Feedback from past students

" I thoroughly enjoyed this course and found the teacher helpful, enthusiastic and great to learn from."

"Everything was done quickly and efficiently and all the students were able to produce a number of artefacts. Very organized friendly and knowledgable."

"This was such a productive session. No stuffing around just got into it. I find sometimes we wait for instructor to set up then waffle on and the first 1 hr has gone, in a 3 hour session that is really annoying, since it takes me 50 minutes to get there. Such an interesting class!! A really nice lady."

"Very experienced and helpful. The teacher was both knowledgeable and approachable."
