Had an absolute blast on this course today. Helen is so welcoming and a fantastic teacher. I felt immediately at ease and had such a fun time. Even though I had no prior experience, I created a wonderful piece of art. We will definitely book on one of the courses again in future.
Thank you Helen!

Response from Helen Moyes Designs:

Thanks Amy, I enjoyed today too, facitating all your creativity. Keep Crafting!
