JSInteriorsUk will continue to run 1-2-1 and small group workshops throughout November while schools and colleges remain open as our workshops are educational. In line with government recommendations we would ask that workshop participants wear a face covering entering, moving around and leaving the house. Once at your work station and social distancing has been established you are welcome to remove your face covering if you wish. Should you or your family experience any COVID 19 symptoms within 2 weeks prior of your workshop do not worry, contact Jacqueline and your workshop will be rescheduled.

Residential retreats are postponed for the foreseeable future. These will resume once it is safe to do so. Please contact Jacqueline if you wish to be popped onto the mailing list for latest updates.

“I really enjoyed this course and thrilled with my lamp! I learned how to make a lamp with pleats at the top and gathers at the bottom. It has given my bedroom a lovely pop of colour and looks so unique. Jacquline is a great teacher, and she brings out the creative side in everyone! She is patient, personable, and fun to work with. I shall definitely sign up for more classes as I want to add some cushions to match. Don’t’ worry if you are a beginner (like I was) this course is for everyone!” Hannah Hennessy

“Just completed this course with Jacqueline in York and absolutely loved it! I will admit to feeling a little bit nervous before hand and not sure I would be able to do it! However Jacqueline put us completely at ease and talked us through the steps clearly and precisely so that I ended up with a beautiful handmade shade that I can’t wait to show off! The 2 days were broken down into easy stages and we all worked together having a giggle as we went along! I never thought I’d actually finish in time but I was wrong! Now can’t wait to do the tailored course – buzzing with ideas! Highly recommended.” Hazel Stevens
