Natural Christmas

Really fun session, easy to follow instructions, well knowledged and helpful teacher. Cannot believe I made a natural wreath, it's so beautiful. Very well organized, beautiful site. Soup was delicious, wouldn't mind the recipe.

Without talent!

Thoroughly enjoyed our day, confirmed myself completely without any creativity but laughed a lot and the soup and bread was delicious, well organised.

Christmas Decorations

Had a great time. Everything was provided including Gluten Free mince pies. Plenty of time and comprehensive instructions to create some really lovely lasting and unique decorations. Well recommended and will look into other courses at other times of the year now I have so enjoyed this.
