Even though the journey down to Thames Ditton was very long, the time spent making the Highland Cow was brilliant. We were welcomed with a warm cuppa and biscuits and a fantastic use for recycling plastic bottles. Mike, the mo cow, as it's been named by my great nephew, looks great in my living room. Thank you for such a great welcome and for teaching me something new. Bring these workshops up to Yorkshire.

We had a great time creating our cows
Vicky - 24 March 2024
We were pretty sceptical that we would make anything that looked good but we were soooo happy with the cows we made. They now have pride of place in our lounge. The four hours absolutely flew by. A really relaxing experience and we had all the help and support we needed. Would highly recommend.
Anna-Maria Johnson - 9 February 2024
Good fun workshop, making a highland cow. There were 8 of us in the session and the tutor demonstrated the process a step at a time, with us then working on our cows. Such a variety produced but all looked great. The time went quickly and the tutor kept things moving well in the 4 hours. Powertex is a bit messy but aprons were provided and it washed off our hands fine. Good parking behind the Thames Ditton venue.
Susan Taylor - 7 September 2023
We received a voucher to make a highland cow which we redeemed on Tuesday 5th September. The experience was good fun and surprisingly our end results were ok - our friends were very impressed!

Absolutely brilliant workshop! Extremely clear step by step instructions and the most beautiful Highland cow with her own personality to take home. She has been much admired! Very well worth it!

Brilliant day making a highland cow sculpture. Great tutor and relaxed environment allowing us to lose ourselves in powertex! Thank you very much.
Jackie Barley - 18 October 2022
A great class. Learnt all about Powertex and how it's used to sculpture anything using waste products. Rachel was very helpful in my off track project of changing a cow to an alpaca!! Thank you

My friend and I absolutely loved making these highland cows. They looked fantastic when finished. Rachel was a fabulous teacher - really lovely. The four hours flew by as we laughed, talked and created. A great place to learn too. Looking forward to returning for another adventure in creating.
Belinda Matheson-Mclaughlin - 1 June 2022
What a fabulous class totally loved it. Creative and messy but a pleasure to create such a unique and quirky sculpture. Lovely to learn a totally new technique. Only problem is I now want to make a whole herd of highland cows…..

Great fun, really enjoyable workshop. Love my highland cow.
Abbey Archer - 28 January 2022
I love attending the Papercraft sessions on a Monday afternoon and on Thursday I attended the Powertex Highland Cow session. I had absolutely no idea what to expect and at one point felt that I might not complete it in time. I did! Rachel is so enthusiastic and patient and just a brilliant tutor. I cannot recommend her sessions highly enough. I’m so happy with my finished cow and really impressed that I learnt so many new techniques. I definitely want to go back and make a gnome. Thank you so much Rachel!
Ruth Heaffey - 19 December 2021
