Benedict and Ashton's patience with our many questions was great, it made us engaged and we enjoyed the hands-on aspect as well.

A great course with lots of important content and a valuable practical component. I learnt so much on the day and went away with great links, references and further reading to do. Benedict and Ashton are great teachers!
