An excellent craft course, presented by a skilled tutor with the ability to get information across to students in an easy and comfortable manner. Advance information about the course was clear and timely, and the materials sent out were of high quality. Ten out of ten.

I agree with everything Anne said about Lena's course. Lena's teaching really was excellent and the pack of materials she sent us in advance was too, as were the notes she sent to us afterwards. I love the little book I made. It was very good value for money.

Lina is a terrific teacher. Zoom is not an easy medium to teach on but she made the group comfortable very quickly and her instructions were very clear and well paced. I learnt loads and I’m really happy with the notebook I made. The kit sent through the post was great too.
