"This is everything a craft course should be. So enjoyable. Holly is so talented and explains everything so well. You dive straight into creating and I loved the felting and free motion embroidery. There is always help on hand and a lovely group of ladies to chat with whilst creating. Highly recommend."

"Thankyou Holly.. This was a lovely few hours working on a process I was eager to learn. I will definitely pursue this craft further. The class was calm and structured and Holly was a great tutor who was willing to share all her knowledge and experience so we achieved a successful piece of fabric at the end. I would highly recommend you take this course with Holly. "

Hayley reviewed: Lino Printing onto Fabric YORK

"I enjoyed learning about linocut printing onto fabric. The session was well structured with enough time for each part of the process and plenty of 1-1 help if needed. If I was doing it again I’d give more thought to potential designs I wanted to use beforehand- something clear and not too fiddly to cut! "

"The course was great! Holly delivered the instructions clearly and her presenting style was really engaging. We learned lots about different clay-modelling techniques but there were also opportunities for children to be creative and do their own thing. We'll definitely sign up to another course soon."
