Excellent 6 days spent learning new skills and consolidating my previous experience. Tailor made courses with Moji being very accommodating to your needs as a student. Her style of teaching is really good and easy to understand with detailed demo and enough time to do it yourself. The studio is very well equipped making you feel as ease. All courses were more than I had expected and definitely great value for money."

Many thanks!"
"- Fay M - East Sussex, 2 day beginners upholstery workshop
I did the 2 day beginners upholstery workshop with Moji over the weekend as it is a hobby I have been wanting to cultivate for a long time. The one to one tuition format worked brilliantly as it allows you to be completely focused and not feel rushed, just totally immersed in the learning and doing. Doing 2 different styles of seat was great, stage by stage I learnt so much and had a fantastic feeling of satisfaction having used my hands to make something. Especially as its sustainable, making something new out of something old. Moji is fab. Not only she is obviously an experienced and knowledgable professional, but also warm and patient, thorough yet relaxed. A marvellous combination! I would absolutely recommend Moji and this course to anyone. “"
"- Sam H, Textile printing and lampshade making workshops
The course was more than what I had expected. Moji’s Style of teaching is brilliant and I found everything friendly and welcoming.The instructions were very easy to understand and I left knowing that I would be able to do what I had learnt easily again. Photos of each step taken during the workshops are sent by Moji afterwards and that I find very helpful as reference.Thank you for an amazing 2 days."

Wonderful hospitality with delicious food served every day."
