Course testimonials:

  • The course was wonderful. It was a bit daunting at first but I enjoyed it immensely. The instructor Ochre set it up really well and the directions, advice and the counsel was first rate. Thank you!
  • 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.
