Wendy reviewed: Laser craft - 1 day

"I had a fantastic day learning so many new skills from Rachel. She is very skilled, patient and talented. I learnt a great deal from the 1 day laser course, she paced it to my abilities and confidence and supported me throughout. It was wonderful to bring out my own creativity making personalised pieces with different materials to to take home as well as my new skills learnt too! I know I’ve got a journey ahead in setting up my business, but I feel I’ve got a great foundation to start from and I’m feeling inspired. Great course, Rach is very hospitable and welcoming and a bonus that it’s in a fab setting too. Thank you so much Rach. I would highly recommend this course!!"

Gifted Crafts Company responded:

" Thank you Wendy. That’s so kind of you to take the time to review and for all your lovely comments. You did so well. Looking forward to seeing how it all develops! All the very best. Rach "

Rachel is a fantastic teacher and her studio is in a gorgeous location, she makes you feel really relaxed, gives great advice and support and really encourages you to give it a go.

Caro reviewed: Beginner Silver Clay Jewellery - 3 Hours

"My daughter and I did a morning of silver clay with Rachel, and it was brilliant! Rachel was welcoming and lovely, and explained everything really well. We'd not done anything like silver clay before, but I'd say it is a workshop where you can make something you're really pleased with at first attempt. We had everything we needed in the workshop (including biscuits!) and we both made braclets with several charms. Both keen to go back for a longer session to try making rings. Thank you Rachel!"

Gifted Crafts Company responded:

" Thank you so much for taking the time to review and your lovely comments. It was really lovely to meet you both and the quality of your silver pieces was brilliant. I’d love to see you again for ring making. You’d both be great at it! Take care. Rach"

David and Tessa Robinson reviewed: Pewter Casting Workshop - 1 Day

"We had a lovely day with Rachel teaching us all about pewter casting. She's an excellent teacher and very encouraging. We started off learning basic skills and then went on to explore what we could do with these. We had brought some sea shells, pebbles and sea glass with us and Rachel helped us to try out all the different ways of using these."

Gifted Crafts Company responded:

" Thank you so much for taking the time and such a lovely review. You did brilliantly and it was an absolute pleasure. I look forward to seeing how you continue at home! All the very best. Rach"

Matt reviewed: Beginner Pewter casting - 3 Hours

"I cannot rate this casting course high enough. Rachel is an excellent tutor with a wonderful teaching style. I was able to have a go at a number of different types of pewter casting and came home with some lovely pieces and a complete understanding of how to try casting at home. Well worth the cost, and plenty of cups of tea which is always a bonus."

Gifted Crafts Company responded:

" Thanks Matt. It was so lovely to meet with you and work with you. You did brilliantly and I can’t wait to see what else you do. Stay in touch! All the best. Rach"

Hilary Harris reviewed: Beginners Crocheting Course Learn at Home Live with Rachel

"I had tried to learn to crochet from books so many times but without success. I was a little apprehensive about doing the course as although a knitter, crochet always felt so far outside my comfort zone. My experience with Rachel was absolutely fantastic. She put me at ease from the very beginning and that allowed me to crochet ~ what a surprise! Rachel was very professional from the start with her pre-course contact the pack that she sends is great. She is so patient and friendly and each session, although obviously structured, is also tailored to the individual. I cannot recommend Rachel highly enough ~ she is a natural teacher giving both the skills and the motivation to her students. Thank-you so much Rachel I feel that I can now crochet ~ who knew that would happen!"

Gifted Crafts Company responded:

" Thank you so much for taking the time and such a lovely review Hilary. It was an absolute pleasure and you did brilliantly! I can’t wait to see what else you make! All the very best. Rach"

Jodie Morgan reviewed: Enamel Jewellery Workshop - 1 Day

"I was taught by Rachel in December 2021, I did two courses, the enamel day course (in person) and the silver clay course online. Firstly the setting that you do the course is stunning, Rachel has a lovely studio that is well stocked with everything you could possibly think of needing. The teaching is intuitive, in that you can see Rachel follows your lead, if you need more time on a particular aspect she can see you need that, if you need freedom to create you are afforded that. It is learning you everything you need to know in a style that is tailored to you. I have genuinely had a lovely time learning various mediums with Rachel, the support after the course and encouragement is reassuring. Any questions you have about the process you were taught in she will happily help you. If you are after a course just for a fun day to craft and learn a new fun skill or because you want to start selling your wares, I can highly recommend Rachel’s courses. I can’t wait to book more courses:)"

Gifted Crafts Company responded:

" Thank you Jodie. You are so kind. I really appreciate you taking the time to review. So thoughtful. Love seeing what you are making on social media. Well done! You did so well and it was an absolute pleasure to meet you and so lovely to stay in touch. Rach"

Maggie Boston reviewed: Silver Clay Jewellery Workshop - 1 Day

"I had a thoroughly enjoyable day with Rachel in her wonderful workshop (very envious of it!). Upon arrival I was greeted by a lovely little welcome sign guiding me to the parking and workshop, which I thought was a very nice touch. She is a very friendly and relaxed person, with a lovely personality who makes you feel at home right away, and has a huge amount of knowledge to pass on. The morning was spent getting to know the tools, different techniques and how to make moulds. Then in the afternoon I was able to go ahead using the knowledge gained in the morning to produce several pieces which I then attached to a lovely little kilt pin brooch. I was thrilled to come away with my own piece of handiwork and feel very proud of it. Having already been given a Silver Clay starter kit as a present I now can't wait to start producing more lovely silver items. Thank you Rachel - I hope to come back and see you again :-)"

Gifted Crafts Company responded:

" Thank you so much for your feedback. So thoughtful of you to take the time. It was an absolute pleasure, you produced some beautiful pieces and I look forward to seeing you again! All the very best. Rach"

Lynne reviewed: Silver Clay Jewellery Workshop - 1 Day

"What an amazing day. Rachel was knowledgeable, patient and good company throughout the day. This was a great way to get an introduction to silver clay crafting and I am definitely hooked! I made several beautiful items to bring home along with moulds to use again. I even have some left over clay and some polishing cloths with my own collection of clay dust for repair work on its way!"

Gifted Crafts Company responded:

" Well done for all your lovely pieces Lynne and thank you so much for taking the time to do a review. I really appreciate it. I had such a lovely day too! Hope the rest of your weekend was lovely. Thanks so much and take care. Rach"

Rachael reviewed: Marbling Create at Home Craft Kits with Online Support

"Honestly, not worth the money at all. I’ve had multiple courses from CraftCourses.com that have come with extensive video tutorials. This comes with an A4 leaflet and very poor quality materials that you can buy at a fraction of the price online. So disappointed and I wish I’d have chosen a different course."

Gifted Crafts Company responded:

" I’m so sorry that you are disappointed with the kit. The kit comes with online support which can involve video calls if you would like. Please let me know if I can make some changes for you that would improve your experience of this kit or if you would like to either try a different kit or course or return the kit and have a refund. I will do all I can to help. Kind regards. Rachel"
