Thank you for another wonderful course! I am thrilled to bits with the beautiful jewellery I made, it was such an enjoyable couple of days. Melinda was a great tutor. Thank you so much and see you at leather making workshops in July!

Stone Carving (relief & 3D) sculpture for Beginners/Ints. - 3D- with Simon Keeley: a 'Quirky Workshop' at Greystoke Craft Garden & Barns near Penrith and Ullswater (Course inactive)

Very many thanks, Simon, for the inspiring and immensely practical course. I had wanted to try stonecarving for years.

You will see me again at one of your future course if I am lucky!

Gill said she felt all of her 84 years as we staggered back to the car with our lumps of stone - and my muscles this morning tell me which ones I used yesterday.- but we had such a wonderful time.

Thank you again.

Silver jewellery workshop: a 2-day 'Quirky Workshop' at Greystoke Craft Garden & Barns near Penrith and Ullswater

I thoroughly enjoyed this Silver Jewellery workshop. The tutor was excellent and very patient and encouraging. I was delighted with my results and it has certainly inspired me to get more tuition in the art of silver smithing. The Greystoke cafe certainly looked after us with a lovely lunch and superb refreshments. It was certainly one of the best workshops I have been on

Silver jewellery workshop: a 2-day 'Quirky Workshop' at Greystoke Craft Garden & Barns near Penrith and Ullswater

Melinda was lovely and absolutely brilliant at her craft. She was very patient and positive. She always complimented our work but at same time gave advice and guidance. Annie was also really lovely and made everyone feel right at home. The lunches and cream teas were gorgeous and the property is absolutely beautiful set in an idyllic village. I would highly recommend the whole experience.

Dear Annie ... I wanted to thank you for organising such a great stone carving course last week. It was perfect in so many ways. Simon was inspirational and great fun, the folk on the course were friendly and fun too and as always the catering, venue and attention you gave were exemplary. Have planted the land cress too! Thank you so much for everything - kind regards Anna.
