Fabulous day making Jewellery
Oct 2019
Wow what a fabulous day learning a new skill and enjoying a lovely lunch cooked by our hostess Cathy.
This really was a fun packed day with good company and as much or as little help and advice as you needed.
There was an abundance of beads and findings to choose from and some samples of what you could achieve.
We have booked to go back to do another session and learn yet more skills.

Thank you Cathy

Amazing morning making jewellery
May 2019 • Family
My daughter and I really enjoyed learning how to make jewellery under the expert guidance of Cathy. We were amazed by the lovely relaxed atmosphere and how quickly the morning went whilst we made our pieces. Looking forward to booking a full day soon. Thank you Cathy for making our first experience of making jewellery so special.

Relaxed but productive activity.
Mar 2019 • Solo
After being greeted with tea and cake I spent a lovely couple of hours making a necklace and earrings. Cathy was lovely and helpful. Everything we needed was laid out and explained. I've never seen so many beads in my life so it took me a while to decide what to make. I definitely recommend this. the setting is beautiful too.

Superb jewellery making day!!
Apr 2019 • Friends
My friends and I spend a wonderful day with Cathy making all manner of jewellery items in her beautiful home. It was a very relaxing day and Cathy provided all the expert tuition for us complete beginners. I thoroughly recommend staying all day not just because there is so much more time to enjoy jewellery making but Cathy really is a marvellous host and the home cooked two course lunch was absolutely delicious.

Cathy has perfectly pitched the day and puts you at ease from the start as she welcomes you with tea and cake before beginning the day's creations!

We have already booked to return!

Thank you so much Cathy.

Mother’s Day treat
Mar 2019 • Friends
Very warm welcome as we arrived to her (amazingly beautiful!) house. We were sat in the front room and had some lovely tea and cake whilst waiting for the rest of the days guests to arrive. When we were all caked out, Cathy took us through to the workshop to get started. We were all stunned by the amount of variety and amount of beads available (the picture does NOT do it justice!) Cathy showed us what to do and some techniques and sent us of into the wild! We would highly recommend spending the whole day- including a yummy home made lunch and a cheeky glass of wine 😏. Once you get the hang of it and complete your first piece you'll want to carry on forever, we're already planning our next visit 😁
Thank you for a wonderfully fun and creative day, Cathy. Looking forward to seeing you again soon!

Good fun with a bonus
Aug 2018
Being an Austrian, the workshop gave me an opportunity to combine my desire to know more about jewellery making with meeting native people from England. It turned out to be an excellent idea,more than worth the money it cost me. The welcome Cathy gave us could not have been more friendly and instructive. To begin with, we got tea, coffee and cake, and started the workshop with picking our favourite beads from a huge choice - most of them included in the price. Cathy showed us how to make them into our individual little treasures.The morning ended for me with a pretty new necklace and matching earrings - and a very tasteful lunchand a friendly chat with Cathy and another lady.

Fantastic Day!
Feb 2019 • Friends
Myself and a girlfriend treated ourselves to a full day jewellery making at Cathy's in February 2019. We had been to something similar before so had a basic understanding of the techniques. You get a warm welcome in an amazing house and the day gets started with tea and cake which is one of lifes luxuries in my book. We were takien through to Cathy's workshop in the kitchen which had an amazing selection of beeds and wirework. We were shown different ways of using the materials and then left to choose our own designs. We stopped for a fabulous lunch all homemade of course. The day flew by and i would give Cathy 10 stars for this wonderful day. I recommend going for a whole day as once you get started you really won't want to come away. We've already booked another workshop and can't wait to get started again..........I cannot recommend this day highly enough.

Excellent morning learning new skills and eating delicious cake
Oct 2018 • Friends
Myself, 2 friends and 2 babies had a brilliant morning with Cathy making a number of beaded items.
Cathy was so warm, welcoming and friendly as soon as we arrived. She was easy to talk to and really helped us novices understand some of the basics in jewellery making. She was on hand the whole morning to help when we got stuck and was there to make suggestions on how we could accomplish our design.
We also had the most delicious cake and tea in her gorgeous sitting room which was a lovely touch.
I would highly recommend to anyone who wants to try something new and learn a new skill.

Fabulous day
Aug 2018 • Friends
Having done two workshops - bead jewellery and wirework - I can honestly say both days were immensely enjoyable and very informative. Cathy is very generous with her supplies (most of which are included in the price although there are bits available to purchase), tea and coffee flows all day, the cakes at the start are amazing and the provided lunch on a full day workshop is delicious.

A wonderful day of creativity, friendship, laughter and great food!
Jun 2018 • Friends
I have now been twice to one of Cathy's jewellery-making days and plan to go at least three times more this year. I have no background in arts or crafts but under Cathy's excellent and patient guidance I have manage to make several beaded items that have been much admired. It's great fun too. The day is excellent value and the home-made cakes and coffee on arrival and delicious lunch form an added bonus.
