Melis Erden reviewed: Glove making workshop

"I've grown a new appreciation for glove making. Vajira has been so patient with us. It's a good idea not to have more than 3 people in this course, we needed so much attention! I would've been happier if we had maybe 1 more day. :) Great fun and relaxing! I appreciated Vajira let us put creative input into our making process even though we were total beginners. That excites me! Thank you!"

Jeanette Wright reviewed: Glove making workshop

"Had 3 tremendous days! So much concentration. I had not realised how many pieces go in to one glove. The venue was great, it just a pity it is so far from home. Vajira is very knowledgable about her craft. I could perhaps have done with one or two more days tuition."

Peiris Designs responded:

" Hi Jeanette, THanks you very much for coming a long way to do the workshop. I'm glad you enjoyed. Your gloves are beautiful. The intricate stitching is amazing. I'd love to see you make more and please send me some pictures. We can definitely do few more days if you like in X'mas gift workshop, in November. Looking forward to hear what Elise think about them. Many thanks!"

Geeske reviewed: Glove making workshop

"Dear Vajira, I am so glad that you've collected all the knowledge that I wanted and now I can start using :) Thank you so much for that! It was worth the 14 hours (back and forth) journey on the cold boat we travelled on from Holland. It's nice that you have all the samples, even with quirks, and that you are interested to develop your skills during the workshop yourself. We've learned a whole lot in 3 days, and now I feel like I want to experiment at home, and I'll send it to you when I've finished them! Hopefully you'll hear a lot from me. And then when I'm stuck with a problem, I'm sorry but I'm going to bother you ;) and take the next workshop next year and year after. It's quite exciting to go on from here. Thank you so much! Geeske"

" Hi Valka and Geeske, You are welcome!! and thank you both for your lovely, long and detailed feedback. It's my pleasure to teach you two enthusiastic students. I was so happy to see how enthusiastic you both were at the workshop and the beautiful gloves you made were amazing. I"m also glad that you've learnt about construction. I'm more than happy to answer any question you have re glove making in future- just drop a message or call me. It's interesting to see how you develop new ideas and overcome difficult construction problems of glove making- it's very challenging. You are welcome to learn again in advance glove making workshop. Also it's a pleasure spreading this rare technique and glad it is learnt and used by others. Thank you both for participating! Vajira x"
