Steve Marnier reviewed: Mosaics for Beginners - West Sussex

"Excellent day. The basics are very easy but complex curves are a challenge. However the final grouting transforms everything! Wendy is a great guide and source of inspiration, and she covers a multitude of craft skills"

Lorraine Willis reviewed: Wet Felted Flowers

"This was the second wet felting course because we enjoyed the first one so much. The instructions were clear and having the instructor making one at the same time helped a lot. She was encouraging and friendly and I would recommend to anyone."

"I thoroughly enjoyed the course. Haven’t concentrated so much for ages!! Lots of different coloured glass to work with and Wendy was at hand for advice. I was pleased with my almost end result, it was nice and colourful. Wendy has offered to grout it, although You also have the option to do this yourself. Wendy offered us refreshments and biscuits to keep us going"

Ruth Carty reviewed: Wet Felted Pots

"Bought this as a birthday gift and we weren’t disappointed. Spent a very happy morning crafting a beautiful little pot each - surprisingly energetic and a lot of work goes into each little pot, but it’s so satisfying and Wendy is a very reassuring and helpful tutor. We were well supported at each stage of the process and left with our creations, wanting to have another go and make another of these unique little pots- so we bought the wool from Wendy and can’t wait to try it at home!

Sarah Gibbs reviewed: Introduction to Beaded Jewellery - West Sussex

"I thoroughly enjoyed my 2.5 hours with Wendy yesterday for the Beaded Jewellery course. I made a bracelet and a pair of earrings, and I have bought some tools from Wendy so that I can continue at home with threading and making some jewellery from beads that I have already collected. It is quite an intricate skill to learn and Wendy guided me through it step by step. It was a throughly relaxing and enjoyable afternoon."

"I thoroughly loved learning how to do mosaic yesterday with Wendy. she is a great tutor, very knowledgeable in many craft areas and very patient...especially as I was learning a new skill. I so enjoyed the experience and am aiming to make more mosaics at home. I would definitely recommend attending one of Wendy's classes, they are fun and relaxing. A great day out. I shall be heading back to her lovely studio to learn felting next time. "

Kevin Goodwin reviewed: Mosaics for Beginners - West Sussex

"I did this course with my partner last Friday in Wendy's workshop. We had not tried mosaics before. It was very instructive and good that she was working on a small piece in parallel with us. Wendy had a wide range of tiles to choose from, ranging from small squares to larger ones, offcuts of tiles, circular ones, shiny ones, pebble shaped ones, etc, in a diverse range of colours and hues. The 4 hours went surprisingly quickly and we opted to take the pieces home to grout after she demonstrated how to do this, although you can leave them with Wendy to do if you wish. The location is close to parking and the background music in the workshop great as you disappear into relaxing mosaic making. Definitely worthwhile doing and we are already thinking about mosaic projects to do at home having taken the course."

Naomi reviewed: Paper Making - Hand Made Recycled Paper

"My husband and I had a great time on Wendy's paper-making course to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Wendy had everything so well organised, and she explained really clearly how to do each step, along with demonstrating it for us before we then had a go. We came away with some lovely pieces of handmade paper, and we plan to make some more here at home! "

Anna reviewed: Macrame - Wall Art

"Spent a lovely afternoon with a friend doing the macrame wall hanging. Wendy went through the steps at our pace and, when necessary, was excellent at identifying where we had gone wrong and how to correct ourselves. The course could be improved with an handout to remind you of the knots names with ‘how to’ reminders; we were concentrating so much, we forgot to write anything down!"

Kath reviewed: Macrame - Beaded Bracelet

"I absolutely loved my Macrame plant hanger class with you yesterday. My plant is hanging in the window right now. However, I will have to make a new home for the plant as it is too hot there, but I couldn't wait to use my beautiful hanger. I am well impressed with myself for achieving this master piece under your very friendly, relaxed class. I will be telling my sisters all about it tomorrow night on our monthly girlie night. Thank you so much. "

The course was very well organised; all the equipment was laid out ready for us and Wendy was very good at explaining what we needed to do and offering lots of instruction on the different ways we could achieve different effects.
