"I thoroughly enjoyed my day. Kate did a fab job of of teaching, I loved learning new skills in a lovely calm atmosphere. Our fellow tealighters were a delight too, its so nice to meet new people.
As a beginner I didn't expect to produce something as lovely as my tiffany tea light holder, I only did this with the help and encouragement from Kate. Would certainly recommend this workshop, It's a great day out."
