Would recommend to any beginners who want to know more.

Amelia Robbie Jun 2022


My teacher, Hénri, was willing to spend as much time as I needed in order to see if the Cricut machine would suit my needs. I was even able to send a design of my own across to test. Great service.

Glynis Fernandes Jun 2022


The teaching staff was very polite, friendly and helpful and answered all the questions I had. In an hour she covered a lot.

Margaret Solms Jun 2022

Jenny Summers Jun 2022


I am lucky enough to be receiving the Maker 3 machine as a birthday present and wanted to book this session prior to getting it, so that I could feel more comfortable using it. It was great to see it in action, and discuss what it is capable of doing. I cannot wait to get started.

I highly recommend Hobbycraft workshops. They are always value for money.

Laura Godsall Jun 2022


Great 1 to 1 session with George at Worcester, she was so helpful & friendly the entire session, ready to answer any questions i had regardless of whether they were silly or not! Thank you!

Jan Lowthian Jun 2022


Person taking the workshop was very helpful with useful tips and made it easy to understand

Sue Last Jun 2022


Ruby was great. She answered all the questions I came with and where necessary showed me on the equipment. She taught me how to use the transfer film and use the vinyl to decorate an object. I have come away much more knowledgeable about my Cricut machine and excited to see the projects I can create.

Sarah Young Jun 2022


The class was great! The staff memeber was really knowledgeable and I learned so much about my Cricut machine that I would not have been able to find out on my own.

Christina Mitrea Jun 2022


The workshop was a great overview of the machine and different tools. Was also great to actually see the Cricut in action. The lady who run it was really helpful and I could ask any questions I had

Melody Caneda Jun 2022


The teacher is so good and expert of cricut. We have learned a lot and motivated to start making projects. I highly recommend this workshop.

Tracey Stephenson Jun 2022


This taster answered all of my questions about the cricut ,the staff member was patient with me and showed me how to use some materials and advised me on starting up my ideas . I will be using some of the other classes for cricut in the future thankyou

Ana Lowe Jun 2022


It was an amazing opportunity to see the machine in action. The facilitator was able to answer all my questions and provide very useful information on top. I really liked the fact that I was given the chance to do a couple of projects myself just to have the experience and judge myself whether is the right machine for me or not.
I did the workshop without having purchased the machine. I do recommend the workshop, even for beginner tips such as how to maintain the mats, difference in mat grips, tools etc which it would take a lot longer to research on my own

Kerry James Jun 2022


It was fantastic the lady teaching was very very knowledgeable and answered all questions I had! I could of stayed all night! Lol x

Georgina James Jun 2022


The session was good. There was technical difficulties trying to connect the Cricut maker 3 to the tablet in order to have a demonstration however had a chance to work on a design using one of the other machines available. The tutor was extremely helpful and had extensive knowledge about the range of projects that can be done using the Cricut. Can’t wait to get started using my own now p

Sue Baker May 2022

Loretta Rehm May 2022


The teacher was absolutely brilliant, she showed me a lot of tips and asked if I had a particular thing I'd like to learn and then let me do some bits that I had doubts and explained how to improve what I was doing. Also gave tips of materials that could be used for the project I have in mind. I'll definitely book another workshop in future!

Jo Beslee May 2022


I thoroughly enjoyed my beginners Cricut teach-in. My assistant was Page, at Rochester, and she was brilliant. I was lacking confidence but she helped me enormously and I know have courage to get my Make 3 work for me, at last.

Gladys Clark May 2022

Janet Williams May 2022

Rashpal Sanghera May 2022


Trainer was really good and informative. Approachable
Excellent communication and skills
Materials and machine provided

Jennifer Sumption May 2022


I did this out of interest as having recently retired I'm looking for things to keep me busy. Lisa is lively, friendly and very knowledgeable on Cricut, knew the answers to my questions and went through what the machine can do, which is extensive, in a logical and methodical way.
My only negative is the table where you're sat is a bit in the open, I realise for the shop it's a good way to pique people's interest but a corner area might have been better, creating less footfall and distraction.
I enjoyed the hour discovering what Cricut can do and if, like me you're at a bit of a loss, book an hour, have a look and you never know your creative skills could well be unlocked!

Sue Burrows May 2022


The teacher was brilliant, the course was amazing value for money and I intend to do a follow up course based on this experience.

Vicki Holton May 2022


Great tutorial which ended up being 1-2-1. I’m a complete novice and the teacher was great at taking me through everything from set-up, the software and all the different things you can do with the Cricut. Has definitely de-mystified it for me!

