I arranged for my nine year old grandson, Elliot, to attend this class on Monday and he really enjoyed it. In fact, he said to me that it was much better than he thought it would be! Jan and her assistant were delightful and when I went to pick Elliot up I could see that Jan had really captured the children's imagination. The class was well run and easy to book online. The venue is great and the cost was very reasonable. It is so nice to see the old auction rooms being put to good use. Elliot also enjoyed looking at the art exhibition.
