“Thank you for a marvelous day. Everyone really enjoyed learning some new skills and have mentioned booking in for another course already. The teaching methods and demonstrations provided were excellent. Everyone felt you were so helpful and encouraging, taking time to discuss everyone's progress and suggesting how to improve. The quality of art materials was superb. The natural light in the studio was excellent, we will all be recommending your art courses. The tuition, lunch and venue was above and beyond all expectations”