Louise Donker May 2022


This was my 1st time attending a workshop at hobbycraft, I wanted to learn about the cricut maker before I bought it. The artisan teacher was very knowledgeable and was able to give us a good basic knowledge of how to work the machine and how to use design space. She was clear and easy to understand. I would have liked to have seen a range of samples, to show what the machine can produce. Using different materials to enhance the workshop visually. These could then be talked about explaining the tools and products needed to create such crafts.

Victoria Rigby Apr 2022


Excellent class. I only bought my Cricut machine last week and Dany went through everything I needed to be confident using both the machine and Design Space. The class was held upstairs away from the rest of the shop which made the experience a lot more comfortable. Highly recommend for any newbies.

Eden Wright Apr 2022


Tutor Sarah ensure she covered all the questions. Learnt something new and left the class with a little goodie to try and at home.

Lynn Marley Apr 2022


I loved this workshop. Kristal was so engaging, she made sure I understood a process before we moved on and equally if I already knew a process she moved on to something else. The workshop was tailored to fit what I already knew which was great because I learnt new things but as we were chatting if Kristal had any tips and tricks she let me know. The space we were in was the shop floor which was fine but I can see it being busy with a full workshop.

Leanne Wheadon Apr 2022


Sarah was so informative and have some great tips.

She was very knowledgeable and know exactly what she doing

Sylvia Samms Apr 2022


The teacher was very professional and helpful. She answers all of my questions. She also interduce me to some materials that will help me to use the machine effectively.
I am happy that I have attended the class, because now I am doing some designs on the machine.
Thanks for all your help
From Sylvia Samms

Deborah Turner Apr 2022


The workshop only had 3 attendees. I knew nothing about the product at all. We helped make a cushion cover. I am not sure if I got what I was expecting from the workshop. I came away a little disappointed. The product is very expensive to purchase both the unit and the accessories. Will not be purchasing one anytime soon

Anna Matthews Apr 2022


It was a great workshop and I had lots of fun learning too.
I would definitely recommend doing this workshop.

Ken Best Apr 2022


The course was so much better than expected and at £5 was excellent value for money. Every question was answered expertly and I came away with a much better idea of the full capabilities of the Maker 3. I was inspired enough to purchase materials for my next project. Well done Hobbycraft !

Laura Skinner Apr 2022


Jill was an amazing teacher, I learnt so much in an hour with Jill than I could have every learnt myself.

Abby is such a great teacher! I went to this workshop as I was overwhelmed with all the information when trying to learn online but Abby broke everything down so simply, demonstrated clearly and answered all my questions. I highly recommend this class and have booked others to attend so I can learn more. Thank you Abby, I had a great time learning with you!

Stella Iwobi Mar 2022

Ruth James Mar 2022


I had an excellent hour, the lady who took the session explained the machine really well and gave really helpful introduction to it.

Laura Chabeaux Mar 2022

Susan Turner Feb 2022


It was cancelled due to staff illness and so rebooked it again for next week.

Marion Dickinson Feb 2022


Great use of 1 hour packed with useful tips and hints, enjoyed it immensely. Look forward to returning back for another face to face course.

Sharon Jones Feb 2022


Mum and I really enjoyed the class. Mart was friendly and welcoming and very knowledgable. Store lost it’s internet connection part way into the class which was obviously out of the staff’s control. This did not affect the delivery of the class as it proved that you could still do most of your projects from a smart phone! Well worth the money.

Cathy Williams Feb 2022


Booked a beginners Cricut class.
I was the only one that had booked so had a one to one on the basics of the machine and a few tips on questions that I asked.
Ellie, who did the class was friendly and helpful and knowledgeable with the cricut maker.
Only problem I had was that I use a laptop and she used an IPad so things were a bit confusing at times as it wasn’t the same.
Apart from that very good value for the money.

Mark Andrews Feb 2022


Excellent introduction to Maker 3, answered all the question we had, will definitely be going again

Trisha Inglis Feb 2022


Teacher was so helpful, learned so much. Off to a flying start with my Cricut Maker 3.

Karen Ephgrave Feb 2022


Hannah was so patient explaining things to us begginers. Her knowledge of the equipment and software made it a really good introduction.

Leanne Rees Feb 2022


Hannah was a great teacher and the class was very informative. I learned a lot, thank you!

