Really enjoyed todays workshop it was informative and fun. Emma gave us space to explore individually but was always on hand to support when needed. There is nothing I would change about the lovely day and give it top marks. I would recommend to all.

It was such a nice day lovely to work with like minded people. The small group size was really appreciated as you never felt left to your own devices. I would recomend 10/10 to friends or family.
