Kez's Materials workshop is extremely informative and invaluable when it comes to finding out the technical side of using oil paints, mediums and suitable brushes. The workshop cleared up many queries I had with my own work. Suitable for beginners and more experienced painters. Kez is not only delightful but is a mine of information. She makes everything clear in an enjoyable environment. Coffee and cake delicious too!

My knowledge of oils and brushes has been advanced significantly. Kez is excellent and full of practical and theoretical knowledge which she imparts very well. As a beginner I have learnt so much in such a short time. The practical class was worth every minute.

This was an excellent workshop which I would recommend to everyone, including newbies and experienced painters. It covered a lot which included theory and then provided practical examples. I was particularly interested in the use of different mediums and brushes which was well and truly addressed. Yummy cake too. Thank you.
