I really enjoyed the session yesterday…

I really enjoyed the session yesterday and had great fun making my clay vase. Thank you for organising it. It was great that the clay and decorative bits were all supplied. I'm hoping to book on another session soon. Thanks, Sophie

Brilliant class

Absolutely loved the online 'air drying clay' session, it was just so nice to do something for myself, from the comfort of home. Being a single mum, I find it very hard to get out for classes, so this was the perfect solution. Nat was so lovely, she made it so enjoyable - thank you xxx

Excellent service! Great choices!

In the middle of lockdown, we ordered a number of craft packs from Alexis and were very pleased with the service. She helped us to choose some fantastic kits that our 4 year old loved. They were all great quality and personally delivered very quickly. I have already and would continue to highly recommend the creation station. I also run a homeschooling group on Facebook and can confirm that the members have all been really pleased with the offering and service available.

I absolutely loved Nats class!

I absolutely loved Nats class!! She made myself and my daughter feel so welcome on zoom!!! The class had a really cosy, casual feel, but I also learnt a new skill!!! Nat took time to make sure each of us felt confident! She valued our art and gave us lots of praise! I'm not arty, but I came away thinking I can do this!! This was my first class with Nat, and I will definitely be joining one of her classes again!!

Fabulous Alexis

Had a fab online mandala class with Alexis last night from the comfort of my own garden in North Staffs. Alexis made the whole thing really easy to follow, went the extra mile with our resources and I was super pleased with the result. She's also provided craft packs for my kids during lockdown which have been amazing.

Online Mandala Class

I really enjoyed the online Mandala class with Nat at Stafford South. She was really great at explaining the technique and made sure everyone felt at ease. There was a good mix of conversation and concentration! Nat was very professional, friendly and encouraging. I will definitely be doing more of her online classes in the future.
