We had a great time in this workshop. We recommend bringing a thicker material (E.g upholstery) for durability. Highly recommended.

Really enjoyed the finished product, but the instructor wasn't very helpful and seemed to be more interested in being on her phone or just chatting to people, rather than actually teaching. Early into the class, I asked her what the next step was, after completing the one she had previously shown me. She was on her phone at this point and replied "You have the instructions, and a friend" in a rather abrupt manner. We were quite taken aback. So my friend and I tried to do the next few steps using the, somewhat unclear, instructions. She then came over later and told us what we were doing was wrong. I asked her why, because we were doing what the instructions said. She replied something along the lines of the instructions being old, and therefore wrong... Naturally, I don't think she was a very good instructor, and therefore not really the experience I thought I would get for the price...
