Teresa Newcombe reviewed: Watercolour Course online + kit

"Hubby and I really enjoyed this session. The time flew by and we are amazed how much was covered despite having to do induction. The paper and paints provided are top quality. Natalie is an excellent and patient tutor. The pack is inspiring and I feel excited and motivated to find time to practice before the next session!"

Community Learning Partnership responded:

" I'm so pleased you both enjoyed your first session so much! Induction is a necessity on the HAFLS courses as they are funded by the ESFA, but we hope it helps to make sure the courses are fully inclusive. Imagine how much more time you'll have to paint next week! Natalie is, indeed, an inspiration and I look forward to seeing your artwork as the course progresses. If you haven't already, do join us on our FaceBook group, CLP Mixed Media Art, as there are more opportunities to be inspired and to share - Eliz :-)"

Kathryn Livermore reviewed: Watercolour Course online + kit

"Really enjoyed the first session with Natalie- looking forward to the next! I learnt techniques that I’d no previous idea about! I also felt more confident at the end of the session due to Natalie’s encouragement and teaching . Thank you"

Community Learning Partnership responded:

" I'm so pleased that you enjoyed your first session, Kathryn, especially as so much of the first week is taken up with induction etc! If you've learned new techniques in week 1, just think of all that you will go on to achieve by week 10! Natalie is very talented herself, and a really good teacher who inspires everybody in her classes. I look forward to seeing your artwork in due course! Eliz :-)"

Anna McCann reviewed: Knitting sock workshop

"I thoroughly enjoyed the one day sock knitting course last w/e. I made a 2 colour baby sock following the the pattern & using the lovely soft yarn Monica provided. Having never made socks before it was great to have her on hand for tips on how to turn the heel & not have any gaps. I highly recommend this course & feel ready to attempt adult socks & Christmas stockings!"

Heidi Barker reviewed: Knitting sock workshop

"I really enjoyed this course, it was challenging but very rewarding. I have completed my pair of baby socks and with my new sock wool from CLP I’m ready to start a pair of adult socks. Great teaching from Monica and a lovely environment and people at CLP x"

Community Learning Partnership responded:

" Heidi, I totally agree with you. It required a lot of concentration and it took me all day, a little of Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon to finish just one sock!! But I couldn't be prouder, and I'm looking forward to having a go at a 'big foot' sock next. I have heard tell that sock-knitting is highly-addictive, and I can believe it. Thanks for coming xx"
