They are lovely! Thank you so very much. Would have liked the crochet lobster hooks to be slightly larger (especially for Aran and chunkier yarns); but overall pleased with these.
Loved the detail of the personalisation.
Response from Gifted Crafts Company:So pleased you like them. I’ll send you some larger lobster clasps! All the best. Rach
The stitch markers are beautiful, Rachel answered my queries straight away and I am delighted with them. They are also so beautifully wrapped. Thank you.
Response from Gifted Crafts Company:So pleased you like them Helen. Thank you so much for taking the time to review. I really appreciate it. Rach
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.
Response from Gifted Crafts Company: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
I did this course with a group of friends to celebrate a special birthday. We had a great time learning how to use silver clay and we all came away with several beautiful pieces of jewellery. Rachel is a fantastic host and teacher, her passion and enthusiasm for this technique is inspiring and infectious!
Response from Gifted Crafts Company:Thank you. You are so kind. It was an absolute pleasure. Beautiful jewellery from everyone too!
Wonderful workshop, excellent instruction about a fantastic process! Came away with the knowledge to carry on creating, and several pieces of finished jewellery. Highly recommend it Rachel is an excellent teacher and really friendly making everyone feel at ease to ask questions.
Response from Gifted Crafts Company:Thank you so much. So kind of you. It was lovely to meet everyone and you all produced such fab pieces. Rach
Absolutely fantstic course ! Highly recommended.
Rachel is lovely and has so much knowledge, it was a pleasure and one of the best courses I have been on. Be warned !!! You will come away addicted to lasering and the possibilities 😜 thanks again Rach.
Response from Gifted Crafts Company:Thanks so much Sam. You did so well and it was lovely to meet you. Can’t wait to hear what you get up to! Sorry about the addiction! Rach 😀
I was amazed by the quality of the craft materials provided and the attention to detail in the instructions and on the envelopes! An indulgent treat for myself but well worth the money. I even gave a few kits away as Christmas gifts to friends.

I went on this retreat with my Mum! It was absolutely amazing; the glamping tent was super cute and the art sessions were so well done. Rachel is super accommodating and flexible with what you want to do and learn. We chose Beginners Crochet, which we did in Rachel’s cosy lounge with cups of tea, Drawing, Enamelling and two sessions of Book Binding; all done in Rachel’s amazing art studio. Each class was incredibly well taught; she is fab at working at both mine and my mum’s speeds and learning styles, also we were given lots of creative choices and came home with goodie bags of craft supplies and things we’d made! My fave was Enamelling, it was really fun and unusual, the colour changing and experimentation meant we took home lots of charms and jewellery; which Rachel helped us add chains and parts too from her hoards of craft supplies. Added to the brilliant classes was that outside of our allotted times we could go and use the studio to practice, do our own crafting, or if you are me, sit and revel in the art studio I dream of having whilst sipping tea. Oh and there’s tea; so much tea.
I highly recommend this retreat, if you are creative and want to learn new skills, or just need to work on one skill in particular, contact Rachel as she is well versed in all crafts and I’m sure she can help!
Response from Gifted Crafts Company:Thank you so much. It was an amazing week and I was so impressed with all you did. And I learnt so much from you too with your amazing job and personal skills. Thanks so much for taking the time and so much thought and effort writing reviews. It really means so much.
I attended this course as part of a 5 day art retreat; it was super fun! I have always wanted to learn to book bind as it looks like such a fascinating process, plus who has enough sketchbooks and journals? Anyone who says they do would still love a handmade one! We did the course in a glorious art studio that is all wooden, homemade and full of fascinating art supplies and tools. Rachel gave us lots of different techniques to try out and a massive variety of patterned, textured and coloured papers to work with. I did the course with my Mum and we worked at different paces, my mum could fold and cut the paper in no time whereas I was a touch slower (if my mum read this she would say A LOT slower) however our different speeds and learning styles didn’t phase Rachel who could help both of us simultaneously and keep us on track with each stage of the process. In the end I made a lovely pleather bound sketchbook with stitched edges and I can’t wait to find an art project worthy of going in it. Highly recommend!
Response from Gifted Crafts Company:Couldn’t believe how you managed to incorporate all your crafts from the week into your gorgeous book. Amazing! Such a star. Thanks Rozie.
I did this course as part of a 5 day art retreat and it was my fave one of all the courses I took that week. I have always found enamel a fascinating process but never had the chance to try it! Rachel was super skilled at teaching this craft and has an amazing, and adorable, art studio we could work in. To do the course we had a massive variety of enamel powders, glass rods, beads and such to try out. Me being me I wanted to make very specific things; tokens with little stick men on for a very nerdy hobby and so Rachel helped me make lots of little tokens with glass rods out of pennies and the results are great! I also made a bee using beads and it’s so pretty. I highly recommend this course, so much fun.
Response from Gifted Crafts Company:Loved your enamelling. Well done Rozie. And thanks so much.
Spent a week at the retreat learning new crafts from the amazing Rachel. Several people have tried to teach me to crochet, but only Rachel succeeded! I am now crocheting a bee! I enjoyed all the crafts we tried and the time flew by! Rachel is very accommodating and her knowledge is endless.
Response from Gifted Crafts Company:Thank you so much Heather. I knew you’d be able to crochet! Well done. Love to see a picture of the bee!
Loved the sign for the gate for my holiday cottage. Great quality and Rachel really went above and beyond to make sure the new sign matched the door and the gate. Arrived so quickly too!
Response from Gifted Crafts Company:Glad you like it. Your cottage looks idyllic! Thanks so much. 😀
I was looking for something a bit different as a replacement for business cards on my bunches and bouquets of locally grown flowers. These were perfect and fit perfectly with the rustic look of my brand. Always arrive very speedily too. Thank you
Response from Gifted Crafts Company:They look amazing on your beautiful flowers. Love your branding too. ❤️ Thanks so much.
Loved this course! I was a little apprehensive about doing an online course, but Rachel soon put me at ease. She was very clear and soon I was crocheting things I had only dreamed of before. Lessons were fun, she was extremely patient, and I always felt like each session increased my skill greatly.
Response from Gifted Crafts Company:Thanks I much Lexi. It was great fun and you did so well. I couldn’t believe how quickly to picked it up! 😃
A beautiful gift for a new baby- lovingly made with thought in every detail. All of my children love the puzzle and it is played with on a daily basis- great for learning how to spell their new sibling’s name :) xxx
Response from Gifted Crafts Company:Thanks Millie. So pleased all your children like it. Thanks so much for taking the time to do this review. I really appreciate it. Rach x
Exactly what I asked for, very clean, very clear. Fast delivery would recommend 👍🏻
Response from Gifted Crafts Company:Thank you so much Mark. I really appreciate you taking the time to do a review. All the very best Rach
I had an amazing evening playing with silver, soaking up inspiration from the warm and welcoming studio.
Rachel was brilliant, put me at ease straight away and before I knew it I had created 2 necklaces using different techniques as well as picking up some truly amazing hacks in order for me to play at home without the expense of specialist equipment.
I honestly cannot wait to go back and learn more from Rachel. I think next time I'll share the experience with a friend or few (so I can go several times).
Thank you Rachel, gor the tea and your time.
Response from Gifted Crafts Company:Thank you so much Rakhee. You are such a star. It was like meeting a kindred spirit! Take care. All the very best. Rach
This was my third workshop with Rachel and it did not disappoint. Rachel is very knowledgeable and guides you through the whole process. I was able to try different techniques and was really pleased with my results. I wish I could play in Rachel's workshop every day!
Response from Gifted Crafts Company:Thanks so much Claire. You’re such a star. x
