feedback from workshop participants

On behalf of Gab & myself, I just wanted to say THANKYOU so much for the wonderful weekend we spent with you learning the art of creative doll making ! We had such a fabulous time & really enjoyed ourselves... and both of us loved acquiring our new 'wise woman' skills & will be sure to put them to good use! Please thank your wonderful 'assistant' Jim again for those yummy lunches & morning teas he prepared for us too! :)
I have been telling others at work of our workshop & many have told me how my face just lights up when describing the weekend :) ...Gab & I think you are the wisest woman of them all though! We will definately send you some photos of our finished creations when they are complete....(i was up until 2am last night sewing!)...and maybe we can even bring the wise woman/ 'she-man'! up for a visit sometime in the future.

Thank you so much for organising the eco dying workshop last weekend.  It was something that I had never done before and I must say was a wonderful experience to have something new and interesting that took me to another place for the weekend. 

 
Kind regards

What people say about us

I wanted to say  how lovely it was to meet you this morning, the shop and the website are so absolutely brilliant, congratulations on such beautiful work.

You have totally inspired me to keep on with my daily life and make some (long overdue) time for art in my life!

You have helped rekindle my passion for textiles, being in your shop really helped me feel that I am on the right path when I think of getting back into painting on fabrics.

Many thanks and all the best with your business,

Dear Anne, I usually go on to web sites with a sense of impatience and disinterest, really, and I notice that I just want to get the information I need and get off. So I surprised myself when I went on your web site yesterday and got completely absorbed. I spent ages looking at the products, even though I now know many of them and it felt like I was being invited, or rather enticed, deeper and deeper into an intriguing Aladdin’s cave of exquisite beauty. I experienced the same sense I have on walking into the gallery – kind of mesmerized by the sheer beauty and the ‘feel’ of everything. It is a very tactile place and I think it engages all the senses, and that is the same feeling on the web site. In the end I literally had to get off because someone was waiting for me to do something, but I could have just stayed there gazing. So, I guess I am writing this to say that whatever effort was required to create this phenomenon, and I know it was significant, it was definitely worth it. It is a resounding success.
