"Emily's party was super, thank you.  She had a super fun time, and all the children were really engaged with the crafts and painting.  It was great fun and the time went very quickly. I was worried that painting the deer might be too challenging, but every child left with something they were happy about. 

I used to paint too- and it was so nice to have a brush in my hand again".

"I have just started the Thursday evening sewing classes with Angela and cannot recommend them enough. I am learning so much already and love reigniting my passion for sewing while having some time to myself. I also really love the Sunday morning sewing time (first of the month) to have 3 hours of uninterrupted sewing. Easy booking system too. Thank you Art Room team 😊"

"I've totally loved doing the cape workshop. Such a friendly, fun environment to learn how make this beautiful item in which I can change up every season. It was so much fun and I've also meet some pretty cool ladies through it too. Thanks for providing such a fantastic workshop!"

"Hi, I just wanted to tell you both how amazing what you have started is.  The girls are not the sporty type and aren't outgoing and trying to find them an out of school activity where they feel happy has been impossible - up till now.  They thrive in the amazing environment you have created and as a parent I feel so happy to leave them somewhere where I know the "fit" and feel happy.  They rave about what they have done and can't wait to go back - with other things we have tried its the opposite..  The vibe and space is just so calm and inviting.  Rosenda and Pip, you are the reason.

From the bottom of my heart - thank you"



"Thank you so much. Grace is always excited to go and do all the amazing things you have planned at Crafternoons.  You both have such a lovely manner with the kids and put so much time and effort into the classes!!"

We had my daughters 6th Birthday party at the Art Room and it was such a fun, magical party. For the unicorn theme Rosenda & Pip had three creative activities set up the kids could do poster art, canvas painting & unicorn wishing jars. Everything was set up perfectly & made the party run smoothly & easily. 

Rosenda & Pip with their bright personalities are fantastic with encouraging the kids to explore their creativeness & with glitter & sparkles thrown in what more could any little girl ask for.  

Thanks again ladies Paige & her wee friends had such a fun time.

"Hi Rosenda and Pip,  I just wanted to say a huge thank you for offering Izzy this holiday programme to stretch her artist wings.  Izzy previously resented going to other holiday programmes, but this was the exact opposite each morning she was full of excitement and anticipation at what wonderful activities lay ahead that day.  She enjoyed the day so much she didn't want to leave early on the last day.  I think this says a lot about you two as teachers, the wonderful imaginations you have and the amazing space you provide for these children".

"Hi lovely ladies.  I just wanted to thank you both for giving my kids an awesome day.  This has been my happiest pick up all term and Sam has a total feeling of achievement about him tonight and I am so thankful for that.  It really goes to show the effect of the calm environment and some calm words goes such along way for him. Thank you from the bottom of my heart xx".

"Dear Rosenda and Pip

Thank you so much for hosting us this afternoon/evening. I loved it.  You two made us so welcome and provided fun activities for us.  I’m sure you’re this nice to everyone, no wonder the Art Room is such a popular place".
