The course was so much fun. Rachel is a great teacher, really knowledgeable and friendly.
It was fantastic to get stuck in and making my first item straight away, I got to try lots of different techniques and tools. There really is all you can drink tea & coffee too and lunch was superb.
I came away with so many beautiful items and the confidence and skills to to have a go at home.
Can't wait to book the next course!
Response from Gifted Crafts Company:Thank you so much Vikki and for a fab day. You made such beautiful pieces. Look forward to seeing you again! All the very best.
The course was fantastic - I came home with some beautiful pieces. I'm not sure if I can bear to give them away as Christmas gifts though, which was my intention! Everything was laid out so simply and Rachel's instructions/guidance were superb all throughout. We tried so many different techniques - I actually can't believe the items I made. Homemade bread and shortbread for lunch topped the day off perfectly! I will absolutely be doing some of her other courses soon.
Response from Gifted Crafts Company:A huge well done and thank you. Your pieces were definitely too lovely to give away!
This course was absolutely fantastic - I'm so amazed with the beautiful items I came home with. Who knew clay would turn into silver?! Even now, I still can't believe I made them! They get so many comments! Nothing was too much trouble for Rachel in terms of extra supplies or guidance on what to do/how. We tried so many different techniques over the course of the day and I'm so glad I decided to stay over at the campsite in one of the bell tents. I will DEFINITELY be booking on her other courses as soon as I can.
Response from Gifted Crafts Company:Thank you so much Carly. And well done for your beautiful pieces. Looking forward to seeing you again.
Such a great morning with Rachel learning how to enamel. Every stage was well demonstrated and Rachel was on hand to offer help and advice throughout. I am thrilled with what I managed to produce in 3 hours (which flew by!) Will definitely be trying some other avtivities in the future, thank you Rachel.
A brief mention of the dreaded Covid19...we both wore masks, the window was open and we maintained social distance, it felt a very safe activity, well managed.
Response from Gifted Crafts Company:Thank you so much Claire. It was a really lovely morning. Thank you! And your enamel pieces were so beautiful. Well done. Look forward to seeing you again soon!
The enamelling course with Rach was absolutely brilliant. The workshop is in a beautiful setting. She is a great instructor, clearly very knowledgeable but explained the steps simply. She gave us plenty of freedom to choose what we would like to do and was always on hand to answer questions. A really friendly and relaxed approach which made for a wonderful morning. I couldn't recommend enough.
Response from Gifted Crafts Company:Thank you so much. It really was a lovely morning. And well done for your beautiful pieces.
The course was the most fun I've had in years. Right from the start Rachel had me pouring pewter into moulds, it was the full-day course so we had time to have a go at loads of techniques and ways of casting. Everything was explained fully and you were hands-on most of the time. The lunch was superb, constant tea as it says in the introduction but best of all lots and lots of time to spend making, for instance you cast a pendant then you drill a hole in it, then make a ring for it and select a chain to hang it from. I'm starting to make my own casts now and it's great.
Response from Gifted Crafts Company:You did so well with your pewter Al. Can’t wait to see what you do at home. Thanks so much. Rach
Really enjoyed my day at the art and craft workshop. Beautiful surroundings, hope to do another course there.
Response from Gifted Crafts Company:Thank you so much. It was lovely to meet you Keri. And I'm so pleased you are continuing your silver clay at home. It would be lovely to see you again. All the very best. Rachel
Now 75 I had never made jewellery before. I moulded, heated, cut and polished some pewter and then I engraved it with initials and a logo and it now adorns my keyring. Rachel was a brilliant teacher and very enthusiastic and patient. I shall certainly join a group again when I make another visit.
Response from Gifted Crafts Company:Thank Keith. And well done. Look forward to seeing you again soon.
Rachel has a lovely set-up for many crafts. She is a great teacher and communicates her skills well in a happy and relaxed atmosphere. We were there with the family and you soon get caught up with making lovely things.
Response from Gifted Crafts Company:Thank you Fay. Look forward to seeing you again soon.
This was an amazing course and a great afternoon's company
I learnt so much and Racheal is so helpful and kind
I can’t wait to go back and do it all over again
Response from Gifted Crafts Company:Thank you Lauren. It was a really enjoyable course. Well done.
What a fun day. Rachel is really supportive and amazingly creative. I did the course with my mum and my adult children. Something for the whole family regardless of age. Thank you. Can't wait to come back.
Response from Gifted Crafts Company:Thank you so much. You did really well.
An amazing course! Rachel is brilliant - encouraging, enthusiastic and successfully positive, whilst clearly explaining and modelling new skills. We got to try lots of different techniques & produced beautiful items. Thank you, can't wait to book the next course!
Response from Gifted Crafts Company:Thank you. I loved the hill / contour designs that you did. They were lovely.
Myself & my partner did this amazing experience. It was a really fun day, made keys that we will have as a memory forever. Event organisers were very friendly and made us feel very welcome. Would recommend to anyone wanting a great day and something to remember. Would definitely do again. X
Response from Gifted Crafts Company:Thank you Kieron. Your key rings were a brilliant idea.
Rachel's enthusiasm and passion shines through when she teaches, making this a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Clear instructions and great materials allow you to make lovely products and Rachel encourages you to try different ideas and use unusual glass beads and fragments in your designs. Great fun and really sociable - thank you.
Response from Gifted Crafts Company:Thank you Michelle. You made some really lovely pieces of enamel.
