My first attempt at mosaic and I thoroughly enjoyed this class . Sally was an excellent teacher and made the lesson really enjoyable. Plenty of tea and biscuits too , the perfect way to spend a Saturday.
Sally was wonderful and the whole day was so much fun. Great mother/daughter time had by us. Even if I did have to drag mum there !! I’ll drag her back to another one soon :)
Do you really expect me to believe that this flimsy piece of clay will turn into a solid piece of silver?
Are you suggesting that even though I'm a complete beginner I'll produce a piece of jewellery that I can wear at the end of just one day?
Are you seriously saying that the cost of the tuition, tools, venue, silver, and all the biscuits are included in the fee?
Yes ! Yes ! Yes !
What a totally magical day - thank you Sally - (am hoping to come again soon - 'cos I still can't quite believe what happened...!)
Just had a great day doing silver clay jewellery and am very chuffed with what I managed to do (even if I did go for the more challenging things!). I got my partner to photo 'my treasures' so that I can brag about them to my friends - I'm right proud of myself! Now planning to do some more and hopefully make some pieces worthy of Xmas gifts.
As a person with a disability, I would especially like to thank Sally for all her help and the amount of work she put into it so that I could join in seamlessly, she's very thoughtful and inclusive. Thanks for making it possible and I would encourage anyone to give it a go. I will certainly be back for another craft venture at some stage.
Just attended the course on 23rd March. Brilliant is all I can say. Sally is very patient takes you step by step on what you are doing. I cam away with a pair of earrings that nobody else will have. Wonderful session with a lovely group of ladies.
Thank you Sally
Response from Craft Workshops:Thank You Wendy. I love that everyone starts off with the same amount of silver art clay and everyone leaves with pieces of jewellery which are unique. The variety of ideas never ceases to amaze me!
What a brilliant course with a lovely group of ladies. I had a fantastic day, thoroughly enjoyed myself and came away with three pairs of small earrings and a beautiful leaf pendant to replace one that had tarnished. Sally is so patient, helpful and encouraging. What a talented lady and incredibly brave to let us loose with a blow torch!
Response from Craft Workshops:Thank You Liz. You did really well making the earrings and replacement leaf pendant. I have nerves of steel (or should that be silver?!) :)
Just attended Sally’s last beginners class, superb, she walked us through step by step and as a result I have come away with a unique pair of earrings.
Response from Craft Workshops:Thank You Gillian, lovely review and great to meet you.
I was lucky enough to have this course bought for me, what a lovely present! I had a wonderful day. Sally is a lovely tutor, so full of knowledge, encouragement and humour! We worked in a small group of people and were able to choose what we made. We all chose either a mole in a pot or a sleeping fox but I think if we all had chosen something different Sally would have taken it all in her stride. I made a fox which actually looks like a fox! I learnt a new skill and I’m definitely going to do more. I thoroughly recommend this course and I will be back for more, hopefully the wet felting later in the year!
Had a wonderful time on this day course. Was a complete beginner and despite being an enthusiastic amateur where brain/eye/hand co-ordination is practically non-existent, I came away with a completed woodland animal that looked close to what it should look like! Sally was extremely encouraging and was able to put me right without me being aware of it. We were able to work at our own pace amongst a small friendly group of like-minded people and the time just whizzed by. Got the bug and will be back for more!
I attended this course with my mum as and early Mother's Day present and we had a fantastic day. Sally is lovely; she really wants you to get the most of out the day and we were not told what to make, we were asked what WE would like to make. Sally really wanted everyone to leave at the end of the day with having made something that they love. Some of us made cute moles and some of us, including me, made sleeping foxes.
Sally is very good at explaining technique (and funny, too!) and she is patient and encouraging; perfect for complete beginners like us!
Both mum and I came away with a cute creatures and a great feeling of achievement. I keep looking at my fox thinking "I made that!". My mum really enjoyed making her mole and had a great day. I highly recommend this course and I am now looking at Sally's other classes, because I know that they will be excellent. Thank you, Sally.
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! 😊
Response from Craft Workshops: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 :)
Fab day. Sally is patient, encouraging and fun to learn with. Now have a new skill which is both relaxing and satisfying. Cannot recommend Sally enough 🤩🤩
Response from Craft Workshops:Thank you for your review Sarah and for coming along to the Workshop. I'm really pleased you enjoyed it and, having not completed a crocheted item before, your finished Amigurumi whale is wonderful! Look forward to seeing you again.
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.
Response from Craft Workshops:Thank you for your review Elisa - your earrings were amazing and I am really pleased you love them! I hope to see you again soon.
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!
Response from Craft Workshops: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?! :)
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 .
Response from Craft Workshops: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!).
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!
Response from Craft Workshops: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!
Excellent course! Had a lot of fun and achieved an unbelievable amount more than expecting. So many questions answered. Sewed exciting creative seeds for future projects. Learned about tools, supplies and possibilities too. A mindful and fulfilling skill. Thank you!
Response from Craft Workshops:Thank you Camilla. I'm really pleased you enjoyed your day and learnt some new skills. Thank you for coming to the workshop - hope to see you again. Sally :)
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.
Response from Craft Workshops: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.
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.
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.
