September Chapelle reviewed: Needle felting - woodland creature or bird, or other small animal: (beginners+)

"I came home from this course absolutely buzzing and I was so proud of my first needle felted creature; I made a cute mole in a plant pot with a flower. Sally was very patient with us all and made you feel relaxed and confident that you could do it. Sally gave thorough explanations of the various techniques needed and I definitely feel that I could tackle another project on my own. All in all, a thoroughly enjoyable day and I had a lovely little friend to take home with me. Thanks, Sally! ?"

Craft Workshops responded:

" You are very welcome September - I am so pleased you learnt the skills to confidently carry on at home, and also enjoyed the day. Your mole in the flower pot was lovey - and the attention to detail with adding the ladybird was fantastic :) See you again soon, Sally"

"Great one day workshop which was really hands-on and I was able to go home with 2 lovely pairs of silver earrings. Sally is very helpful and an excellent communicator and the whole day just flew by. Would definitely recommend this course to anyone who wants to have a go at using silver art clay."

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

"A fantastic day spent under Sally’s expert tuition on the Silver Clay Jewellery Workshop. Sally is extremely knowledgeable and friendly and made the day a fun and rewarding experience. It was amazing to be part of the ‘magic’ that unfolded over the course of the day and wear jewellery home that I had made. Very satisfying indeed and can’t wait to get kitted out to create more jewellery at home (Sally offers great advice on how to keep costs to a minimum). Go and experience the magic for yourself, you’ll have a great day!"

Craft Workshops responded:

" Thank you for your review Beccy - I am so glad you enjoyed your day and are going to do more silver art clay making at home. It really is magic isn't it?! :) Hope to see you again soon, Sally"

Susan moffat reviewed: Introduction to making mosaics (Beginner level)

"Really enjoyed this mosaic day. Sally made it a very informative and relaxing day with a small group of us. She gave individual support and advice as needed but allowed us to be as creative as we wanted. We had lots of different materials to use and everyone completed at least one item to take home. Sally has a good sense of humour and created a very interesting workshop. Good to be able to help ourselves to tea ( as well as biscuits!!) as we needed. Definitely recommend mosaic workshop and just signed up for felting ."

Craft Workshops responded:

" Thank you for your review Susan - it was lovely to meet you and I am looking forward to catching up with you again over some felting (and tea and biccies!)."

Sonya reviewed: Craft in company: group in Henstridge nr Stalbridge Somerset & Dorset. Bring any craft and/or book a craft taster session from a selection.

"A great opportunity to spend a relaxed day with other people who are working on various craft projects, or wishing to try something different. We had lino-cutting, crochet and needle felting on the go and Sally was on hand with plenty of practical help, tips and encouragement for all of us. I can thoroughly recommend this very enjoyable 'crafty' get together!"

Craft Workshops responded:

" Thank you Sonya - it's really good to be able to set time aside to craft and I find it very inspiring to see the variety of items which people are making. All while enjoying tea & biccies with good company!"

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

"Excellent day. Sally is very friendly and has so many tips and hints to share in addition to the structure that ensures everyone makes something to be proud of. She offers so many ideas of how to set up cheaply at home without spending on specialist equipment. She also has boxes full of stuff to have a go with, so things were covered that wont always be offered on a beginners day. Also loads of different polishes and equipment that again often dont get hands on experience with. Def feel i can continue with this with what i learnt."

Craft Workshops responded:

" Thank you for your review of the workshop Lyn - it was a action-packed day and I am really glad you enjoyed it as well as feeling you learnt lots to implement at home. Hope to see you again, Sally"

Kate Pritchard reviewed: Introduction to making mosaics (Beginner level)

"My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our mosaic workshop with Sally. It was our first attempts at mosaic and Sally was very patient and encouraging throughout the day. All the tools and materials required were supplied on the day. There was a lovely small friendly group of ladies of all abilities and Sally was able to give us all a little help and advise where necessary. Would highly recommend this course with Sally to anyone who is interested in starting out in mosaics or who would just like to have an enjoyable day out doing something different."

Kip reviewed: Introduction to making mosaics (Beginner level)

"Had a lovely day creating the mosaics with Sally, her teaching style makes you feel that you can do anything. With her help and some input from the other lovely participants I made two mosaics that I was proud of. Plenty of drinks and biscuits to keep us going and we even got a chocolate snowman each! Thank you."

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

"This workshop is a great opportunity to learn all the basics to produce your first piece of silver clay jewellery. Sally is an encouraging and knowledgeable tutor who explains each step of the process in a clear way. The length of the workshop and small class size allows time to learn and make without feeling rushed. Good value for money and great fun. Come on your own or with a friend to enjoy a relaxed yet productive day."

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

"The beginners silver clay workshop was a great introduction to get me started using metal clay. Sally was great at answering questions about the possibilities when using the silver clay and was really good at creating a fun and friendly environment. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone who has thought of using this medium but isn’t sure where to start. A fun day that was really great value."

