Fabulous experience for our team building morning! Kaisa is a brilliant host and inspired us to make some really cool abstract art pieces which will decorate our office walls :) thank you Kaisa!

Judy Olsen Sep 2023

Brilliant evening, loved the way Kaisa guided us through the process. Really thrilled with the results.

Fiona Aitchison Sep 2023

Kaisa was an excellent teacher and host. Made the atmosphere relaxed and welcoming. Gave advice and lots of different ideas to inspire.

The venue was ideal. A typical art studio which made the atmosphere feel real.

Was a very warm evening, and the venue was cool and comfortable.

Plenty of varying materials provided, allowing everyone to try out what worked best for them.

Esther Diethelm Sep 2023

I liked that after a very short introduction we could start painting. A first exercise helped us to get over the ' fear" of the first brush stroke. During the lessions the teacher gave us great tips to improve our skills. The course took part in a real art studio and with a the the supplies it had a cool vibe.
The advance information about how to get to the place ( including fotos) was very helpfull.
Definitely something to highly recommend.

Suzanne Aug 2023

It was brilliant - very relaxed and fun. Kasia was really encouraging and had loads of great ideas but also gave us the flexibility to be creative and unique. There was a wide range of materials and tools to choose from, I could have stayed for hours experimenting with it all! Thanks for a brilliant evening Kasia :)

Kaisa was fantastic and we had a great time celebrating my partner's birthday with a lovely group of ladies. Everyone was welcoming and Kaisa was helpful getting all the tools sorted and cleaned as we went and motivating us when we needed it. Thanks again for a great evening!

Kaisa’s Class was the perfect thing for a Friday night with friends.

She has such a wonderful, welcoming, encouraging energy about her and creates the best vibes with the music, snacks and chats.

It’s clear she genuinely loves what she does and is so happy to share it with others - we all feel so inspired after spending the evening in her class.

100% recommend.

Second time going to this class and really enjoyed it again. Went with a friend last time and took my sister this time as she was visiting Edinburgh - both loved it too. Very relaxed atmosphere, no pressure and Kaisa is very supportive and encouraging. Great being able to have a glass (or 2) of wine too. I’ll be back again. Thanks Kaisa.

Lindsey Hunter Feb 2023

Great teacher and lovely venue! Learnt a lot and had lots of fun. Snacks provided too!

Amanda Kim Dec 2022

The class was fun, relaxed, and creative. Kaisa was a great instructor and helped us use the tools creatively throughout the class and was also consistently cleaning the tables and refilling our waters so we could focus on painting. That was a huge help.

Kaisa was an excellent facilitator and made us feel very welcome. Small thoughtful touches for the class setup and materials made it a lovely experience.

Sinead Be Jun 2022

Kaisa our host for the evening was fab. She made sure we had everything we needed and encourage us to do what felt right. We all created some art which we all love. I would highly recommend this class, especially Kaisa who was just so accommodating. 5star for sure!

Emmi Koivisto May 2022

Great fun, all the possible materials are provided so you can do whatever you fancy!

Kelsey Barnhill May 2022

Really fun, relaxed experience! Plenty of supplies and had enough time to be creative and create both on our practice paper and canvas.

Kaisa Tiensuu May 2022

Kaisa had created a very fun alternative way to spend your Friday night with friends or even flying solo. The atmosphere was relaxed and joyful as we got to sample with the given paints and supplies, which were plentiful, or cry over our lack of creativity whilst listening to some tunes in the background. I though Kaisa had a good grip over the class and it felt like sitting down with friends even though most of us were strangers to each other. She seemed to have an interest for each individual's creative journey and kept the chat going and would pop around for some suggestions if you got stuck. Most importantly I learned from the class that painting is nothing to be afraid of and can be a great way to de-stress or self-reflect or just destroy a perfectly fine canvas with your artistry.

Wilma May 2022

Although the lady was very polite and nice , we could have been in the studio without her. To be honest , I’m not sure what she was supposed to do but all she did was point out the ‘tools etc’ on the table.
Had a good laugh , overall I’m not sure I would recommend. It was a ‘one off’ activity for me.
Also, ‘snacks’ should say a packet of crisps

Teacher's response

Hi Wilma,

Thank you for the feedback. I appreciate constructive ideas as the class is still new and looking for it's final form. The format for private parties is a bit looser but I will definitely take your feedback into consideration going forward.

Many thanks,

Marjory May 2022

Wonderful class as an alternative to pubbing/clubbing for a ‘hen do’. BYOB was helpful.

Ladies was friendly, helpful and informative.

Arttu Salonen May 2022

The class was all about experimenting on what works for you personally, and the instructor was extremely supporting and encouraging for everyone to keep on trying different things. Whenever I was uncertain on how to proceed she had a number of useful suggestions to try, all of which allowed me to keep moving forward with my canvas. I can highly recommend the class to anyone who has ever been interested in painting.

Katerina Blumenrath May 2022

I had a great time in Kaisa's class! We got to try many different techniques with different tools which Kaisa always encouraged us to do. The time flew by and it was definitely a new and fun experience for a Friday night. I would recommend the class anytime :)
