Daler Rowney Mixed Media Boho Art with Jenny Muncaster



Really enjoyed the workshop. The kit was delivered a few days before the course and was great value. The tutor was excellent and explained things well, although it was quite challenging to keep up at times. I was really pleased with the results.

One-to-one Sewing Workshop



Hannah Jay has been most helpful to my daughter in giving her tips and ideas to pursue her interest in machine sewing. Couldn’t have wished for a more kind or helpful expert for this session.

Great to learn a new skill. A really nice thing to do for the afternoon. Bought as a Christmas present for my 10 year old daughter and it was a pleasure to take part. Ideal for adults or older children alike. Jenny was enthusiastic and helpful and kept the energy up throughout. Thanks Hobbycraft!

Very good - time goes so quickly. Would be good to have a bit longer. Thank you


Sarah Wrobel Jan 2022

Punch Needle Plant Workshop



It was a lovely way to learn a different craft, and I felt at ease after learning we wouldn’t be able to finish the project. All questions were answered so that my friend and I are feeling confident to finish with a beautiful end product.


Helen Holland Jan 2022

One-to-one Cricut Workshop



Really helpful . Christie was lovely, very patient. As a complete beginner Cricut seems daunting but Christie has given me the confidence to get started.

Daler Rowney Mixed Media Boho Art with Jenny Muncaster



I had an incredible time on this workshop. Jenny is fun, engaging, talented and creative which makes the whole session easy to follow and be a part of. The kit is beautifully packaged and inspirational. The products are all fabulous. I just wish the class was longer as I would have loved to do more!


Tina Miles Jan 2022

Beginner's Guide to Cricut Iron-On



Loved this workshop! Chrissie, as always, was great at answering all our questions and making it fun as well as informative. Lots of great tips and inspiration. I feel much more confident in using my easy press now. I’d recommend these workshops to anyone who is new to the easy press and needs that little extra nudge to get started with it.


Hester Dalgleish Jan 2022

Beginner's Guide to Knitting Workshop



I liked the class but I am not always as quick to get things straight away so felt like because I struggled with the first step, I couldn't then do the next steps and ended up having to struggle and just watch instead. Maybe this is just me but do find it hard to go at the different teachers speed sometimes.


Sharon Wright Jan 2022

Beginner's Guide to Crochet Workshop



I found the course was very good for an experienced knitter. One thing, a you tube video was shared in the Zoom call but when the time for the course times out, the YouTube link disappears as the course is timed out. Can the link be emailed to those attending the course?


Alvera Beynon Jan 2022

Beginner's Guide to Brush Lettering



Really fun & enjoyed a bit repetitive but needed to know all letters. A birthday card sample would have been useful Love the book & more joined up letters Hour not long enough


Kelly Parsons Jan 2022

Daler Rowney Mixed Media Boho Art with Jenny Muncaster



The 1hr Course was great. Jenny was fantastic, very informative and the project was very easy to follow. The supplies you have delivered were great too- good quality products. I will definitely be seeing what other courses are available!


Claire Stanford Jan 2022

One-to-one Cricut Workshop



Irene was really friendly and very knowledgable. She was able to help me with everything that I asked and always gave time for me to ask questions and was able to answer all of them in great detail. She was also very willing to give me lots of tips and tricks to make using the joy easier.


Katherine Gomme Jan 2022

Beginner's Guide to Crochet Workshop



Lovely workshop but no where near enough time to learn the basics of crochet I ended up with a large knot.


Emma Clark-Monks Jan 2022

Floral Sketching Workshop



I found it hard to follow as quite fast. I like to be shown, gave a good and then move on


Linda King Jan 2022

Beginner's Guide to Crochet Workshop



Kate was fab. So patient, going back over each step when someone went wrong. Really enjoyed it. The extra half hour is just right. An hour and a half is long enough to concentrate on something new! I look forward to practising daily until my bunting is complete.


Gill Goldsmith Jan 2022

Beginner's Guide to Crochet Workshop



For me this wasn't a beginner's workshop. Although the tutor was patient and went over things several times I felt the project was too advanced. I needed more basic help on holding the hook and on making the basic stitches. It would have been better to do in person which is what I thought it would be when I booked.


