Lindsay was informative, friendly and helpful. I enjoyed learning new skills and surprised myself with the end results. I would however suggest that the course for a beginner, was about three quarters of an hour too short. It would have been easier for me if the we actually did each step just after Lindsay explained it as opposed to once she'd finished the whole procedure .

Response from Laconic:

Thanks so much for your review Karen, I'm glad you enjoyed the workshop and appreciate your feedback on this course!
