“Thank you so much for an amazing year at Cambridge Makers. I find it really hard to settle into places and groups and I feel really welcome, accepted and cared about. The quality of teaching, equipment and space is of a high quality, fit for purpose and is well worth the money. Everything is delivered in such a student/group focused way.”

“I love the cross over between the studio and the workshop. You have kept everything at a high standard but it isn’t intimidating in the slightest. ”