Kay Coupland Jan 2022

Beginner's Guide to Brush Lettering



Very enthusiastic and friendly host. Explained and demonstrated the technique very well. Enjoyed the session and the kit means I can continue to practice. Thank you


Marilina Roxburgh Jan 2022

Floral Sketching Workshop



A lovely drawing class. This was a well planned lesson on how to sketch a flower and as a complete beginner I was amazed at how I was able to produce something that looked like a flower! The lesson gently took you through techniques that you could apply throughout the session. The instructor was very clear and confidence building. A really good session.

I really enjoy the class a lot. The letter template is great for practice. I wish there could be more example on words in the template.


Denise Ballheimer Jan 2022

Beginner's Guide to Brush Lettering



It is a great way of getting started. It is pacey, but the key is listening and doing the class and I will be taking it forward by practising the letters I had problems with. Then having a lot of fun with this new skill! Thank you Rugile,


Kerstin Hobbs Jan 2022

Daler Rowney Mixed Media Boho Art with Jenny Muncaster

Ximena Canter Jan 2022

Beginner's Guide to Brush Lettering



It was a really useful introduction to brush lettering - I felt it was useful to see the whole alphabet demonstrated.


Angela Harrod Jan 2022

Beginner's Guide to Brush Lettering



I did the brush lettering on ceramics at Xmas and struggled a bit with that, so that's the reason I did another workshop. This time I found it a lot better, how it was explained and enjoyed it.


Kate Memarnia Jan 2022

I loved this class. It gave me the confidence to layer patterns and designs I wouldn’t normally try. I loved trying the variety of items in the kit and hope to build my own designs with more knowledge of using different materials together.

The class was good fun and well presented. The materials included with the class are excellent.


Stephanie Inglis Jan 2022

Beginner's Guide to Fluid Art



Girl leading session was very good, lot of knowledge and explained everything as we went. Was great fun. We did pop and get straws on the 2nd piece to play around with it more. Great kit and workshop, great value for money and my niece loved receiving as her Xmas gift


Carolyn Sharrocks Jan 2022

Beginner's Guide to Crochet Workshop



The tutor was lovely - very patient and happy to repeat steps. However, as a complete beginner, the online format didn't work for me. I kept going wrong and really needed someone face to face to look at what I was doing.


Mary Smith Jan 2022

Daler Rowney Mixed Media Boho Art with Jenny Muncaster



What a fantastic hour I have just spent. Brilliant and lovely teacher explains everything very well. I will have many pleasurable hours now creating more art. I would highly recommend.

Heather Saranne Jan 2022

Excellent! Jenny explained each technique clearly and demonstrated how to do them. An hour wasn't long, but we still managed to each create an A4 piece of artwork. Highly recommended!

The host was so patient and obviously enjoyed what she was doing. Very useful and interesting.


Liz Cox Jan 2022

Daler Rowney Mixed Media Boho Art with Jenny Muncaster



Really enjoyed the session. Jenny Muncaster was great and explained everything brilliantly, then got us working along with her in a way that was both productive, enjoyable and fun. Will certainly do more.


Pauline Canniffe Jan 2022

One-to-one Cricut Workshop



What an amazing idea, Chrissie was lovely and it was great to be shown then have a practice of where I needed help - I would never have known or found out some of the tips that Chrissie was able to show me . I felt the session was very reasonably priced and will definitely be booking another one soon , thank you so much


Claire Orange Jan 2022

Beginner's Guide to Crochet Workshop



Such a difficult topic to teach over a zoom call. The artisan was very patient and went over everything as many times as people asked. For future attendees I’d recommend having a second crochet hook to practice doing the rings again if you have it right the first time - practice makes perfect! Right? Thank you so much for another enjoyable crafting session

Sophie Wild Jan 2022

Teacher was lovely and the craft box was beautifully packaged. Particularly enjoyed when the cat got involved!


