Emily and Liz are wonderful teachers. I came to the course a complete novice and they created a space where I could learn to use new tools, challenge myself to have a go. I made two great rings, had three peaceful hours all to myself to work and I loved every minute of it. Thank you so much, we all need some space to learn new skills and make things with our hands.

A wonderful course to learn some of the techniques of creating you own pieces of art. Fantastic teacher who led us through the safety and techniques clearly and let us all create very individual pieces. I will definitely be back to further develop my skills.
