I had a wonderful time at the Tread Softly sewing workshop. I had some experience of doing cross stitch before the class but I had never done anything outside of that. I wasn't expecting to learn as much as I did and I'm delighted to say that I now know how to do lots of different types of stitches and I got a beautiful felt hanging at the end of it too... made by my own fair hands!
Hannah is patient and very good at explaining things which definitely helped with the more complicated stitches.
Overall, it was a delightful morning, I learnt new skills, had lots of giggles and came away from it with a lovely bear felt hanging. I would highly recommend and I can't wait to book onto more of the workshops in the New Year!

I booked on Hannah's embroidery course with my mum on Mother's Day and we both had such a lovely and relaxing afternoon.
Hannah is a fountain of knowledge for anything arts and craftsy. I absolutely love her designs as they are original and unique. Hannah is so patient and the small group size meant that no one in the group got left behind. From not knowing anything about embroidery or sewing in general, I'm now confident with a range of stitches that I can use at home. I can't recommend it enough. I will definitely be back!

A really fun way to learn a new skill from an excellent teacher!
I really enjoyed my session and was very pleased with my creation even though I had no prior experience.

Judy and I thoroughly enjoyed our morning with you. You were instructive, and brilliant at guiding us, giving us assistance when necessary. An excellent class!

Fantastic course, highly recommended. Lucy explains the basics in a professional, clear and unpretentious way.
I got exactly what I needed out of the course.

As a self-taught amateur photographer, I really wanted to hone my skills and learn about the basics from a professional. I'm a travel blogger, so I need to have amazing images for my site, and following from my day learning how to use my camera with Lucy, I feel like I can now push my images to the next level. Would highly recommend this course to anyone who is picking up their DSLR for the first time or someone who already knows the basics but wants to feel more confident with their camera.

Lucy organised a fantastic workshop for beginners. The basic principles were laid out clearly with opportunities to practise and ask lots of questions. I would highly recommend.

In a sentence: a brilliant way to have a creative afternoon, in great company where you actually like the thing you make!
I'd never done Cyanotope before but others on the course had and the workshop seemed to work for all. Lucy was really friendly, approachable and provided us with guidance, lots of tips along the way and beautiful materials to work with. I came away with 7 pieces of my own art work that I'd be proud to hang on my wall. A really satisfying way to spend a half day.

Just had the BEST time on this course. It was so interesting to hear all about the history of the process and then we had so much time to experiment with all the amazing props that Lucy provided. There were so many options from feathers and leaves to wooded shapes and glitter and we were provided with so many pieces of paper to work with so we ended up taking away a lot of special pictures. It was a beautiful space to really be creative - really can't recommend it enough - especially if you find it hard to make time in your life to tap in to your creativity. Such a beautiful process and a really happy day!

Lucy's Cyanotype course was just brilliant. She is a wonderful teacher and not only informed me of the incredible history of cyanotype but made every step super clear and I really felt like I had achieved a creative goal of mine by the end of the workshop. The whole vibe was friendly and relaxed and it is held in a brilliant space that helps you tap in to your creative self. There was tea and biscuits too which in my books is a big brucey bonus!
Honestly cannot recommend this workshop enough.

I had the best time at Lucy's cyanotype course! Lucy taught us both the history of cyanotype printing and showed us how we can make beautiful prints through this quick and easy process. With all the props she had available we were able to tap into our creative selves and let them run wild! With ten minutes to go we were all trying to squeeze in just one more idea from the many that came from the room. Couldn't recommend this enough to absolutely anybody! Thank you so much Lucy, and see you again!

I had such a great time on Lucy's Cyanotype course. She is a great teacher; super patient, passionate and fun. I now have a personal collection of cards for Christmas which look amazing - the workshop has inspired me to get back in the darkroom. Oh, and the tea and biscuits were delicious too!

Recently attended the scatter cushion course. It was a lovely, creative environment with gorgeous fabrics to choose from. Simion was a very patient teacher ensuring the day was very relaxed and good fun. I am so pleased with my cushion would highly recommend 👍

I came on the course with very few sewing skills and created an amazing stool which takes pride of place in the living room.
Step by step instruction by Simion , who was very patient and an excellent tutor.
I would highly recommend Reloved works.
An added bonus, we were presented with a beautiful collection of upholstery fabrics and chalk paints in which to choose from. A wonderful experience.

A little nervous when I arrived but soon chilled as Simion took use through the stages of assembling the cushion.
I am so excited about the completed cushion including the matching buttons.
My family don't believe I made it, it really is that good.
Excellent tuition Simion, thank you.
