Hayley reviewed: Mosaics for beginners - West Sussex

"This workshop is excellent and I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to learn something new. The choice of mount type and shapes was really good as was the different types of mosaic tiles. Wendy was really nice and extremely helpful and was always willing to listen to any questions I had. All equipment was provided to ensure we could fulfil the course safely. The explanations were clear and really useful. I thoroughly enjoyed my time at this course and have already purchased lots of mosaic bits to start new projects at home. Thank you Wendy for a fantastic few hours and more importantly for your time."

Sue reviewed: Making wax wraps

"Really relaxed course and as usual Wendy was fun and informative in her instruction (and she makes a decent cup of tea). This course was fun to do and I am really pleased with my wax wraps which have already been put to good use. Will definately being buying some supplies from Wendy to make some more."

Suzzette Naylor reviewed: Beaded snowflakes

"I did this course with Wendy, pre covid and although there were four of us, she never got flustered or upset when one of us made a mistake, which was pretty often as we were all newbies. I still have my snow flake and two more (from kits I bought from here) as does my granddaughter. I gave her one for Christmas. Wendy is lovely and knowledgeable, she doesn't 'wing it'; she is well prepared for whatever she is doing and it is a very pleasant way to spend a couple of hours."

Suzzette Naylor reviewed: Macrame - wall art

"There was only me as Wendy is only doling small classes or singles at present due to the virus. But I got on really well. I did another macrame with her so had a little bit of a head start but still I'm not very good but Wendy is very patient and watches everything you do and helps to stop making a mistake that will take a long time to undo and redo. I'm so proud of it, and Wendy gave ideas how I could adapt this hanging to be a little different and how to go on and make others. You get all the supplies you need and instructions to take home to try it at home. I love it there. Can't go wrong, either on your own or with up to two friends, you will everything Wendy teaches and there is a lot. Even for me that crafts all the time. There is always something new."

Suzzette Naylor reviewed: Hand rolled beeswax candles

"I attended this class some while ago, and had a great time. Bought some more supplies and went and showed them at church, and at my annual get together with my sisters. (prior to covid) Everyone I showed found it very easy, because thats the way Wendy shows you how to do it. Easily. Good value too because you take home what you make."

N Sterland reviewed: Double-sided lampshade making

"Fantastic course would highly recommend it. Total zone out for three hours, enjoyed Wendy humour and her patience. The lampshade look fantastic. What I like is Wendy attention to detail, she provides techniques/tips for a professional finish and helped me achieve this. So pleased and very chuffed with my personalised lampshade."

Rachel reviewed: Mosaics for beginners - West Sussex

"Thoroughly enjoyed some time out for myself, (it was my birthday treat) making a a mosaic of a beach hut. Something simple that I could finish in four hours, frame & put on my wall. It's beautiful & I just love it. Wendy was lovely, very friendly & helpful. I felt relaxed. Gorgeous cosy little studio too!"

Suzzette Naylor reviewed: Macrame - beaded bracelet

"I made this bracelet before the Covid restrictions, and it was my first attempt at Macrame. I gave the bracelet to my sister and she loves it, very pleased as she is very difficult to please. And I enjoyed making it. I have done several classes with Wendy and am never disappointed, she is welcoming and patient, she needs to be with me I'm afraid. I do a lot of crafting but always go to Wendy to learn new crafts. She gives me an excellent basis on which to build skills to go and make other things, or indeed teach others at church."

Suzzette Naylor reviewed: Macrame - feather

"I have made a few things with Wendy and whilst I am a 'seasoned' crafter, Wendy always finds something new that intrigues me. The Macrame feather was my second attempt at Macrame and even though Wendy had to tell me several times where I had gone wrong, she never lost patience with me. Just corrected where I went wrong and off we went till next time. Due to Covid, her classes are smaller than usual but even so they are fun, I would recommend The Little Craftery to anyone who wants to learn a new craft."

Irene Holbourn-Lloyd reviewed: Wet felted flowers

"After all the restrictions of the last year was wonderful to finally get to make some wet felted flowers. My first attempts were not too bad, thank you Wendy for your patience, and I have come away inspired to do more."

The Little Craftery responded:

" Thanks Irene! Your flowers were beautiful (and I fully intend to copy your colour choices next time)! I look forward to seeing you again at your candle making class in June. :)"

Jenny reviewed: Introduction to candlemaking

"I recently attended Wendy's workshop in candle making, as I'm an avid candle fan and wondered if I could master making my own. Wendy's teaching style is gently relaxed and patient, with pleasant music in the background and great coffee. I soon created an assortment of candles in different styles and colours, but it was rolling beeswax candles that really set me afire...I loved the natural scent and appearance of my creations. Her workshop has given me the confidence to have a bash at home and has set my creative tastebuds tingling. Thank you so much."

Claire reviewed: Mosaics for beginners - West Sussex

"Mosaic making is the second course I have thoroughly enjoyed with Wendy at The Little Craftery and I’m eager to try more! Wendy ensures everyone is happy and relaxed and comfortable with everything they need to do. Nothing is too much trouble and Wendy has thought of everything for you, from finished pieces and patterns for inspiration to drinks and biscuits. I wholeheartedly recommend any of Wendy’s courses - you won’t be disappointed!"

Ann reviewed: Mosaics for beginners - West Sussex

"Great mosaic workshop, superb, highly recommend!!! Here’s the deets, if you’re into info: Wendy is a great teacher. Very patient, kind and she set up a lovely atmosphere and crafting environment with everything laid out for us. It included all the tools and materials, with a very wide array of colours and different shapes and styles of mosaic tiles and gems. We were given choices for the mount type and shape, including glazed frames. Wendy also offered a great range of images and ideas to help us in our designs. The safety explanations were also very clear and the equipment was provided to ensure we did the cutting and pasting safely. I have never attempted any form of glass or tile work before and am quite limited in ability. With Wendy’s clear explanations, demonstrations and patience with questions, even I managed to produce a reasonable mosaic. What is also very helpful and inspiring is that Wendy created a beautiful mosaic alongside us. Everyone there made a great mosaic - I was really impressed with them! We had the choice of finishing off the grouting ourselves, or have Wendy do them. I think we all opted for the latter. I collected mine a couple of days later and found it beautifully and carefully packed - and the grouting and framing was great. Also, worth noting is that Wendy was very generous with the tea and coffee and chocolate biscuits. I am very lucky to live 10 minutes walk from The Little Craftery. It is a great location, on a lane called Field Row, which opens off Montague Street (pedestrianised), up beside Superdrug and more or less opposite Marks and Spencer. The sea front is also very close as are many coffee and eating places. There are car parks around including a multi-storey one above M&S which is accessed from the sea front. Highly recommend this workshop - and her others! I have also found the same exceptional quality and enjoyment from the felting, macramé bracelets, eco soy candle-making. I also want to do her others. The quality of tuition and excellent written instructions mean I feel confident to have a go at them myself afterwards."

Anon reviewed: Wet felted flowers

"Fabulous time had by my friend and myself when we attended one of Wendy's wet felt flower making classes. A delightful craft shop selling everything you can possibly need for handicrafts, with a charming host to teach by demonstration how to make felt flowers. Refreshments were available throughout our time there. Everyone came away with 2 beautiful felt flowers and full of inspiration to make more. Loved it!"
