Half day - 3D Needlefelt Christmas Tree Decorations (Course inactive)

In-person course
- - #26614

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.

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!

I attended this course earlier this year, it is very good venue, drinks available at any time, with cake and nice lunch.

2 day - Chicken wire sculpture - make a 3D hare at Swallows & Artisans, Lake District (Course inactive)

In-person course
- - #17795

I had the most wonderful time, learning to sculpt a hare. The tutor Chris was amazing and informative. The location and view are wonderful and the lunch and homemade cakes were scrumptious. I am confident that I would be able to recreate another hare at home with the skills that I have acquired. I would recommend this two day course and will certainly be doing further courses at Swallows and Artisans!

I had a really enjoyable day making my duck amidst the beautiful Cumbrian scenery. The tutor was friendly, very well prepared and had time for everyone who needed individual help. The lunch that was provided was delicious, and so, too were the cakes at break-time. My duck is now happily living in her new home on our patio!

Response from Swallows & Artisans:

Hi Mary, thank you for your kind review. I'm pleased to hear that your duck is safely settled at home and that you enjoyed your day. The sun came out to give you a perfect view of the Old Man of Coniston too! I hope to welcome you again soon. Karen

Really enjoyed my recent calligraphy course at Swallows and Artisans. The stylish new workshop was the perfect venue. Caron our tutor was really helpful and we were soon making lovely greetings cards and gift tags to take home with us. This course is a great introduction to the craft and I came home bursting with enthusiasm and ideas. The venue is in a truly stunning location and I look forward to returning for another event sometime in the near future.
