Kathy reviewed: Silver Jewellery with Sea Glass SOLD OUT

"The course was excellent I learnt new skills from scratch and the tutor was patient and calm with a about 8 people learning. I would definitely do another course the venue was excellent. The sea glass course pm session takes longer and I think may have been helpful to have an assistant for the tutor with 8 people as there is a lot to do after lunch fixing the back plate and ring however she did this with us all and it was brilliant Thank you "

Micklems Farm Creative Workshops responded:

" Hi Kathy, Thank you for your lovely feedback, we're so glad you had an enjoyable day. We'll look forward to seeing you again soon! Madeleine"

Brian Burden reviewed: Coptic stitch handmade sketchbook

"Although I had made a few simple folded and single signature books I had never made a Coptic stitch book before. Janina took us through the process step by step, as well as providing one to one assistance where needed. Like many craft projects, the process takes practice and there are lots of tips and tricks which were passed on too. An enjoyable day and I feel sure there will be other courses that pull me back."

Micklems Farm Creative Workshops responded:

" Thank you Brian - hope we see you again soon! Rosemary"

Ailsa Medd reviewed: Precious metal clay jewellery

"All together, I would highly recommend this course. It is suitable for complete novices as well as those with some experience. Rosemary's teaching was informative and well structured; it didn't overwhelm or intimidate but was very helpful. I liked the way techniques were explained in stages, with opportunities to try new skills. The work areas were also spacious and thoughtfully organised for each person. The whole atmosphere was welcoming and friendly and everyone came away with a finished product that they were pleased with. The refreshments were also a nice touch! I would highly recommend this course."

Micklems Farm Creative Workshops responded:

" Thank you for your comments Ailsa."
