“Just wanted to thank you for putting on such a brilliant workshop with Ruth Issett. I travelled quite a long way, at a very busy time, because I really wanted to work with such a high-calibre tutor and it was definitely worth it. The sessions were very comprehensively planned and well-resourced with lots of samples of Ruth’s work to examine; the atmosphere was friendly and very conducive to learning. The venue and facilities were very good and your organisation was superb from start to finish. I went home to finish my wonderful little book of colour samples with a smile on my face. Over the years, I’ve been to many, many workshops and this ranks very highly on my list. I’m really looking forward to more top-quality workshops and have already booked one for October.”

“I thoroughly enjoyed Ruth’s workshop. She is so knowledgeable and helpful. Although I had done dyeing before it was interesting to learn a different approach. Working with the group meant we were able to share ideas and see the results of everyone’s efforts. I’ll definitely sign up for another workshop.”

“The venue was easy to find and well set out for the day. The course was excellent from start to finish and Angie was very inspiring when talking about her work. Looking forward to seeing what else is offered at this venue”

“Textile Explorations workshop with Ruth Issett was fabulous! She is an outstanding teacher. Two enjoyable days.”

“I always enjoy Textile Exploration workshops, Becca picks such excellent tutors and the venue is easy to find and has a good cafe for lunch. The Angie Hughes Daisy wrap workshop was no exception, Angie was brilliant. I learnt a lot, got inspiration for other projects I am contemplating and met some lovely like minded people. A great day all round. Really looking forward to the next Textile Exploration workshop!”

“This was an utterly fantastic 2 day felting workshop. Jackie is incredibly talented and a fantastic tutor. She was both informative and funny! The venue was great and Becca was always on hand to help. I cannot recommend highly enough!”
