What People Say About Artshed Arts

Angela Jarman

We’ve just attended a wet felting workshop with Helen Jacobs. It was great – the materials provided were ample and the time of the workshop was just right – enough to make some beautiful things, but not too long for our attention to fade. Helen was great – her demonstration of the technique was clear and easy to follow and her explanations showed the depth of her knowledge. Really enjoyable and I’d love to do another one.

Another lovely morning at the Art Shed, my daughter has taken part in many art and craft activities therd. Each time she has learnt a new skill she is keen to carry on at home and completes a beautiful piece of work because of the support and encouragement she is given by such a knowledgeable and friendly team.

We can’t wait till next time!

My daughter attended a bracelet making

party at the Artshed at the weekend and loved it! Well organised and fun, the girls loved creating their own jewellery inspired and guided by the friendly staff. Would highly recommend it.
