"Absolutely loved my first time silk painting. Mrs Constance was very welcoming and warm. She paid special attention to each of us and taught both the techniques of silk painting. I am looking forward to more courses."

Rachel Freeman reviewed: Embroidery Traditional and Contemporary

"We were a family group of three with different levels of experience. Constance made us feel very welcome and shared her skill and knowledge of embroidery whilst encouraging our own individual creativity and style. It was lovely day and I'd recommend the course to beginners and improvers."

Crafts and Kits responded:

" Thank you for your review Rachel. I certainly enjoyed watching all three of you produce such amazing pieces of embroidery. Three very different styles all beautifully done. Such neat work. Constance"

Jane Hughes reviewed: Silk Painting Techniques

"I had a fabulous day with Constance and was lucky to be the only one on the course so had 1:1 tuition. The venue was excellent, what a treat to travel through glorious South Shropshire. Constance was well prepared for my day with everything I needed and we had such a lovely day together. I made 3 pieces of silk work learning new techniques in the process. I am absolutely thrilled with my outcomes and will be ordering a set of equipment so I can carry on learning at home. I can’t thank Constance enough for her time and expertise. We chatted as we worked, what a lovely lady. I thoroughly recommend this course and a huge thank you to Constance for a very special day."

Crafts and Kits responded:

" Thank you for your review Jane, I much appreciated your kind words. I’m glad you enjoyed the day, I certainly did and your hellebore silk painting was fabulous. I think you’ve found your medium, you are a natural with silk painting and I’m glad that you are going to pursue silk painting further."

Kim Chandley reviewed: Embroidery Traditional and Contemporary

"A fantastic day learning new stitches and gaining inner confidence to interpret an image and design my own embroidery piece. Constance is a wonderful teacher, always supportive and encouraging and very sensitive to her student’s needs. She’s an accomplished artist and a perceptive, thoughtful, wise person with a creative passion for life which is totally engaging and infectious. She offers clear, helpful structured guidance for all abilities and customs her approach to fit each individual. A great listener with a delightful sense of play and experimentation- she really is inspirational and totally down to earth. She should be rated platinum - one of the best tutors I’ve ever had the good fortune to meet. If you had any doubts, book - you won’t regret it!"

Crafts and Kits responded:

" Thank you for your generous review, I loved teaching you as you were such fun and so responsive. It was a good day and I notice you have booked another day. See you again soon.Thank you, Constance"
