Had a fantastic two days at the course. Rhain and Ettore were great instructors, there when needed but also allowed us to work at our own pace. The course was very well organised, a great way to meet new people and gave me the opportunity to try something new/creative. I highly recommend it.

Had a wonderful weekend workshop a lot easier than I thought. Teachers Ettore and Rhein were extremely knowledgeable, friendly and offered guidance when needed. Would definitely recommend and will be joining once moved into the region.

This course was fabulous. The tutors do an excellent job of teaching and answering all of the questions. Also very welcoming and we were provided with a lovely lunch on Saturday. I travelled 350 kms to do this course and it was definitely worth it. 👍🏻
