Watercolour painting with Erica Just

In-person course
Jane McGregor - - #33465

A really enjoyable day with Erica. Its a shame we have to endure the partitioning and masks which do detract from full engagement, but perfectly accept that they are necessary to keep us safe in the pandemic. I learned a lot about watercolour, which was my aim for attending. Peaceful location and lovely lunch. A very worthwhile experience,

Response from Created By Hand:

Hi Jane
Thanks for the review

Yes it is a shame that we need to screen off each student in these strange times but it's good to know that they didn't affect your experience too greatly.

Hopefully in the near future this will be something that we can stop doing and return to the full tutor / student experience

Glass Fusing with David Humphreys

In-person course
Alison Bramley - - #33162

What an excellent day I had with my niece on the glass fusing course. David Humphreys was a great tutor and host. Everything was set up to be Covid safe. With no knowledge of glass fusing other than browsing on Pinterest I was able to make a coaster, sun catcher and brooch. I throughly enjoyed the creative fun. David delivered the course with just the right amount of technical info. We had a great lunch (extra charge) at the mulberry cafe. All round a 5 star day.

Many thanks for the lovely review Alison

We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed the day and you felt safe with the steps taken to make the class Covid safe.

The pieces you worked on during the class have just been loaded into the kiln and look great.

We look forward to seeing you again when you collect your pieces and welcoming you to one of the other workshops in the future

All COVID measures were in place and it was a safe and friendly space to create in.

I had a really great day, thank you. Very pleased with my end products. The techniques were well explained and we were fully equipped to make the glass items. Lovely place to be, with nice refreshments throughout the day, and I bought lunch in the cafe next door. Highly recommend this course.
