"My mother and I were met at the entrance of the building and taken to the workshop. Tamar is very personable and put us at ease instantly. We were asked if we would like a drink and a biscuit as we settled at our space and then talked through the stages of the class and additional housekeeping like being shown where the toilets were if we required them.
We started by choosing the colour of leather, thread and poppers we wanted to use and then we got started. The class comprised of demonstrations by Tamar at every stage, with information about the different tools, what they did and answers to any further questions we had.
Tamar provided 1:1 support whenever we needed it and the group gelled nicely talking about other classes we had all done previously.
Tamar was very good at genuinely praising everyone's progress and final products.
Compared to other classes I have done I felt well supported and that the person running the class cared about the people there. Tamar made sure we enjoyed the experience. She shared something she loves doing and teaching, in the hope that we love it too.
Sincere thanks Tamar, I would not hesitate to recommend you to others seeking a first-class experience of a new craft that is not only superb value for money but an excellent learning experience."
The City Workshop Edinburgh responded:
" Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review. It was a pleasure to welcome you to a leatherwork class and I'm delighted to hear how much you enjoyed the experience. Enjoy using your beautiful leather case and I hope to welcome you back again for another class in the future."
