What a great informative first night! Fantastic instructors with a wealth of knowledge. My plan was to go and make one item but as soon as I walked into the place my imagination was running wild. Needless to say I’m hooked.

Addicted to these classes! There's no limit to how much you can learn, make or play. I was expecting these classes to be structured going through a basic list of how to make a basic item. As someone who has done numerous short courses I always felt like I came out learning very little, maybe an extra one or two little things but definitely not worth the money or time spent on them. With these classes you can start to develop your skills based on prior knowledge or learn from scratch. Everyone is at different skill levels so it really becomes a class that feels like its tailored to you. The teachers are lovely and welcome as many questions as you'd like. They'll help guide you with your items ( you can choose to make whatever you like, as many as you like ) show you techniques so you come out with a well made piece. Love!
