Course testimonials:

  • I most enjoyed the range of medium we explored. I also liked the way the lesson started with real life examples of what we were aiming for with explanation of the technique used. Ochre had excellent knowledge of technique and she achieved a good balance of giving us space to explore and experiment, as well as advising along the way.
  • Jody was organised, knowledgeable and supportive. I really appreciated the demonstrations as it is not always easy to assess how something is done simply by looking at it. The class was lively and we were introduced to some interesting new techniques. A valuable use of my time. Thank you!!
