Wonderful, learnt lots of new techniques and now produce much better prints. Very attentive and helpful teacher, lots of useful suggestions and background materials superb. Great venue, easy to find. Huge studio lots of light and big personal work spaces. Real coffee and homemade cake included. Sited in an amazing garden. Very inspirational day will definitely go again. Thank you for a wonderful day.
I loved this class and learned a lot from it.
Diana is a super teacher and the working environment was warm and welcoming.
All in all, a splendid day.
Response from Micklems Farm Creative Workshops:Thank you Julia - it was a wonderful day and as you say Diana is such a good teacher. See you again soon.
A most enjoyable and productive day. I am in the process of buying and collecting the materials suggested so that I can carry on at home.
Response from Micklems Farm Creative Workshops:Chrissy - that is great news. I know that was only the second time you had printed with lino and I was so impressed with your results. Happy printing!
Had a great day learning about oil painting, mixing colours, tone and shade values etc. Stunning venue and helpful, friendly teaching. Not too big a class so help is at hand when you need it.
Will definitely be back for more classes and would highly recommend.
Response from Micklems Farm Creative Workshops:Thank you Allison - hope to see you again soon.
A very relaxed, inspiring and informative workshop. I had so much fun on the course, using materials I've never used before.
I would highly recommend others attend!!
Response from Micklems Farm Creative Workshops:I agree Marsha - can't wait to see the results when they are fired.
I loved the course. Loved that all the equipment was provided. Very relaxed atmosphere as a lot of help when needed. Really looking forward to doing another one. I thought the venue was stunning and it was a real treat to spend the day there!
Response from Micklems Farm Creative Workshops:Thank you Emma - the results were amazing from that day. Shelagh is running another workshop on Thursday 19 March, again in oils - exploring abstraction. Would be lovely if you could come.
A great course, would recommend it highly to others.
Response from Micklems Farm Creative Workshops:Thank you Sally.
A thoroughly enjoyable day! Janina is an excellent tutor, who knows her stuff, has really prepared and communicates clearly. Micklems Farm is a welcoming and inspiring venue. All round the day was a creative feast!
Response from Micklems Farm Creative Workshops:Thank you Liz - it was lovely to work alongside you at the workshop!
This was an excellent course, clearly explained, interestingly challenging, well supported and essential for anyone wanting to improve their art skills. I loved it and would certainly recommend.
Response from Micklems Farm Creative Workshops:Thank you Fiona - I loved your work.
So many ideas fell into place on this great course packed with techniques with Janina. Now set up to continue creating more confidently at home. Fabulous Micklems Farm was as relaxed and welcoming and spacious (huge individual desk areas are such a bonus) as ever, thank you so much.
Response from Micklems Farm Creative Workshops:Thank you for coming! The big desks are a bonus on 'messy' workshops like printing and everyone seemed to produce so many beautiful prints.
I’m hooked. Karen is a mine of information and inspiration, she’s a very skilled talented artist and shares her expertise and techniques freely. I’ve learned more at Micklems Farm than on any other workshops, the tutors are amazing and it’s such a lovely place to be.
Response from Micklems Farm Creative Workshops:Thank you - so glad you enjoyed it. Another hobby to keep you busy!
Learned so much today in the glass fusing and carving course at this wonderful location. Shirley gave us loads of materials and tools to play with, there were some incredible results, I had no idea how versatile glass artwork can be. Came away with a new passion! Will definitely be back.
Response from Micklems Farm Creative Workshops:Thanks for your kind review - I'm so glad you enjoyed the course. Can't wait to see the finished results! Rosemary
I always love Karen’s classes, she gives us lots of expert demonstrations and inspiration, a truly professional talented artist who is generous with her knowledge. There were lots of materials to try out and new ways to experiment. Can’t wait for the next one.
Response from Micklems Farm Creative Workshops:Thank you for your review Michaela - keep and eye out for Karen's next class.
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.
Response from Micklems Farm Creative Workshops:Thank you Brian - hope we see you again soon!
A full on but nevertheless relaxing day at the delightful Micklems Farm.
Karen is always so generous with all the information on techniques that she shares, and with the great choice of materials available to try. A little haven of creativity!
Response from Micklems Farm Creative Workshops:Thank you Sandra.
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.
Response from Micklems Farm Creative Workshops:Thank you for your comments Ailsa.
A great day's workshop at this beautiful venue
Response from Micklems Farm Creative Workshops:Thank you Janina - so glad you enjoyed it.
I loved this workshop! It was a great way to spend the day. The surroundings were lovely and the Micklems Farm team were so friendly and welcoming. Our tutor was extremely good and very thorough in showing us some of the more complicated steps doing coptic stitch binding. I feel that I've learnt so much more about bookbinding. It's greatly added to my knowledge.
Response from Micklems Farm Creative Workshops:Thank you for your review - hope to see you here again.
I thoroughly enjoyed the day. The teacher was very encouraging, we had ample materials and many examples to choose from and the venue is a lovely old barn which has been converted into a beautiful studio. I am very pleased with the result and can highly recommend this course and any of the other courses run at this centre.
Response from Micklems Farm Creative Workshops:So glad your enjoyed the workshop - hope to see you at another one.
Had a great time and learnt a lot. Very pleased to have been able to complete a book and to learn the Coptic stitch.
Response from Micklems Farm Creative Workshops:Thank you for your review - it was great to have you here.
