We really enjoyed our punch needle workshop with Duygu! She was a great teacher - friendly, patient, encouraging. We had never done this craft before but created a small cute item and are keen to get going with our own punch needle projects. All materials were provided and we took home everything we needed to continue. The venue is in a great location at London Bridge and we received clear directions by email.

This workshop was absolutely great! All materials were provided, and we were even given some extra wool of specific colours if we needed them to finish our project at home. Duygu was a great teacher and made it very easy to follow along, so a perfect class for beginners.

Duygu is a great instructor. She explained everything clearly. She gave all the information I need to keep doing punch needle by myself. I’m so happy to learn this new hobby and glad to chose Duygu to learn from.

Duygu was an amazing teacher and I learnt so much within just a couple of hours. She supplied all the materials and was great at answering all of our questions.

Susan Childs Oct 2023

had so much fun! All of the materials needed were included and we got to take it all home. Duygu was a lovely teacher - so patient and really interested in everyone and what we were doing. it was an amazing studio space right next to the water. It was a little tricky finding the venue though. Once Duygu sends the directions I would look for the postcode of the pub next door and remember that the entrance is on the back of the building not the riverside.

Can't recommend this class enough - 3 hours went in the blink of an eye. Treat yourself and have a go, we loved it.

Duygo was such a passionate, thoughtful and talented teacher. She was very patient and encouraging!

The materials worked perfectly and was very easy to use. I’m surprised how quickly I was able to pick it up and how easy it is to get started. Soo many projects can grow from learning the basics taught in this class.

Definitely good value for money.

Overall it was a wonderful night and experience. Thank you Duygo for sharing your gifts with us.
