With this workshop - it’s highly likely you walk away with so much more than a handmade object, some new or improved skills and a belly full of laughter. Whilst it was a wonderful crafternoon, it was also a very good opportunity to connect with others, being in the moment and feeling welcome and accepted. Stimulating and positive conversation was exchanged - Adrienne made everybody feel at ease, she intuitively assisted her students when and where needed and offered extension for those who excelled. A perfect antidote - a fantastic feel good moment. Hands down 5 stars from me.
