Abderrachid el Ahmadi reviewed: One-to-one 3 day lampshade making masterclass including business startup guide for crafters

"Moji taught us the techniques of 2 complete different styles of lampshades within 3 days. With all her enthusiasm and patient skills she took us by the hand step by step. She really takes the time to explain well, in detail, and feels responsible that you will leave inspired, crafted and with beautiful handmade lampshades. She is able to multitask, provides lovely lunch in between and makes pictures of your personal activities. So that you have a reference afterwards. On top of this all she takes you through some basics of marketing to start your own business. We had a wonderful time, which varied from instruction to many laughs. These three wonderful days are well worth your money."

Moji Designs responded:

" Dear Rachid, Thank you so much for your kind and thoughtful words. I thouroughly enjoyed having you and yes indeed we had lots of fun and laughter. Thank you for being such an amazig student and also for my beautiful gifts you and Brunia brought for me from Amsterdam. I look forward to seeing your future lampshade projects alongside your beautiful upholstered pieces. Take care and happy making! With lots of love Moji x"

Valerie P. reviewed: One-to-one 5 day lampshade making masterclass with Moji Designs, including business startup guide for crafters

"I recently completed Moji's 5-Day course and added an extra day for good measure, and I can thoroughly recommend it to anyone who wants to get serious about lampshade making. Having made a few lampshade in the past I was hooked but I wanted someone to help me take it further and I was so glad to have found Moji. Moji is the perfect tutor. Her patience, professionalism and encouragement the whole way has given me the confidence to move forward with improving my skills and building my business. She shared her knowledge, not just of her craft but also business skills, with generosity and enthusiasm. Having travelled light, I didn't need to worry about anything like fabric, notebooks, lunches etc Moji thought of everything, and comprehensive notes were supplied at the end. Her studio space is so welcoming and the learning experience so relaxed. And did I mention lunches? They were delicious! I am so looking forward to returning again to learn textile printing!"

Moji Designs responded:

" Dear Valerie, Thank you so much for taking the time writing this great review! It was a pleasure having you at the studio and I am also looking forward to seeing you back again for a printing course. Take care and happy making! M x"

Hee-eun reviewed: One-to-one 3 day lampshade making masterclass including business startup guide for crafters

"This class is very satisfying as it is designed to allow students to fully focus on learning new skills. Students who came from a long distance to take this class do not have to pay attention to preparing meals or taking notes during class. So I was able to learn many new skills in a short period of three days. The studio is very comfortable and Moji is very friendly and kind. It was really helpful to me in preparing for my new business. I want to take another class from Moji in the future."

Moji Designs responded:

" Dear Hee-eun, Thank you for your kind words. I am looking forward to working with you again and in the meantime all the best for your future plans and happy creating. Best, Moji "

Jessica Santisteban reviewed: One-to-one 3 day lampshade making masterclass including business startup guide for crafters

"I had the pleasure of spending 3 amazing days at Moji’s studio in Brighton, England. I learned how to make the gathered and pleated lampshades - it was such a wonderful experience, I did not want it to end! I wish I had booked 5 days, so I will need to return for more classes in the future. Moji is a wonderful teacher, it's clear her skills and knowledge are honed from decades of experience. I appreciated all her business advice, she genuinely offers her wisdom to you. More than that, she is so enjoyable to spend the day with and we had a lot of fun together. I went home with 2 beautiful lampshades and I’m so excited to buy the supplies and start making more! "

Carine reviewed: One-to-one 5 day lampshade making masterclass with Moji Designs, including business startup guide for crafters

"Spending 5 days with Moji in her studio was a real pleasure. No online tutorial or book can replace a real hands-on workshop with someone who knows the ins and outs of the lampshade. Moji provided me with the techniques I need to go on and experiment on my own with confidence. Moji is so welcoming, she made the whole experience truly enjoyable. It was like visiting a friend. From the playlists to the delicious food, her workshop is ideal. I will definitely be back for some more in the future. Thank you, Moji!"

Moji Designs responded:

" Dear Carine, Thank you so much for your kind words and leaving such an excellent review. I do appreciate you taking the time out to share your learning experience with me at the studio. I am here for you anytime, should you need any post-workshop support and so looking forward to having you back again for more courses. Best wishes, Moji"

"Thank you Moji for such a wonderful course! I feel i learnt a lot in the space of a day. Your studio is warm and welcoming, everything is extremely well prepared and clearly explained to allow the best use possible of the time we had. I really enjoyed the intensity of the class, we did not stop, we had a goal and we reached it, creating a perfect traditional gathered lampshade. I left with enough understanding and technical information to be able to make the same thing again on my own in the future. it feels like a fantastic achievement!