Alison Martin reviewed: Outside Workshop: Get started with DSLR creative photography(Beginners level)

"This was a relaxed group, there was a lot to take in, in a short time, sally made it easy to understand all the camera functions and didn’t mind going back over things. I feel I gained confidence in my ability to use my camera to its best. I would recommend this course to complete beginners or someone who has a little knowledge but wants to learn more about composition, light etc"

Sonya Ward reviewed: Needle felting - woodland creature or bird, or other small animal: (beginners+)

"Thank you Sally for a very enjoyable day learning needle felting techniques. I thought I would find it difficult but with Sally's clear explanation, demonstration and encouragement I was able to make a cheeky little robin at my first attempt. It was a very relaxed day with plenty of coffee, biscuits and laughs along the way. I will definitely be booking on a future course and hopefully bringing a friend too."

Prue Curtis reviewed: Needle felting - woodland creature or bird, or other small animal: (beginners+)

"Another great day, this time learning needle felting. Sally was very patient and encouraging with our efforts. Everything was provided, even tea and coffee, and the work taken at our own pace so that we all came away with a lovely chirpy robin. Sally is an excellent teacher and I shall be going back for more very soon."

Pam Hansford reviewed: Introduction to making mosaics (Beginner level)

Elaine Wattam reviewed: Introduction to making mosaics (Beginner level)

"This was a really enjoyable course. Sally is a talented and excellent teacher, and very patient and helpful, who also encourages you to use your own ideas, and supports you with these. The day went too quickly, and lots of ground was covered, I think Sally quickly picks up your level and works with you. She has a range of materials and tools and everything you need is provided. I thought the course was excellent value, and in a good venue. I cannot recommend the beginners mosaics course enough really. I will definitely go on another. I am now looking at a photography one, and the lino cutting looks appealing too. It was a very enjoyable way to spend a day creating in a very relaxed atmosphere. I came away with something I had made, and a clear inspiration for what I may do next, when I gain a few more skills. Excellent!!"

prue reviewed: Wet felting workshop: introduction to 3D construction for Bowls, Pods and Bags in Henstridge near Stalbridge, Somerset and Dorset

"A thoroughly satisfying and informative workshop. Thank you Sally for a great session wet felting. I had no idea how to do it before but Sally was patient, encouraging and a great teacher. The day went very swiftly and after as much tea or coffee as we wanted, plus all the materials we needed, we all were very successful with our final pieces. I loved the day and would definitely do another."

Craft Workshops responded:

" Thank you for coming to the wet felting workshop Prue - really enjoyed having you in the group. The pieces which you went home with were lovely! Look forward to seeing you again soon."

Manjulaa reviewed: Wet felting workshop: introduction to 3D construction for Bowls, Pods and Bags in Henstridge near Stalbridge, Somerset and Dorset

"My daughter and I went to this class yesterday for my birthday - and it was a real treat! Sally is a very caring and considerate course facilitator. She was in touch with us before the day and totally took on board all of our specific needs and requirements. During the day she made sure each participant understood what to do next - and was very supportive and encouraging at all times. There was a wide variety of materials available for us to explore and use and we had the opportunity to do a sample piece of felt before working on a larger picture. We received excellent instruction in a friendly and informal setting which created a really positive learning environment. The location was also great with good facilities. Over an hour from where we live - but this was totally worth the drive! It was lovely to see such different end results from each participant - all adding to the learning process which we can take forward to future projects. I would definitely recommend this course and look forward to doing other workshops with Sally in future."

Craft Workshops responded:

" Thank you for sharing your Birthday with us Majulaa - it was lovely to have you attend the workshop day. Thank you for the wonderful review - I am so pleased that you enjoyed learning about wet felting, and the pieces which you made on the day were fantastic! Look forward to seeing you again soon."

Eliana reviewed: Wet felting workshop: introduction to 3D construction for Bowls, Pods and Bags in Henstridge near Stalbridge, Somerset and Dorset

"Attended this class yesterday and completely loved it. Sally made the class completely accessible to beginners and encouraged our own creativity whilst guiding us with the technical side of things. With the chance to try a sample piece first we could try out some different ideas without committing to a final piece, which was a great aspect. Really pleased with how my final picture came out and this is definitely down to the excellent guidance and advice along the way from Sally. Would definitely return for another class! Thank you so much xx"

Craft Workshops responded:

" Thank you for attending the Wet Felting course Eliana - it was great to meet you and I am very pleased you enjoyed the course. Your wet felted pieces were fantastic! Look forward to seeing you again soon."

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

"All materials were included for this course, along with tea & biscuits :) The technique was demonstrated and explained really well. If anyone was finding something tricky, Sally took the time to explain it to them until they mastered it. Sally lead the course at our pace, never rushing us. She encouraged us all throughout and we all had a sleeping mouse to take home! I will definitely be booking on future courses. Thanks Sally."

Craft Workshops responded:

" Thank you for coming to the needle felting course Emma, it was a pleasure having you attend. Thank you very much for your lovely review and I look forward to seeing you again soon."
