Feedback from some of those who have been on our workshops

I just wanted to thank you for a most enjoyable day. It was a pleasure to meet you and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
S.... was so pleased that she had made something so beautiful for herself. I have put my pendant on a leather cord and I am
wearing it as I send this to you.
A........Wigan (PMC for Beginners Workshop 2009)

“I had the most brilliant time with Lesley and would highly recommend anyone to go round and ‘be amazed’ at what a total
beginner is able to achieve. Lesley managed to keep the timing on schedule, whilst explaining (with her vast knowledge),
each process in layman terms. I ended up with the most beautiful pendant and was so thrilled when I got home I was literally
bouncing off the walls with excitement.
I called all my friends to share in my excitement and amazement at what PMC is able to achieve.
Brilliant teacher, lovely surroundings and very well looked after throughout the day!!!
I would definitely go back for more courses!”
Caroline D.........Chester (PMC for Beginners Workshop 2009)

'Thank you for a lovely day at your PMC workshop. I thoroughly enjoyed myself, loved the final product and learnt so much.
Lunch was delicious! ......I'll be back.'
J.......Stockport (Introduction to PMC Workshop 2010)

I just wanted to say a very BIG THANK YOU to you both for your hospitality (coffee included!) and what a brilliant and inspiring
day I have had. I can't wait until tomorrow to start with my new PMC Clay making new creations but most of all I can't wait until
the 27th March to visit again and learn even more.
Sharon C.........Merseyside (Introduction to PMC Workshop 2010)

Thank you so much for your time on Sunday, I thoroughly enjoyed the day, definitely going to book onto one of your “ring” courses.

Just wanted to say a big thank you for the introduction course. I thoroughly enjoyed the day and was very pleased with my pendant.
Everyone who has seen my pendant is impressed. I definately will carry on and do some more.

Hi Lesley, Just wanted to thank you again for the workshop yesterday. I enjoyed learning a new skill and you are a very good
teacher. I am looking forward to practicing and will be having a look at the websites you suggested to get some equipment
together. I will try and get a print from my daughter to make something from!
Emma .........Cheshire (Fingerprint Jewellery Workshop 2010)

Just wanted to drop you a quick line to say a big thank you for making us feel so welcome on Saturday and for your patience
and expertise. Sasha and I both thoroughly enjoyed the workshop and were amazed and really pleased with the pendants
we created. Sasha is really keen to have a go at home, thanks for the inspiration!!

Thank you very much for the tuition you gave me last Thursday. I have now got some ideas....I enjoyed my day with you,
and hope to book you for more classes. Thank you again

Celia......... (Introduction to Silver Clay 2011)

Thanks for running the courses last week. I really enjoyed both of them and found them to be well organised, well-paced
and very interesting. It was nice to have the individual attention and I learned a lot and came away with lots of ideas which
will help me with my photography and with my jewellery making.

Eadaoin ............(Photography for Beginners and Introduction to Silver Clay 2011)

I just wanted to thank you for the workshop yesterday, I thoroughly enjoyed it and learnt a lot from you, so thank you so much.
I now feel confident to try and make a ring by myself.

Mary ............(Ring Making 2011)

Just wanted to say thanks again for Saturday, I really enjoyed it and am very proud of my pieces! am definitely going to invest in
some basic kit and start practicing so will contact you again maybe March time about a combined hand / fingerprint course.

Claire................(Introduction to Silver Clay 2012)

I just wanted to thank you for this course. It was a most enjoyable day. Which unlike some of the courses I have been on was full of helpful information.
We covered so much in just one day. I do hope I will be able to do a further course in the future.

Gill...............(Introduction to Silver Clay 2012)

I just wanted to say a huge thank you again for today and believe it or not
I actually like the star bead now so thought I'd show you what I've done with it... (pic on right)

I felt I had to drop you a line to say thank you for the great day yesterday (beginners workshop).
From the start there was a warm friendly atmosphere, which is always useful when you're learning, there was so much content to the day with plenty of instruction of the techniques that were new to me. I would certainly recommend your course to anyone interested in PMC. I am looking forward to the next stage hopefully not to far in the future.

Dawn................(Introduction to Silver Clay 2013)

Just to say a big thank you for the last 3 days. I have had a fab time :) thoroughly enjoyed everything :) and I have learned so much. Can't wait to do the next courses.
I'll be in touch when I get back :)

Jos......................(Fingerprint/Handprint 3 day course 2014)

I just wanted to say thank you for the workshop last week - I showed the pieces to my parents, and they were very impressed and encouraging that I should start using PMC clay

Kirsten.................(Introduction to Silver Clay 2014)

Hi Lesley. Thank you, for making the fingerprint workshop, a wonderful experience. I'm so pleased, with the two pendants, I made for my 60th. It was lovely to meet you . As I mentioned I am interested in making some cuff links, but that maybe more towards autumn time. Thank you again.

Debs .................(Fingerprint Workshop 2016)

Many thanks for your time and patience yesterday. I really enjoyed myself! Take care.
