I am not sure what to say that hasn't been said in all the other reviews on here! Anna is fabulous, warm and welcoming. Her attention to detail within the working space is outstanding, everything you need is immediately to hand. Her patience and knowledge are remarkable, and her studio space is a riot of incredible talent, so vibrant and so inspirational, I come away wanting to do everything!
But what of the actual craft? This was my second silk painting course with Anna, and silk painting is just so much fun. You can get as much out of silk painting, if you have two left thumbs when it comes to art, or if you are a fine artist! The techniques are explained by Anna so well and it is a true mix of doing what is suggested and then adding your own unique style or twist. Everybody's work will come out in a different way, which is part of the magic. Cannot recommend highly enough.
PS Did I mention that tea, coffee biscuits and marvellous cake are always on hand!!
This was my second silk painting course with Anna &, yet again, it was a thoroughly enjoyable day. Anna's calm, friendly approach makes it a relaxed learning environment. Thank you Anna
I booked this course as a birthday present for my very creative friend and we attended on Monday the 25th March. I have to say I am not arty or crafty in anyway but we both had a fantastically enjoyable day learning something new and Anna is the most lovely person. I mainly booked the course on the reviews from others and certainly was not disappointed. Anna is a very talented and interesting lady who is obviously into lots of different crafty things , which my friend knew all about . Anna welcomes you warmly and although nearly two hours way from where we live it was worth the travel. Thank you Anna for a wonderful day.
Had a fantastic day yesterday with Anna on a silk painting workshop. It was organised by my friend as a birthday surprise and she couldn’t have chosen a better day out for me and her. Anna was very welcoming and friendly and was an amazing patient and knowledgeable teacher. Will be booking another one soon!
What a wonderful day that my sister and I had on the silk painting one day course. I can't recommend Anna and her classes highly enough. The class was so well structured and we easily completed two pieces of work. The first, a small sample square using various techniques (so pretty) and the second a piece of our choice. I was so pleased with what I achieved. Anna is such a kind, energetic, friendly and knowledgeable person, spending a day in her company was a delight, spending a day in her vibrant and interesting workshop was a truly wonderful experience.
What a fabulous day! From being a total beginner I left with a good understanding of silk painting techniques & a couple of, quite passable, images. For my first attempt I left feeling quite chuffed with myself and with a desire to do more.
This was all due to my lovely instructor Anna who was friendly, patient and explained things simply & effectively. Her style of breaking down each technique into bite size chunks of 'explain, demonstrate, then you do' meant my interest was maintained throughout. I would recommend this course to anyone.
I found the silk painting course a wonderful experience, Anna is an excellent tutor, guiding you through the process in a relaxed and enjoyable manner. I learned a lot while I was there and came away with a fabulous piece of painted silk which I am proud to show off to my friends. Anna makes it all seem so easy with her demonstrations and gives advice all along the way, she taught me several different techniques to enhance and give texture and interest to the work and all in her delightfully quirky studio which is crammed full of her amazing eclectic art. A wonderful day, thank you Anna.
