As a fan of all kinds of crafts, I received the beginners silver clay workshop course as birthday present. It was an excellent day and the perfect present idea. The class was small, Sally was an excellent and enthusiastic tutor and silver clay a fantastic medium allowing us to create all kinds of beautiful and varied pieces. Everyone left at the end of the day very proud of their finished work and with lots of top money saving tips on how to continue to use silver clay.
Definitely one of the best crafting courses I have attended. Highly recommended.
I can't thank Sally for this course enough, it opened my eyes to what I am able to achieve with my camera. A well balanced course, both informal yet professional with easy steps to help you get to grips with the technology you're learning. Beautiful venue and a fantastic price!
Ready for the next level! X
This course helped me to understand my camera more and use it more confidently and creatively. Sally is very knowledgable and has time to ensure everyone is learning about their own camera. The venue is great for creativity and the ambience Sally creates is relaxed and friendly. I would definitely recommend this course
Absolutely brilliant day, I would highly recommend to beginners. Set at a great venue with lots of interesting subject matter to photograph. Sally was informal and makes you feel relaxed as soon as you arrive. Great balance of technical vs practical throughout the day. I came away feeling inspired and can already see a difference in my photographs.
Fabulous day spent learning not only about my camera (without all the confusing technical terms) but about how to achieve a great photograph using the technology within the camera.
Nice small group and very relaxed. Sally is very patient and a great teacher. I would highly recommend this one day course, it's excellent for the beginner and for those with a little knowledge
Thrilling day spent in a small group full of motivation and with all the help and support from our great teacher, Sally. Making my first piece of jewellery (a pendant) starting from scratch... a lot accomplished in just 1 day. Won't be my last jewellery creation for sure. Eager to any upcoming courses with Sally. This is just the beginning of a great new hobby!
Today I had a wonderful day learning to work with silver clay.
I did not have any expectations as I hadn't done anything like this before. Sally was fab and supported me in coming up with my very own design for a necklace pendant.
I even managed to come out with a small pair of earrings too as I had more than enough clay.
Excellent day, great value for money. I would thoroughly recommend and will be returning.
Really good introduction to learning to use silver clay! Sally was very attentive to each of us and I came away with a lovely matching set of a pendant and earrings which was a wonderful souvenir of a wonderful day :) she also had lots of tips and tricks for someone wanting to start doing it for themselves with cheaper alternatives to marketed silver clay tools which can be quite pricey! All in all an amazing day and a good introduction to the wonder that is silver clay!
Earlier this year I attended one of Sally’s needle felting courses and loved it! Last Saturday a friend and I did the wet felting course and loved it equally as much!
Sally is a wonderful teacher, very patient and encouraging, with a really good sense of humour! We all went home with a picture, a small pot and a bowl ( mine not really a bowl but a nice piece of felt!!) I would definitely recommend Sally’s courses and will be booking more in the future.
Thank you Sally.
I attended this course on 13th July 2019 as a follow on to a previous needle felting day with Sally to refresh the process of both needle and wet felting.
It is the third course I have done with Sally and I cannot recommend them enough. It is a very relaxed small group session which means that Sally is able to offer everyone individual tuition as needed.
She provides a warm and welcoming atmosphere along with a good sense of humour. Whether you are a beginner or more experienced there is alway something to learn from Sally’s expertise and she is happy to share all her knowledge openly and encourages you to continue with your chosen craft.
Each day offers a variety of projects so everyone can have a choice and work at their own speed which is brilliant rather than all doing the same thing.
I recommend Sally’s courses and will be booking more in the future and attending her Sunday follow up craft sessions.
I loved this course. I made something that I'm excited to wear and I'm fired up ready for the next level. I hope for a course soon. Sally is passionate about the subject and it rubs off. We were all nervous about messing it up but were soon put at ease and we all made amazing items.
Thank you Sally for making it so easy and much less scary at home to continue,..
What a fantastic day! I had never even heard of, let alone used, silver clay before booking onto this course. Sally packed a huge amount into the day, and I feel a lot more knowledgeable and have picked up a new skill and taken home some beautiful earrings as well. And into the bargain she's a lovely, friendly and approachable tutor as well - even when dealing with someone as stressy as me!
Had a brilliant day doing this course. Sally tailored her teaching to meet the needs of those completely new to crochet and those with some experience. I went after trying (unsuccessfully) to learn crochet from YouTube so I was a complete beginner and I'm now obsessed! I went straight to the craft shop and got more supplies and my technique has improved dramatically over the last couple of days. Would recommend this to anyone. It was a relaxed atmosphere and everyone else on the course was lovely too.
Our day yesterday was brilliant. The group number was good, the venue lovely and Sally herself was a kind, welcoming and patient tutor. Our day was marked by lots of laughter which for me means participants were relaxed, and consequently in a good place to learn. Acquiring any new skill is initially a challenge but Sally took away the fear and was incredibly patient. I am already looking at booking my next course with her and can’t wait for it. Five star in every way!
I couldn't believe at the start of day when Sally showed us examples of pieces we could do that a beginner could achieve it. But we did! The day was amazing; good company and Sally was happy to help and answer all our questions, guiding us to make our finished pieces.
I would recommend this to anyone interested in silver clay and will be looking at further courses run by Sally in the future.
Wow! What a great day, I learnt loads. Sally was really lovely, she let us go our own way with loads of encouragement. Will definitely go again to learn more, it's great to have someone that knows how to point you in the right direction, also very patient. Thanks Sally you're a star....
Thank you for a most enjoyable day! No pressure on any of us and lots of patience given. Lovely atmosphere and constant flow of tea, coffee, biscuits and even bowls of fruit.
We all left with lovely..if not perfect mosaics in different designs and colours.
Highly recommend. Will certainly be back again.
Very best wishes for future success
Thankyou Sally for an excellent day, making my first piece of mosaic art.
I would highly recommend Sally's courses, a lovely small group and full of lots of ideas. Sally was so helpful and informative, all tools and materials are provided plus tea, coffee, biscuits and fruit. Lots of parking and disabled access. Will buy gift vouchers for birthday present etc. Sally also does other courses, which I will definitely try .
This course is fantastic in all respects. Sally provided all materials necessary (and more) for you to be able to produce a really substantial piece of art. She is a talented tutor who guided me expertly through each stage, and insisted on supplying me with tea and coffee all day and wouldn’t even let me clear up. The premises were ideal and we had a lovely self contained room for us to work.
All in all, an fabulous day, excellent value and I came away with a new skill I am thrilled about.
Will be booking on another course soon!
Thank you Sally x
Such a great day learning to make a mosaic. Sally is very patient and informative and it was a great venue with everything to hand. I will be booking on some more courses and can thoroughly recommend them to anyone who wants to try some crafts!
