For this class you don't need to bring anything but yourself as everything is provided. However, if you have any ideas of what you would like to make, feel free to bring pictures, sketches or ideas and we will see what we can do!
As with all of our classes, all materials are included in the cost of the class as well as plenty of tea, coffee and luxury biscuits! The classes are all run by expert tutors with years of professional experience who are friendly, knowledgeable and approachable.
