Suzanne reviewed: Bookbinding for Beginners

"Excellent facilities and hosting. One book with a spine made. I am used to courses where we make 3 different books or 3-5 books of the same type."

Handmade Workshops Ltd responded:

" Thank you for taking the time to review the workshop, Suzanne. We’ll certainly look into running a workshop making simpler book styles, where participants are then able to make more than one notebook."

CTuohy reviewed: Hand Embroidered Christmas Decorations

"Fabulous evening, great welcome, a glass or a tea whilst you settle, all the resources you need, guidance and a specialist on hand to ask questions! Great evening you can come with friends but also would be totally happy to go to one alone! Totally recommend, Ann is amazing ! "

Handmade Workshops Ltd responded:

" It was so lovely to see you there Claudia and thank you for the really thoughtful review. We're thrilled that you enjoyed the workshop and look forward to seeing you at another one soon! Thanks Ann & Catherine."

Laura Morris reviewed: Coptic Binding

"Amazing! Best thing I've done in years. I have a severe mental illness and this was the first outing I've done alone in almost 3 years. I felt so welcome and comfortable. I didn't feel rushed in doing this book. I was able to really focus on getting it right and I could (and did) ask as many questions as I wanted. There was a wonderful selection of paper for the book cover and string for the binding so we didn't have to compromise on our first choices. Mylyn, the teacher, is wonderful, very welcoming and friendly with endless patience, has a wonderful teaching style and was great at helping too. Mylyn helps and talks you through a bit you are stuck on or undoes a tricky knot you make but doesn't do it for you which is the best way to learn. Mylyn provides templates for every stage which are wonderfully helpful. By the end of the course I felt tired, proud and confident to try this at home with the notes I made during class, and the detailed notes sent to us by Mylyn along with an email with very helpful links for supplies. Already booked for both classes this weekend. Thank you so much."

Handmade Workshops Ltd responded:

" Thanks for your wonderful review Laura. We're so pleased you enjoyed the class! Hope to see you again soon"

Janet Martin reviewed: Japanese Stitching

"Hello, really enjoyed the Japanese stitching on Saturday. Very informative and generous with the samples to practice with. Great location - so nice to have parking. Lovely refreshments too. It was a really good balance of allowing us to get on with things and being available for guidance and help to go our own way with the skill we were learning."

Handmade Workshops Ltd responded:

" Hi Janet It was lovely to see you again and we're so glad you enjoyed the workshop. Thank you for taking the time to write the review, we really appreciate it. Look forward to seeing you at another workshop in the future. Ann & Catherine"
