Bud vases, buttons and tea lights in Porcelain with Gwen Bainbridge - Textures in Ceramics : a 'Quirky Workshop' at Greystoke Craft Garden & Barns near Penrith and Ullswater- Cumbria

I had a wonderful day at the Quirky Workshop. I'd never worked with porcelain before but Gwen explained everything really well, was very helpful when I struggled with delicate pieces. I managed to produce four items, plus a few trinkets, which I'm very proud of! The venue was a very relaxing place to be, food was excellent and kept me going. I'd recommend this course to anyone, and a voucher for a Quirky Workshop is on my Christmas wish list!

Artisan bread making day: a 'Quirky Workshop' at Greystoke Craft Garden & Barns near Penrith and Ullswater (Course inactive)

Gill was very helpful and informative and the bread we made was super tasty! I felt I learned a lot and I am confident enough to attempt making different types of bread at home.

There was maybe one too many people on the course as oven space was limited resulting in some damaged loaves. The course could maybe have been longer as we ran out of time to attempt all breads planned.

Overall the course was good fun and I am looking forward to trying other courses in the future.

Discovering Pen and Wash - Christmas Card making workshop:'Quirky Workshop' at Greystoke Craft Garden & Barns near Penrith and Ullswater

My first experience. It was a most delightful and rewarding day because of the encouragement of our tutor. This inspired confidence that only grew as we acquired useful skills that helped me improve my own style. Excellent food, company and range of techniques all contributed to a rewarding experience. Thank you.

Had a wonderful day, I have no hesitation in recommending this course, was great fun learning a new craft amongst like-minded people, eating lovely food and sharing banter in a perfect setting. Annie is awesome and the Quirky workshops at the Cycle Cafe are a real treat day away from it all, can't wait to return!

This course is fab - I had no idea what a large and lifelike goose I would be making. I also thought mine would never look like the course leader's model. But it does. I am so proud of it and love having it in my garden. The course was extremely well managed, great fun and totally absorbing. I plan to do more.

Make a needle felt Herdwick doorstop, hare, owl family, hedgehog or bunny at Greystoke Craft Garden & Barns

I have been on a number of courses here and they have all been excellent. My herdwick doorstop is lovely and even admired by James Rebanks of "shepherds life' fame. The food is lovely too, I always eat too much!

What a great day !
The venue is lovely, with a great atmosphere. The course was excellent, all the materials required were provided. The tutor showed all the steps and no sewing is required. We all went home with our own doorstop - wonderful.
There are so many courses available, I will be returning.
Vouchers are available which make great gifts.
