Craft bookbinding (1 day) in the Peak District

In-person course
- - #27222

I really enjoyed our day in this creative haven near Wirksworth. The studio is well lit with plenty of natural light and the size of the course was a nice surprise, [small]. We soon became engrossed under Holly's expert tuition and I was very impressed by our output. Holly provided a good range of paper for our covers. The lunch and cake was of a lovely home baked standard. I so enjoyed my day.

I had a wonderful time making a willow obelisk then dragonflies and willow wind spinners. Eddie was brilliant as a tutor - really helpful, patient and clear and also very encouraging! The setting was lovely and we were all made to feel very welcome and the food provided was delicious, especially the homemade brownies! Thank you for such a memorable day - I loved it!

Very enjoyable course - lovely setting, great facilities/food, very friendly and helpful hosts/teachers and for a beginner I achieved far more than I expected with an ambitious mosaic. The display from the resident peacock on the first morning was an unexpected bonus!

Needle felted hares / bunnies (1 day) in the Peak District

In-person course
- - #21043

An excellent day in the beautiful rural heart of Derbyshire. The workshop was great fun and excellently run by Von Allen. I was really proud of my cute Hare (Harriet) even though I was a complete beginner. The whole day felt like being a welcome house guest, with a homemade lunch of soup, bread rolls, fruits, cheeses etc. Afternoon tea was, again, homemade. This time mouthwatering chocolate and almond cake. I cannot recommend the event and Zantium Studios highly enough.

Painted stained glass (2 days) in the Peak District

In-person course
- - #18731

Homely welcome coupled with excellent tuition - I recently attended the painted stained glass weekend course. Alison and Pete make you very welcome in their home with tea, coffee, delicious home cooked lunch and cake in the afternoon. The course is held in their home with a purpose built studio for the class. The tuition by Jane Littlefield on this course was excellent. Covered all the basics and provided all the support that was needed for all delegates. Thoroughly recommended.

Response from Zantium Studios Ltd:

Dear Linda,
Thankyou so much for your warm words. So glad you enjoyed the course and felt at home here. I will pass on your happy feedback to the lovely Jane Littlefield.

My second stained glass course at Zantium Studios with Lili, this time learning about leaded glass. The course was fabulous; Lili is fantastic, so patient and encouraging. I would highly recommend any of her courses. Zantium Studio's light and airy craft studio is a perfect place to learn a craft. Alison is lovely and welcoming, and really cares about what you've achieved on the course. And of course the food and cake is delicious!
