Inspiring little painting 'lab'. Great for relaxation while painting and socialising. Teacher is very good and she really loves what she is doing. Room is full with teacher's sea work, made you feel like on a beach ⛱️

Very enjoyable afternoon discovering how to use watercolours. Tutor was very helpful and talked us through how to use the appropriate paper and brushes before letting us loose with the paint. She made sure we all came away with something to show everyone. Great fun

Another great experience with Alma. She took us through the basics of watercolor including tools and techniques, and then had us do a few exercises before starting on the main painting. She can kindly sketched out the painting for us so that all we had to do was focus on the painting. I learned a lot and the atmosphere of the classes is always really fun and relaxing. I would definitely recommend any class with her!

Maiya Nottage Nov 2022

The class was great, there were people of different levels in the class but Alma made sure she catered to everyone and gave each person tailored help. It was a nice size, only 7 of us and a really relaxed atmosphere. She also let us stay late to finish our work which was really nice. As a complete beginner I learnt a lot and really enjoyed it.

Alma was very friendly and encouraged everyone to produce their best work. She was a good teacher and helped me to learn the foundations of painting with watercolour. Her studio was lovely and I will return for another class.

Gill Coates Nov 2022

An amazing afternoon with alma, learning a new skill. She provides all equipment (as well as teas and coffees and snacks) and the expertise. I found the class of 7 people was the right amount as she was able to spend enough time with each person so that they felt supported.
I’m looking up other courses she does as she is great!

Meher Khaku Nov 2022

Alma gave us a good introduction to watercolour technique, how to choose paints and paper, and made our small group very comfortable in her lovely studio. Our work was framed in mounting board straight after our class, and this gave us much inspiration to venture further!

We had such great fun in the private class! We had time to try out different techniques and we all created paintings using different techniques. Alma had time to help us all and she was very positive and encouraging. We loved it, would really highly recommend

Kenny Tran Sep 2022

Extremely enjoyable and relaxing class! Alma was very friendly, patient and engaging. She was also hospitable and constantly offered refill of beverages. Learnt some really cool watercolour techniques and and the final piece was nicely framed to take home when completed. Class has reignited my flame to pursue art as a hobby (which I haven't done since high school). Curious to see what her other classes are like. Thanks for a fun evening Alma!

I loved my watercolour class with Alma. The session was very informative and I came away with new skills and a mounted painting to be proud of! The studio was a lovely, quiet space with offerings of drinks and snacks while we worked - I’d definitely recommend this to anyone looking to start/improve their painting techniques or even just looking for a day out :)
