I so enjoyed this course, didn’t expect to come away with the kit that was given to me. Danielle, who took the class was very knowledgable and gave clear instructions and advice. Well worth every penny. ????

This was a fun session. Danielle explained the procedure step by step and allowed variations where we wanted to experiment. There was plenty of space. Ample materials were provided and it all came in a roomy reusable calico bag. Danielle found space in the shop to store some of our work overnight as there wasn't space to keep it all flat in my car boot! We are all pleased with our creations. All in all a super experience.

My granddaughter and I had a great time at this workshop. We were given a fantastic kit with everything we needed including a great paint selection. We learnt a number of different techniques
and there is plenty of the kit left to take away and try more at home. Danielle our instructor was very informative and helpful. I would definitely recommend her and this as a fun good value experience.

Pretty good, I would agree about the techniques being used being quite samey, and we didn't move on to the supplied panel, which was frustrating as I was hoping to get some tips on how to deal with edges.

Koby was very helpful answering my multitude of questions with grace and knowledge. Overall a fun class with interesting results. Highly recommend.

All the supplies you need are ready for you, with plenty to take home for future experiments.

Rita Gilbert Apr 2022

Lovely lady but a little timid.
Would be interesting to cover more in fluid art eg, Dutch pouring, open cup pouring etc. class could be made to last a little longer. I would suggest more knowledge required on different techniques and also regarding mixing paint with pouring medium or alternatives. I did enjoy the workshop and I did have fun.

Kirstie Stenson Mar 2022

Absolutely loved the paint pouring class. So much fun. Would definitely book again. Definitely worth the money
