First experience with silk paints and I really enjoyed it. Kat is a nice teacher with a lot of patience and willingness to help. Fantastic way to spend an afternoon, I found it very calming painting away with the radio on in the background. More importantly, you come away with lovely pictures that you can treasure/frame/give as gifts. Would definitely do again/has inspired me to get some of my own supplies to do in my spare time.

Many thanks.

Really enjoyed this course, learned such a lot and Kat is a brilliant teacher, so patient and willing to help. I came away with two lovely silk pictures that I am going to frame. Would do the course again.
