In-person course
Margaret Martin - - #36266

This is a brilliant course - I had the best day crafting and enjoyed every minute. Sally was very informative and helpful and encouraged me every step of the way - she has so much patience and is so knowledgeable about her crafts and very skilled. I came away with a lovely piece of art and fully intend to take up this mindfulness and relaxing craft. Thank you Sally for introducing me to Mandala Dot Painting.

Needle felting - woodland creature or bird, or other small animal: (beginners+) (Course inactive)

In-person course
Tessa Morrison - - #36033

My friend and I did Sally’s beginner needle felting course on Saturday, we both had such a fantastic day, it was so worth the 1.5 hour drive each way! My friend made a Robin and I did a blue tit. I don’t have an artistic bone in my body but quite quick I could see the shape emerging from a bit of fluffy wool! It’s very relaxing and we had a good laugh. Sally was such a warm and giving lady, really made the experience so great. X

Frankie & Philippa Smith - - #36000

We had a brilliant mother and daughter craft day with Sally. We wanted to spend so time together doing something creative and chanced on Sally's course. It was a fun-filled day producing a beautiful Christmas decoration. She explained every step well and was there with advice and encouragement along the way. I advise everyone to give this a go.

Craft Workshop: Learn to make silver art clay jewellery in a day (beginner)

In-person course
Patricia Eyre - - #36001

What a fantastic workshop and tutor!

I came into the workshop as a complete beginner and left with a huge sense of accomplishment and a gorgeous keepsake.

Sally provided clear explanations of each part of the process along with clear warning of how things could go wrong if not followed (nothing did!)

I am so pleased I chose to attend Sally's face to face workshop rather than struggling on my own with books or YouTube videos! I can't wait to start another piece😊

In-person course
Dagmara Ginter - - #35994

Thank you, Sally, for the brilliant workshop! I've learnt loads and gained confidence in shooting in aperture priority mode. The workshop was organised really well - lots of theory to take in but with enough time to practise. And even the weather behaved itself.

Introduction to glass fusion Morning half day taster (beginners)

In-person course
Jacky - - #35962

Sally is really good at giving you support where it's needed and leaving you to get on if you're doing ok. I knew nothing about glass fusion and was really nervous. Sally built on my love of the sea and guided me to what was possible. I've worked with glass in the past but Sally gave me more confidence than anyone else. Thoroughly recommend her as a tutor. Thanks Sally.

Response from Craft Workshops:

Thank you for your lovely review Jacky - I am so pleased your confidence grew in the workshop (and your fused glass pieces are lovely!). I look forward seeing you again in the workshop.

Sue Baker - - #35814

What a great starter course.
Sally was so informative and nothing was too much trouble. She took the time to explain everything so even beginners could make lovely pieces of Fused glass.
Can't wait to do an intermediate course with her.
Thanks for a lovely day.

Response from Craft Workshops:

Thank you Sue - what a fab session! Look forward to seeing you when you collect your glass. And look forward to seeing you on an intermediate/improver session soon :)

Sally made it very easy to understand the basics and from there to get into the creative process. Very quickly I found myself quite absorbed and the time flew by. Great fun and I would heartily recommend the workshop.

Angela Hughes - - #35596

Sally was a brilliant tutor and her enthusiasm for working with glass was infectious. She gave us lots of information in an easily understood way and was very generous with her help and ideas. She really wanted to get the best from her students. The morning flew past and I left with a great sense of achievement. I am looking forward to booking more workshops with Sally and cannot recommend her highly enough.

Response from Craft Workshops:

In-person course
Hilary Ann Holt - - #35549

I attended the course - an Introduction to stained glass for complete beginners (copper foil method) and very successfully made a beautiful gnome.
I was a complete beginner. Sally was extremely attentive and I felt very guided by her throughout the day. Many of the skills needed to make the stained glass gnome were very intricate and as the group was small, Sally was always on-hand to help.
We had a very enjoyable time and left Sally's workshop feeling very proud.

Response from Craft Workshops:

Thank you Hilary - we did have a lovely day and your stained glass was amazing! From total beginner to completed gnome decoration in a day - well done :)
