Simela is one talented lady! She's an excellent teacher, excellent artist and a delight to be around. Her thorough and comprehensive workshop format helped me understand some techniques to get started with watercolour. Cant wait to get wreath painting! Thanks Simela, see you at the next workshop.

My daughter and I attended a Watercolour Wreath Workshop in March and really enjoyed the evening. It was a good way to be introduced to watercolour painting and everyone was welcoming and friendly. I would recommend this workshop to anyone interested in watercolour or floral painting.

Really well organised with a very enthusiastic teacher! Loved the take-home workbook and extra tips, and am looking forward to doing some more watercolours now that I know some basics!
