A great course for beginners or experienced. Hannah is very informative & delivered the workshop in a very relaxed way, making everyone feel at ease. I would highly recommend this workshop.
I really enjoyed the workshop. Hannah was so informative and patient and gave lots of great advice about getting the best results with the tape design. The time flew by.
I had a lovely time at my Box Workshop. I enjoyed learning about how to paint geometric shapes in furniture, I will definitely be applying the techniques to other pieces I have at home. Hannah was friendly, informative and helpful. The location of the workshop was inspiring. Recommend!
Oh we had such a fabulous morning learning furniture painting techniques and making a gorgeous box in the process.
Hannah is a really great teacher, strikes the perfect balance of teaching and letting you give it a go. Loved all the little packages of everything we needed - as well as a superior choice of snacks!Definitely will be back for more!
My second workshop with Hannah and this was just as enjoyable as the first. The box masterclass was fun and allowed us to focus on more challenging techniques. Hannah was her usual patient and helpful self!
Response from Tread Softly:Thanks Cliff! Thanks for coming back and I'm thrilled that you found doing this second workshop useful. Looking forward to seeing your masking tape designs now! Thanks so much for leaving a review :)
I had a great day, with Hannah, learning to upcycle a small table. From the very beginning Hannah was very welcoming and ensured that everyone in our small group was comfortable. We learned how to prepare our piece of furniture for upcycling, then how to apply paint or wax and how to produce a range of designs and finishes.
All the materials we needed were provided and we also got advice on the best materials and equipment to buy for any projects we intended to complete at home.
I would certainly recommend this course and Hannah as a tutor.
Response from Tread Softly:Hi Anne, I'm so pleased that you enjoyed the workshop :) thank you so much for coming and for that lovely review. It was fab meeting you and I loved your masking tape design! Hope you enjoy doing your other side tables now :)
I really enjoyed the box decorating workshop. Great tips and advice from Hannah and a fun way to spend the morning. I would definitely be interested in taking part in other future workshops.
Response from Tread Softly:Hi Helen, thanks so much! I loved your box design and can't wait to see your beautiful jewellery displayed in it. Thanks again for coming and it would be wonderful to see you at a future course :)
Really enjoyable and well-run class. The workshop was well equipped, nicely paced, good atmosphere, with lots of support and advice when wanted. Very pleased with our creations. Thank you!
Response from Tread Softly:Aw thanks Alice! It was fab meeting you. I'm glad you enjoyed the course. Your box design was excellent. Thanks again for coming!
Another great day spent learning new painting techniques. Hannah is such a helpful and friendly person. I would recommend this course. Very relaxed atmosphere. Endless cups of tea and coffee with snacks.
Response from Tread Softly:Aw thanks so much for coming back to do this workshop with me Jane. You've definitely got a knack for it - your design was fantastic! Can't wait to see you putting your new skills onto furniture now too :)
It was a brilliant day, with an extensive range of paint colours, equipment, tea and snacks in this wonderful bright and airy workspace.
The techniques demonstrated were excellent enabling us to each paint and finish a beautiful box in our own choice of colour and design.
Hannah, of course was helpful, informative and friendly throughout the class and I would definitely book onto another class. Actually my friend is so impressed with our results she wants me to take her along as well next time.
So a big thumbs up and thank you 👍🏼😊
Response from Tread Softly:Hi Virginia, what a wonderful review. Thank you so much! I'm so pleased you finally made it to one of my courses, it was a pleasure to finally meet you. I loved how creative you were with your masking tape design. It would be fantastic to have you back again :) x
Hannah was very friendly and welcoming on arrival at the workshop. She offered clear methods, guidance and support in all aspects of achieving a beautiful finish and design on our boxes. We were given an opportunity to choose from an array of colours, attempt Hannah's designs or try out our own. We were a group of seven and our finished boxes all differed but not in the overall standard and beauty.
It was a great introduction to the art of upcycling furniture and a great start for a beginner. The boxes make beautiful gifts but the actual workshop would too. Looking forward to learning more and increasing my skills through Hannah and her workshops.
