What a fantastic day, I learnt a new skill and have a picture to hang mounted and framed inclusive of the price. Lovely homemade cake and coffee to keep me going. I thoroughly enjoyed it all. Excellent tuition, easy to follow steps.
I am an absolute beginner. I found the course at the appropriate pace and challenge. Lorraine supported me and gave me plenty of opportunities to try to be creative. What a surprise! My work once in the frame looked professional!! I will be trying this again at home. I would recommend the session.
