Anyone who even has half a thought that they might go to one of Faye's Copic workshops should definitely sign up! I promise you will not be disappointed. Faye is a brilliant and patient tutor and takes enormous pride in equipping everyone with the right tools and skills to colour successfully with Copics.

Honestly - Faye is a marvel, she plans the sessions carefully and thoroughly to make sure you get the best from them.

I would nt hesitate to recommend the classes - I started my Copic adventure with Faye in 2015 and I completed my Copic Certification under her tutorage in 2016 - it has been worth every mile and every penny!

Big thank you Faye my lovely friend.

Sending love and best wishes for a very successful teaching future for you - I will continue to support you and tell the world how fabulous you are...xxx <3 <3 <3

Whether you are new to Copics or pretty experienced in using them I highly recommend Faye's courses. I love colouring and felt my colouring was good but not in Faye's league. I wanted to improve my skills and had been longing for Faye to come to Norfolk so I could attend her classes. I learnt so much. Faye is so well organised with her classes, so patient and encouraging. When someobody said they had coloured something and it was rubbish she didin't accept that and showed them how to improve it. She explains everything so well and makes it such fun to learn. I did Copic one and two, skin, hair and fold classes and was so glad I signed up for all of them. I can't wait to do three and four now. I have coloured some images since I did the classes at the weekend and can see such an improvement already. If you are debating whether or not to do them, then stop debating and sign up. You will love it and will learn so much. Worth every penny. After all Copics are a serious investment so attending the classes will improve your skills so much and make you love colouring even more.

Thank you so much Faye xx

I was on the same course as Marianne, in fact I think I was the one who said my colouring was rubbish!
I had never used Copics, but prior to the course Faye made me some colour charts for the pens we would be using, so I could match the colours with
my Promarkers. Just a small example of how much thought and effort goes into her classes to make sure everyone gets the most they can from them.
I class myself as a person with 'average' colouring skills but her patience and encouragement made me want to, not only improve them but also aspire to be a fraction as good as she is.
Apart from Faye costing me a fortune (because I have now had to purchase Copic pens, paper etc) she has been such an inspiration to me.
I can honestly say the course was worth every penny and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to learn to improve their colouring.

As an absolute Copic beginner I was a bit nervous about doing Fayes class but it was amazing, I would thoroughly recommend it! Faye explains techniques with patience (even if you have to ask for a 3rd time), and is very encouraging. I now feel much more confident and can't wait for Copic 2! Though I will definitely agree with Chrissies comment, I am getting carried away buying copics (and the stamps to colour in), it's addictive!! Thank you so much Faye!x

Wendy Johnson said...

I was a beginner too when I took a one to one class with Faye. I was a bit apprehensive as I thought I was rubbish at colouring but like the ladies above have said, I needn't have worried at all as Faye mmediately makes you feel welcome and at ease and pitched the class at my level and ability. She is extremely talented and very encouraging and I learned such a lot. When I left, I immediately wanted to go out and buy a gazillion copic markers as I felt so inspired!! Thank you Faye and as Arnie said..... 'I'll be back'!!!

Helen Haines said...

Faye is a fabulous and patient teacher. Whether you've done copic classes before or you are a complete beginner there is something for all levels. Great techniques, good fun and smashing biscuits. Don't hesitate sign up for a class you won't be disappointed. xx

Hazel Parr said...

So I've now completed copic 1, 2 and 3 as well as the skin, hair and folds classes. Whatever your skill level you'll learn heaps with Faye. I'm OK on animals but people were a subject I avoided especially if there were folds in clothes. I'm now comfortable at folds and would now be happy at tackling all those stamps I've avoided for years now. Also there's cakes and quite often a pop up shop from dies to die for so what's not to love?
Big hugs

If you're thinking about learning more about colouring with Copics, don't be nervous, just go for it - I can recommend Faye - my daughter and I attended the Stage 1 Class near Leeds at the weekend, and learned such a lot. Faye is a very patient, very funny, and very talented teacher - the various segments of the course were very structured, Faye demonstrated each stage beautifully - she is the type of teacher who is actually teaching you loads while you have a good laugh and a great time - and it was a pleasure to sit with the other ladies on the course - everyone had a good day. When we wern't laughing, or scoffing the regular tea and yummy biscuits/cake/choccies, you could have heard a pin drop as we all concentrated on our colouring :-) We are looking forward to attending the next stage of our colouring journey. Thank you Faye!! Mary Gourley

Andrea Norris said...

