I am currently attending Masterclass with Jemina which I am finding invaluable from a learning and skills development perspective. Jemina is a very passionate and knowledgeable teacher with over 30 years in the industry. I am enjoying the course so much and have been experiencing such a growth in my own skills, that I have also attended additional workshops to further develop my skills. Did I mention she's funny? Her humour is brings an added bonus of fun to the class. If you're considering this course, just do it, Donna Smith
