Carol Grant reviewed: Willow Sculpture (1 day) in the Peak District

"The course was great - the tutor was very helpful and the lunch was excellent (including home made cake). I thoroughly enjoyed the day - there were 7 of us in total which was a nice number and allowed Caroline to give us all the attention we needed to make great sculptures - would be interested in doing a 2 day course to try something a little more complicated! "

Zantium Studios Ltd responded:

"Thankyou so much Carol, You were a lovely group and what a great flock of hens (+ duck!) created. As Caroline mentioned, we offer a 2-day workshop in 'Willow Animal Sculpture' where you could produce a larger (4 legged) piece - or a pair of birds. Hope to welcome you back sometime. "

Maureen Grant reviewed: Modern Calligraphy (1 day) in the Peak District

"My daughter Joanna and I had a wonderful day on our modern calligraphy course. Allie, our tutor, was excellent - she explained everything simply and it was easy to understand. We learned so much and are eager to put it into practice. Our hosts were a delight. Beautiful surroundings and lovely home cooked lunch and delicious cake in the afternoon. Can’t wait to arrange another course. "

Yvonne Abdul reviewed: Craft Bookbinding (1 day) in the Peak District

"I can highly recommend this one day course for beginners or anyone with a little experience of book binding. The day proceeded at a reasonable pace and I never felt rushed. There was plenty of choice when it came to materials for our books and Holly, our tutor was very calm and patient with everyone. We didn’t wait for anything when it came to refreshment breaks and the weather was just about good enough for us to sit outside and enjoy the wonderful surroundings and views. I really enjoyed the day and came home with a book that I was very happy with. I hope that I can return one day to experience another course like this. Thank you, Holly and Peter, who was a great host and provider of lunch and snacks."

"This is a fantastic introductory course to book binding. The tutor, Holly, explained and demonstrated everything thoroughly. The course was unrushed allowing everyone to progress at a steady pace. I'm happy with what I learned and feel confident in using and building upon the skills taught. The hospitality was also excellent, with plenty of hot drinks and snacks provided through the day, with a very nice lunch and homemade cake in the afternoon. Overall, thoroughly recommended!"

Fatima Robinson reviewed: Craft Bookbinding (1 day) in the Peak District

"The 1 day bookbinding course is fantastic! Our instructor Holly used her vast experience in bookbinding and restoration to create an informative and very well paced course. Thanks to Holly's clear instructions and encouragement, I went home with a hardcover note book to be proud of. As if the course itself wasn't enough, to do it at Zantium Studios was a joy. The views are stunning and Allison is a wonderful, warm and friendly host. Allison made sure we had everything we needed, from a wide selection of refreshments (available throughout the day), delicious handmade lunches and afternoon cakes. I'd definitely recommend this course, and will be looking to attend another course at Zantium in the future. Thank you for an amazing day. "