Emma Burgess Feb 2022


I had a lovely lesson with Sharon. She was very knowledgeable, and made the whole class fun. I learned a lot, and feel more confident using my cricut.

Sandra Roe-Johns Feb 2022


Great introduction to the cricut maker 3 from a very knowledgeable enthusiastic & engaging tutor. I got lots of hints & tips. Would highly recommend.

Marcia Williams Feb 2022


The teacher Jackie was awesome, she was knowledgeable, patient and calm, she explained with clarity
Jackie understood how the Cricut maker 3 worked, she explained the difference tools and how they worked.
Her demonstration was delivered with a step by step guide
The price was ok.
The venue was ok, however, it would be better if we were seated, with a television screen type equipmentI would have glady paid more money if Jackie was able to carry out her demonstration in a more relaxed environment.
I am sold on cricut machines they are awesomefantastic creativity platform.
Looking forward to using my Cricut Maker 3.
I intend to attend more advanced classes.
My gratitude to Jackie for making it seem easy to use the Cricut machine even though I am not technology savvy.

Emily Ford Feb 2022


Janine was absolutely amazing! I went in petrified of my cricut machine and kept with a much better understanding and exciting to start! She was full of knowledge and didn't mind all my questions! Would definitely recommend ❤

Dawn Doidge Feb 2022

Helen Elliot Feb 2022


Lucy was a super teacher learnt a lot in an hour, very informative.
Can't wait to start all my projects.

Sue Phillips Feb 2022


A very helpful informative class! We could ask as many questions as we needed to , would recommend to anyone wanting to use the cricut machines, either as beginners or to advance your skills!

Ms Style Feb 2022


I arrived today with my daughter for cricut maker demonstration but the staff member who does it wasn’t working. So had a wasted journey and don’t live local either

Susan Braham Feb 2022


Chrissie, our teacher, was knowledgeable and answered my myriad questions very comprehensibly. There was a great deal of material to cover in one hour and I look forward to having further lessons when I buy my new machine.
The venue was not easily accessible for me as the room was up a flight of steep stairs.
We were able to look at a large range of Chrissie's own tools for the Cricut Maker, although the Cricut Maker 3 was not demonstrated and it was not 'hands on'. At £5 it was very good value for more than an hour's class and it convinced me that I would like to own the Maker 3.

Laura Sturgess Feb 2022


The teacher was so inspirational and really informative. I learned so much about using the Cricut tools - it was lovely to have a small group and it was good value for money. Great to see samples of cutting and design.

Angela McCarthy Feb 2022


Given that I haven’t yet taken the machine out the box, I figured I’d book this to catalyst the process. Jordyn was very informative re the different types of blades and how to attempt specific projects.

Karen Durden Jan 2022


Hayley was really helpful and very knowledgeable. I already have a Maker so she was able to show me the new features with the Maker 3. The hour went really quickly!

Bethan Shore Jan 2022


Had a brilliant hour - my teacher had so much knowledge and was very friendly. All my questions were answered and more

Caroline Guizonne Jan 2022

Jacqueline Walsh Jan 2022


Had our full attention. Very informative with the product and tools required.
Provided useful information on possible projects.
Very pleasing, relaxed hour

Lucy Anderson Jan 2022

Emma Tomlinson Jan 2022


Cassie was lovely, session was informative. I would definitely recommend. I left the session feeling fired up and keen to get started.

Lily Tobin Jan 2022


The teacher Steph was wonderful, she answered all of our questions and gave us confidence to use our new machine.

Sarah Clark Jan 2022


Small class, informative and good demo on specific machine, and materials. Friendly and relaxed surroundings for class

Jennifer Jones Jan 2022


The tutor was very friendly and polite and I enjoyed the class - however I would have liked to see more demonstration which didn’t seem possible using the app and maybe she should be given a desk top to be able to truly demonstrate the Cricut to its best

Sonji Charlton Jan 2022


Teacher was enthusiastic about Cricut which made the session engaging. Good value for money. I will definitely consider more sessions in the future and recommend to friends

Jane Bland Jan 2022


Great lady Joanne, was really helpful what a shame these workshops are not run with a pc and chair/desk etc, wish it was a half day course.

Sharon Marshall Jan 2022


Great class, teacher was really helpful. A good basic class for those that might not have used their cricut yet. Talked about:
Design space
Different materials
Mats
Fonts
Answered all questions. Well worth it for just £5

Valerie Savage Jan 2022


Krystal was a very good teacher. The setting was good, if a little cold as the shop doors were broken!
I’m still not sure what I want from a cricut but Krystal helped rule out what I don’t require from the machine

Joanne Nevinson Jan 2022


Great class and the teacher was great too. It was a general overview of the maker 3 rather than focusing on anything specific.

