Want to review this course?

This is the third workshop I have done with Tambour and Clutch and I loved it as much as the first two. The tutor is warm and welcoming and paces the session at individual speeds which builds confidence. The session is very informative and any questions are answered knowledgeably. The building is beautiful and is set in a lovely location.
