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.
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.
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
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.
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.
I thoroughly recommend this Making Mosaics course.
Sally is an excellent teacher. She is very encouraging and patient.
I really enjoyed learning to make mosaic coasters. I felt I had achieved all my aims.
A really lovely day thank you Sally.
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!!
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.
Response from Craft Workshops: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.
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.
Response from Craft Workshops: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.
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
Response from Craft Workshops: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.
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.
Response from Craft Workshops: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.

Sally is an excellent teacher and has a great sense of humour and is very patient.
We all made a mouse 🐭
I thoroughly recommend this course.