Nicola Farquharson-Roberts Jan 2022


Really enjoyed the session. Kristel was friendly, knowledgable and tailored the content to our needs. It really gave me a good overview of where I could start and how the system and machine works.

Alison Anderson Jan 2022


Rona was a knowlegable friendly tutor and was able to answer all my questions. Heading home now, very enthusiastic to have a play with my Cricut and put my new found knowledge to use. Thank you Hobbycraft for running these workshops.

Helen Bate Jan 2022


Fantastic demonstration. The tutorial covered the features of the machine, how to use the software, different mediums, and the tools. Person (sorry, I've forgotten her name) was very knowledgeable and was able to answer my questions. Now that I've seen it in action, I am very likely to buy one.

Gillian Stevens Jan 2022


Very informative, good demonstration. Would definitely recommend. Enjoy the workshops at the local shop. Thanks

Suzanne Hack Jan 2022


Excellent tutor, clear explanations and demonstrations, learned so much about the functions of Cricut Maker. Good to have workshop in shop so all materials quick to refer to. Excellent value for money. Thank you.

Sarah Robinson Jan 2022


Unfortunately I was turned away as the member of staff didn’t know I was attending. Despite being able to prove the booking the member of staff had already started a one to one class with someone else who looked horrified at the thought of someone else joining in. It was explained to me that appointments had been moved in order to accommodate the other ladies lesson. The member of staff took my name and phone number and I haven’t heard back since. I mean, I had obviously booked in otherwise I wouldn’t have had the email and text reminders and the ability to write a review.
Bitterly disappointed, it takes along time to get to my nearest hobbycraft and this was my first workshop with you

Denise Mathers Jan 2022


Excellent teacher, informative class, very helpful, and enjoyable. It was Good value for the money.

Karen Cuthbertson Jan 2022


Thanks Tina for a very informative session, can’t wait to get started on my own project

Julie Jordan Jan 2022


Thoroughly enjoyed the class and tutor was excellent ! As someone who was “wanting” the machine, I have come away “needing” it. So now need to work out exactly what items I require for my purpose! Such a versatile machine that does more than I thought it did.

Sheila Robson Jan 2022


Very useful but I will need a lot more tutorials,I shall definitely book more workshops

Nicola Gardner Jan 2022


Becky was excellent, patient and thorough.
I would have got a better experience if she was able to demonstrate the Design space app on a larger screen, with 4 students and one facilitator it was impossible to get close enough to the tablet to see what she was doing.
I would give Becky 10/10.

Susan Ash Jan 2022


The class turned out to be one-to-one as no other participants attended the session. This meant that I was able to ask specific questions about my needs and get all the information I needed from the session.
My instructor was incredibly friendly and helpful and made me feel very welcomed and very comfortable throughout the whole session.
I would definitely consider attending a further session at this center.

Barbara Watts Jan 2022


Very good and pleasant staff.
Helpful with some problems and what I could do and not do

Susan Fothergill Jan 2022


An ideal beginners class. Just what I needed to start my first project. The hour just flew by.

Charlotte Spong Jan 2022


Good value for money.
The teacher was was well informed and very helpful and adaptable.

Sue Taylor Jan 2022


Kayley was a fantastic tutor who has inspired me to crack on with my new Cricut Maker 3
I would highly recommend this class for new owners of Cricut machines

Beginner's Guide to Cricut Maker 3 review by Sue Taylor Sydney

Gillian Ryan Jan 2022


The teacher was friendly and informative. I am a little more informed about materials and tools I need to purchase. It was a little advanced for my mum who has no idea about these types of machines. She was lost at the word Bluetooth. I will need to practice at home and then pop in and ask for more advice.
The course can be improved by using the Cricut iron to complete something on fabric and paper. Very good though and open to random questions

Abbie Warnock Jan 2022


Excellent value for money. Melissa was a brilliant teacher. Very informative and a great introduction for getting started with my Cricut Maker 3.

Jayne Caffley Jan 2022


The girl giving the course (I think her name was Jordyn) was brilliant! Very knowledgeable and very passionate about the product. She uses it herself and was able to share a lot of experience and tips. This was a really useful course and would recommend to anyone who is just starting out with cricut.

