Testimonials | Customer Feedback

Carolyn is a gentle & encouraging leader in these very varied & interesting sessions. In her art room just yards from the sea it's not hard to find inspiration or spend time just gazing at the ever changing light on the water. Absolute beginners will feel comfortable & the more advanced have space to do their own thing. Fantastic range of materials provided & the flapjacks are legendary.

Highly recommend these sessions, great fun & I find them very therapeutic.