Response from Tread Softly:What a wonderful review. Thanks so much Jacqui! I'm really pleased to hear that you got so much out of the day. I was very impressed with your masking tape design, which you made your own. It looked fantastic the way it came onto the front of the box. And now you have the perfect memory box :)
I absolutely loved this workshop. As a beginner I learned so much from Hannah about prep and painting techniques and love my finished box. Hannah also kept the tea and coffee flowing which was much appreciated as well as supporting us all as we worked on our boxes! I definitely want to sign up for the full furniture workshop now! A great introduction from a super welcoming and friendly teacher. Thanks Hannah :)
Response from Tread Softly:Thanks so much for coming on the course Kate! I'm so pleased you enjoyed it. Your box was fantastic and I love the colours that you chose. You definitely had a lot of patience to persevere with a more complex design. It'll be fab to have you along to the full day course too! :)
I really enjoyed the Christmas box workshop. When I saw Hannahs's design ideas I thought as a complete novice I would never be able to accomplish anything similar but with Hannah's expert guidance I produced a lovely keepsake box which I'm gifting to my great-granddaughter. Thank you Hannah for a wonderful day, fantastic atmosphere and support.
Response from Tread Softly:Thanks Cab! I'm glad you enjoyed the day. I thought your box was excellent and you did a fantastic job. It looked very professional. I hope that your great-granddaughter loves it, I'm sure that she will :) Thanks so much to you and Kay for coming!
I had a brilliant crafting morning/afternoon with Hannah! Even though I was way out of my comfort zone, Hannah was so informative and supportive and gave lots of creative ideas and tips!
I loved all the little bits that Hannah had thought to provide and the constant flow of tea was certainly welcomed!
I can’t wait to attend another, thanks Hannah!
Response from Tread Softly:Thanks Rhean :) it was such a lovely session, thanks so much for coming. I loved your choice of colours and triangle design - it looked great! Definitely didn't seem like you were out of your comfort zone. I hope you've found a great use for your box.
A wonderful way to craft away an afternoon! Hannah was really informative and friendly throughout the workshop, supplying us with top tips and quality paint supplies! Highly recommend this workshop with the very talented Hannah! Im no eager to attend another!
Response from Tread Softly:Thanks Sarah! It was lovely having you and Rhean along to the course. I loved that you came up with your own design and I'm definitely going to steal that colour combination - it looked ace! Thanks for coming :)
Thoroughly enjoyed this course. Hannah was very attentive and explained everything clearly. Had a lovely day, painted my piece of furniture, which turned out great. My family were very impressed. Met some lovely people. Can’t wait to book another course soon.
Response from Tread Softly:Hi Jane! So pleased that you enjoyed the day. It really was a fantastic group. I loved your commode - so unusual!! Your design was excellent and lovely choice of colours. Glad your family approved. I think we must have similar tastes. Thanks so much for coming along :)
I had a great time learning how to make my table look like new. I felt at ease from the start and with it being a small class Hannah is always there to help and advise. Great products for us to use and everything explained well. I definitely recommend doing this course. Really enjoyed it. 🙂
Response from Tread Softly:Hi Denise, Thank you so much for coming and for leaving such a lovely review. It was great having you on the course. I thought you did an excellent job of your side table and I bet your telephone looks perfect on it :) Thanks again for coming!
I really enjoyed my day learning how to upcycle furniture with Hannah. She took us through the whole process from start to finish and it was ideal for a complete beginner like me. The pace was excellent and the supporting materials meant that we didn't have to try and remember everything. Hannah was a very patient and supportive tutor and I would thoroughly recommend the day.
Response from Tread Softly:Thanks Cliff! I'm so pleased that you enjoyed the course. It was a really fun day and I loved how ambitious you were with your design. I can't believe that you are a beginner! Amazing! Thanks so much for coming on the course, it was a pleasure to meet you :)
Hannah is a lovely teacher and goes at a comfortable pace. I really enjoyed the day and to have a finished up cycled piece of furniture at the end, is fantastic. The course was full of tips and Hannah answered any questions. It was great to try a different type of furniture paint too.
I would highly recommend Hannah’s work shop for anyone who is interested in up cycling, you won’t be disappointed. She is a lovely person and the group was small so meant that Hannah could spend time with each person.
The venue is easy to find and there’s a vintage shop and cafe within the old building.
Thank you Hannah for an enjoyable day.
Response from Tread Softly:Hi Jayne,
I thoroughly enjoyed this course and felt it was very beneficial and well worth the money. Hannah is an inspirational course leader and the relaxed day, working witha small group of others means you learn not only about your own project but also those of others. I have been upcycling for about a year. I now feel much more confident and have a set of new skills.
Response from Tread Softly:What a lovely review, thanks Elaine! and thanks so much for coming such a long way to learn with me. I think I was actually inspired by you! Some fab ideas. I can't wait to see your future projects :)
