Maria was so patient and really helped us learn the basics. Had a wonderful time and really recommend it. Maria was lovely and nothing phased her

Dawn May 2024


Maria was brilliant - so kind, patient and encouraging with my daughter and clearly passionate about crochet which what’s rubbed off and given my daughter some fresh enthusiasm for her new hobby! We will be back when we get stuck again.

Audrey Harris May 2024


The lesson was good value for money. I learned all that I needed to know to be able to use my machine. The teacher was patient and helpful.

One-to-one crochet, lovely teacher The class was good value and nice to come away with two balls of wool and crochet hook to start a little project.
Only problem was I found it difficult to get onto the class through the app.

Monika Bordier Apr 2024


The class itself was great, excellent value for money. The teacher very polite and welcoming. The girls had a great time and got to keep their notepad and brush pens together with a hobby craft tote bag. Unfortunately the booking system is a complete letdown and it just spoils the whole experience. That is something they need to work on, apart from that I am happy to recommend it.

Zuzana Mikulova Apr 2024


Our artisan Suzanne was amazing. She explained everything and encouraged the kids yo be creative. Would definitely recommend and we will be coming again.

Excellet teachers explained things just right for beginners. Enjoyed time so much and will recommend.

Nicola Apr 2024


Magdalena was a great teacher. She delivered the class in bite size pieces so that we could practice each stage until we had got the hang of it. I will definitely be booking another class once i have practiced and mastered the basics.

Julie Armstrong Apr 2024


What a really lovely and useful hour I had with my tutor at your Coventry store on Saturday.
I learned so much about using my new sewing machine, as well as other tips and hints for successful sewing projects, I felt that the time and money were really well spent.
I’m now excited to get going and produce new garments. Thank you so much.

Lesley Hooper Apr 2024

Easter bonnet class was wonderful. Kim the teacher made everythibg seem so easy and my daughter loved it.

Plenty of everything to stick on the bonnet which made it was really good value for money.

I would do other classes there now.

Syreeta Banwait Mar 2024


A really enjoyable workshop for young kids, our 10 year and adult helpers alike. Loads to choose from, so all the Easter bonnets looked different. Great value for money. Having the hour meant that this workshop wasn’t rushed.

Sandra Peacock Mar 2024


Really enjoyed this class. Total beginner at crochet and had no idea where to start to learn but this class was exactly what I needed and I've gone away feeling confident enough to try a simple pattern. Only negative was how quick the time flew as I could've carried on for a lot longer.

Bernadette Anne Moss Mar 2024


The teacher was fabulous and had endless patience. She really gave me the confidence I needed to complete my project.

Sofhina Feb 2024


Jay was so unbelievably friendly & knowledgeable. I’m a complete newbie to sewing and she was so patient with all of my silly questions and she’s just full of golden nuggets of tips and tricks. As soon as I start to practice what she’s taught me I will be booking in again for a dress making session! Well worth the time and money!

Adebisi Evuarherhe Feb 2024


Very interactive class. Teacher Magdalena went over and above to teach the class. She was very attentive to each student's needs. The crocheting material were good value for money. Enjoyed every minute of the 90 minutes spent and learnt to crochet as a beginner.

Lovely lady ran the session, my 6yr granddaughter loved it. We will return

Kimberley Goadsby Feb 2024


Did a 121 sewing class. I am a complete novice with a sewing macine so lady talked me through the set up for my new machine and helped work out what the problems that I was having might be. We then did some macine practice and why you would pick different stitches etc.
Lady was lovely, and informative and the practice accessories were good. I would definitely book in again.

Jackie Mitchell Jan 2024


Magdalena was so friendly and helpful in our beginners crochet class . She was so patient and knowledgeable I will do some practice at home and book another one to one session in the near future.

Sue Martin Dec 2023


Took my two eldest Granddaughters (age 5 & 3) to the Christmas card making workshop. They really enjoyed themselves. They made 4 cards each using glue, paint, pipe cleaners and felt bobbles. Instructor was very good. They both had a really nice time.

Emma Jones Dec 2023


Teacher was great and very patient and encouraging. I would definitely recommend to other people

Pamela Boswell Dec 2023


Our tutor, Magdalena was fabulous, very clear and spent time with each of us making sure we didn't get lost in the exercise. Definitely made everything make sense now. Wool was lovely and particularly liked the shades chosen for us. Room was perfect for our small group. Staff on arrival in store were very helpful in pointing me in the right direction for classroom. Feel much more confident to practice this skill now. Will definitely be vack for more advanced lessons

Pretty good. The card ideas were excellent and my two girl did enjoy it. Our host was brilliant and engaging. The only issue was the glue just wouldn’t stick down the pipe cleaners. We had to use stronger glue at home. But we are pleased with the cards.

Linda Wilson Nov 2023


I attended this class at my local Hobbycraft in Coventry.
There were only 2 of us at the class and our tutor was very patient and helpful.I found the class hard as it was quite strenuous on the hands but I produced something I'm happy to display at Xmas.Good value for money as there was a lot of materials provided.

