What my guests say...
"Lauren offered plenty of advice and was very knowledgeable and experienced to tutor beginners through step by step clear instruction to make a really good quality bag. I didn't feel at all pressured and Lauren instilled confidence to not only complete the task of making a beautiful bag to keep but continue to use a sewing machine. Great value, very enjoyable. Many thanks for your hard work Lauren for a very well organised well equipped workshop."Lynda SmithWinterbourne, Bristol
Lauren has a very calm and supportive vibe and answers any questions with a great deal of patience. I did not feel rushed at all which was lovely. The materials she uses are also really high quality so it makes the finished product look so good! I’d wholeheartedly recommend Lauren’s workshops!Jo BloxhamFrampton Cotterall, Bristol
