Loved every minute of it. Bridgette is very patient and very generous with her knowledge and the rationale behind things. Felt very safe with the Covid restrictions.
Excellent value for money. Totally recommend.

Excellent course and excellent tutor - learnt lots of new tips and techniques and I'd definitely like to do more. Just bought some curved nail scissors so I can carry on with the snipping!

Good venue too. Great to see how the venue and tutor managed the whole thing despite the current situation. Was a very much welocme break from the current routine.

Response from Bridget Bernadette Karn Studio/Shop:

Thank you Jillian, so pleased you enjoyed the course!
I’m looking forward to seeing your hare and any future creations you make on the forum.

This is possibly one of the most in-depth art courses that I have been on.
The wealth of information and guidance given was beyond expectations.

Bridget has the most wonderful teaching approach, with bags of patience.
I will certainly be going back for another course.

The Hawkshill, where the course was held was also excellent. I could not fault the venue, staff, food or accommodation.
Thank you.