Gill Allen Jan 2022

Beginner's Guide to Fluid Art



Fantastic. Easier than I thought. Love how it evolves and morphs. Better than I expected.


Eileen Black Jan 2022

One-to-one Cricut Workshop



Chrissie was very helpful. She knows the machine and all that it can do well. She made it all look very easy - will see once I start using it ha ha. Have a few things I need to get to get me started but hopefully get them all together over the next few days. There were a few delays between Chrissie doing it at her end and me seeing it but it wasn’t an issue. Would definitely recommend this to anyone who is new to cricut.


Jann Heigh Jan 2022

Daler Rowney Mixed Media Boho Art with Jenny Muncaster



The teacher was very friendly and helpful. We were only a class of two which helped me as I have a hearing impairment so was able to ask the odd question when I didn't hear properly. I think it would have been useful to have a sheet with some examples of the finished artwork for reference ongoing - to jog my memory and help me see where I may have been a bit heavy handed with the paint.


Claire Bower-Parker Jan 2022

Beginner's Guide to Brush Lettering



Disappointing. It’s just following a template. None of mine looked like hers. It’s just a nack that takes practice.


Chris Jackson Jan 2022

Daler Rowney Mixed Media Boho Art with Jenny Muncaster



Absolutely fantastic session! I think so far this session has been my favourite. ( not that the others were bad !) Jenny is very clear and calm in genuinely teaching the group. Hopefully there will be more sessions for people to be able to enjoy this mixed media painting and possibly more levels of the same things with new ideas in the future. Thanks Jenny and also the other lady ( & her soon to  + more

Marion Dockeray Jan 2022

Craft class



Unfortunately, my Mum and I (28 &58 years old) found this workshop utterly pointless. We were laughing so much in disbelief that it was £30 per person. If you want to watch someone draw dots or stars on a cracker with a pen, then this is the workshop for you! The person on camera didn’t even say goodbye when they finished, they merely closed the camera. I’m still in disbelief and only now discovered I can provide feedback! So disappointing


Louise Kelly Jan 2022

One-to-one Cricut Workshop



Chrissie was great. Was able to answer all my questions and gave me some great tips and advice. Highly recommended


Julia Sanders Jan 2022

Claire Brummitt-Brown Jan 2022

Beginner's Guide to Crochet Workshop



Quality materials and a lovely tutor but I could not get on with it. I found it hard to ask for help over zoom, especially with my hands full of wool and hook. The instructor did go over things repeatedly but in the end I just gave up and let the others get on with it as I couldn't even get started. I probably would have been better doing this face to face. Hasn't put me off trying other classes.


Charlotte Barrett Jan 2022

Craft class



Great short course, shame about the rather challenging other student - the course leader dealt with her admirably but perhaps the other member of staff should have offered to take her off separately so the rest of us could get on


Samantha Porter Jan 2022

Lovely friendly instructor, a really relaxing and enjoyable experience. Will definitely do another one soon!


Noopur Upadhyay Jan 2022

Rita Hutt Jan 2022

Punch Needle Plant Workshop



Enjoyed the course. It went very quickly. Tutor Jo was nice and very helpful. For anyone thinking of doing this course, you feel very awkward to start with but it does get easier as you go on. It would be good to practice on some scrap fabric. I shall keep trying to get better.


Lily Roberts Jan 2022

It was so much fun and the teacher was amazing- she explained everything very well and made it fun.

A great workshop exploring many different techniques and materials. Jenny was brilliant and managed to demonstrate such a lot in an hour. Thank you!


Jill Kinder Jan 2022

Beginner's Guide to Crochet Workshop



I struggled with this class. The teacher was very clear and did show us several times how to start the project. But I think this sort of tuition would be better face to face when the teacher can see what you are doing and provide one to one assistance. It was hard to watch what she did and make the loops at the same time. I was lost and could not catch up with her. I hope that I will be able to have another go and eventually finish the project


Chris Jackson Jan 2022

Floral Sketching Workshop



Excellent tutor friendly welcoming and helpful with the skills and knowledge that you need as a beginner. Its slightly difficult as the picture is a detailed photo and for a total beginner it might be helpful to have some kind of written guide to reference in the future re pencils and equipment plus an easier to see guide of the drawing maybe worth considering too. Hopefully what I have managed to do will be able to be finished In the coming weeks. Thanks again for a great evening.


