Course testimonials:

  • Stephen said: What a wonderful tutor very engaging and knowledgeable. Kate made it very easy to find your inner artist and the confidence to try a new skill. The day flew past can not wait to try more. Would definitely recommend if you're on the fence jump off and take the class you won't regret it.

  • Margaret said: An enjoyable and creative day. Tutor was excellent and very helpful, as well as obviously very knowledgeable about her craft.

  • Susan said: The course was taught by someone other than expected. Nancy was lovely, passionate and truly tried, but wasn't comfortable running a group and struggled to give clear direction and instruction. The participants were mostly left to figure it out ourselves, and there were a few items in the course content we did not cover. Not a bad thing, everyone was free to do as they chose, but not entirely as expected. Again, Nancy was lovely and has a bright future, but could use a little more guidance in teaching practice. Venue was inspiring. I'm really looking forward to seeing the items we made!
