"I loved this course. It was such a unique and brilliant idea and one which proved useful in so many ways. Helen is a great tutor. She is enthusiastic and encouraging and really brought the importance of cordage and its many uses to life. Not only did she teach us lots of useful techniques but she brought a wealth of knowledge on the significance of the subject throughout history. It was really thought-provoking to understand how what we were doing was relevant across both time and geography. The group on the course was lovely too and we all came at this with differing backgrounds and interests but making something amazing out of all sorts of wonderful materials brought us all together. I now keep thinking of more ideas for different types of cords. It’s a really great course to inspire creativity in anyone and I would highly recommend it. Thank you Helen."
"Helen was a good and enthusiastic teacher. We learned about pigments, their use in history and possibilities for use today. Then we tried some cave painting (harder than you think) and then some time experimenting with our own ideas."
