Amazing workshops! I learnt so much and really enjoyed the day, Lou and Ryan are so welcoming and supportive. I was really proud of what I achieved, with very little artistic talent! Food and setting was also lovely. :)
For an amateur papercutter who lost the creative mojo some time last year, I had high hopes for this course and i wasn't disappointed. Louise and Ryan guided us through creating our own templates, offering supportive advice and handy tips along the way. Who knew we would be able to produce something that looked almost professional! The mojo re-emerged, the creative brain got going and I came away with a handful of my own designs that I was very happy with. Add to that a fabulous group of fellow cutters, glorious surroundings and a delicious lunch and you've got yourself a perfect day. The only disappointment with this workshop is that it was only one day and over too soon.
This is the most amazing day, meeting likeminded people and enjoying the company and talents of Louise and Ryan! Even if you worry that you can’t design, they will show you how
Had the most amazing day with like minded people! Lou and Ryan are really patient with showing you how to progress from papercutting to designing your own templates! Fab day out!
Although I had attended a workshop before, I was a little nervous about this one as I had heard we had to draw our own template. I was scared, as I couldn’t draw. Or so I thought!! I couldn’t believe what I was able to do with a little encouragement from Louise! I felt so pleased with myself and have gone on to design a few other templates too. So, for anyone who thinks they can’t draw. You can! It was a lovely location with gorgeous chips and sandwiches for lunch too. Thank you Lou and Ryan. X
I went on a workshop this weekend (my second one) and I can honestly say I've had THE BEST TIME EVER!! Louise and Ryan were sooooo lovely and the venue is gorgeous! They taught us soooo much, not least helping us all let go and jump right out of our comfort zone and get stuck right in to designing our own templates. I honestly thought I couldn't draw (at all!) and this was the main thing I was really anxious about as was worried I was wasting everyone's time (but was happy to go to see Lou again, have another squish, meet some lovely people, cut some paper and buy some Panda goodies!!) But surrounded by a wonderful group of like minded people and the expert guidance of Lou and Ryan I have produced not one, not two, but FOUR actual templates! And I'm so happy with them and have left feeling stupidly chuffed with my little self!! So if you're wondering whether to go on one.....DO IT!!! DO IT NOW!!! You won't regret it for a second! x
Had the best day with awesome people! Was made to feel so welcome by Lou & Ryan. I haven't drawn anything in many many years and was pleasantly suprised that I could design 3 of my own cuts! I have drawn another 2 templates since I've gotten home as I can't wait to get stuck in! The venue and food were great :)
