I spent a very enjoyable and rewarding 2 hours at this workshop. All the materials we needed were provided and Laurie was a very clear and patient teacher, guiding us through each design so that we were successful even at our first attempts. The designs she chose for us were simple enough so that we were all able to complete them in this one session, even though we were all new to this craft. As we started to go at different speeds Laurie was able to guide us all individually. I thoroughly recommend this class and teacher.

This was a fabulous experience. Creating a handmade arty card with needle and thread was so joyous and therapeutic. The highlight for me was having my 9 year old son participate lasting almost 2 hours (now that is success being kids these days are glued to devices). The reward of completing a beautiful personal card to give or for keepsake was delightful. I can honestly say this session made me remember the importance of reviving those old arts and crafts. I will definitely recommend for adults and children. Whether it’s birthday parties, or looking out for family sessions. A real treat.

The class was fantastic, I made two cards in two hours. The instructions were clear, the teacher was friendly and patient. Making cards with string is a fabulous idea and this brought back childhood memories of me making items with my mum. Also the price was very reasonable.

Attended a second workshop today and loved it even more! It’s a great way to relax, express your creativity and meet like minded people. Laurie is a great teacher. The whole environment is friendly and you get to take your beautiful creations home! Will definitely attend more in future to learn new patterns :)

Laurie is a wonderful teacher - she’s calm, welcoming and knowledgable and she made the session engaging and enjoyable. The session was great and I can’t wait to go along to another - it’s really relaxing and lovely to learn something new and it was so much fun to spend a couple of ideas just enjoying doing something crafty in a lovely group and with a lovely teacher. Thank you so much Laurie!
