Had the best day doing this course, the workshop was warm and inviting, and all covid precautions were in place.
Sally was very welcoming and made the day very enjoyable.
Everything was explained very clearly and instruction easy to follow.
It would be worth attending other needle felting classes before this one as you need an understanding of needle felting for this class.
Would highly recommend any of Sally's classes, they are always a pleasure.
Response from Craft Workshops:Thank you for your lovely review Leandah - it was a very enjoyable day and great to see you again. Your hare is fab and I look forward to helping you finish it off :)
I spent a wonderful day with Sally wet felting. I had such a great day and learnt so much. I’m now perfecting the skills I learnt and planning future projects. Sally has so much knowledge and is very good at passing this on in a a way that makes you want to do more. I can certainly recommend her courses.
Response from Craft Workshops:Thank you for your lovely review Jayne .
Sally Evan's style and approach to the workshop was well judged for me, a complete beginner to lino cutting. She balanced demonstration with encouragement to work alongside her very well. As an outcome from the workshop I had a linocut of a blackbird in the style (roughly!) of an artist I admire and very clear instruction on how to print, which I completed immediately following the workshop. My progress within two hours exceeded my expectation and I feel confident and motivated to go on more making.
Thank you, Sally
Response from Craft Workshops:Thank you Sally - what a lovely review :)
An inspirational and uplifting day. The workshop space was well organised and a feast of wonderfully coloured wool. Sally's instruction and guidance was clear and easy to follow, leaving all the room needed for personal creative response.
Response from Craft Workshops:Thank you Carol - you did very well with creating your felt piece and I hope to see you again in the future.
A Fantastic course with an excellent tutor.
I would happily recommend Sally’s photography course to one and all.
Response from Craft Workshops:Thank you Cyril, it was great to see you both. Stay in touch and hope to see you again soon.
Loved this workshop! Sally is so welcoming, great company and teacher. I loved working with clay silver and it has inspired me in so many ways. The day flew by and I was very happy with the work I produced. If you like your crafts you'll love this informative, informal and thoroughly enjoyable day. Thank you Sally and I look forward to working with you again soon. Tricia.
Response from Craft Workshops:Thank you Tricia - what a fab day! I am so pleased it has inspired you, and look forward to doing lots more with you :)
Sally is an experienced and intelligent teacher, gently organising you as needed through the day so you can go home with something you're happy with and new skills. She's a skilled facilitator, providing inspiration as well as all the necessary materials. My daughter and I enjoyed her relaxed company and had such a fun day together. My daughter chose something more technical to do so very happily went home with a project to finish. Sally was very helpful in providing guidance on tools and materials.
Social distancing and care were observed and we felt safe in the situation. Good directions, easy parking, clean toilet, warm room.
Response from Craft Workshops:Thank you Nell, I am so pleased you enjoyed your day together and had such fun. I hope to see you both again in the future :)
Another fun creative day with Sally Evans. Absolutely no worries regarding Covid-19 as she had strictly ensured our safety and made sure we adhered to the guidelines as we should.
I made some lovely earrings and a pendant, I learnt a lot and feel more confident as this was my second workshop for silver clay.
Already planning my third visit.
Thank you very much lovely Sally.
Response from Craft Workshops:Thank you Pam, lovely to see you again! Really pleased you had a fun creative day - it was a fantastic day and I look forward to seeing you again soon :)
I had a wonderful experience on the Learn to make Silver Clay Jewellery in a day for beginners. The tutor had planned the day out into the different stages of production. She had also put in place covid safe social distancing measures to enable me to feel safe. The room was set out with more than the recommended social distancing space, it was tidy, there was fresh air and ventilation, and a friendly welcome. Everything needed for the course was provided. I learnt the basic skills to go away and make pieces myself. I would really recommend this course as a excellent introduction to Silver Clay.
