‘The studio is open, bright and inviting.  The materials are in abundance including the catering.  The tuition and coaching is focused and encouraging and overall the experience was engaging and expansive of self and other.  I would recommend this to others, yes..yes…yes.  "...do not hesitate to enter into this experience of being fully present, fully engaged and be nurtured through and into creative expression. All my senses came alive with the plunge into colour, movement and it fed my soul and body" Julie 2016
‘Amazing experience in a beautiful space….I left with a powerful piece of art and lots of confidence in my ability to create now at home.
