Tracey Hurran reviewed: Macrame - Wall Hanging

"I attended Wendy's macrame wreath course yesterday with my friend and partner. Wendy was ready with all the materials laid out, examples on show to get ideas and plenty of patience when we asked lots of questions. It was a relaxed atmosphere in a nice workshop. We achieved a lot in the 2 hrs, and it was very satisfying having a finished wreath to take home. There are lots of craft items on display which will entice me back for the other courses that Wendy offers."

Jan V reviewed: Paper Making - Hand Made Recycled Paper

"This was a fun and rewarding course, with nigh-on instant gratification! Wendy made it easy to produce lovely pieces of paper from all the unwanted stuff that comes through our letterboxes, plus a variety of pretty embellishments. Outstanding value, easy to replicate at home with the frame provided, and good coffee too!"

Vanessa Gaier reviewed: Macrame - Wall Art

"Wendy was infinitely patient and kind. My best friend and I had her all to ourselves as we grappled with the art of knots by making something that resembled wall art. Thoroughly enjoyed the day and would highly recommend Wendy and her teaching. Lovely little space ❤️"

Jo Taylor reviewed: Natural Cold-Process Soap Making

"I attended this course with a friend who had booked it as a birthday treat for me (brilliant gift idea!). We both enjoyed our morning very much. Wendy's teaching style is relaxed and fun, while at the same time clear and informative with a focus on safety. We learned a lot about the fascinating science of soap making, and the choice of recipes on offer meant that we both came away with enough soap to make some very special Christmas gifts. Highly recommended."

Lynne Friel reviewed: Natural Cold-Process Soap Making

"I booked this workshop for two us and we both throughly enjoyed it. We learnt a great deal and we each came away with a large chunk of soap which I will cut and use some for Christmas presents. The workshop was carefully laid out and everything was ready for us. Once we had made the base recipe we could choose from six different soaps. Wendy teaches in a very relaxed way and shares her extensive knowledge of the subject. I can't recommend this workshop highly enough, I will be booking again."

Judy reviewed: Natural Cold-Process Soap Making

"I did this course with 2 friends. You do have to be very accurate but then making soap is a scientific process so it is to be expected. Wendy was very clear in her explanations and very patient with us all working at a slightly different pace. The time absolutely flew by and I am very pleased with the end product."

Karen M reviewed: Macrame - Wall Hanging

"Great fun learning how to create a macrame wreath. Wendy leads the way with the basic knots but you are given the freedom to continue to express your own style. There is a choice of wire shapes: heart, star, rainbow and many more. Then you can have one or two colours to make the macrame. So pleased with my shooting star that I bought two wireframes and the cord to make more at home for Christmas presents. Well worth the cost and two hours spent in a delightful craft room enjoying the company whilst learning how to create beautiful works of art. Thank you, Wendy."

JACKIE BROOKS reviewed: Wet Felted Flowers

"Myself and my sister-in-law did this course this week. The tuition, the space and the hot drinks (and biscuits!) were all excellent. Shame our skills didn't match up to this but we are still proud of our finished flowers and now feel quite able to have another go at home. Thank you for a very enjoyable morning."

Irene Holbourn-Lloyd reviewed: Natural Cold-Process Soap Making

"I have never made soap before, so all completely new to me. I found it more of a scientific process than crafting, perhaps if I did some at home I would have more of a chance for free expression? Interesting and one for people who enjoy exact precision in their crafts."

Suzzette Naylor reviewed: Macrame - Wall Hanging

"I love going to Wendy's, it's always comfortable and easy crafting. No pressure even when you get it wrong, Wendy is there with help and a solution. I bought loads of extra wires to make more at home for presents for the family. Really different and very simple to make, with a choice of colours and shapes so you don't get stuck with someone else's choices."

"We had great fun making a variety of candles with Wendy. It was a lovely, relaxed morning and Wendy is a great teacher. There is a choice of colour and fragrance for your candles and we also made some using beeswax. The shop is full of other goodies too and we certainly came away with more than just candles!"

"This was my first try at macrame. Wendy was really welcoming and helped us all as needed. Her instructions are really clear so it was hugely enjoyable and a place we could learn and have fun together. The plant hanger looks very professional. I will definitely be back for another course and with friends too."
