Sophie Park reviewed: Create a contemporary landscape in acrylic.

"I would certainly recommend this workshop. Julia was knowledgeable, supportive and friendly. I felt like I really benefited from the experience whilst also thoroughly enjoying myself. I’ve learned a lot about the different choices of acrylic, brushes, and materials, which I will take into my teaching practice. The course was well stocked and gave the students so much to choose from, that leant itself to unlimited creativity. Julia gave me lots of advice and inspiration. I will definitely be at any future events. Great value for money. "

Jen reviewed: Get Abstract - Painting and Mixed Media Workshop

"We had a fab day abstract painting for the very first time! Julia was a lovely and attentive teacher, supplying us with everything we needed and we even had biscuits and brews! The day was great fun, and both my dad and myself have our very own abstract canvases on display in our homes. The workshop is perfect for any skill level, and made a fab gift. Thanks Julia!"

SulikoSoul responded:

" Thanks :) Glad you benefited from the day and enjoyed trying something a bit different!"