The workshop was so much fun. The kids had a fantastic time and the teacher was really engaging! She provided the children with some great ideas on how to make their pumpkins scary and unique. Highly recommended and great value for money.

Craig Allen Oct 2023


Teacher was friendly, venue was a basic store room. Would have liked something a little longer, but the models we took away were good and the kids enjoyed themselves.

Terri Livingstone Oct 2023

Staff were very friendly. Would have been nice if the children could have chosen a pumpkin from the shop and maybe some more choice of tissue paper colours displayed.

The teacher was friendly and seemed to enjoy the crafts herself which made it an enjoyable experience

Karen Smith Oct 2023


Firstly the lady didn't know I was attending. The shop tablet wasn't charged so she had to use her phone. So u couldn't see what she was doing. She wasn't able to help with print & cut. We kept getting disturbed by shoppers as we are on the shopfloor, which I think needs to be changed. I didn't get anything out the hour session tbh because of the above. Not worth £20. Lady was lovely though and showed me her projects. But couldn't really help for what I required

Angela Gardham Oct 2023


I really enjoyed the session. It felt very relaxed and supportive. The teacher explained the process slowly and in a way we could all follow with individual help at all stages. It's given me the motivation to continue practicing crochet.

It was lovely and lots of help with any questions. Recommended anyone to go to.

Jean Sep 2023


I'm not the recipient because it was a gift for my daughter. However, I was disappointed that fresh foliage was not provided when I saw the wreath. It was however lovely. I have forwarded this to my daughter so hope she will give you an assessment.

Lorraine Sep 2023


I wanted to learn the basics of my sewing machine as a complete beginner and the tutor was excellent, far exceeded my expectations, she was patient, explained everything easily and clearly and I came away feeling far more confident then when I went in!
The sessions can cover whatever you want and I know I will be going back for more sessions as I continue learning! Tutor is such an asset to Hobbycraft as so knowledgeable about Sewing. I would recommend to anyone.

Wendy Quinney Sep 2023


Very helpful and informative session, great tips on how to get the best out of my sewing machine, zips, button holes and my next project

A good session, appropriate for age range. Teacher was very pleasant and encouraging. Good area to work.

Heather Mills Aug 2023


Susana was a lovely teacher and the activity was fun, my 7 yr old enjoyed it.

Becky Rowley Aug 2023


Toni was brilliant and the workshop was well worth the money. It’s a bit frustrating having it on the shop floor, especially on a Saturday morning- I think there were at least 5 interruptions by other customers with queries. They were handled quickly but could have been avoided by having a more private space.
The store had acknowledged what I’d asked for in my request (help with card making) and prepared for this with examples, but most of the session was spent going through my various questions and niggles with the machine, which was just what I needed! Once I’ve got to grip with these things I’ll be back for more.

Nancy Kay Aug 2023


Great informative class, very nice teacher - worth the money Thank you I can now crochet!

Alison Lowe Aug 2023


Teacher was very helpful and explained things very well . She let us have a go but was there to help and support . I came away far more condident and came home to do more to consolidate what I had learned. So much better than You Tube !

I would recommend this course, well worth the money.

A really worthwhile course.

Sarah Fahad Jun 2023


We had great fun at hobby craft doing the hama bead craft. My kids were doing this for the first time. They enjoyed it a lot and excited to see their result!
The teacher was very friendly and helpful. Kids even got a free kit to play more at home! Brought back both happy kids of mine, so I’m satisfied! Good value for money. Will be coming again for more different activities.

I went today as a complete beginner and feel I have learnt so much. No question was too small to ask and the person teaching me had so much patience (sorry ive forgot name) - and so much knowledge I will certainly be going back for more classes. Thankyou so much

Frazier Dalton Feb 2023


The teacher, Suzana, was waiting by the door as soon as we arrived and we followed her straight to the craft room, this was great as no waiting around with impatient children. All materials were laid out ready and we started promptly. Suzana explained well throughout and demonstrated everything to my 6 year old son going at his pace and always ensuring he was happy with his craft. My son mentioned he would like his pot to be a jewellery pot so Suzana showed him how to make a lid for it, he was very happy with his end creation. In the hour session we made 2 different style pots and a lid. I asked my son if there was anything he would change and he said yes, It should be on every day! Amazing experience for the price we paid and we will definitely be returning, sooner than I’d anticipated apparently!

My only negative is the poor quality of wool used, it quickly frayed. A follow on course would be great - Come on Hobbycraft more classes please! :-)

Sally Hughes Jan 2023


I really enjoyed the beginning crochet course at Coventry the teacher was excellent
The box with the wool etc was a good idea.

Joan Archer Jan 2023


The main problem was the room was far too cold therefore I wouldn’t recommend anyone to attend your workshop. The lady teaching me was lovely and very helpful. But you really need to put some heating in

Annette Dobbins Jan 2023


I enjoyed the workshop and the teacher was very helpful. I have actually managed to do some crocheting on my own for the first time. I was also impressed with the material provided.

