Carve a Silver Ring with Maggie Cross

Lovely evening, really engrossing process, and very pleased with our wax casts, can't wait to see the finished products (couldn't resist, had to make two rings!).

Beginner Weaving - Weave a Scarf in West Wales (Course inactive)

I had a lovely day learning to weave with Dunja. The beautiful setting, friendly people, quality materials and patient, knowledgeable tutor made it a very pleasurable day and I was very pleased with the results. I had a spare day's holiday unexpectedly and wanted to make the most of it and quietly industrious time learning with lovely people is always time well spent.

Upholster a drop-in seat in West Wales (Course inactive)

Excellent course. Well paced, learnt a lot and went home with a piece of furniture that I could be really proud of. Although Mick says he's not a teacher, he is good at explaining, and has a very good sense of when to intervene and when to let you get on with it. You make something under close guidance step-by-step, but feel that you have completed the article yourself.

Highly recommended.

Upholster a drop-in seat in West Wales (Course inactive)

This was an excellent course and this was simply down to Mick, he was a brilliant teacher, lots of time for each of us as well as teaching us in groups too. He us a perfectionist and equally wanted us to achieve perfection. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and the company of the others on the group. It was a very inclusive and supportive group with the bonus of fun too. Thank you to Suzi too, I received a lovely welcome from her plus she provided us all with regular refreshments.

Open Spine Bookbinding in West Wales (Course inactive)

Had a great day making my Open Spine bound book at Carole King’s workshop on Wednesday. Lots of different papers to choose from for the cover so this time I picked a very girly, red-hearts on blue background – definitely not my usual choice! Bit fiddly in places, but we all finished on time and everyone’s was very different. I love my book so will use it for all the small sketches and paintings I have done over the years rather than just look at a beautiful – but empty – book!

One day upholstery with Mick Sheridan in West Wales (Course inactive)

Fabulous day. I really enjoyed it.
An excellent introduction to traditional upholstery techniques, and we all came away with an item that we could be really proud of.
Mick explained everything really well and helped patiently when needed.
Highly recommended.

Indigo dyeing & Shibori (3 days) in West Wales (Course inactive)

Enjoyed this course so much! Cath, the tutor, was amazing, patient, generous and knowledgeable. There was plenty of room (and a wood fire, which was greatly appreciated as it poured with rain for two of the three days). We were made very welcome, with lovely and interesting food in abundance, and interesting people from many different backgrounds.
The course was suitable for people completely new to dyeing, and those with experience. I'd do it all again in a second.

Indigo dyeing & Shibori (3 days) in West Wales (Course inactive)

This was a very good course and lived up to all my expectations. The tutor was knowledgeable and very patient. It was great to get our hands into the dye and not worry about the mess. The venue was in lovely countryside and a perfect place to explore indigo dying. The food was excellent with everyone's needs catered for. Altogether three unforgettable days with lovely people and plenty of inspiration to continue with indigo and shibori.

From wax to silver - Carve a silver ring in Fishguard (at Peppers) (Course inactive)

I have just received my ring! Thank you sooooo much. It's really lovely and shows up every facet of the original carving. I only wish that I had more spare fingers to have an excuse to do it all again.

From wax to silver - Carve a silver ring in Fishguard (at Peppers) (Course inactive)

I’m lucky enough to have attended two of Maggie Cross’s ‘Make a Silver Ring’ workshops – and planning on a third – well taught – interesting and satisfying – thoroughly recommend.

Traditional Welsh Quilting with Lesley Jenkins in West Wales (Course inactive)

Had a fabulous 3 days on this course. Our tutor was really knowledgeable and more importantly for me in any case very patient. There are the things that may have improved the course the first was having our own cutting boards and the second was having a bit more time to practice the quilting techniques themselves although I think we were probably slower than other courses. So as I said a fabulous two days, a lovely tutor and lovely venue. Will definitly come again.