Fab course content with a patient, funny and lovely tutor. Demonstrations of how to do each stage of the colouring techniques followed up by one to one advice. The classes are small enough to be comfortable and lively with like minded people. I can only say a perfect day. Looking forward to the next class and hopefully bumping into some of the lovely people I met on the course.
Thank you Faye <3

Attended the afternoon session on the 23rd of September at Bailiff Bridge, it was a really great afternoon and Faye is so very talented but not a DIVa, down to earth and very talented. She has the patience of a Saint and a great sense of humour. I am rubbish at colouring and to be honest prefer Pro Markers to Copics, but she didn't hold that against me, and was extremely helpful and kind. Great sense of humours and a very, very enjoyable afternoon. If you have doubts about attending one of her classes then, forget them as I am sure you will regret it if you don't join in.
I would not hesitate to go on another of her classes. Great group of people too.
The Dies to Die For shop was just amaizing.
Really lovely, talented Lady.

Thank you Faye for a wonderful class, I have learn't so much! Your teaching style is so informative and to watch you colour while you explain how to shade and give texture to images is mesmerising. I started off so afraid to lay down lots of colour and I ran a mile from using dark shades :) but your encouragement has given me so much confidence in using my Copic markers. I just can't wait now for level 4! I just need to practice, practice, practice now :)

Deborah said...

Wow! What a truly lovely day yesterday :-) I have been playing with Copics for a couple of years but I learnt so much yetserday doing the Copic One workshop and the 3 additional classes in the afternoon. Faye is so encouraging, warm, friendly and funny - and not forgetting an amazing colourist! I loved the demos but the one to one advice was brilliant so thank you for inspiring me to colour again. Thank you to the team for the seemingly endless coffee, cakes and choccies - very much appreciated. Thank you also to Tracey and the Dies to Die for shop - tho please could you ask Andy to mumble the totals in future - I fear the bank manager may have heard! A brilliant day Thank you all again. Now - Is it March yet?

Linda said...

I love Faye's fun approach to colouring, so much that I've just attended my third session and booking the forth!
Faye takes the time to make sure everyone understands the techniques being shown and helps everyone individually to achieve the best results!
Love ya Faye ❤️❤️❤️❤️

Claire said...

What a fabulous way to spend a Saturday. I wasn't sure what to expect having attended a few crafty classes in my time but this suppassed everything I'd hoped for. Faye is a teriffic instructor and has a wonderful sense of humour to boot. The whole crew made our day just perfect with such lovely attention to detail and I've come away with a whole new confidence in my colouring ability. Can't wait for the next class.

Janine said...

I have been making cards for quite some time and have always enjoyed using colour. Copics have been addictive and with Faye's fun teaching style I am getting to learn more about using them. Decided to start the Copic Official series and attended Copic 1 at the weekend. Really helps you remember the basics and learn new tricks too. Thoroughly enjoyed it and hoping to get onto Copic 2 in March

Pami said...

I have attended several of Faye's copic classes now and I can't recommend them enough. Faye is so knowledgable and passionate about what she does that you can't help coming away from one of her classes completely inspired! You will learn so much, which will advance you on your copic journey so much. The classes are fun, inspirational and full of hints and tips. Thank you Faye for all your support! X

I spent an amazing day on Saturday, along with my friend Debbie, at Faye's Copic colouring one class. It was a fantastic day!

I am new to Copics so I was a tad nervous but Faye was so lovely and welcoming, and despite not really having a clue what I was doing, with Faye's help,patience and a great ability to explain the techniques so clearly, I began to feel less nervous!
Having Debbie next to me as well was a big bonus (as her colouring is fantastic!) and with her help too, i came away so pleased with the day, and delighted with how much I feel I learnt.

So a huge thank you to Faye and not forgetting all the ladies who kindly kept us fed and watered all day! If that wasn't enough, Tracey from Dies To Die For was there with the most amazing shop you could wish for! Thank you Tracey and hubby too!

I am so looking forward to the next class and I can't wait for March!

Hugs, Debs xx

I have now completed Copic Colouring One, Two and Three with Faye and had a fabulous time at each of the classes and learnt loads.

If you want to learn more about colouring or are a complete beginner then Faye is the person to teach you. As well as being brilliant at colouring, Faye is an excellent tutor. She explains each stage clearly, is patient and very encouraging. The classes are well-organised and Faye makes you feel welcome and at ease.

I can highly recommend Faye, and her classes.
