I thoroughly enjoyed my day with Jill - it was good to learn some new techniques, she is a very good teacher, patient and helpful, and very experienced. I was thrilled with the peony spray I took home, and am completely hooked on cold porcelain. I have ordered an airbrush, having had a go with Jill's, and although I have lots of cutters and equipment already, I am going to invest in a few more pieces, ready for my new venture. Thank you so much Jill, for inspiring me.

I recently attended this course and thoroughly enjoyed it. Jill is an excellent tutor and shares her knowledge and enthusiasm effortlessly and patiently. I learnt so much in just one day and have been inspired to learn more.
I highly recommend this course. Thank you, Jill, for a lovely day.

I returned to Jill's studio after completing the one day sugarcraft course but this time for two days. on this occasion i wanted to create a poinsettia display for my Christmas cake and I must say, what was achieved in two days surpassed my expectations. For me, (and as a novice), working with cold porcelain allowed me to be more creative and I found it more easier to handle than sugar paste. I will booking onto a third course in 2018 as I have found the experience incredibly relaxing, fun and I must say, incredibly enjoyable, thank you Jill.

A thoroughly enjoyable workshop in the comfort of a beautifully clean and relaxing studio. Jill is an excellent tutor, with a calming nature. She makes you feel at ease and is full of encouragement from start to finish.
For someone who enjoys craft, but is not particularly artistic, I have created a piece of art I am proud to put on display 😊
