At Ecclesall Woods we pride ourselves on the high quality teaching from our tutors and our low class numbers (max 5 for most classes) and a number of our courses also have an assistant.
We have found that smaller class sizes are more productive, un-rushed and allow students to learn more.
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 4 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
You will need to bring a wipe clean apron, wear covered shoes & have clothing which covers your arms and a packed lunch.
