Had so much fun for a hen do- made wonderful rings and bangles and the teacher (Emma) was amazing. Kept us all in check and was very kind. Larkswold is an amazing venue and thoroughly spoiled us. Would do it again x 1000.
Book it!

Teacher's response

Thanks Naomi - your Silversmithing tutor was the amazing Caroline, but I’ll take some credit as I hosted your session! Glad you enjoyed it - what a lovely group of friends. Hope to see you again sometime.

Excellent class, really knowledgeable and informative whilst being supportive and friendy. The class teacher managed the timeframe well, despite restrictions on noise for a time.

Sarah Campbell Feb 2024


I had a great class learning a new craft. I would love to do more Macrame with Larkswold such as plant pot holders etc (please add a slice of that delicious looking cake you had in the background to your kits!)

I'm hoping the photo does your kit and your teaching justice.

An excellent class which I absolutely loved- teachers and environment really friendly and warm and I learnt a lot in a beautiful surrounding. Cant recommend it enough!

Nichola Gibson Jan 2024


Fantastic review. Hosts were lovely- a constant supply of fresh tea and cake. The teacher was very knowledgeable, patient and friendly. We had all the equipment we needed and a great bunch of people to work with.
A wonderful day.

Lisa Walters Dec 2023


We have had a truly fantastic afternoon on the silversmithing course. Larkswold Creative Workshops are set up so perfectly in beautiful surroundings and is a crafters delight. Emma and Melinda were so welcoming and generous, and combined with Caroline's tuition, we spent a thoroughly relaxing and productive afternoon creating silver rings I would 100% recommend anyone attending a course with Larkswold, they have such a wide variety available there is bound to be something to spark an interest

Wow what a wonderful workshop, an absolutely stunning venue, with tea cake and a glass of prosecco,
Amazing tutor who showed us in detail how to work with silver, warm and friendly atmosphere and exceptional value for money, best of all I came home with a stunning bangle that is totally unique and individual. I can highly reccomend

Charlotte Winch Jun 2023

Booked for a Hen Party to make willow hearts to decorate the Brides Wedding Venue. Melinda & Emma we’re amazing, so helpful and friendly not only on the day but also leading up to it during the booking process. Would definitely recommend, thanks again.

Excellent class and a really well informed teacher. Provided lots of additional tips and tricks

Elizabeth Kelleher Oct 2022


Melinda & Emma were great hosts/teachers during our autumn wreath making session! The venue was set in the lovely countryside & there was just such a nice atmosphere. There was an array of materials which were available and nothing was too much trouble. Already looking at other classes they offer so we can book on again!

Thank you :)

Gail Harrison Aug 2022


What a beautiful place to have a workshop.
Melinda and family were great hosts and really friendly and welcoming. The lunch was tremendous with lots of refreshments and cake supplied.
Ben was a patient and attentive teacher and we learnt from scratch how to make a spoon. Thfe group was small which added to the great atmosphere. Unfortunately we didn't have time to finish the spoon before the end of the workshop, but I hope to add the finishing touches at home.
If you are not used to gripping an axe for long periods I recommend building up your grip before attending this workshop.
Overall a great day and hope to do another carving workshop un the future.

Lovely activity- quality of the materials was extremely good. Very impressed - my finished product probably does not disappoint it justice

Anne Decker Feb 2022


Caroline gave us a wealth of materials and ideas to work on. I enjoyed having a go at glass fusing, which I hadn’t tried before, and look forward to seeing what comes out of the kiln. Lovely cake & coffee too!

Ruth Ryan Feb 2022


We had a really lovely glass fusing session, which we all thoroughly enjoyed and were very well looked after by the hosts. We would recommend this session, the venue and the lovely cakes. A big thank you for making us so welcome, a great way to spend an afternoon and learn something new.

Sue Powers Feb 2022


Very flexible based on what the participants wanted to achieve. Knowledgeable and practical. A really enjoyable class.

Angela Waters Jan 2022

Floristry class review by Julie Cowell

Sally Mancell Nov 2021


Really enjoyed the Scented Candle Workshop at Larkswold. Emma was very welcoming and the marquee had a lovely ambiance and was warm and cosy. I learned all about the colours and fragrances and which ones mixed well together Also learned how to apply dried flowers and leaves to the inside of the glass before pouring the wax. I am inspired to make candles for my friends at Christmas and have ordered my wax, wicks and thermometer already! Delicious home baked cakes and coffee were included and I learned some of the history of the area. Would definitely recommend trying a class of any sort by the river at Larkswold !

Estelle Dyer Oct 2021


Wonderful ladies that run the courses, fabulous atmosphere, venue location is stunning! Loved our course, lovely to come away with what you have made and they are there to offer as much or as little assistance required. Cakes are divine too

Beautiful, relaxing day with 2 fab teachers. The venue was just what you would want for a perfect craft experience. Thanks

Lesley Strachan Jun 2021


Really enjoyable workshop. Had 1:1 teaching from Melinda as Inwas the only attendee. Practical hands on. Made a few ‘imperfections’ which Inwas shown how to correct. Thoroughly recommend.

Textiles class review by Lesley Strachan

Susan Cooper Apr 2021


A really lovely teacher and a quick and enjoyable class. Making your own beeswax cloths is more satisfying and cheaper than buying them, they make great presents and they help to reduce the use of plastic/cling film. All the details and kit I needed arrived in good time. It was a great birthday present from my son and daughter.

This was such a great workshop! Melinda was brilliant and walked us through the wreath making & made it easy, the tour of the garden and meeting the chickens was an added bonus! The kit arrived in time with all the bits needed - it was great fun and we're all very happy with our wreaths! Thank you for a great workshop x

Laura Waters Dec 2020


Really great class, and great foliage! Finished Wreath looks great
