“Thanks again for a brilliant weekend. I booked my place with the expectation of just having a fun and creative couple of days, I certainly didn’t expect to fall in love with painting – a seed has definitely been planted. Not only did I have a great time on the course but since, I have been falling in love with so many colour combinations that I just didnt ‘see’ before: the lime green in a traffic sign perfectly complimenting the navy blue car driving in front of me, the subtle magnolia blossom appearing brighter against a dull grey wall with a blue sky backdrop. Since your course my world is quite literally more colourful – for that I thank you. To anyone considering taking this workshop – don’t delay any longer, book your place and you will not be disappointed. I cannot recommend it enough! Cara – Easter
