Feedback from 'real life' workshops.
"Kate was brilliant, she demonstrated and spent time ensuring we understood the techniques. I came away with some lovely necklaces, braclets and earrings that people have been asking me where I got them from.
The workshop itself was great, it was in Kate’s cute workshop.
I enjoyed it so much I have started making some pieces as presents for my friend which I find really relaxing. Thanks again Kate, a great day and I have found myself a new hobby! "
