"Good preparatory instructions and notes. Friendly instruction. Entrance to location needs to be identified by sign on road."

Tuffett responded:

" Thank you for your review Paul. You did a great job with your indoor planter and picked up the new skills very well. Good point about the signage and I will make sure this is in place for future workshops. Kind regards, Sue"

"This one day course was excellent for a beginner. We were given basic information around techniques such as how to use a saw, sandpaper and power drill and screwdriver. There was a project to complete using these skills which took most of the day. Advice and help were on hand not only from the organiser, Sue, but also from 2 previous attendees who were now very proficient themselves. All materials were supplied and it was value for money in a lovely setting deep in the countryside. I would recommend it for anyone at any age. Sue is an excellent and patient teacher and has inspired me to try small projects of my own."

Tuffett responded:

" Thank you Naomi. Glad you enjoyed the day and well done for making a lovely planter, with a mitred top!! Advanced stuff!!"

Kate reviewed: One day upholstery workshops to make a footstool or headboard

"I spent a lovely and very productive day making a footstool at Tuffett. The tuition was excellent and Sue divided her time between the four of us equally. Initially we were introduced to the tools and basic techniques and then set to on our own footstools. Sue was very patient and supportive and we were all proud of what we had produced. The setting is fabulous and we were fortunate to be able to sit outside for our breaks enjoying the views, good conversation and entertainment provided by the dogs and ducks. I would thoroughly recommend this course."

Tuffett responded:

" Thanks Kate. It was lovely to have you here and you made a great job of your footstool."

"Having never tried upholstery before, thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Sue is a fabulous teacher with a vast amount of experience. I made a footstool which has been complimented on numerous times. I am now looking at attending another course and bringing along a couple of friends. Every step is explained and demonstrated. A very worthwhile course."

" Thank you so much for your lovely review Lesley. It was a pleasure to have you on the workshop and I look forward to you coming again on 30th March with your two friends. We shall have another fun day!"
