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 was bought this lesson as a present. Really enjoyed it. Great instruction and I was pleased with the candles I made. Picked up lots of handy hints and Wendy makes a mean mug of tea too ! Would recommend for couples too, as it is great fun and good value in my humble opinion. Cheers, Mark"

Lesley Evans reviewed: Macrame - Chunky Rope Necklaces

"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! "

Marta reviewed: Macrame - Chunky Rope Necklaces

"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."

Janine Salvage reviewed: Natural Cold-Process Soap Making

"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."

"Took the course with my mom, we had a great time. The activity was the right amount of challenging and we’ve got two beautiful necklaces each to show for it. Value for money felt really good. Highly recommend!"

"I love Macramé and no better place to learn than with Wendy at the Little Craftery. She has the patience of a saint, very much needed in my case, And I came home with the sweetest little Christmas decs that I made myself. Not only that but the prices she charges are very affordable. With everything included."

Suzzette Naylor reviewed: Making Wax Wraps

"Finally! I know how to make wax wraps. Have tried with you tube and other 'learning' places and they all made a right mess of my kitchen and everything around me. However Wendy has this really simple way of making exactly the same (but somewhat better) thing with very little mess. Be careful is all she says. So I was careful and made three great wax wraps and now my sister is coming to visit me, I am making some more the Wendy way. My sister does lots of packed lunches and I have been promising to make her some for ages. It seemed so easy in a book or on line, forget it!! The Wendy way is so much easier. "

Suzzette Naylor reviewed: Introduction to Beaded Jewellery - West Sussex

"Although I had dabbled in making jewellery, Wendy showed me where I was going wrong and how easy everything should be. It was a small class and it felt like I was in friends workroom 'playing'. I made three pairs of earrings and a necklace in just a couple of hours. Not bad for an OAP, with arthritic fingers (and everything else)"