Emily Bowen Jan 2022

Interesting class - great start to sketching - now to get the practice in! Roll on the summer and the flowers!

Kathryn Kinnear Jan 2022

Not convinced this was a beginners class. The instructor was great but I was lost after 30 mins and didn’t want to disrupt the group by asking to go back again, I’ll stick to YouTube videos!

The lady running the class was brilliant, so enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the craft, and able to answer a whole host of questions and make further recommendations.

Gillian Clarkson Jan 2022

I found it quite difficult to do being new to crochet . However, Kathryn was very patient and I managed to get to 8 rows of crochet within the time slot. Useful to have hobby craft videos to refer back to. I will persevere. Also good amounts of wool in the box . Thank you

Chrissie was amazing. She is so knowledgeable. We covered so much in the session including creating my own template and converting it to a JPG file and uploading it into cricut design space as well as adapting designs. She also taught me how some different tools on design space including contouring. A great session. Many thanks.


Carolynne Adam Jan 2022

Floral Sketching Workshop



Thank you I really enjoyed this workshop and learnt some new techniques that I cannot wait to try out again. The host was friendly and helpful. We were sent a photo of the flower that we were sketching, but there was also a sketch and it would be so helpful to have a copy of that. I would like it now so that I can try again. Thank you I shall definitely keep an eye out for future sketching workshops.


Liz Painter Jan 2022

Loved the class. It was a small group so the teacher was able to answer all our questions individually and make sure we were following what she was doing. I learnt loads of new techniques and would certainly recommend the class.


Ruth Parle Jan 2022

Floral Sketching Workshop



I thoroughly enjoyed the sketching session. Haven’t drawn much previously and thought I wasn’t doing very well until I held the drawing at arms length and was quite pleased with the end result. The timing of the session was just about right and the instructor very helpful and came over in a very encouraging manner.


Melanie Hedley Jan 2022

The instructor was good and guided us through using the pyrography tool well. She adapted the session to our level which was good and really supportive. It felt like there was too much to cover in the amount if time available, so we didn't even start work on the box. Having said this, I learnt lots and have continued to practise. I will complete my box by next Christmas!

A really great workshop. I bought a Cricut Joy after doing the online workshop for the Cricut Mug Press, with Chrissie. I now know a lot more about using Design Space and how to use my Cricut Joy. Chrissie is so helpful and friendly, she really makes the session enjoyable. I now have the confidence to use my machine and experiment with different materials.

The session was very good, Chrissie was very knowledgeable and passionate about it. I was disappointed the link didn’t work so I only started 15m later


Kate Bolsover Jan 2022

Craft class



The workshop was okay, but not sure it really needed a workshop! Once the instructor had told us how to set up the tool and shown us how to use it, then the rest of the session was just following along. Only really needed about 15 minutes and then we were good to go. I think I'd expected that there might be different techniques or something to justify the length of the workshop, but it really is just as straightforward as turn the tool on, wait for it to heat up, then mark the box.


Kate Bolsover Jan 2022

Craft class



Fun workshop with lots of different options. One of my small decorations was broken, but there were plenty of others. The workshop leader had lots of suggestions for extra things we could do like adding glitter to the roof of the house or painting the outside of the plastic baubles.

