Rachel Davies reviewed: Lampshade Making Workshop with Clare Cosens

"Ive just made a really proffessional lampshade! Cant believe it! And I used an cross stitched embroidered table cloth that was my Grandmothers , so its a vintage piece now with real meaning. I would never have tried this on my own. Started with tea and biscuits in Clares pretty white studio, and looked at previously created lampshades and we considered the pattern and how to keep it straight! More tea and biscuits while we worked through the process with music on and chatting to each other. There were tips Clare knew that would not have been in kit instructions, as she's made hundreds of lampshades. Im now very proud of my new shade and its on the landing! Thankyou Clare."

Clare Cosens Designs responded:

" I’m glad you enjoyed the workshop Rachel. Your lampshade is beautiful. I would never of thought of using a vintage embroidered table cloth, such a great idea and lovely sentiment."

Karen Beard-Jones reviewed: Mixed Media workshop with Clare Cosens

"Very enjoyable couple of hours spent at Clare Cosens Multimedia Workshop on the 2st October. Friendly and informative Clare kept a good balance between showing us techniques and making suggestions whilst allowing us to "do our own thing." Thoroughly enjoyed the session from start to finish. I will be booking another course with Clare in the future ?"

Denise Smith reviewed: Mixed Media workshop with Clare Cosens

"Had a really great time on this mixed media workshop. I had a vague idea as to what I wanted to do, but Clare gave the much needed advice on how to produce my end product. We were given plenty of materials to choose from , and Clare expertly advised us how to use them. It was a lovely relaxed atmosphere and a fun morning . I would highly recommend doing this course , especially if you have done Clare's Gelli plate workshop, you will be amazed what you can produce with Clare's valuable assistance. "

Clare Cosens Designs responded:

" I’m really pleased that you enjoyed the mixed media workshop. Your toadstool design looked fab, it was really good to see your finished artwork with the added toadstools. Great addition!"
