I was slightly skeptical about making a mask initially, but had a brilliant time doing this workshop! Learnt loads of new techniques, ate lots of cake, and made a beautiful mask all in good company! Gaynor was very patient, even when we took slightly longer than anticipated and was very welcoming! Would be definitely be keen to do more workshops if I'm back in the area!

What a wonderful course, and an amazing location!
In two days I learnt a phenomenal amount and came home with a beautiful leather bag. Gaynor was an excellent teacher, really knowledgeable and willing to answer all of my questions as we went along. Despite being a lot to learn in two days the course was well paced and there were plenty of tea and cake breaks!
The workshop is in an old chapel which meant that even on the two hottest days of the year it was lovely and cool, perfect to work in.
I would recommend this course to anyone interested in leatherwork.

I booked a one day mask making course for myself and four friends with Gaynor and was very impressed with her efficiency in dealing with pre-course admin and payments.
The one day workshop itself was well organised and structured with attention paid to timing so we all left with a finished mask. Gaynor clearly explained the materials, tools and techniques and was incredibly generous with the information given and most helpful to those of us who wanted to pursue mask making / leatherwork as a hobby.
I cannot recommend this workshop highly enough, we were all blown away by the standard of tuition and the masks we created... so I give it 10/10 for efficiency, depth of knowledge shared, professionalism, fun and resulting masks. Superb.
