I went to Laura’s Birds and Wildlife Watercolour workshop. I am a complete beginner and was a little apprehensive but I needn’t have been. Laura was very welcoming and there was no pressure, I learnt so much in the 3 hours I was there and actually came away with some artwork I was proud of! Totally inspiring, I highly recommend it.

Thoroughly enjoyed every minute of this course. Laura is a very accomplished and talented artist who managed to guide me through my work with ease to produce pieces that I didn’t think I was capable of. Couldn’t recommend this day any more!

A great day . Laura was so hospitable ......needless to say talented . She had planned the day so well ...introducing us to different techniques and materials. After giving us the "tools " with which we could experiment and feel free to try some of our own ideas the time raced past . Laura constantly gave us encouragement and advice . We both produced some worthwhile work and came away with a great feeling of satisfaction and achievement .
Thank you Laura for a lovely day .
