"What a lovely few hours spent at The Little Craftery on the beginners mosaic course with Wendy. I learnt all I need to know to get started with some of the mosaic ideas I have for home. Wendy Is well organised, patient and knowledgeable, she has a wide range of resources for participants to use and gives clear instructions and sound advice. I highly recommend Wendy and the little craftery to learn and develop your crafting skills or to purchase as a gift. "

Laura Kidd reviewed: Introduction to Candlemaking

"Really fun and relaxed afternoon. structured tuition but lots of freedom within that for your own creative expression and design ideas. Lots of tea and coffee set to a background of eighties music. What's not to like. Suitable for all ages and abilities small groups so plenty of space for 1 on 1 advice. Thanks Wendy you are a 5 star gal x"

Susannah H reviewed: Natural Cold-Process Soap Making

"My mother, sister and I did this course together and it was great fun! We all really enjoyed learning a bit more about the process and working together to create three different soaps. Wendy was very patient and really took her time to explain what we were going to do, and why. Now we have to wait for four weeks to try our soap, but I'm sure it will be worth the wait!"

"I have done several classes with Wendy and have never been disappointed. She is innovative with her designs and so patient with her students. I am 73 and falling apart at the seams but still Wendy takes time to make sure I am comfortable and enjoying myself. Which I always do. These necklaces were a lot of fun to make, and will be fun to wear too. "

"A really enjoyable few hours learning to make different types of earrings as well as learning more about making necklaces and bracelets. Wendy has the patience of a saint and not only explains techniques well but demonstrates them too! Will be going back for more!"

Kate reviewed: Natural Cold-Process Soap Making

"What a great workshop! I'd been looking for a cold process soap workshop for some time, rather than the ubiquitous melt and pour workshops, and this was exactly what I was looking for. Wendy made it all easy, and we had so many options it was hard to decide what to make. I can't wait to see how my soap comes out in a few weeks time."

Frances reviewed: Eco Soy Wax Container Candles

"Doing this workshop was a successful birthday present for my young adult daughter. We both enjoy burning candles so wanted to have a go at making them using natural materials. We enjoyed Wendy's style of teaching – calm and patient, with her attitude of "There's no right or wrong, it's all an experience to learn from.". Happy atmosphere, cups of tea, music in the background, and a detailed booklet to take home so we didn't have to spend time making notes. We thoroughly enjoyed it!"

Rita Clarke reviewed: Double-Sided Lampshade Making

"This course was excellent and I was more than pleased to return home with a very professional looking lampshade. Wendy obviously loves her crafts, she is keen to pass on her knowledge and ideas. I agree with other reviews in saying that Wendy is talented, friendly, helpful and patient. The Little Craftery is such a welcoming environment, with samples of her 'makes' to inspire you."

Elaine Monument reviewed: Double-Sided Lampshade Making

"Absolutely loved this course & very proud of the 30cm shade that I made. There was a slight hiccup with the course communication which meant I turned up without any fabric but this was promptly resolved by Wendy. Overall a great experience and Wendy is very patient & very talented! I'm looking forward to creating more shades & attending other craft courses with Wendy. "

Melanie G reviewed: Double-Sided Lampshade Making

"This was my third course at this delightful place. Wendy is so patient and helpful. Myself and the other student are slow learners so we overran the allotted time. Although Wendy had another class in the afternoon she didn't hurry us at all which was great as I took my time and was so pleased with the end result. I've previously attended candle making and soap making classes here and can't recommend it highly enough. I will definitely be returning "

"I recently made a chunky macrame necklace with Wendy. The class was well attended and the pace was just right. I didn’t feel pressured to complete quickly and even had time to make another two. Wendy makes you feel very welcome and felt it was a relaxed afternoon. Thank you! "

"I recently did a macrame necklace workshop with Wendy in The Little Craftery and it was fabulous! Clear instructions on how to make your very own modern necklace, and lots of materials types and colours to choose from. I not only had a great time but I came out with a skill I can use it to make fantastic gifts for my friends and family."

"I did the soap making course with my daughter and we loved it! Wendy was very friendly and explained the process clearly step by step. The Craftery is a lovely space to work in and we had a great afternoon making soap, and can't wait to make more. Really looking forward to doing our next course. Great fun & good value. Thank you Wendy"

Julie Shute reviewed: Wet Felted Pots

"I went with my 2 sisters and this is the second felting course we've had with Wendy; the first being flowers and this being pots. Both times have been thoroughly enjoyable. Wendy is calm, friendly, and encouraging and explains things simply and clearly, it also helps that she creates alongside so for those who learn better from watching rather than listening, it's a bonus. The shop is a treasure trove of creations and is very inspiring. The coffee is delicious and time flies by. The technique for felting pots is quite physical but very satisfying. I'm looking forward to booking another lesson soon to create something else. And it's a great idea for a birthday gift too. I'd thoroughly recommend The Little Craftery."
