Paul Cook reviewed: The Art of Faux Marbling Effects Course

"Have just done the marbling course with Simon. He’s a brilliant teacher and I was amazed at the results I could get after his careful tuition. Would recommend this course to anyone who’s interested in learning a new painting skill."

Fanny Brogden reviewed: Hand Painted Furniture Workshop

"Absolutely brilliant day, learned so much from Simon, different wood grains using different mediums. A lovely crowd of fellow 'students' laughed and had fun helped down with copious cups of coffee and delicious cake made by Simon's wife. Can't wait to do the marbling course. Highly recommended."

South Coast Studio responded:

"Many thanks for the kind words Fanny, it was lovely to meet you on Saturday, I'm glad that you had a good day and picked up some new skills along the way. Everyone on the course did exceptionally well and the finished results looked very professional. Looking forward to seeing you on the One Day Marbling course coming up soon. Best Wishes Simon"

Callum Shand reviewed: The Art of Faux Marbling Effects Course

"A fantastic course run excellently by Simon! The course was great fun and was set in a very calm quiet studio. The studio is a short walk away from the sea front, which provided a nice break while waiting for my paint to dry! Simon was a very knowledgeable and enthusiastic tutor, who patiently guided me through the wood graining taster course. I was very happy with the paint effect I was able to produce with Simon's guidance and would be confident in performing the technique again. I will definitely be returning to the South Coast Studio to learn more decorative paint techniques!"
