Course testimonials:

  • Great one on one advice and guidance and a happy, supportive and encouraging environment. Highly recommended.
  • Loved the whole experience! Great tutor who gave enough info without it being too content/theory heavy for a one off workshop. I also liked the fact that all materials were included in the price. It was good to feel my confidence levels rising through the day and I loved that as a group, we were all able to produce a finished piece, that reflected our very different styles. Great fun overall and I look forward to attending other workshops in the future.
  • I loved the space and I loved the class.
