Lindsay reviewed: Paint pouring with tea & cake

"I absolutely loved this class! Dina and her mum were so lovely and really great teachers. I had watched lots of videos previously to try and learn how to paint pour myself but I am so glad that I went to this class! I learnt so much, I had such a fun afternoon and I came out with 3 beautiful paintings. I think if I'd have not gone to the class and tried to teach myself through videos then I would've ended up wasting so much money on materials as it would not have gone as well so I am really happy that I went. I highly recommend it, thank you both! "

"Brilliant afternoon and well worth attending. You can watch as many videos as you like but you really need to attend a workshop to fully understand how to pour etc"

Melissa reviewed: Paint pouring with tea & cake

"What a wonderful afternoon of paint pouring. I was a complete novice, and absolutely loved it. The price is very good, considering you get to make 3 canvasses to keep, and have lovely coffee and cakes too. Dina is a great host, and was supported by her equally lovely and helpful Mum. It's a very well run class, learning the basics of paint pouring. Highly recommended."

Cherry D reviewed: Paper marbling with tea & cake

"A well laid out studio environment with work stations set up with what we would be using. Dina gave us some historical details about marbling and then proceeded to give some demonstrations on how to do it after which it was time to have a go. Help was at hand throughout the workshop and you were free to work at your own pace. Aprons, gloves, wet wipes and paper towels in plentiful supply. Tea and coffee in various types were available along with cakes and biscuits. A thoroughly great way to spend four hours. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. I will certainly return in due course to try another workshop."

"Best course I have even been on. Price is extremely reasonable, small group allows for lots of help from Dina and her mum. The studio is lovely, light and spacious. We were very happy with our canvasses and it is a project you could carry on at home."

Ruth reviewed: Paper marbling with tea & cake

"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."

Emma reviewed: Paper marbling with tea & cake

"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."

Christine Alty reviewed: Natural & Vegan Candle Making with tea & cake

"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."

RobK reviewed: Paper marbling with tea & cake

"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."
