What a brilliant silver clay workshop experience I had with Sally. She is so knowledgeable and a fun, patient teacher... also just great company. I was encouraged to have my own ideas right from the start rather than following one brief of what you should make and she gave lots of inspiration and ideas for that. I learnt more than I thought I would in one day and came away with something that I really love and like to wear. So I can highly recommend Sally's beginners workshop to anyone wanting to discover the magic of silver clay in a relaxed and friendly environment. Thank you Sally and I hope to see you again.
Response from Craft Workshops:Thank you for your fantastic review Tamsin - a thoroughly enjoyable and productive workshop. Your finished piece was lovely and I am looking forward to seeing what you create next :)
A lovely relaxing creative day making little woodland creatures.
Sally was great at explaining the technique and supported throughout the whole process; there was no waiting around for help.
I'm signing up now for my next class!
Response from Craft Workshops:Thank you Anne-Louise - what a lovely day it was! Thank you for booking - looking forward to seeing you again in the Workshop in the near future :)
Sally made the needle felting day great fun. She gave lots of time and friendly help to all 3 learners and ensured we all made animals we were pleased with. She happily shared her experience and there were lots of beautiful materials to have fun and play with. Thank you very much Sally
Response from Craft Workshops:Thank you Debra - it was a very enjoyable day and you all made some lovely needle-felt creatures and birds, full of character and individuality. Look forward to seeing you again soon! :)
Thank you so much Sally, the course was excellent. We learnt such a lot from you and technical stuff was explained in an easy to understand way and no question was too daft to ask! I am looking forward to building on the skills you have given me and gaining in confidence with using my camera more creatively. It was great to spend the day with such a lovely group of ladies too. Thank you once again.
Response from Craft Workshops:Thank you Katy - looking forward to seeing your creative photography develop in the coming weeks and months!
Thank you so much Sally for such an informative and enjoyable day. I learnt so much in a short space of time and am looking forward to practising all the different aspects we covered! The venue was perfect and our group of 4 enabled social distancing as well as being an ideal size to maximise our learning opportunities. All the best Sally and I hope to see you on another course soon!
Response from Craft Workshops:Thank you Sharon - look forward to seeing you in the Workshop again soon :)
I just did this workshop with Sally. It was fantastic. Everything and more that I could have hoped for. Well organised, very informative and good fun. The setting is excellent, plenty of parking, clean loo and covid safe. I can’t recommend this highly enough. I will be back for more! Thank you Sally for a brilliant day :)
Response from Craft Workshops:Thank you Antje - it was great to meet you and I'm really pleased you enjoyed the day. Look forward to seeing you again in the workshop :)
I really enjoyed my day with Sally. I was made to feel welcome immediately and felt very comfortable and safe in the workshop surroundings. I had never done any felting before but we went through the process together at a pace which suited the participants and I now feel I could have a go on my own.
I liked the fact that most of the utensils were reused/recycled and readily available so that you would not have to invest heavily to get started.
At the end of the Worksop I came away with a piece which I am very happy to display in my home.
I would readily recommend this course.
Response from Craft Workshops:Thank you Jill - so glad you enjoyed your day and your finished wet felt picture is a delight. Look forward to seeing what you create next :)
Absolutely loved this day! It is my first ever crafting course and it was great!
Sally is so welcoming, friendly , helpful and of course knowledgeable.
Sally creates a very relaxed atmosphere but we got lots done and we all managed to create some really good results and I must say, I was thrilled with mine and it has inspired me to do more at home and will definitely be booking other courses with Sally. The facilities are great and there were lots of resources to use with Sally on hand to give gentle advice and guidance. All round super day 😜❤️👍
Response from Craft Workshops:Thank you Liz - I'm pleased you enjoyed the Workshop so much :) You created a fabulous mosaic and I am looking forward to seeing what you make next! Many thanks for booking with me and I look forward to seeing you in the Workshop again soon :)
Such a fun course! Really well structured and paced according to the attendees. Sally is not only a great teacher but also good company. Came home with a pair of earrings and a new hobby!
Response from Craft Workshops:Thank you Catherine - so pleased you enjoyed the Workshop and found it so useful. Looking forward to seeing what you make next with your new skills!
My daughter and I attended the Silver Clay beginners workshop in June with Sally. We both had a lovely time and came home with some lovely pendants. The course was structured at just the right pace and Sally gave individual attention to both of us when needed. I would definitely recommend this course, it was a very fun day out with the bonus of some beautiful jewellery to take home at the end of it. Thank you Sally,
Response from Craft Workshops:Thank you Jacqui - so pleased you both enjoyed the Workshop day and have your fabulous pendants too! Look forward to seeing you again in the workshop :)
Just attended this day. Well planned and informative day. Lots of opportunities to be hands on. Came away with 100g of dyed wool and lots of infirmation.
