I attended this course within the last month and really enjoyed it. Lindsey was very patient, friendly and helpful and gave plenty of 1 on 1 attention to make sure I managed to create a bracelet and earrings and would be able to keep making them after the course. She was very generous with her knowledge and recommended suppliers for all of the equipment. She also showed us how to make beautiful boxes that we could present our jewellery in for gifts. I have subsequently made more earrings and bracelets. The course was a brilliant introduction that has opened up a new hobby which I'm really loving.

A birthday treat for my friend’s 50th. It’s three weeks ago now and the candles still smell very fresh. My friend and I both had some personal worries and after admitted that we had not thought about anything except which fragrance to choose and which dry flowers to decorate the jam jar candle! A good escape for the afternoon. Lindsay is very helpful. The downside was that the premises are a bit grim on arrival.

Response from Mount Cottage Crafts:Thank you Julie for your review, I am very pleased you enjoyed the afternoon. The venue is currently being repainted so will look less tired in the future. Many thanks Lindsey
What a brilliant time we all had. Lindsey gave excellent instructions and we all went home with good written instructions to continue with our candle making. The supplies and organisation were amazing and Lindsey kept us well supplied with tea coffee and biscuits! Oh and I bought a kit and am now looking to continue this craft making presents for friends and family and just to create something beautiful. Thank you Lindsey

Brilliant, relaxing, non-stressful introduction to making candles. Lovely supportive participants, and a gentle wonderful morning, with lots of yummy refreshments and heaps of encouragement to keep us going. Amazingly, my three very own candles are lovely, and I bought kits for myself and a friend to continue our adventure. Thank you, Lyndsey, enjoyed every minute.

Took my mum to this workshop for her birthday and we both had a fantastic time. Lindsey is a brilliant teacher and the instructions were clear and easy to follow. Mum and I ended up with three lovely candles each and big smiles on our faces. Thanks for a great afternoon Lindsey!

Great fun! Really enjoyed it. I'm delighted with my candles, my kitchen smells wonderful and I cannot wait to light them this evening!! I also bought a kit from Lindsey and I am looking forward to making more at home. Venue was great with parking on site. Biscuits were naughty but very nice!!
Thank you Lindsey!!!

I attended an afternoon course with Lindsay and really enjoyed having the chance to learn all about the process of making beaded jewellery. Lindsay’s explanations and demonstrations were really clear and I came away with a bracelet and earrings that I was really quite proud of. I have contacted Lindsay since completing the course with a query about sourcing clasps and she was happy to help. Highly recommended.

I was looking for a course for beginners and this exactly fitted the bill. I was particularly interested in how to secure the ends and clasps of bracelets and necklaces and I now feel competent to do this. The instruction was clear and precise with hands on help when needed. Lindsey was friendly and approachable and I would certainly recommend this course to others.

A fantastic way to spend a morning. As a beginner to this craft I found Lindsey approachable, informative and helpful. So lovely to come away with a bracelet and earrings you’ve made yourself. Learning how to make a presentation box was an added bonus and just as satisfying as making the jewellery!

I attended the bead making workshop last week.
Lindsey was very helpful and informative.
It is a great way to spend a morning learning a new skill. I found it very therapeutic.
I came away from the workshop with a bracelet, earrings and a box all of which I learnt to make from scratch.

The afternoon was brilliant! Lindsey was very organised, explained and demonstrated things clearly, created a friendly, relaxed environment, and made sure that everyone was included and had everything they needed to produce three beautiful candles. My car smelled wonderful all the way home!
This course was well worth travelling to. Thank you so much Lindsey!

Lindsey, you excelled yourself - you constantly made sure we were all looked after, you didn't rush us, you were clear in your instructions, and the morning flowed so well. Not only that, we learnt a new creative skill and took away some beautiful candles.
I have passed my delight on to others who I know would lovely your workshop.. I may even come along again one day.

I bought tickets to this Bead Jewellery Workshop for a gift. We absolutely loved it! It was the perfect level of difficulty (we are complete beginners). Lindsay had a huge range of beads to choose from and gave us clear instructions at our own pace. We made a bracket and a pair of earrings and keep showing people are creations days afterwards! We would highly recommend this workshop and hopefully we will book onto Lindsay candle making workshop soon. Many thanks!
