In-person course
Elisabeth Fraser - - #30520

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.

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!!

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.

Linda Wallis - - #30368

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.

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 !

I had a lovely time on this course. Sally was so respectful and diligent in following covid precautions so that anyone feeling wary need not worry at all. I'm thrilled with the pieces I made and can't wait to see them fired. I would thoroughly recommend this workshop, lots of fun and Sally explained everything so it seemed easy. Would definitely book again.

In-person course
Barbara Gaj - - #28787

Another great experience with Sally. This was my second experience at needle felting with Sally. I was able to reinforce first skills learnt and progress to new skills. I came away being able to make a cute bird. I was thrilled. Sally was very patient with my partner and supported him well. He was thrilled with his adorable robin. It was his first ever crafting experience. Many thanks Sally.

Having owned DSLR cameras for over 15 years I figured it was time to get off Auto settings! This course was fantastic. Sally not only gave us the technical know how but more importantly the practical reasons to use the different settings on the cameras. I would highly recommend this course and Sally.

In-person course
Gilly Mills - - #28300

I signed up for this workshop because I buy a lot of candles and thought it might be fun to try making my own for a change. It was such a good decision - Sally is the perfect tutor and makes the workshop a truly creative and informative occasion. I would recommend it for anyone who fancies trying something a little "crafty" - no previous experience required! I came home with three gorgeous smelling candles, one in my own cup and saucer which I am thrilled to display in my bathroom.

I attended Sally's course on needle felting a teddy bear. It was my first introduction to needle felting. I had a fantastic day with Sally and others. Sally is an excellent tutor - very welcoming, well organised, clear with her instructions and demonstrations. She has given me the confidence to continue. I'm already planning to attend new courses with Sally to develop my needle felting skills. Sally has been inspirational. I would recommend Sally's workshops.
