Fabulous class. The venue is amazing and our facilitators and teachers were kind and helpful and brilliant. The COVID plan was great. I LOVED making my bag, it was therapeutic and fun and I love the end result too. I highly recommend this excellent course. Great day out for my sisters and my Mum. LOVED it!

I enjoyed the macrame class very much. The instructor was very hands-on, and very positive and encouraging. The macrame project was not complicated or difficult - just takes a bit of practice to get it right. The session lasted about 3½ hours. I found the physical effort a bit challenging towards the end.....my arms and my back reminded me that I'm 64 years old. I would highly recommend this Class. And I have an attractive and useful bag to show for my efforts.
