At the end of each class we ask participants for feedback to find out things like why they attend, where they travel from (some have come from as far as London!), and if there's anything they'd change about the workshop. When we ask people what they got out of the day, we can see that attending Craft Sunday helps to:
Give a sense of purpose and achievement
Great to learn a new skill and go away with something.
Enjoyed being creative and using different medium than I'm used to.
Something different. Achievable for beginners, no experience required.
Was able to create something really beautiful to take home at the end of the day.
After a very clear explanation, I got the hang of it quickly and the more I did, the easier and more enjoyable it got. All in all, a fantastic experience.
Build connections with others
Nice day out with my friend and chance to learn another craft.
It has been great to do craft with others for a boost of motivation after so long doing things on my own.
The social aspect was lovely.
I came alone but that doesn't matter as you always get chatting to the people around you."
Really friendly atmosphere, fantastic demo and good help and advice on hand. Really enjoyed meeting new people too.
I hadn't tried anything like this before - always happy to learn a new skill.
Really liked being able to experiment with a craft without having to buy all the supplies and equipment upfront.
Great and confidence building!
Class was fun and relaxed, feel I learned something I would do again at home.
It was so much fun, having never done it before, the workshop gave me the confidence and knowledge to print my own tote bag which was amazing.
Take time out and be mindful
Enjoyed learning a new technique and found the weaving process quite relaxing.
Really therapeutic, a great way to relax and create.
The class was relaxing and well-supported
Lovely chilled afternoon.
Very good. Time passed very quickly - totally absorbing.
