Wonderful introduction to a beautifully practical skill. I enjoyed the day from start to end and felt like my passion for arts had been renewed after this odd time. The course was hosted in a fantastic location and inspiring setting with all the tools provided to carry on learning at home. Helen and Jools your engaging teaching style really made everything asked attainable and I hope to be back to learn some new skills soon. Thank you for your impeccable delivery, I will highly recommend this course to anyone who will listen.
