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.

Response from The Old Kennels:

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 :)

I have thoroughly enjoyed Linda’s classes and learnt so much. I think I have done nearly all of them now and have no hesitation in recommending them.

Having taken a couple of Linda's 'in person tutorials', I was delighted that, during lockdowns, I was able to access her video courses - they have kept me going through these strange times, and
it is so good to be able to revisit the videos when required. They have also encouraged me to move on
to drawing other subjects.

The notes, as ever, are excellent and I continue to enjoy my drawing immensely.

Response from The Old Kennels:

Thank you so much for your kind review Liz :)
I'm not sure we would ever have found time to produce online video tutorials if it wasn't for lockdowns. It has been a steep learning curve but we are really enjoying it and I think its something we will keep doing.
Wonderful to hear you are enjoying them!

Online on-demand course
Susan Warner - - #32106

I have never used oil paints and whilst my result is not perfect David’s suggestions, but also reassurances, that whatever happens is fine kept me going and I am quite pleased and definitely going to try something else.

Response from The Old Kennels:

Thank you Susan, not only the the kind review, but also for sharing your first very beautiful oil painting with us! You should be very proud of what you have achieved and I really hope you are inspired to keep going now! Davids next video Glorious Glazes is now also available to view!

Karen M. - - #32080

A highly enjoyable video, David, thank you! I found the 'don't be precious' approach very liberating as it can be such a pitfall when painting. I also warmed to David's down to earth style of teaching, it has a meditative quality about it. Intuitive abstract landscape painting speaks to me so I look forward to more online painting videos by David.

Response from The Old Kennels:

Thank you Karen, what a lovely review, Davids next video Glorious Glazes is now also available to view!
Meditative and down to earth sums Davids style up very well!
