“Charley was super super great especially with my Mum who at 69 hasn't played with paint for many years! We all had a really great time thanks so much for organising it all so that she had a great birthday. Love the borough venue too. Tea was an unexpected bonus too :)” Lino printing
“Hi Sam, Thanks so much!! Abby was so great and the set up was spot on – I was really impressed. Everyone is raving about it this morning and saying it’s the best social we’ve done so far!! We will definitely be back 😃. Have a lovely weekend! Thanks again" Lydia, Kite Human Capital, Creative Team Building, Painted Ceramics
"A great course with an inspiring teacher. " Jeanina C, Modern Calligraphy for Beginners
"Thank you SO much for hosting us. Everyone had such a lovely time - even those who didn’t think they were “arty" surprised themselves and had such fun and came away with something they were really proud of. Jade in ceramics said it was the best thing she’d done for years and didn’t want to leave! So thank you. You and your team made it a really special day for us." Muireann, Double M Films, Creative Team Building, Painted Ceramics & Tote Bag Design
"Charley is amazing. She is patient and always willing to help everyone get to the outcome on design they really want. She is a huge part of why we have continued to plan birthday parties and fun events here." Rachel S, t-shirts & Tiles, Creative Birthday Party
"Just wanted to say a big thank you for having us all on Thursday, everyone loved their time there as evidenced by the feedback from their emails. Thanks so much for being so hospitable. Got a lot of footage, more than I've ever shot anywhere else so loads to go through. Once I have got images ready for you I will send through to you, this may take some time, so please bare with me. Thanks so much again and hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend..." Iain Campbell, Creative Stock Photography / Filming session
"Hi Sam, Thanks to you guys, it was amazing! Everyone enjoyed and we had some great results in the end. Georgie who ran the session was fantastic, super friendly and very patient with us! Thank you" Camilla S, tote bag design
"I honestly had the best time. Something I’d never think to do on my own too. M.Y.O were really great to me too, Alex and Sam are class. Love my t-shirt.
I loved it, it was so cool to get creative again (since back then in school) - great to focus on the one thing and actually create something.
It was glorious and SO much fun ☺ I love doing activities that you can take something home from, especially when it is a creative exercise like that. I liked that it wasn’t very boozy, since the activity itself was so engaging." Monotype, Lino Printing & T-shirt design, Off-site Creative Team Building
"Great space! Great staff! Really enjoy the whole experience and can't wait to try and bring some friends next time!". Carlo L, Drop-in Creative Session
“Make Your Own (M.Y.O) run workshops that facilitate you making your own stuff! From ceramics to t-shirt prints they do a whole range of things. Fantastic as an alternative way to de-stress, or as a date night / activity to enjoy with friends. Brings the creative side out of you! Would highly recommend.” Kishore
"I just wanted to say how pleased myself and my daughter Kerry - Louise were with Charlie and the workshop on Saturday. Charlie was very helpful and fun and we both had a fantastic time. Thanks" Siobhan
"Love this workshop/studio - the classes are so fun, creative and well run and really good value. Definitely recommend doing a class or two here to learn new skills, relax away from phones etc and have huge amounts of fun doing so!"
"Excellent evening. Relaxing and fun. Very welcoming. Will 100% be back."
"Great experience and best way to unwind for a few hours! Great support from Martha. Will def go back! I love my tote bag!"
"My mum and I went to this class and had a fabulous time! The workshop is like a rainbow with so many colours making the environment welcoming and relaxing. I decided to make a t-shirt and with a book of designs and lots of materials to choose from I made a t-shirt I adore! Mum went for a tote bag which she uses for shopping. I would 100% recommend this experience for anyone who loves arts and crafts and wants to take time out from their busy schedule to be creative!" Tara, Experience Days
“Thank you for your email and for Friday, it really was a great day the staff really loved it and their work is now proudly displayed in our foyer!” The Brit School, Creative Team Building, T-shirt Design
"Had such a great evening! Thank you Polly for a fab introduction to modern Calligraphy and for all the tips! Time just flew by, I could have stayed a few more hours practising my letters, soo relaxing! Great hosts, definitely recommend and I will be back for more!" Christelle M

"This is an amazing place to go on your own and meet other like-minded people or with a group of friends and just have some fun.
I went to the T-Shirt and Tote Bag printing evening. It is very relaxed and they have super friendly staff to show and help you. The evening went so quickly and everyone was really happy with what they had produced. There are so many varied crafts available to learn. The facilities are superb and great value for money. I can definitely recommend this place for a night out with a difference. Thank you M.Y.O"
"I visited MYO with some friends for my birthday, the host was really welcoming. It was a great relaxed atmosphere and there was a really good array of options to choose from activity wise. Had a great birthday evening so thank you!" Amina E
"I just wanted to say an enormous thank you for last night - everyone loved the class and felt it was pitched perfectly (educative but fun). I've already spread the MYO gospel to a few friends this morning so hopefully they also make it down at some point." Luke, Fluidly, Creative Team Building, Life Drawing
"My son bought me this for my birthday. I arrived to find I was the only one on the workshop, which was a bonus! Sam was a fantastic teacher, showed me how to transfer onto ceramic, explained colours, firing etc. Really enjoyed this workshop, I've done ones before where the 'teacher' hovers over you which Sam certainly didn't. I'd really recommend this workshop to anyone, even if they have no experience of pottery, painting, or even creativity!" Sheila, Painted Ceramics
"My boyfriend and I did the pinch pots course and it was fantastic. Dianne and Sam are so generous with their time which made it a really relaxing and enjoyable experience. Really enjoyed it and am now looking into other classes to do!" Sara P, Handmade Pottery - Pinch Pots
"I booked this as a birthday present for a friend and we went along for some fun too. It was wonderful! Such a lot of choice of things to do in a really friendly atmosphere. The helpers were fantastic -couldn’t have been more helpful. Coffee in a cafetière on tap all evening - how lovely! A very relaxing and thoroughly enjoyable evening. Brilliant idea! Would definitely do it again! Any chance of maybe including candlemaking at some point? Can’t wait to pick up our pottery once it has been fired! We went to the Borough studio -really pretty inside and very easy to find very close to Borough Tube. Thank you all." Book creative studio time

We got amazing feedback from people saying it was one of the best events they’ve been to, and the work we received out of it was incredible so major props!"

Warner Music, Off-site Creative Team Building, Ceramic Mug Painting