Sally put a huge amount of effort into the preparation of the dyes, so we had lots of opportunities to try different ones. Well worth it.
Response from Craft Workshops:Thank you Barbara - so pleased you found this workshop so worthwhile. Look forward to seeing you in the workshop again soon :)
Really enjoyed this hands on , friendly course. Its amazing what you can make in just one day. Sally is a great teacher and I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants to learn a new skill.
Response from Craft Workshops:Thank you Sian - thank you for coming to the Workshop. Looking forward to seeing you in the workshop again soon :)
A friendly and safe environment in which to learn a new skill. Sally made me feel at ease, was patient and excellent in teaching the art of creating a mosaic. I was very pleased with the results and intend to continue to experiment with the craft. I can thoroughly recommend Sally's Course. Well worth the journey from West Wales. Many Thanks!
Response from Craft Workshops:Thank you Tracey - I am really pleased you enjoyed the Workshop. I look forward to seeing what you make next with your new mosaics skills.
I recently attended the silver clay workshop and had a wonderful day. Loved learning the process and being guided expertly by a friendly and experienced teacher. I was delighted with what I made and hope to have a go at home too. I’d recommend it to anyone who enjoys being creative and no previous knowledge necessary. Thankyou. Hope to go again one day.
Response from Craft Workshops:Thank you - I am pleased you enjoyed your Workshop. Look forward to seeing you again soon,
I had a lovely chilled Sunday morning at the beginners glass fusion workshop. Sally is a lovely lady who is knowledgeable and a fabulous tutor. I am so looking forward to seeing the finished results. Thank you so much.
Response from Craft Workshops:Thank you - I am pleased you enjoyed your glass fusion introductory session. Look forward to seeing you in the workshop again soon,
We have just returned home having had a wonderful and informative workshop with Sally. Great efforts had been made to keep everyone Covid safe and the same attention to detail had been put into ensuring everyone got the most out of their time regardless of confidence or experience. The course allowed us to be creative with our own ideas rather than following a set piece so we all gained knowledge from each other. We highly recommend Sally as an Instructor and fully intend to be back soon for more!
Response from Craft Workshops:Thank you - it was great to meet you both and I am really pleased you enjoyed your Workshop. Look forward to seeing you soon.
Having enjoyed a day acquiring the basic skills of wet felting with Sally I couldn't wait to return and tackle Nuno felting. I expected basic tuition but the day was structured specifically for my personal ambitions and dilemmas. I came away with an understanding of the basic techniques of nuno, but so, so much more. I learnt how to create raised forms which I can incorporate into my usual practice as a textile artist and a whole raft of problems I have encountered were solved. The day was exciting with achieving a good understanding of the basics but having my eyes opened to a new range of possibilities for future work as well, both with felting and my normal textile art. It was an exhausting but exciting day, tailored to my specific needs and I came away bursting with new ideas and skills, and the confidence to continue on my own. And if I hit problems I know I have Sally's support to guide me through. A wonderful day!
Response from Craft Workshops:Thank you Rosemary - I am very excited to see more of your fibre art and very pleased to have been able to help with some issues, guidance and techniques.
Excellent, well run course. Lovely and relaxed atmosphere and really learnt a lot about wet felting. The first course I had attended with Sally and would highly recommend it. Can't wait until the next one.
Response from Craft Workshops:Thank You Sian! Your wet felted bowl and glasses case were both really lovely - great choices of colours and embellishments. Looking forward to seeing you again soon :)
What a fantastic day i had making jewellery today, exceptional tutoring from a very knowledgeable lady, Sally was not only informative but fun.
I actually made something i can wear! I would say to anyone to try this course, i learned so much and Sally is very patient i will definitely be coming back!
Response from Craft Workshops:Thank you Nicki - it was a lovely day and you made a really great pendant. Look forward to seeing you again soon I hope :)
Brilliant course, I really enjoyed it!! I managed to make something I'm really pleased to wear of a much higher quality than I expected due to the great teaching along with inspirational help on ideas. Thank you for a great day, to be highly recommended
Response from Craft Workshops:Thank you Christine! And what a lovely workshop we had. You made an amazing pendant and I am really pleased you will be enjoying wearing it. Hope to see you again soon, Sally
