    Great studio in a beautiful location and a wonderful day of willow weaving. The hospitality was second to none – I’ve never eaten so many cakes in one day! Great tutor in Deb and I will be booking again.

    Thank you so much for a lovely day today Brian and Julie. You looked after us so well and took so much trouble to make everything perfect for us. My husband was very impressed with my up cycled piece so it has been a thoroughly great day! Thank you again – it was brilliant.

  3. Helen Rubinstein – Snowdrops Watercolour

    Hi  Brian and Julie Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed Helen Rubinstein’s ‘Snowdrops’ workshop. I was very impressed with the professional way in which you have created your business. It was a warm, friendly and cosy atmosphere and surroundings, and Julie the food was delicious. I wish you every success with your new adventure, and I will certainly be coming again.

    Regards Kathie

  4. Make a Felt Hat in a Day

    I thoroughly enjoyed myself on Friday, it was a fun day.  Kris was a very nice person and a good tutor.  It has made me think of joining her felt bag day in August.  I did go a little mad on Friday when shrinking my hat and I am now trying to enlarge it!  I will have to have a go at making another one! I’m looking forward to seeing you again in July.

  7. Christmas Wreaths & Swags

    Dear Brian and Julie, Just wanted to send a quick email to say a massive thankyou for today, both Lisa and I enjoyed ourselves very much and are very proud of our wreaths and swags. I must admit, I wasn’t expecting such a fantastic lunch, pastries & tea, it really was lovely. Unfortunately I am not on facebook but will certainly recommend your art and craft days, and am sure that I will be booking another course in the new year. Once again, thank you very much.

  8. Carole Massey – Human & Animal Portraits

    Dear Brian and Julie I just wanted to say a big “thank you” to you both for a thoroughly enjoyable two days. I’ve learnt a lot from Carole’s excellent teaching and sharing others’ experiences. Your great set up at Butterfly is so welcoming and your hospitality wonderful. It was everything I’d hoped for in a course and more – so stimulating but yet relaxing. We are lucky to have this gem so close. Your leaflets will be definitely be passed on. I hope to see you again soon.

    All the best, Helen
