Stag and Bow was set up in 2010 by founders Pascale and Cyrus, as a celebration of sharing skills, stories, knowledge, and all things handmade. As well as running a stunning shop in Forrest Hill, Stag and Bow also provide informative, fun and inspiring craft and textile workshops.

Cyrus is a specialist woodworker and designer with great experience in a variety of design disciplines, with strong focus on the "poetic" side of materials and how people can relate to them. Similarly, Pascale is in her element when she is making, fully immersing herself in the textile world.

Through these workshops, Pascale and Cyrus are able to pass on their collected wealth of experience of the textile trade. Their meticulous choice of materials and infectious attention to detail is passed on to the students as they seek to further their own craft!

We really enjoyed this class. Adamina and Adrian demonstrated the techniques really clearly and were always on hand to correct errors or answer questions, meaning that everyone made quick progress and produced something they were proud of. I’ve been to classes where the teacher spends half the time talking about themselves and boasting about their expertise, but Adamina and Adrian didn’t talk about themselves at all and didn’t need to. Their work (as displayed on a table in the room) spoke for itself and all they cared about was helping people get the best result they could in the time available. No egos or marketing, just two expert craftsmen/women with a knack for teaching.

The venue for the workshop is in the cellar. It was freezing. One of the ladies in the shop apologised that she had not put the heating on until the workshop started. I had to leave after 45 minutes as my hands were too cold. I had a thick sweatshirt on and two other layers. The tube was warmer than the room. I was the only person to attend. The teaching aspect was over in fifteen minutes with the teacher showing things she had found on the internet. The selection of beads was very poor. Mostly cheap beads and only brown swarski ones (expensive). I was given one ball of £5.99 wool. The patterns were extremely old fashioned. Just typed on A4 paper and some old graph paper. Really strange as the tutor has written a book so I e pelted it to be much more professional. The venue may be good on a very hot day. The shop above looked as though it had interesting things but I was too cold to stay and look!

It was wonderful! Lindy our teacher was great, she gave us a bit of an insight into how she began crocheting and what kinds of crochet she is involved in which was great. Lindy made sure each and everyone of us were on the right track and gave some speedy learners new tasks to keep them from getting bored. I would highly reccommend this to anyone who hasn't a clue about crochet, not only is the teacher great the location is great- Stag and Bow is a beautiful haberdashery so you are inspired the moment you walk in the door!
