Julia B reviewed: Mixed Media workshop with Clare Cosens

"A great course and lovely way to spend a Saturday morning with like minded people. This is the second course I’ve done with Clare. On both occasions I’ve learnt a lot and have been surprised how quickly you can pick up a new skill, create something you are pleased with. Clare is a great teacher and explains everything thoroughly before you start working on your project. It doesn’t matter what experience you have, Clare is on hand to give advice, suggestions and tips to everyone in the class. Clare has extensive knowledge working with mix-media and is always looking for new ideas and methods to add that extra “edge” to her work and to pass on to people on her courses. "

Clare Cosens Designs responded:

" Many thanks for your kind words Julia. I’m really pleased that you enjoyed the workshop. I loved the way you stitched the botanicals to your artwork!"

Natasha and Alex. reviewed: Beginners half-day pairs pottery/ceramics workshop

"Alex and I (my 12 years old) booked this class upon recommendation and we were not disappointed. We had a wonderful day together. It was Alex’s first time and she really enjoyed it. She felt so comfortable and free to explore her creative side with the great support of Louise. Whilst she found the wheel hard she still enjoyed herself. For me I love pottery and I wanted to get back into it because it had been so long. From the outset Louise was friendly, and she created such a wonderful environment to play around with the clay. It’s clear she is extremely talented and knowledgable and she displays this through a warm, calm and down to earth nature. I am already looking forward to going back to learn more. "
