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

"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."

Craft Workshops responded:

" Thank you Angela, I am so pleased you a wonderful day. I hope to see you again in the near future :)"

Kate Palmer-Marshallsay reviewed: Needle felting - woodland creature or bird, or other small animal: (beginners+)

"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 :)"

Craft Workshops responded:

" 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 :)"

"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 !"

Heather Somerville reviewed: Introduction to glass fusion Morning half day taster (beginners)

"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!"

"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."

Barbara Gaj reviewed: Introduction to container candle making half day in Henstridge near Stalbridge Dorset Somerset

"My partner and I attended Sally's brilliant course on candle making using containers. Sally is an excellent tutor. She covered all aspects of candle making from health and safety, materials needed, adding colour and fragrances and the processes. The session was informal giving everyone the opportunity to experiment and ask questions. Sally makes everyone feel relaxed and able to achieve. After the session Sally follows this up with an email providing information on our learning experience as well as links to information for buying resources. A great session. Many thanks Sally."

Gary Shepherd reviewed: Outside Workshop: Get started with DSLR creative photography(Beginners level)

"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."

Gilly Mills reviewed: Introduction to container candle making half day in Henstridge near Stalbridge Dorset Somerset

"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."
