Testimonials from recent students:

“We were very pleased with our lampshade making course and both made a beautiful lampshade.
Julie was very informative and helpful just a lovely person.”

“Many thanks for giving us a thoroughly enjoyable time today: making lampshades, eating your scrumptious cake and generally having fun! it was a great pleasure to meet you and spend time in your lovely home.
I am absolutely thrilled to bits with my new lampshade and now feel confident to embark on making more – you gave an excellent course.”

“My only feed back is that you have a lovely teaching style, relaxed , friendly and not rushed.  For me, the perfect thing to do on my day off and the finale that gorgeous cake.  Just perfect!!!!”

“I travelled a long way for my one on one lesson with Julie, I live abroad, so a lot was riding on it as I had made a big investment to get there and it was the first step in a new business venture. I have been to a lot of art and craft tutorials and some tutors aren’t very good at imparting knowledge. Julie was great. The whole lesson felt uncluttered, from workspace to answers to all my questions. I learned about fabrics, suppliers, shapes and possibilities and before I knew it, I had made a lovely fabric covered 30cm drum shade. Julie fed me delicious home made cake, drove me to the station afterwards and then took time to answer dozens of questions on email. I felt really supported in the learning, before and after. Julie’s lesson is more affordable than many, but I opted for her as she came recommended by a lampshade supply company… I’m very happy to endorse that recommendation. Thank you Julie.”

“I had a really fun morning making a lampshade as a birthday treat with my mum and mother-in-law with Julie. We weren’t rushed and she explained the whole process really well. I’m not normally very good at anything creative, but thanks to Julie I’m really pleased with the lampshade I made and feel confident I could do another one. The cake she had made for us also amazing!”
