake with candle in it for my birthday. Lovely. Highly recommended. Thank you Annette for a fabulous day.

What an absolute delight spending the day with Annette. Her craft room is a magical wonderland of characters and art that she has created and she has even a storyline behind some of them. She was so calm and patient with me, gently guiding me with inspirations and cups of tea to making a lovely figurine that I'm so pleased with and proud of.
I will gladly be recommending her to all and everyone.
The dear friend who got me the voucher for my birthday and I are planning to go see her again and to come away inspired and buzzing again.
She's a lovely,lovely skilled woman.See you soon Annette and thank you so very much for all you did. X
P.S. You also get to have the company of her smashing dogs.

Annette is a fabulous teacher. Very patient and explained everything really well. This is the third workshop I have done with her and each one has been brilliant. I'd recommend Powertex as a wonderful medium for anyone of any ability. I would say I'm rubbish at art but I've been delighted with all 3 pieces. Latest one a European figure, worth every penny and a super day. Great cake too!

This class was amazing. Annette is so friendly and welcoming and has a wealth of knowledge. I took my mum for her birthday and she really enjoyed herself in the relaxed and fun atmosphere.
Annette was so helpful and lovely we really felt at home. Me and mum were so happy with our sculptures afterwards. We also had a cake for my mum's birthday with candles as well, which was such a thoughtful extra touch that meant a lot to us both. We are hoping to go again. Thanks so much Annette, you are wonderful.

Had a lovely day with Annette, it was great. I had never done anything like Powertex before and it was explained in every detail. I would recommend this course to anyone and I can assure them that they won’t be disappointed; and I will be doing it again.
Thanks a million Annette

This course gave me the chance to be messy and creative with a completely new craft, and I loved it! Annette is a wonderful tutor and such a creative soul, it was lovely spending the morning learning from her, seeing her work, and her studio space is very enviable!! I will definitely be doing more with Powertex in the future and recommend this workshop to anyone who just fancies being creative and making something unique!

I had a wonderful time on this introductory course. I attended knowing barely anything about powertex and with no firm idea about any designs i wanted to produce.
Annette was wonderfully informative and the class split between instruction and practical was spot on. The atmosphere was great and there was loads of choice to make something really creative rather than making a prescribed design. I would heartily recommend.

I would highly recommend going on this 'Introduction to Powertex' with Annette. She is such a wonderful tutor with so passionate about what she does.
Thanks Annette for a fantastic workshop, we've come away with so many ideas and can't wait to get started - the possibilities are endless.......

I attended a 1 to 1 course with Annette recently and I had a wonderful, productive day. Because it was only the two of us, I was able to indulge my creativity and Annette was game for it and encouraged me to take my idea to the limit. She instinctively knew what my vision was and could suggest suitable materials and techniques that would bring out the best. I completed my sculptured figure of the Doge by the end of the day and I am ecstatic about him. I am keen to use this technique again. Annette has undoubtedly fired me up with new ideas.

I had a lovely time on this workshop last Saturday. Annette is so welcoming and has a wonderful space in her studio with inspiration at every turn! She is so knowledgeable and passionate about her medium. The time flew by and I was really pleased with my finished piece.

I cannot recommend this introductory course highly enough. Annette is generous with her time, knowledge and materials. I did not expect to achieve a completed piece in such a short amount of time. Beware this craft is highly addictive and I'm already excited to sign up to one of Annette's full workshops.

I really enjoyed this course. Despite arriving late Annette still guided me through the techniques required skilfully and I completed a dragonfly garden ornament during just a half day session. I was amazed at how it was possible to make something so presentable in such a short time and in a lovely purpose built room with lots of examples of Powertex creations for inspiration. I also came away with a basic Powertex kit for a reasonable price and am looking forward to make more outdoor ornaments. Thank you Annette.

Great teacher, so engaging, absolutely loved the workshop and so pleased with the results, never felt at all rushed, had plenty of time to play with the materials and create something I'm proud of. Highly recommend but be warned, this medium is very addictive and you'll be wanting to come back and learn more, I know I am.
