The four of us had a fabulous morning using our imagination and drawing with fire. What a great idea , to showcase what can be done. We gave this course as a present to my brother and sister in laws for Christmas .
Graham is really patient and provides plenty of pieces of wood and inspiration - as well as excellent biscuits and coffee to keep us all going !
