"The workshops were excellent and the tutors were amazingly patient and encouraging. However, I found my eyesight not to be good enough for close work, such as for the chain mail bracelet and for part of the beadwork. I really needed a magnifying lens and, perhaps a daylight lamp might have helped too. I never quite grasped the chain mail 'rabbit ears'. I don't know if there could be a demo with extra large rings. I had difficulty handling the tools for this project....The rings kept shooting off in all directions. Never mind- it was all good fun. I really liked the mosaic work as it was entirely up to us how we completed this."

" Thanks so much for the feedback Helen!
We're just planning the next retreat for Spring 2024 in the Cotswolds. Hope to meet you again soon.
