WORKSHOPS & EVALUATIONS

Workshops

All materials and equipment are included in the costs , so all participants need to do is turn up.  I keep group sizes small (max of 6) to enable more one-to-one support where needed.  

It is important that we can review the sessions that we deliver and whether good or ‘constructive’ we use the feedback to enable Feed My Creative to grow. We  maintain a relaxed environment so that users are happy throughout their making experience.

Have to say so far so good…

Sessions last for a minimum of two hours and up to a maximum of four hours.  
All participants will go home with an item that they have made (sometimes two).  
Fabrics we have used have ranged from chair covers, quilt covers and even roller blinds... the possibilities are endless.

Over a period of four weeks I delivered a two hour session teaching women how to make tote bags, make up bags, cushion covers and aprons. One even recovered a seat for her chair.  

“Janet had spent care and time finding the resources.

“Janet was really patient and helpful, I was a complete beginner and Janet was really

encouraging. Her mum helped too!”

“Wonderful I have really enjoyed myself, thank you Janet.”

“Excellent tuition and helpful staff.”

"Sessions are very much needed at St Johns. Excellent resources, Tutors very pleasant indeed"

I spent the afternoon with these wonderful ladies teaching them how to make reversible bags using just recycled materials. I also left some fabric to enable them to practice and make more for themselves.

Working with the Green Community teaching students how to live and be more sustainable.  It rained (a lot) but it did not stop many students visiting the tent and having a go.  Some students had only just arrived that day and made quite a few cushions to go in their rooms.

For six weeks I delivered two hour workshops working with residents of YMCA Erdington, Birmingham. They learnt how to use a sewing machine and made items such as cushions, bags and teddy bears. Plans are being made to continue providing a service for residents and the community in early 2017.

"Tutor was vey patient and helpful. Great environment. Plenty of fabrics to choose from Janet was VERY helpful. Have thoroughly enjoyed this first session, looking forward to the next one. Thank you very much Janet."

"Lovely lady made us feel welcome."

"Location isn't great. Good equipment to make stuff with."

"Very helpful lady should pay her for her hard work"

"Need more space to work around, need another place"

"Janet is wonderful"

"Happy to carry on in with more sessions soon"
