Thoroughly enjoyed Dina's marbling afternoon course. Really good workshop set up, good explanations and great fun trying out different effects. Have returned home with a little kit so hope to have a go myself eventually. Lovely tea and cake! Thank you

I attended the paper marbling course last weekend which was excellent. It was very organised and well prepared and the studio was lovely and bright.
Dina and her mum were very attentive and could not have been more helpful. They have lots of experience of this art and the initial demonstrations were followed by plenty of hints and tips throughout the afternoon. The products used were high quality and the selection of available paint colours was really good.
I left the workshop with several of my papers which were already dry and Dina has posted out the others to me at home. I was really pleased with what I achieved and would definitely recommend this course.

The paint pouring workshop taken by Dina, who is a competent instructor, was very new to me. I thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon session, from watching Dina demonstrate the technique, to mixing paint, pouring paint and then watching it become a work of art. I was very satisfied with the outcome of my efforts.
Dina and her mum were very helpful throughout the process and gave lots of tips and instruction. Two very nice ladies, who not only pay attention to detail but also to making you feel welcome.
A great way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

I really enjoyed the paint pouring workshop. Dina was welcoming and explained the paint pouring techniques very clearly. We had time to produce three canvases each and enjoy tea/coffee and some wonderful cakes.

Attended this workshop back in August. Dina is a fantastic tutor, and there is ample time to practise paper marbling during the workshop. The studio is very well equipped, and everything was really was prepared so that we could just get on with trying things out. Dina was constantly popping around seeing how we were getting on and clearing things up so that we didn't have to break off from what we were doing. The tea and cake was excellent - loved the home-made banana cake. Thanks for a great afternoon, and I learnt a lot.
