Laurie Danforth reviewed: Hazel Dormouse - beginners coloured pencil drawing with Linda Hampson

"I spent considerable time researching potential teachers of colored pencil. Linda Hampson stood out as not only a wonderfully talented artist, but also an excellent teacher. I really enjoy Linda's explanations of why she does this or that and her repetition of critical aspects of drawing. Her approach is thoughtful, carefully filmed and fun! I would highly recommend any tutorial or workshop of Linda Hampson. It's fun to learn facts about her topics as well which are always included between drawing steps."

The Old Kennels responded:

" Oh Laurie, thank you so much for such a lovely review! In 'usual' times when we saw our customers 'in person' we knew they enjoyed our courses as they could just tell us. But with so much 'online' now we its harder for us to know we are getting things right, so when people take the time to write constrictive reviews we are just so grateful, it gives us great satisfaction in our work! Do hope you will enjoy this years new offerings, and please share your results with us by email or on our social media we love to see what you have been up to ! :)"

Mon reviewed: Working with silver at The Old Kennels

"This course was my first time working with silver. The tutor, Julian Livingstone, is experienced and very patient giving individual help and advice where needed. Over the two days I produced a ring and a beautiful tea caddy spoon that I'll treasure. Our hostess, Tracey is always welcoming and attentive to everyone attending the courses."

The Old Kennels responded:

" Thank you for such a lovely review Mon, very much appreciated! I’m so pleased you enjoyed your course with Julian he really is a super tutor :)"