Phoebe reviewed: One-To-One 1 Day Bespoke Lampshade Making Tuition Including Business Startup Guide for Crafters

"I had the best day completing my 1:2:1 workshop with Moji. Her studio is beautiful and inspiring and I learnt so much about lampshade construction and the craft during my time spent on the workshop. I had no prior lampshade making experience, yet I was able to complete a beautiful gathered lampshade that completely exceeded my expectations! Moji is an excellent teacher and explained everything so clearly and patiently. The 1:2:1 experience meant Moji was able to really clearly demonstrate all the techniques, giving me time to work through each stage and answer all of my questions as we went along. I feel equipped with the knowledge to go on and make many more lampshades and I’m excited to see where this journey takes me."

Not only her attention to detail and patience with me as a relative beginner, but she is also kind and funny... we laughed a lot. It's hard work and the day is made all the better by a delicious lunch! I most appreciated Moji's business advice which was detailed but explained in a simple way that i could understand. I am so excited to be starting my lampshade journey."

Lucy reviewed: Pleated lampshade making workshop with Moji Designs in London, Minerva Workshop

"I absolutely loved the course. Moji was delightful, knowledgeable, patient and great fun! It was a complete pleasure to learn this skill. I was thrilled with my lampshade and have since made about 4 more - each one slightly better than the last. It takes practice but it is a wonderful project and I have thoroughly enjoyed making the shades. I would be very keen to do the next course - gathered lampshades and will sign up as soon as I can. Thanks again Moji and apologies it has taken me a while to do this review! Lucy"

Annegien Loudon-Koudijs reviewed: One-to-one 5 day lampshade making masterclass with Moji Designs, including business startup guide for crafters

"I really enjoyed the 5 day masterclass lampshade making by Moji. She is an excellent teacher. She is fun, a real professional and she is strict and pushes you to perfection. She doesn't want you to settle for less. She really aims for quality, even in the learning proces. I like that. It was an intensive course and I made 4 differnet types of lampshades, so I really got a good sense for the carft. What I also liked was her passion for crafst in general and especially for the lampshade making. While working we talked a lot about craftmanship and about setting up a business for a lampshade maker. What does it take to set up such a business? How do you build a collection? How about pricing? etc. I could ask everyting I wanted to know. I really liked this very professional and business approach. That was what I was looking for. And besides her excelent teaching she prepares lovely lunches!! It was the trip, dealing with all the covid regulations and the costs more than worthwhile! A huge thank you!"

Moji Designs responded:

" Thank you so much for your kind words Annegien. I am so glad to hear that you enjoyed the course and I am looking forward to seeing your ideas come to fruition. A huge thank you to you too for attending my course despite all the restrictions and difficulties around traveling to UK from Holland. I am so grateful that you chose to work with me and I wish you the best in all you do!"

Gillian Day reviewed: One-to-one 3 day lampshade making masterclass including business startup guide for crafters

"I loved my 3 day lampshade making course with Moji, it was wonderful to be taught by such a professional with such patience and talent, sitting in her beautiful studio, surrounded by craft and being given a delicious lunch each day, it all made a very enjoyable and creative experience. I am thrilled with my 3 lampshades, all very different in style and technique, hard work but so satisfying and I can’t wait to get down to making some at home, following all the notes and photos that Moji has provided. With best wishes"

Caroline reviewed: One-to-one 5 day lampshade making masterclass with Moji Designs, including business startup guide for crafters

"I thoroughly enjoyed the course – although quite intensive, it's a great ‘escape’ from everyday life. It’s amazing how the hours just fly by when you’re absorbed in something creative! I really appreciated Moji's take on seeing lampshade-making as a craft to do with patience and to take time to enjoy each step and the skills involved – it is definitely not something that can be rushed. I will need to remind myself of this when I do my own projects. The true test of the course success is that I can't wait to start on my own projects. Thank you Moji !"

"A full on day-packed with information. Thoroughly enjoyed making the lampshade - Moji gave instruction, tips and advice on how to make it and took pics at every stage, so I have something to go back to when I make one myself which I thought was a good idea! The business advice left me with lots of questions to answer going forward but all good. Lunch was tasty too! All in all a very enjoyable way to spend a Sunday - would recommend!"
