"The course was fantastic, very well organised and easy to access, even for us as beginners. Lindsay was very patient helping us to make something really lovely and was determined to ensure we all took home a piece to be proud of.
Thanks so much for all your hard work. "
" I'm so glad you all enjoyed the course Claire, thanks for coming along and for the great feedback! You should all be so proud of the lovely necklaces you made, they really are fab! "
"Lovely morning workshop. Very busy and rewarding having my wire wreath as a forever decoration. Lunch was lovely but had little time to eat it as we were so busy creating. The venue was pleasant but it was cold and didn’t really warm up. This didn’t detract from the enjoyment but we were chilly and needed a warm when we left. An extra coffee/tea would have been good on arrival to get us settled "
" Thanks for your feedback Jan, much appreciated and some great points made too. You made a gorgeous wreath and I hope it hangs somewhere proudly! "
"Enjoyed the course and learnt some new techniques. I came away with a lovely wreath - which I will treasure. All my family are very impressed.
The course is 4 hrs and probably could do with being 1-2hrs longer. The first half was well paced with enough time to practice and produce the different leaf shapes - such as mistletoe, holly. But the afternoon was more rushed, which is where another 1-2hrs would have been useful. I finished mine off at home.
Couple of comments to make it easier for others - parking around the venue is difficult with lots limited to 2hrs or residents only. Some information on where best to park would be useful.
The venue although well lit and roomy was extremely cold. Other crafters put their coats back on. Either ensure that this is in the information so people wear appropriate jumpers or ensure better heating.
The food spread at lunch was stunning and catered for all needs (including vegan and gluten free). I would have been more than happy to have brought a packed lunch though. I’m not sure from a financial point of view whether this level of catering is viable. I was too busy making berries to really benefit from the lunch.
Still overall well worth a go - most of the group had no previous wire working experience and all came away with lovely wreaths "
" I'm glad you enjoyed the course Helen and thanks so much for your feedback too. You've made some great points which I'll be sure to take on board going forward!"
"I thoroughly enjoyed this course. I’ve never done anything like this before but the tutor made it easy to follow so great for beginners but as the tutor has a lot of years experience and study in this area, more advanced students can still progress. I would definitely like to do more. "
" I'm so glad you enjoyed the workshop Allison, your pairs of earrings turned out fab! Thanks for your lovely review, it'd be great to see you at another workshop!"
"Friendly session and Lindsay was very approachable and knowledgeable. We both learnt a lot and made silver rings that we were really pleased with. Lindsay was really good at listening to what we wanted to achieve and helping us do that. Many thanks Lindsay, we hope to come to more sessions :)"
" I'm glad you both enjoyed it! Thanks for the feedback and it'd be great to welcome you to another workshop in the future!"
"My sister and I have a lovely morning on this course. Neither of us had made jewellery before and with friendly and knowledgeable tuition we made five lovely silver rings between us.
From Loft to Loved was a lovely venue with plenty of handmade items and kits to buy afterwards!
Really enjoyed it, looking forward to finding another course with Lindsay."
" I'm so glad you both enjoyed the workshop, you each made some fab rings! Thanks for your lovely feedback, it'd be great to see you at another workshop in the future too."
"Lindsay was informative, friendly and helpful. I enjoyed learning new skills and surprised myself with the end results. I would however suggest that the course for a beginner, was about three quarters of an hour too short. It would have been easier for me if the we actually did each step just after Lindsay explained it as opposed to once she'd finished the whole procedure ."
" Thanks so much for your review Karen, I'm glad you enjoyed the workshop and appreciate your feedback on this course!"
"This was a lovely workshop enabling us to produce a pretty silver wire ring and matching earrings.
Lyndsay was warm and welcoming. She explained and demonstrated the process very clearly and allowed us to practise our new skills before the final silverwork. She patiently supported us and we all came away with some beautiful jewellery."
" Thanks for coming along Kaye, it was fab to have you all making some beautiful jewellery!"
"The course was pitched at the right level. The Tutor was patient and made time for each person. It was interesting and the techniques were clearly explained. The equipment was provided and I came away with some great jewellery. Thank you."
" Thanks for the review Claire, it's great that you enjoyed making some fabulous silver rings!"
"Wow-what an amazing experience this was! I got this as a gift and loved every second, Lindsay was so kind and considerate when we rearranged. I am only16 so I was nervous, however, the class was extremely interesting and Lindsay put me at ease instantly. I have had numerous compliments on my jewellery and would recommend this class to anyone with any skill set."
"I had a lovely morning learning the skill of how to make some silver textured earrings and necklace.
Lindsay could not have been more helpful. I would definitely recommend anyone to attend one of her workshops.
I am hoping to attend another of her workshops in the future."
"Another enjoyable course with lovely wearable jewellery to come away with. I felt honoured that you offered such large pieces of sea glass from your own collection.
Thank you for sharing your lovely sea glass finds and your skills and experience."
" You're welcome Sue, thanks for coming along, some more lovely jewellery you've created!"
"A nice little course to get started with making wire rings.
Clear instruction and demonstration throughout.
Good support and guidance given.
Lovely venue to learn in and four handmade rings to wear as the result."
" Thanks Sue, glad you enjoyed an introduction to making rings. You had great attention to detail, yours looked fab!"