The only negative was the timing of the class. Because the shop didn't open until 9.00 we didn't start the class until later. I would suggest a 9.30 start in future.

Jayne Lloyd Jan 2023


Great teacher. Friendly and helpful. Helped me confirm the machine was faulty and not me.

Extremely grateful x

Eve Flude Jan 2023


Magdalena was patient and lovely and made sure to tailor her guidance to each of our specific skill sets. It was really nice to have a private room, and the hook and wool we were provided with were great. Thank you so much Magdalena <3

Quiet private room to work in with materials included which was great.
I learned to hide my ends on a blanket I am making, very impressed.
For a first time hiding pink yarn ends, was pleased with how it looked. Great value for money…. Will be booking my 3rd, possibly a one to one workshop in the near future.

Booked this as a private workshop for my daughters 8th birthday with friends. They all had a great time although found parts of it a little tricky. Most were age 7/8 but I’d probably recommend 8+ unless parents are on hand to help. We only managed to make one in the time we had when it should have been 2 so we were given packs to take home. The class is good value for money. The room it was held in was very cluttered with lots of boxes scattered around the room which was a bit of a pain but can’t be helped. Would’ve been a safety issue for younger children though. Thank you for helping us celebrate our daughters birthday, she enjoyed making her key ring.

Today we had a fab experience making Christmas wreaths with Suzanna. She had patience and explained herself really well, great value for money, not only did we get our wreaths, but got to keep the glue gun and all the decorations we didn't use, great way to spend a couple of hours.

Christine Seager Dec 2022

Teacher, June good
Venue appropriate
Materials - white wreath kept having the white ‘bits’ come off over everything - but messy
Very enjoyable
Value for money good at £26 but it would have been expensive at full price

An enjoyable afternoon with a lovely wreath at the end of the class. Suzanna was an excellent teacher and I learnt a lot (never having done this before). The range of foliage available was varied. I liked being able to keep the wire and cutters so I can experiment again at a later date. I would definitely do another course at Hobbycraft and thought it was good value for money.

Emma Bedford Nov 2022


Had a lovely time at the traditional wreath workshop. Good size wreath with decorations, easy to follow instructions from teacher who was also on hand to help if required.

Julie Adshead Nov 2022


I attended the rattan wreath making workshop with my mum who loves anything crafty. We both had a great time. The teacher was lovely, she gave us lots of ideas and tips, and it was great that she made the wreath alongside us so we could see how it could look. The room and resources were fab, it was nice to see things from other workshops around us which has inspired us to book onto more - the teacher was also clearly very knowledgeable about the different workshops and techniques offered by Hobbycraft and was able to give us more info about these. We couldn’t believe it when our time was up, we’d had such a fun time, the evening passed too quickly! We both love our wreaths and can’t wait to display them.

Lesson used one of the machines from display most like mine, so take a picture of yours to help with select. I needed full refresher so we went through all the basics at my pace, included handy tips for my mobility issues too. Discussed types needles and threads for materials, when to use which stitch pattern and what to try for common problems. Tutor made me feel really relaxed and able to ask any questions I may have. Will happily go back once I have more practise and want to move on to next level and have questions re that.

The teacher was very good and interacting. Location was accessible. No charge for parking. Took my son for the papermashe pumpkin making.

Materials were plentiful . Was allowed to take some paper home to complete the art piece

My 5 year old lost interest after about 30min sadly. Still got a great piece of ‘little hands art’ so very pleased

Really helpful session. Practiced on a sample machine identical to the one I purchased. Talked me through every step of set up, plus answered questions I had. Able to do some practice sessions and had advise on how to improve etc. Well worth the money. I also had the bonus of being taught by someone that was really personable.

Kirti Mistry Oct 2022


Originally when I booked it said one space available but when I got there there it was only me so was a good one to one session. Teacher was fab and patient. Gives own personal experiences so made me feel comfortable.
Room was ok.
Only small downside it the practice material, it was too thin.

Staff were very friendly and happy throughout. Plenty of time allowed to complete project. Maybe need to consider raising the age as at 3 they would find it hard to do the masking on their own and they also don’t always have the patience to wait between colours so they all mix togeather

The workshop was fantastic as it catered for my 4 year old and 7 year old at the same time. Everything is provided in the price which again I thought was not too expensive. The teacher was very helpful and let the children go at their own pace and with their own imagination which only little guidance if needed! Would recommend to a friend and do again

i brought my five year old grandson to the Mache Animal Workshop. it takes place in an upstairs area well away from the shop doors. Angus was very quiet but said that he'd had a lovely time. Jay was very patient and encouraging with him. He was chuffed that his was completely finished at the end of the hour. Do buy the recommended products if you need to finish off at home. The glue dries to a lovely varnish-like shine. Chris Payne.

J was brilliant she was really good with the kids and also spent time with us after the class walking around the store looking for craft activities we can enjoy over the summer.

The store was not expecting us so the class did not start on time and I felt we were winding up before the hour was done so better planning to enable a full hour of craft would be appreciated.

Overall the kids were happy and so was I. I will definitely book more workshops over the summer.
