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

"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."

Craft Workshops responded:

" 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 :)"

Jill Bramley reviewed: Wet felting workshop: Introduction to picture making in Henstridge near Stalbridge Dorset & Somerset

"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."

Craft Workshops responded:

" 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 :)"

Liz wilson reviewed: Introduction to making mosaics (Beginner level)

"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 ?❤️?"

Craft Workshops responded:

" 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 :)"

"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.

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,"

Barbara Rennie reviewed: Craft Workshop: Learn to dye fleece with natural dyes in a day

"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."

Craft Workshops responded:

" Thank you Barbara - so pleased you found this workshop so worthwhile. Look forward to seeing you in the workshop again soon :)"

Carrie & chris James reviewed: Craft Workshop: Learn to make silver art clay jewellery in a day (beginner)

"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!"

Craft Workshops responded:

" Thank you - it was great to meet you both and I am really pleased you enjoyed your Workshop. Look forward to seeing you soon. Sally"

rosemary ann westlake reviewed: Craft Workshop: Learn to nuno felt (beginners and intermediates)

"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!"

Craft Workshops responded:

" 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. I look forward to seeing you (and your art) again very soon - can't wait to see how you develop it from here on. Sally"

"Absolutely Brilliant! ***** I really enjoyed my day and introduction into Silver Clay Jewellery making. Sally was a fabulous tutor with excellent knowledge and communication skills.

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

"Not only is this a fabulous art to learn, but you also have the joy of an exceptional teacher. I've done several courses of differing types relating to crafts / jewellery and metalwork but rarely have I had the support and care of someone like Sally. She understood the capability of the individuals in our very lovely class and helped them to create beautiful items. I will be back for an intermediate / advanced course as and when I improve my skills. Delightful day and very happy with my creations. Thank you."

Craft Workshops responded:

" Thank you for your lovely review Alyssa - it was a pleasure to have everyone in the workshop in such a friendly, supportive group. And you all made such lovely, individual pieces too. Look forward to seeing you again soon! Sally"

Kathy and Phili reviewed: Introduction to glass fusion Morning half day taster (beginners)

"We had a fabulous introduction to glass fusion with Sally. She is an amazing teacher, very easy going and made the session so much fun. She showed us lots of techniques which we will certainly sign up for another session ! Sally was very good at guiding us in the right direction explaining what the different glass types would produce after fusion.The half day passed so quickly but we’re looking forward to seeing our finished pieces. We both did 2 stand alone coasters each but there was plenty of opportunity to do other things. We stayed simple until next time ! We would highly recommend this course to anyone wanting to have a go at trying glass fusion."

Craft Workshops responded:

" Thank you Kathy & Phili - it was a really enjoyable session and I am pleased you loved your fused glass light catchers when you collected them :) Look forward to seeing you both again, Sally"

"An excellent introduction to silver clay jewellery. Sally helped us to design and create our silver pendants. She guided us through the process with humour and patience! Considering that we had no previous experience we came away with very wearable and unique pieces. Thank you Sally."

Craft Workshops responded:

" Thank you Lorraine - it was great to meet you both. Thank you for making the day so enjoyable. It was great to see your finished pieces at the end of the workshop - you both really worked hard to make some unique, fantastic pendants which I hope you will both wear and treasure. Sally"
