Trudi reviewed: Fortnightly Bobbin Lace Making - Daytime Mixed Lace Classes (Barnham - West Sussex)

"I am a beginner and have just done one session of this course which I thoroughly enjoyed. The course leader was friendly, helpful and very patient with plenty of individual time for each of the course participants. All of the necessary equipment was available on loan or to purchase. Despite it being my first session I managed to make a small piece of lace. I’m very much looking forward to the next session."

Tina Pedrick - Bobbin Lace Teacher & Maker. responded:

" Hi Trudi Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. I am looking forward to seeing you at the next session, and taking through you through some more techniques. I hope lace making will be the craft that keeps the little grey cells active! Let's hope you enjoy the next session as much as th first. See you in October. Regards Tina"

"Tina and her husband are the kindest and most generous people we have met lately. Tina adjusted her instruction to match varying levels of aptitude in the class masterfully. The garden was magnificent and an idyllic setting for crafting. I would highly recommend this course for men and women."

Tina Pedrick - Bobbin Lace Teacher & Maker. responded:

" Hello James We hope you have recovered, and you both had a safe journey home. It was a pleasure to meet you both. I hope the lace gift went down well. Please get in touch if you have any problems with the lace making including pictures e I will try and help. We have had yet another very hot few days, although had a spot of rain last night. So you can imagine the gardens are beginning to suffer. Enjoy your retirement! Take care Regards Tina and Stephen"

Jude reviewed: Two Day Beginners & Beyond - Bobbin Lace Making Workshops (Surrey).

"Tina is a true traditionalist, keen to share her knowledge of lacemaking techniques. I attended a two-day beginners course, covering all the necessary preparations, threading, pricking, spangling and the first two basic stitches. Then Tina went on to explain further stitches, giving different people different advice and tasks to suit their confidence. Tina showed examples of different types of lacemaking and covered information on different types of bobbins, different types of threads etc. I really enjoyed her course, and came away armed with the knowledge to start."

Tina Pedrick - Bobbin Lace Teacher & Maker. responded:

" Hi Jude. It's comforting to know that you took on board all the information that I imparted over the two day workshop. I appreciated seeing your antique bobbins and hope that you use them to keep the stitches going! Stephen and I also enjoyed seeing and hearing your excitement when you achieved tasks and the techniques set! We hope to see you in the future to carry on your journey into lace making."

Brenda Payne reviewed: Three Day Bobbin Lace Making - Mixed Workshops (Surrey).

"Last week end, 18/19 September 2021, I joined Tina's workshop. I was made most welcome and felt cared for. My knowledge was zero! I have come away from this weekend with a confidence I did not expect, knowing I can phone Tina if I am 'stuck' and she will talk me through it. The weekend was relaxed and informal. Tina was always my shoulder when I seem to get lost. I hope to join another course if not this year, definitely next year. Thank you Tina and Steven for making my experience so relaxed and happy."

Pennie Lunn reviewed: Two Day Beginners & Beyond - Bobbin Lace Making Workshops (Surrey).

"I've just had the most fabulous craft weekend, learning the very basics of lacemaking under the careful supervision of the incredibly knowledgeable Tina, with technical input and plenty of cups of tea from her husband Stephen. There was so much to learn and take in, but Tina broke everything down into manageable chunks and made sure I understood each stage before moving on. I feel I have tried and understood enough in two days to have a good go at these techniques myself at home, knowing that I can book further sessions with Tina as my confidence, understanding and skill levels grow. I would recommend this course to anyone who is curious about making lace - the sense of achievement is huge. I'm hooked!"

Tina Pedrick - Bobbin Lace Teacher & Maker. responded:

" Hello Penni Thank you for taking the time to place a review on the website, on the Beginners workshop you have just attended. It was a great pleasure to meet and teach a student with so much enthusiasm for Bobbin lace. I am really looking forward to seeing your samples you make in order to practise the techniques we covered over the weekend. Best wishes Tina."

Nicole Corbin reviewed: Idrija Lace: jewellery / accessories / traditional

"I attended this course last week and it was excellent. Tina was very patient and taught me enough techniques so I can complete the piece of lace that I was making by myself. At one point where I was totally stuck, Tina patiently undid my lace to a point where I could continue. I throughly recommend this course."

Tina Pedrick - Bobbin Lace Teacher & Maker. responded:

" Hello Nicole Well what praise indeed! Pleased to hear that you have learnt enough and feel confident to finish the bangle. I would love to see the completed piece, do send a picture. Please do get in touch if you have any problems. I hope to see you again in the future. Regards Tina"

I had a really great day and will definitely attend more workshops."

Nicole Corbin reviewed: Three Day Bobbin Lace Making - Mixed Workshops (Surrey).

"I attended the Honiton lace making course earlier this week. I had never made Honiton lace before and was very pleased to be able to complete the piece in the two days. Tina was very patient and even lent me the bobbins and a pillow so that I could use the correct equipment. Without her help I would never have been able to finish."

" Hello Nicole I am very pleased that you enjoyed the course, and that the pattern proved the correct one for a student to complete in two days. I look forward to seeing the finished piece, as well as hoping you may wish to try the next pattern at the Honiton workshop planned for later in the year.
