MARILYN HOLE reviewed: Silver Jewellery Workshop

"As a complete beginner to using the tools etc I found the class really interesting, I'd definitely do another. I would have loved to have seen more of Jenny's work, maybe an introduction right at the beginning with a coffee and examples of her work to see what we can aspire to! Thanks, Marilyn"

"I really enjoyed myself and I'm so happy my mum brought me along! You can get through a lot, and it's very do-able at home. Thank you for teaching us and answering questions. Your store/workshop space is amazing also."

"This class was really good value, it is amazing what you can learn in a couple of hours. Wendy was a friendly teacher that explained things well as she talked us through making a deckle ( frame to make paper in) and did a demonstration of what we were going to do to make our paper. It was great fun deciding what to include in each sheet and exciting to see how each piece came out. Wendy was on hand to remind us of the steps and we were given a handout detailing the process as well as our deckles to take home. We were a small group of 4, it was nice meeting the others taking part. Wendy also packaged up our still damp creations ( I made 3 pieces others made 4/5) so that we could take them home to let them dry out properly. I loved what I made and will be turning my paper into gift tags. I will be making more at home but would definitely like to visit The Little Craftery to do some more craft courses with Wendy. Thank you Wendy!"

Debi Fletcher reviewed: Chainmaille - Helmweave Bracelet

"This was my first ever class on jewellery making & I absolutely loved it! Wendy was very welcoming & her teaching way is very relaxed & encouraging. With the class taking place in her studio you gain such inspiration for lots of other helmweave items she has on show. I look forward to attending other classes at The Little Craftery to broaden my knowledge on chainmail technics under the expert tutelage of Wendy. Absolutely fabulous! 10/10 *****"

"I attended a paper making workshop with Wendy. She's a great teacher, everything was ready for us and we followed the process step by step with Wendy's encouragement. We enjoyed tea and refreshments whilst discovering the techniques of paper making. We each went home with a mould and deckle and the skills to make paper at home. Can't wait to get started. Highly recommended."

"I attended the felt bead class today. Excellent value for money. I learnt a completely new skill and took home a beautiful necklace, very impressive. Wendy's tuition is first rate and her Craftery is definitely an inspiring place to learn new crafts and buy materials."

"I had a lovely afternoon learning how to make a chainmaille half Persian 4 in 1 bracelet. Wendy was brilliant and even though I hadn’t done this before, I was soon busily making a bracelet with Wendy’s guidance. I was delighted with the finished result and can highly recommend Wendy and The Little Craftery. Thank you for a lovely afternoon!"

Emma Patrick reviewed: Silver Jewellery Workshop

"I was amazed how professional looking my earrings turned out. I thought the course was good value, after all we were there for nearly five hours and came away with silver earrings. I’d like to do it again to make some more. Definitely cheaper than buying the equipment and sheets of silver."

Sue reviewed: Papermaking - Handmade Recycled Paper

"I loved this course! In the space of 2 hours I learnt enough to go home with 4 sheets of my own paper and the inspiration to start shredding and pulping more junk mail at home for future projects. I've already ordered a creative paper making book and lino roller so watch this space!"

Clare Buckland reviewed: Papermaking - Handmade Recycled Paper

"I thought this was an excellent course and well run. Wendy is engaging and informative without sounding 'preachy' and obviously has a love for her chosen profession. The verbal instructions were clear and well thought out and the addition of a printed instruction worksheet following the course was an added bonus. The fact that all the materials used can be supplied in your average home without the expense of having to buy specialist tools to carry on (and that we could take the mould home with us ) was very welcome. This is my second course at The Little Craftery and would not hesitate to book again and recommend others do likewise."
