"We had a fab time and our finished pieces were so satisfyingly effective! Abigail and Melody were great teachers, interactive, friendly and supportive. We can't wait to do more. Thanks for a lovely afternoon - I would recommend this to anyone!"
"Oh gosh, I am addicted absolutely love this bought it for myself although this was the kit for mistletoe I’ve also managed to make a load of Holly leaves and a dragonfly as well as the mistletoe. Still have lots of product left. Have now ordered more resin in different colours and other stuff. I’m intending on having a making party with my best friend for her Birthday and a separate session with my sister-in-law for her birthday... So going to be lots and lots of fun."
" Thank you for such a lovely review of our products! There is always a lot of resin left over in most of our kits so it's really good that you were able to make other things as well. Thank you for your new order also - it is in the post now. Hope the birthday parties go well for your friend and your sister-in-law. Look forward to seeing some photos of what you all make. Best wishes Melody and Abigail"
"Great fun though some of the mistletoe berries broke off their stems. I loved doing this and may well be hooked!
It would be helpful to include info on how to get the colour off one's fingers - I managed to have green fingers (literally!) for our boxing day lunch!
Think I need to make the flowers next and progress to the wreath for next year's Christmas!
You are based near me - do you plan any face to face workshops?"
" Thank you for taking the time to write a review, and I am glad that you enjoyed the kit. If you go to our website and look at the Instruction Sheets you will see a Guide to using and storing resin dip, which gives all the information re getting it from your fingers. However, it does peel off quite easily when it is dry, rather like nail varnish. We do advise in our kits that you look at these guides. The mistletoe berries need very gentle handling, and the wires have to be carefully twisted apart or the berries do tend to break off. We only found this out ourselves very recently, when one of our customers who has arthritis asked us to separate the berries before we posted them, - so sorry we could not add it in the instructions. The mistletoe berries we had last year were not so "fragile" and could be handled more roughly. Yes we do plan face to face workshops and we advertise them on our website and here on Craft Courses. We did plan to hold some in January but have hesitated because of Covid, but are hopeful for February. Watch this space!"
"Purchased for a friend - with the request that they keep it for Christmas, but they were way too impatient! Delivery was super-quick, and she was delighted with it - and has already sent me photos of the finished product, which she has really enjoyed. Great value. Thank you."
" Thank you so much - so pleased your friend enjoyed it. What is she going to open on Christmas Day????"
"I haven’t used the kit yet but it all looks very professional and nicely wrapped.
I spoke to one of the lovely ladies who run this business and she was so helpful and kind. I would definitely recommend buying from this business."
" Thank you for your review. We do try hard with the presentation so your comment about the wrapping is very well received!
Pleased we were able to help when you rang."
"Arrived promptly, well packaged. Instructions and videos were clear and looked straightforward to do. Only drying time wasn’t explained, but we made all leaf pairs first before assembling. I shared the present with a friend and we had a lovely afternoon pre-Christmas making a smaller bunch each. The kit was enough to make two decent sized bunches. We made a few more pairs of leaves without berries. Did not need thinner. Delighted with the end product."
" Thank you for your feedback, we are pleased that you enjoyed the mistletoe kit, and that you liked the bunches of mistletoe you made. It is so nice to get such nice comments. Thank you."
Not as versatile as I’d hoped, but as I got 3 primary colours in my kit I have mixed them to add variety.
It’s very 70’s !!
Not like normal resins"
" Sorry if the kit was not as you expected. We do try to give all the relevant information in the description and stress that it is a dip resin and not the more common epoxy resin - and yes it was developed in the 70s! Many thanks for taking the time to write a review for us. Best wishes Melody and Abigail"
"Have enjoyed making fabulous resin Lilley flowers. Instructions were good, but some of the pictures representing shapes of wire flowers were quite feint when printed out. Just finishing my first bunch."
" Thank you for reviewing our product Jane. We have improved our pictures with the later instructions, and we are in the process of updating all our instructions - but it is a slow process as we are also adding new kits all the time. The lily flowers are not the easiest to make - so well done for making them. We hope you continue to enjoy making resin flowers."
"Kit was very comprensive. Everything i needed to get started. Links to videos and instructions provided. I soon made my first daffodil."
" Thanks Mandie. The daffodils are very pretty, but some people find them a bit awkward to assemble at the first go, so well done! If you have the time please send us some photos for the Gallery on our website. We would love to see them."
"The kit arrived promptly and was well packed. Instructions were excellent and I am very pleased with the finished result. A small amount of thinner would be great in the kit as resin started to thicken despite me closing lid and dipping all the leaves at one sitting. That said, I have made 20 sprigs and I am very happy with them and the great service I have received.
" Thank you Mary for such a positive review - we will definitely look into adding a small bottle of thinners to our kits. Always grateful for such feedback."
"Kept two adults occupied for at least 4 hours which is money very well spent. Highly recommend it."
" Thanks Claire we're working on the 8-hour attention kit right now! :)
Seriously we really appreciate reviews as it does make a difference to our buyers so very many thanks for yours.
Melody and Abigail"
"Very satisfied, extremely easy to make lovely flowers by following the very clear instructions. Had some fun messing about and realised that the colours can be made even more vivid by giving a second dipping once the first attempt is fully dry. Got quite inventive and created my own simple design to make leaves."
" Thank you for your review Paul. So pleased you are enjoying the resin kits.
Abigail and Melody"
"Ordered Wednesday and the kit arrived Friday morning. Really good value for money with excellent instructions and links to videos. Looking forward to making some beautiful flowers! Thoroughly recommended. ****"
" Thank you so much Jacqui for your kind review.
Please send us photos of your creations as we love to show off all your good work.
Abigail and Melody"
"What a fantastic 4 hours! Everything needed was provided and we made some beautiful flowers with excellent tuition from Abby and Melody. Refreshments were tasty and althogether it was a most enjoyable day. I bought one of the kits and have ordered more resin etc since as I really love making these flowers.
Thank you for a great day!"
" Thank you Jenny, we are so glad you enjoyed it, and we are really pleased to carry on supplying you. Please send us some pictures for us to share on our website."
"This course was one of the best courses I've attended. It was well executed with everything I needed easily to hand. We were able to choose from a variety of flowers to make and given tuition to enable us to make them. Lovely variety of colours to use. Friendly advice, plenty of refreshments all through our 4 hour class and a lovely lunch all included. Looking forward to going to the next one. Thank you Melody and Abigail."
" Thank you Anne, so glad you enjoyed it. Looking forward to the next course as well!"
"Fantastic workshop! Such lovely friendly ladies, nothing was too much trouble and we are so pleased with our wreaths. Lots of help if you need it. Food provided was lovely and drinks offered all the time. Would thoroughly recommend. I will definitely go on another course with this company."
