What a great discovery - Nessa is a great teacher, patient with excellent skills and knowledge. Lovely small class and great value. I will be back. Soon!

Felix Feb 2024

Mrs Monica Shackman Feb 2024


I was in the very fortunate situation to have a one to one session with the teacher, Sofia. She was very patient and explained everything to me so thoroughly. Also she was so friendly, we "got on like a house on fire".

Katie Collins Jan 2024


I had a fabulous time - Sofia is a wonderful teacher! I highly recommend this class

Florence Chatelain Jan 2024


Fabulous workshop. Vanessa, my tutor for the day has the patience of an angel and help me understanding the pattern the pattern and show me the tricky techniques of increasing and decreasing stitches. In a coup,e of hours I had completed a very cute octopus and had the confidence to make more!

Anne Philomena Barratt Jan 2024


This was an excellent course. Nessa created a friendly atmosphere where it was easy to learn. She was very clear and patient. I ended up feeling confident that had learned the basics of crocheting. The three sessions was long enough to consolidate what I was learning and I believe it will be easy to improve my technique and skills with practice. A very enjoyable experience altogether. Thank you Nessa

This has been a wonderful course. The three week course enables students to learn basic techniques and build skills up to more complex crochet projects. Nessa has been such a fantastic teacher/mentor. She is patient, humourous and makes the class very fun and interesting. Hope there are more intermediate classes available in the new year!

I had a great lesson with Nessa! I learnt how to do button holes and how to change colours when knitting. I love Nessa’s attitude. She’s flexible, can easily adapt a pattern to fit what I want to do, makes it feel all is effortless! Thank you!

I had the best and loveliest time at the Four Otter’s Knitting Social! Come for the knitting and stay for the lovely conversation, helpful tips, and delicious cake!

Nessa was very knowledgable and talked us through the whole process and how we could attempt our own projects. Would recommend!

Sofia was very welcoming and the studio space was great. Everything was very clearly explained and demonstrated. I left having had a enjoyable two hours and feeling that I learnt a lot, with the skills to complete my hat at home. Thank you.

Sarah Yandell Oct 2023


This was an excellent class. I had a great time and have so much more confidence to be able to go and follow other patterns now. It was a super cosy way to spend a winters eve as well!

I have just made a woolly hat from an old sweater with Sofia at Four Otter Craft Studio. It was brilliant, the teacher had several items we could choose from to make and she guided me through my hat making step by step and gave me some ideas for decorative edges. It was fun and relevant to our concerns for re-purposing items rather than throwing them away and this gave me lots of ideas to try at home. Sofia was warm and patient and very enthusiastic about passing on her tips and ideas. It was great to go home with a new hat! I'd highly recommend this class and the Studio which is well-equipped and very cosy.

Circular Economy Week - Sweater Recycling Class review by Jane Musgrove - London

My tutor Nessa was very encouraging and gave clear instructions both written and verbal. She clarified things I didn't understand and generally de-mystified the construction of a sock so that I felt I understood its' anatomy. She was patient and let me move at my own pace each step of the way. The materials were good, perhaps I would have enjoyed choosing my own type and colour of yarn but this was a minor point. I enjoyed everything about the class and I honestly did not think I would leave with a completed mini sock but thanks to Nessa's patience and expert guidance, I did! FourOtter Studio is a great, well-equipped creative space in a lovely venue close to Wood Green tube. Fab!

Really knowledgeable tutor, after looking at samples progressed from casting on and learning specific technique to simple pattern making, and then how to read and create using the technique in a printed pattern. Tutor on hand to explain & help with all and any moments of confusion!
They only teach small groups and individually, highly recommended and I will certainly book with them again

Sue Humphrey Sep 2023


Thought the tutor was great and explained everything in plain ,easy language . Nice venue . Everything supplied and was able to bring home the project to continue at home
