It was a great experience! Barbara is a very hospitable host and she passed some of her extensive knowledge and skills, to help me prepare and organise the materials, to then make a lovely bracelet, which I intend to give to my mother, as part of her upcoming 80th birthday. Following the workshop, it was lovely to then take a lovely walk around the nearby Nature Walk, Houghton Hall Park and enjoy the beautiful scenery with a delicious Sausage and Bacon Bun and a cup of coffee from the cafeteria. Highly recommend the whole experience .

It was an awesome experience that I was able to learn how to make earrings and bracelet for myself. Barbara is a very good teacher with lots of patience. I recommend this for all ladies, teenagers and also the guy's that want to learn.
