I thoroughly enjoyed my two days being creative, thank you so much Nikki! I feel that I’ve learnt much from the experience and am now ordering clay to make models with my children. I’m sure I will return

Many thanks for a brilliant weekend. I am very proud of my hare and having shown it to friends and family others have said that they would love to give it a go. I've never done anything like this before and was very impressed with the patience and encouragement provided by Nikki.

Response from Nikki Szabo:Thank you Julie,
I loved this workshop. Nikki is a very accomplished tutor. I am an artist and not easy to instruct as I have my own ideas about the creative process. Nikki guided me, showed fantastic patience and was very flexible about me diverging from some of the finishing details of the hare. She is also very good at tutoring without interference, a rare quality in a teacher! The space is great and Nikki is generous with her refreshments. Highly recommended, beginners to experienced artists.

Response from Nikki Szabo:Thank you Cheryl,
Thank you Nikki for a fantastic couple of days on your mixed media Hare making course.
I really didn't think that I could create something that looked anything like your Hare, and was so pleased to go home with my own Holly the Hare.
I really like the variety of stages. From forming the armature, to moulding the form and seeing the little Hare come to life was so rewarding.
The course was really well organised and your relaxed manner made it a very enjoyable couple of days.
In addition to a great course, the setting was beautiful, and we were very spoilt with lots of refreshments, snacks and yummy lunches.
I think I need a partner for Holly so may be back :-)

What a fantastic two days I had - I am the proud owner of a hare that looks remarkably like the one Nikki made (who would have thought that!). The food and drinks were in abundance and very good. Nikki was very enthusiastic, approachable and encouraging.
I would fully recommend this course to my "crafty" friends - never a boring moment and great fun exloring all the forms of mixed media.
Go for it!