Debbie Lees Jan 2022


Great little lesson and as I was the only attendee it was tailored to my needs. Very helpful and an informative tutor. Thank you

Jen Greenslade Jan 2022


Fantastic workshop. The lady that taught me was great, really informative and showed me lots of handy hints and tips. She showed me bits and bobs she had created herself and had some great recommendations on which bits I could purchase for my new machine.

Amy Annas Dec 2021


My teacher was fantastic! She was really excited about circut and all the wonderful things they can do. She also answered all my questions, gave me lots of tips and really built up my confidence to use the cricut on my own. The workshop was very informative and really great for the price. I was shown how to use the smart permanent vinyl in black and pink and had a go at design space, cutting an image and transfering it to a plaque! I've taken it home to complete! Hobbycraft Ipswich is a lovely store with lovely, friendly staff! Thank you! Can't wait to book another workshop.

Jamie Murray Dec 2021


The girl jordyn that took our class was fantastic. I have had my cricut for nearly a year and never took it out the box as I didn’t k is where to start with it, but after jordyns tutorial I couldn’t wait to have a go, she explained everything from start to finish and took time to answer any questions I had, I really enjoyed it and left really excited to finally get mines out the box and have a go.

Had to re-book as system was down. Teacher was friendly, would have liked to have gone into more things to do with the maker

Corinne Jay Nov 2021


Shannon was very good :)
She explained in alot of detail about the machine what is can do etc.
She also explained the tools and accessories that you can use with it. She was very passionate.

Angela Larkin Nov 2021


Great workshop. Inspired me to have a go and start Cricut projects. Workshop leader had good product knowledge

Teresa Little Nov 2021


Workshop was informative and leader certainly knew her Cricut Makers. I do card making and certainly the cricut maker could take it up to another level but in this instance, I do not think it would be worthwhile me investing in the Cricut as I do not make sufficient cards to warrant the outlay. I am pleased I did the workshop, no regrets whatsoever.

Lynda Edemenson Nov 2021


Counter was too low i suffer from trapped nerve in my back . Bit uncomfortable otherwise ok

Jessica Hagan Nov 2021


Good value for money. The teacher seemed knowledgeable and was very friendly and approachable. I would book on another workshop in the future

Sylvia Holmes Nov 2021


The teacher, Sarah, was extremley knowledgeable and able to answer all questions well and provide many tips. Sarah made the experience well worth while being pleasant and attempting to meet all customer needs.
We were given smart vinyl to produce our own samples. I would have liked to see the machines other capabilities - such as drawing and scoring, rather than only focusing on vinyl. It was very good value for money and confirmed my thoughts to purchase a Cricut.

Deepti Parrikar Nov 2021


Claire was wonderful and the workshop was very informative. Definitely recommend this workshop for beginners

Roberta Kibble Nov 2021


This was fantastic the tutor was very informative and friendly for the money I would definitely recommend it to anyone and I would without doubt go again.
Looking forward to my next one

Cheryl Westbury Nov 2021


I didn't get to use the product myself.
Was hoping for a demonstration on using fabric. Not available.
Focused on smart card.

Pamela Evans Nov 2021


This was a very interesting class. It was particularly good for people who have just purchased or who are considering buying this machine.
The staff were more than happy to show us how to use different materials with the machine, or adapt their teaching to our wishes.

Jane Woods Nov 2021


Kat was lovely. A bit of technology issues but other than that found it useful. I'm not sure why you charge for itits not really a workshop as you don't do anythingits more information about how to use the cricutor it would be nice to get a voucher to spend on a purchase. I went on to buy a cricut.

Karen Moore Nov 2021


Very informative class with a friendly member of staff . Would recommend a class to others

Leta Randall Nov 2021


Aileen was a good teacher who wasn’t fazed by demonstrating Design Space & Cricut Maker 3 from behind.
Some of us had specific questions for her and she answered them by demonstrating on the Cricut machine which will, hopefully, stay in our memory longer than an oral answer.
We were taught how to “slice”and also “kern” letters. A good tip from Aileen was to duplicate the image being worked on in case something went wrong and the image was lost. She also covered “hinge” layering.
The venue was pleasant except it was extremely cold - apparently the temperature in the shops is controlled by Head Office. This is why I didn’t give the class 5 stars

Susan Haslam Nov 2021


I booked this workshop having seen Cricut but not knowing where to start - so many gadgets and films! The session was clear and understandable to me with no experience. Our teacher was really helpful in answering individual questions and ideas. It was helpful to see a small project "come to life".
The venue was comfortable, bright and inviting.