This was a Christmas present from my daughter. I am completely new to sewing. This lesson was amazing. The lady, Steph was very friendly and encouraging throughout the hour. She explained all the features of the machine, demonstrated threading the needle, went through some do's and don'ts and carried out some sewing techniques. Steph also introduced me to the hobbycraft website for useful tutorials and another useful resource. I am looking forward to trying out the basics we went through and hopefully will book another lesson in the New year  + more

Really good class! Got a sewing machine as a present a year ago, tried to teach myself and got no where - very difficult to teach yourself when you don't know basic bobbin loading/troubleshooting. This class will get you completely confident with setting up your machine and how it works. The Sewing Machine Test Drive templates they email are really helpful for practice too. I was only able to print them on paper before the class, but they are available printed on fabric from in store and apparently will be posted in later classes, but the class  + more

It went very fast as there was a lot to cover, and we got behind a little at the end, but it was great to have instructions and suggestions for as many things as possible in the two hours and she spent another hour afterwards trying out different things. It was a great birthday gift and she loved unwrapping all the things in the workshop box.

I absolutely love these Hobbycraft online classes! Emma did a great job this afternoon and I had so much fun creating my own hanging decos. The best thing about it is receiving the parcel before the class that contains absolutely everything you need to do the class plus extra for afterwards. Great way to find out if you like something or not. Brilliant concept.

1st time using the glue, cannot make the bottle firmly attached to the base. when holing the bottle in the air, all the content falling out, making a mess. maybe because if my action too slow, then the glue dry already. hope decorate with different materials and content, not just wood

This was an absolutely amazing course and Molly worked at a good pace. I have had amazing results. My kit was missing the flower pic which is annoying.

I logged on 10 minutes before the class started and the zoom just said “waiting for host to start meeting” for the full hour. Refreshing my screen and retrying the link didn’t work. I tried using the contact form twice and got no response. I’m hoping to take the class on another day or get a full refund however no one has responded.

It was a relaxing hour to craft with some clay. The artisan was enthusiastic about what he was showing and gave a few tips. The stars turned out cute and there is plenty of clay left for other projects. The included rolling pin was great and made it easy to level the clay quickly.

Lynn Lock Dec 2021

Wasn’t as good as some of the other classes I’ve taken a lot of time was spent tracing the stencil all Hobbycraft need to do is add in tracing or carbon to cut this done and not much wood burning. The member of staff didn’t explain well at all I had to ask basic questions and it was hard to do and very hot - your natural default is to want to hold the tool lower down where it’s hot. He didn’t have any proper answers to the questions and as a left handed person I asked for tips as crafting and art can be difficult but he didn’t really  + more

Patricia Irvine Dec 2021

Firstly - it's too short, it needs another hour added on. The class was marvelous and I like the way that instructions were given, nice and clear. I was sorry that not many people had their video cameras on - it's so sad that they are freighted of appearing 'on screen. Unfortunately, I missed about ten minutes at the start as my PC decided it was going to gain some new info - rotten thing. So the air was black and swear words appeared floating about. I'd love to have another go with a different theme and - one hour extra!


Sima Bodalikar Dec 2021

Trainer was nice. I had to rearrange my course a couple of times and they were super helpful and kInd. Would be a good class for a complete beginner but I’m quite crafty and didn’t learn anything new. Choose which box you want carefully as I didn’t like the contents of my box when it arrived - the figurines don’t match my Christmas decor. I suggest the organisers have a photo of contents next to each description list to avoid disappointment. Overall a good course for beginners and plenty of materials for the price paid.

Really enjoyed my workshop. I was unable to “make” as I went along as it seems there needs to be more practice using the tool. As I believe it was advertised that this was suitable for beginners I had assumed I would be able to leave with a finished/half finished product. I would be interested in attending a beginners guide for the tool instead. However the guide on this day was very good, explained everything she was doing in great detail and made sure everyone was happy with what was going on. I look forward to trying to decorate my own  + more

Some parts did few like they were going a bit fast. So I would probably suggest this class be extended to approx. 1hr 15mins / 1hr 30mins. Just so it doesn’t seem like the instructor has to take so quickly to get across the information.

We did finish later so this did make up the time lost.  + more

There was far too much to do in an hour. The teacher acknowledged that from the start but I've basically just been talked at at high speed for an hour and my head is spinning. I've got a couple of decorations I'm fairly happy with but it wasn't exactly a relaxing experience. If the time period and content are fixed then I think the teacher did everything she could to make it accessible but it was a very different experience to the nice chilled fluid art class I did yesterday.
