"I've just come from this course and it was a lovely way to spend a Saturday morning. Teresa is a fantastic teacher and the perfect host. She is a master at what she does. The class itself was a lot of fun with plenty of things to try, and with only 4 of us there it was very personal. I can highly recommend it!"

"Lovely few hours with Teresa yesterday. We ran over a bit but were made to feel there was no need to rush. Great instruction and practice at techniques from Teresa and lots of choice of beads and fittings to use. She also gave us stuff to take away to practice with at home. Will be back for more."

"It was a lovely morning session learing about glass and how to create beautifull pieces of art. Teresa was very helpful in aiding me to find my inspiration and showed me a lot of examples as well as answered my questions well. It was especially nice when I wanted to make a pattern that was new to both of us; there Teresa used her knowledge to guide me and offered me the tools to try and create what I had in mind. Overall the experience was a very good creative outlet."

Alie reviewed: Beaded Jewellery Making

"This is the second course I have done with Teresa, and this one was just as brilliant as the first - which was enamelling. I got a lot out of the course, Teresa is full of knowledge and was super helpful and patient. I feel I have definitely learnt new skills that I can take away and use. All materials were provided and once I’ve had a bit more practice, I’m going to have a fabulous piece of jewellery to wear. Would definitely recommend a course with Teresa, she is a fab teacher and the studio space is an ideal place to learn new skills. I look forward to more courses here! Thanks so much!!"

Don't hesitate, just book, you'll love it"

Hazel reviewed: Enamel Bowls Workshop

"I would highly recommend this workshop. My husband and I both really enjoyed ourselves. I had no idea what to expect, but Teresa is an excellent teacher and we had such a fun and gently paced morning. No real artistic skill is needed to produce something that looks beautiful and unique. The process was much simpler than I had thought - anyone could do this. The exact outcome is somewhat down to luck, but Teresa guided us through our options and had lots of examples to show us which helped with decisions on colours and pattern. We each ended up with a gorgeous bowl that we are completely delighted with."

Lappelli Craft Studio responded:

" Hazel, thank you for your review.I’m so pleased that you enjoyed your morning and the gorgeous bowls you made ?"

"Had a lovely time on the fused glass course. Teresa is very knowledgeable and helpful and gives you lots of advice which is great. Really enjoyed making a range of suncatchers and still have the excitement of seeing the finished product once they have been fired. Would thoroughly recommend this workshop for beginners and more experienced glass workers looking to try something different."

Nick reviewed: Try Enamel workshop - suitable for all abilities

"Had a great session with Teresa today. I learnt a huge amount and came away with two nice pieces of enamelled copper that I’m really happy with, and I made them all myself, with advice from Teresa of course. Her workshop is spacious and well equipped, and there loads to choose from in materials. It seems the only limit is your imagination. I shall return in future."

Sue Swan reviewed: Fused Glass Jewellery Workshop

"I did this course with my daugther. The venue was relaxed and comfortable. Teresa gave clear instructions and ensured our safety. She gave us a free hand in the choice of materials and a free hand to be creative but was on hand with support or inspiration if needed. It was a great experience that allowed us to socialise whilst learning a new skill. The materials available allowed for lots of scope and I was very pleased with the item I was able to create."

"My mum and I did a "Have a Go" enamelling workshop this afternoon. It was an excellent course and Teresa was an excellent and very knowledgeable tutor. In just a couple of hours we had both created lovely pieces of jewellery and had learnt some basic techniques of enamelling. I would thoroughly recommend Teresa's courses. Can't wait to go back and do some more!"

Dr Miriam Silver reviewed: Try Enamel workshop - suitable for all abilities

"Teresa does fantastic workshops to learn crafts, particularly warm glass and enamelling. I did a full day workshop to learn to make enamel bowls, and it was probably the best crafting day I've done. We first made some small plaques, firing the powdered enamel in layers onto a copper blank, so I could learn to use stencils and different types of materials, including stringers, flakes and millefiore. Then I learnt to make my bowl, building up the layers on a copper blank until it was a glorious shiny peacock texture with blues and greens and golds shining through. I'd completely recommend checking out the workshops on offer, as Teresa was a great teacher, the quality of the work produced looked way more professional than I expected, and I came away really enthused about enamelling. She also made soup for lunch, carefully catering to everyone's needs, along with plenty of refills of tea. With the materials included, that made it amazing value for money, because I came away with three items and a new set of skills, having had a very enjoyable day."
