Beautiful model and plenty of instructions from Tricia. Made unpleasant by the necessity of having to wear masks all day. Shame the November session has been cancelled, but looking forward to February 2021!

Response from Art with Tricia:

Thanks for your feedback.
Fingers crossed our 2021 courses won't have such strict COVID restrictions and we may be able to dispense with masks.
I'm glad you enjoyed the session otherwise.