Bill Lodge Nov 2021


Well presented - informal but flexible and covered the main points.
Demo length about right - longer and we'd be struggling to find questions.

Elizabeth Norcross Nov 2021


Teacher was very good and knowledgeable. Value for money. Would have liked a demonstration on the machine but otherwise happy. Thank you

Julia Shenton Nov 2021


The teacher was very knowledgeable and answered all my questions. She was helpful regarding purchases too.

Debbie Callway Nov 2021


Good venue and excellent value for money. Helpful knowledgable tutor. Good course if you’ve just got your machine.

Victoria Russell Nov 2021


Claire is so knowledgeable on the Cricut Maker, I don’t doubt I could have spent hours learning with her! Her tutorial was clear, well paced and was able to answer all of my questions and queries, including to do with model comparisons. She was able to explain the software, the equipment and all additional tools. Excellent class and excellent teacher. I went home and ordered a Cricut Maker, and I can’t wait! Definitely recommend

Tammy Ward Nov 2021


Amber was amazing today. I have taken away so much knowledge and confidence to use my Cricut.

Becky Evans Nov 2021


Penny was lovely and full of useful information. I will be practicing what she has taught me and booking another class soon.

Isabelle Ewing Nov 2021


Helpful and pleasant. Irene explained how to get started with cricut and made it seem easy. I will definitely do more classes.

Karen Sword Nov 2021


Karen @ Chichester branch was great, she was very informative and I learnt how to use cricut which is exactly what I wanted to learn, we used vinyl, card and pens.

Maimuna Khan Nov 2021


Fran was very knowledgeable. All questions asked were answered and more.
It would've been nice to have seen the machine at work. Although I understand that design space is the main element to the cricut maker.
Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to know what cricut maker 3 is all about. Thanks

Amaka Oyeh Nov 2021


Katrina was lovely and helped to answer the questions I was curious about.
This includes downloading and cutting svg files, card making, sticker making and scoring.

Sue Crotty Nov 2021


I thought page did very well On the lesson. explained everything clearly. It was very interesting I might book for the next one

Annette Parsons Nov 2021


The lady was lovely. I was disappointed. I particularly booked this as a Cricut Maker 3 but the machine the lady had on view was not this machine so she was constantly referring to the differences on show.
Her knowledge of the machines was incredible and her willingness to pass this information on was wonderful. She was let down by the lack of the appropriate machine.

Mariel Tompsett Nov 2021


Brilliant and detailed training by Zoe of hobbycraft ashford Kent branch. Enjoyed it so much.

Angela Sullivan-Brown Nov 2021


Brilliant idea to have the workshops. I was over the moon when I saw you ran them.

I was very lucky to have a one to one session. Have me a good opportunity to see what the circuit was like and which one suited my needs. The teacher was so lovely, very knowledgeable and patient as I asked questions. I got to see it action and how to use design space and the meanings of the different icons. After the session I left convinced which machine to get and projects in mind.

Brilliant idea - I look forward to other workshops in the near future.

The venue was great for me as it's local.

Samantha Holden Nov 2021


Shelly was really knowledgable about the products. It’s great to get first hand knowledge as she uses them herself so gave great advice, tips & recommendations. It was defintly and worthwhile if you are new to the circut range.

Rachel Posani Nov 2021


The lady was super friendly, wish I remembered her name so I could mention her! Very informative. Learned a lot and it was great having the face to face to ask questions.

Noeleen Agnew Nov 2021


Great teacher, very enjoyable, very helpful, everyone very friendly and great sharing ideas. lots more ideas to try out now.

Julie Bradley-Thorne Nov 2021


Thinking about buying a Cricut Maker 3, but felt a bit overwhelmed ,so booked this workshop. So glad I did , Hayley was so knowledgeable about the machine and gave a really good demonstration and explanation . I am now really looking forward to buying one and getting started, will definitely book another workshop.

Julia Furlong Nov 2021


The class was very good. I learnt a lot from it and asked lots of questions that got answer and had things shown as well.

THANKYOU

Carrie Lennon Nov 2021


Both Ams and Hannah who ran the course were extremely knowledgeable about the machine and all the ways it can be used. We had a good demonstration and saw many examples of how it had been used to create different items. I came away with so many different ideas. It has certainly made me want to purchase one.

Elizabeth Benson Nov 2021