Response from Craft Workshops:Thank you Angela, I am so pleased you a wonderful day. I hope to see you again in the near future :)
This is one of the best courses I have ever attended! Sally is an inspirational teacher who clearly loves her craft and wants to share this love with others. I started the day with zero experience of needle felting and left with my very own small needle felted cat! Now I have the bug and want to create more and more animals. I will definitely attend another of Sally's courses :)
Response from Craft Workshops:Kate, thank you for your review. It was a truly wonderful day and I am really pleased you will be carrying on with needle felting. Look forward to seeing you again before too long :)
Didnt realise how technical it was to achieve great and consistent candles. Going to a class reminds you there's always something new to learn. Thanks Sally. Great session. Lovely candles to take home. We will definitely give it a go.
I had the most brilliant day and learnt so much.
Sally explained all the techniques clearly and I was able to create several pieces with the huge range of resources provided.
The atmosphere was relaxed and sociable - I’d love to come again and have already recommended it to friends.
Response from Craft Workshops:Thank you Cathy - it was a great day and we certainly did a lot of experimenting with wet felt techniques. I hope to see you again and thank you for recommending the workshops :)
I had a great day making my very first pieces of silver clay jewellery and Sally is a great teacher, encouraging, enthusiastic, supportive and knowledgable. The day sped by and I learnt so much, techniques and clever tricks of the trade and I took home two lovely pieces of Botanic Jewellery. The workshop is really well equipped and very safe. I have already booked the next course and am so looking forward to it.
Response from Craft Workshops:Thank you for coming and making it such a lovely day. Your pieces of jewellery are fantastic! I'm looking forward to seeing you again very soon!
I had a wonderful day with Sally and had arrived as a complete novice. Sally was super organised and all work stations were socially distanced, well stocked and ready to go - the day was structured and learnt a load more than expected and found I really enjoyed the process of making a wet felt picture - great day thanks again!!
Response from Craft Workshops:Thanks Jen - it was a lovely day, and I hope to see you again soon.
What a lovely morning! Relaxed, informative and fun. Sally is so knowledgeable and very funny, really positive and encouraging too so that nobody felt left behind. My only complaint is that it went by so fast, I was sad when it was over! Looking forward to coming again. Thank you, Sally.
Response from Craft Workshops:Thank you so much for your review Mel - much appreciated. It was a fabulous workshop which I am so glad you enjoyed. I look forward to seeing you again very soon :)
I absolutely loved this, I have done glass fusion before but, still brilliant.
Sally's great. I think she's going to have to put up with the fact that i will be a regular at her glasses. Not just glass fusion either.
Response from Craft Workshops:Thank you Linda - what a fabulous workshop we had! I thoroughly enjoyed it as well and look forward to seeing you again very soon :)
Had a fantastic morning with Sally who introduced me to glass fusing and other glass work ideas - she has the patience of a saint and I'm recommending her. We had such a good time - the fastest three hours I've ever spent. Looking forward to getting my pieces back. I've booked further sessions as it was such a rewarding experience.
Response from Craft Workshops:Thank you for your review Diane - and I am very much looking forward to seeing you again at the other workshops which you have booked :)
Such a lovely day . Because of COVID 19 there was just 2 of us on the course. We managed to keep our distance and we felt comfortable with the precautions on site.
The course was just everything I could wish for, I made 2 pairs of silver earrings . I’m wearing one of the pairs as I write this , they look very pretty . It’s such a easy going day .
My recommendation is - do it you won’t be sorry ! Sally is fab !
Sally is a great teacher. Her preparation for the course was very thorough. She gave me great notes for reference and lots of sensible, practical advice. She is planning a soap making course which I will certainly make sure to attend.
What a great workshop! A very chilled out morning spent learning a new craft - so good to be out again after being in Lockdown for months! All sensible social distancing and hygiene precautions were in place and Sally had even gone to the trouble of making a transparent face mask for herself so I could lipread what she was saying....thank you! Sally is a fab teacher and made the workshop great fun; I can't wait to see the final results of my efforts and I'm looking forward to the candle making course in 2 weeks time!
Response from Craft Workshops:Thank you Heather - it was lovely to have you along for the first Workshop back! Really enjoyed the morning and your glass fusion pieces are going to be great. Look forward to seeing you again very soon :)
