"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."
" Thank you for your review Ankita.
Your scarf of butterflies and flowers that you designed yourself was beautiful.
your practice scarf of sea colours was amazing too. I look forward to seeing you again.
"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."
" 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.
"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."
" 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."
"A fantastic day learning new stitches and gaining inner confidence to interpret an image and design my own embroidery piece.
