"I loved the clay factory, how you got us working in the little groups mark making in the beginning. It was good to experiment freely. "

"For someone who hasn't participated in a creative workshop before, it was the perfect ice breaker that I needed."

"I really enjoyed the whole experience. It was a lovely bunch of people and you made me and I’m sure everyone else feel so welcome."

"Thanks for creating the most inclusive and welcoming day. That's no mean feat. I am still so delighted that I was able to join."

"It was not something I had done before and struggled with my imagination to start with. It soon became fun and experimental."

"Jamila held the group so well and made sure everyone felt comfortable and cared for, particularly on the steep walk to the beacon. Her friendly down to earth approach to teaching and encouragement really helped me feel relaxed and that experimenting with whatever landed on my paper was a way to opening up to my creativity."

"Thank you so much for a great workshop. How lucky were we to have the sun shine, it was a beautiful walk to the beacon, loved it! "

" It really was just what I needed!"

"I had a lovely time last Saturday. Thank you sooo much for the relaxed vibe and organisation of the day."

"I enjoyed the short mindfulness meditation, to ground myself, feel my breath and enjoy the beautiful sun on my face."

"As a mother, I felt that the day was a very welcome space away from my family, to give time back to myself, replenish my energy and find value and creativity in myself as an individual. "

"I enjoyed the meditation and mark making on the moor. I liked how you got us thinking about the clouds then sketching. The way you led us to draw by concentrating on capturing colour, then elements, roads, trees etc was brilliant."

"I have just had the most wonderful day - Thankyou 

Especially the walk/views and the creativity art in the afternoon."

"I learnt that lockdown has impacted my self love and yesterday has started a journey to discover myself again."

"It was a lovely day and I think you did a brill job organizing, communicating, inspiring, and bringing everyone together in a very gentle way. I felt comfortable and enjoyed the company. Lunch was perfect."

"Lunch was delicious, lovely to share with people that I hadn't met before. I always find coming together with strangers a bit nerve wracking but then I can find the experience really opens me up, makes me feel a sense of belonging, knowing I share so many similar emotions with others. "

"It was fun, relaxed, interesting, healthy and creative with gentle company and yummy food! Definitely a great experience!"

"Please pass on to the chefs that my food was extremely tasty and loved the Rhubarb cordial and the curry."

" Fab food and perfectly organised."

"It was absolutely amazing , relaxing and rejuvenating , inspiring and so much fun . Met great people and shared experiences , laughter and lots of paint ! Will definitely try your art methods again with oil and cold wax.. thank you so much ."

"Loved it - very inspiring , really well run and such fun Thank you!"

"It was such a good day! Thank you for organising."

"This day is extremely good value and has introduced me to The clay Factory, I will return and tell others."

" I will definitely come again."

"Please keep up this amazing work."
