Philippa Lewis reviewed: Half day - 3D Needlefelt Christmas Tree Decorations

"I spent an afternoon felting Christmas decorations in the gorgeous Swallows and Artisans workshop. I was new to needle felting and this was a great introduction. I left with an angel and Christmas pudding and the knowledge and skills to go away and continue the craft. Hanne was an excellent tutor who is clearly passionate about her craft and took time to assist everyone when needed. I stayed overnight in the adjacent Lanehead which I would highly recommend to anyone wanting a crafty break."

Pippa Lewis reviewed: Beginners modern calligraphy with a Christmas twist at Swallows & Artisans

"Spent a lovely day at this gorgeous venue learning modern calligraphy with a Christmas twist. I left with a bundle of gift tags that I had created, a gift box, wrapping paper, card and bauble. More importantly I left with the skills, knowledge and tools to continue practicing the craft. A fabulous tutor who gave individual attention, assistance and encouragement and has inspired me to continue. The venue is amazing, I stayed overnight in the adjoining Lanehead and enjoyed a really restorative and mindful couple of days. Highly recommended."

Linda Logie reviewed: 2 day course to learn illuminated lettering at Swallows & Artisans, Lake District

"Very good instruction. Many techniques were explained clearly and carefully by Sarah, with all materials provided to try out a wide range of gold and metal illumination. The venue was excellent with Karen ensuring a pleasant lunch and delicious homemade cake and biscuits kept our concentration and energy levels intact!"

"Absolutely loved it! A lovely welcoming atmosphere in a beautiful space. I've since ordered my own extra materials so that I can continue with what I learnt at home."
