Thoroughly enjoyed Dina's marbling afternoon course. Really good workshop set up, good explanations and great fun trying out different effects. Have returned home with a little kit so hope to have a go myself eventually. Lovely tea and cake! Thank you

I attended the paper marbling course last weekend which was excellent. It was very organised and well prepared and the studio was lovely and bright.
Dina and her mum were very attentive and could not have been more helpful. They have lots of experience of this art and the initial demonstrations were followed by plenty of hints and tips throughout the afternoon. The products used were high quality and the selection of available paint colours was really good.
I left the workshop with several of my papers which were already dry and Dina has posted out the others to me at home. I was really pleased with what I achieved and would definitely recommend this course.

The paint pouring workshop taken by Dina, who is a competent instructor, was very new to me. I thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon session, from watching Dina demonstrate the technique, to mixing paint, pouring paint and then watching it become a work of art. I was very satisfied with the outcome of my efforts.
Dina and her mum were very helpful throughout the process and gave lots of tips and instruction. Two very nice ladies, who not only pay attention to detail but also to making you feel welcome.
A great way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

I attended this workshop in January 2020 and had an amazing afternoon,
Dina is lovely, so helpful and patient and I was made to feel really welcome when I arrived.
The workshop has a lovely friendly atmosphere and is set in beautiful surroundings. The home made cakes were absolutely delicious and drinks available when required.
I was so pleased with the final candles, they are beautiful, smell divine and everyone has commented how lovely and professional they look and no nasty chemicals.
I bought a candle making kit from Dina and am now confident to make my own candles.
Would highly recommend this workshop, thoroughly enjoyable.

Attended this workshop back in August. Dina is a fantastic tutor, and there is ample time to practise paper marbling during the workshop. The studio is very well equipped, and everything was really was prepared so that we could just get on with trying things out. Dina was constantly popping around seeing how we were getting on and clearing things up so that we didn't have to break off from what we were doing. The tea and cake was excellent - loved the home-made banana cake. Thanks for a great afternoon, and I learnt a lot.

Would highly recommend this course. I had a fabulous time and really enjoyed the class. Everybody was very helpful and friendly not to mention the gorgeous home baked cakes too. Can't wait to get some paints and get started on this amazing craft. It's exciting to see how the paint reacts when it is poured.

What a treat to "step inside" 35 Design Studio for an easy-to-follow course on paint pouring. It was such an amazing experience. I felt at home. And a great present to have for my birthday.
The instruction given by Dina (an amazing artist, designer and all round creative being, and her mum) was an easy flow of information.
I enjoyed it that much I purchased a bag of goodies to continue experimenting at home. There is a coloured guide and photos for each section, list of tools and equipment, and through discussions on the course on the best methods and acrylics to use. Dina has a hive mind, demonstrating different techniques, explaining effects and possible design capabilities.
I thoroughly enjoyed myself (and the banana cake) and can’t wait to experiment and improve on my paint pouring journey.
