    Thank you so much for hosting such a perfect day. Everything was fantastic. Your workshop, hospitality, friendly ness, everything was all 100%. I am certainly booking up as many other dates as I have time for asap. It was lovely to meet Helen. What a difference her relaxed, gentle manner made for my love of drawing & painting. I learnt so much. A wonderful lady. Thank you again for providing such a wonderful experience.

  2. Mothers Day Chocolate Experience – Sarah Knights

    I attended the chocolate making class for Mother’s Day, and thoroughly enjoyed it. I learnt so much about the art of making chocolate and truffles. My mother and I really had the best day! Julie and Brian were very welcoming and accommodating, providing teas and coffees and very tasty cake. I would definitely recommend Arts and Craft Days to everyone!

  5. Create Your own Textile Artwork – Beach Huts – Heidi Meier

    The course was well put together, well tutored and thoroughly enjoyable. It was my first attempt at machine appliqué embroidery and whilst I didn’t finish what I learned gave me the confidence to finish in my own time. The venue was delightful and lunch scrumptious

    I enjoyed my first ‘Arts and Crafts Day’ yesterday with my Mum! We booked on to the needle felting class with Lana and thoroughly enjoyed it! Both a new craft for us to try and already hooked! The facilities that Brian and Julie provide are fantastic and the extra attention to detail doesn’t go unmissed!….the home baked biscuits and cakes, just melt in your mouth, yum! Looking forward to trying a new craft soon! Highly recommend!

    Thanks for a fantastic day yesterday making a willow basket with Karen Lawrence. Brian and Julie are superb hosts, the whole experience at The Butterfly Studio was a pleasure and the lunch, pastries and cakes delicious. I have been wanting to try this new craft for a while and this was a fantastic introduction to the world of willow, Karen is a fantastic tutor and I hope to come to another of her workshops later this year.

  10. Hen Party – Willow Hearts – Karen Lawrence

    I recently went to a Hen Do at Art and Craft Days. We did willow weaving (which I was a little bit unsure of before hand) and absolutely loved it!! Great for a Hen Do (believe it or not there can be a lot of hilarious innuendo whilst willow weaving!!) We produced some lovely willow heart decorations for my friend’s wedding! The afternoon tea was delicious – I am gluten free and I always worry about what will be provided for me but they put on a lovely spread for me and even provided some gluten free shortbread with tea and coffee when we arrived! Brian and Julie were amazing hosts and nothing was too much trouble! I would definitely recommend and use them again!
