What our students say

The tutor was wonderful. The course fascinating. And the setting, inspiring. I learned more about myself and my creativity, which I would never of gained on my own.

Sophie

The tutor was warm, generous and kind.

Sophie

I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed this rich and insightful webinar. Kate was a fantastically engaging presenter. I loved her talk on Ithell Colquhoun and how she really brought to life her connection with the spirit world and energies contained in the landscape. The demonstrations were wonderful – and so clearly developed and easy to follow. I have had so much fun playing with these techniques in the studio. 

Amy F

The course is about personal development and it certainly achieves that. It stretches you, makes you move out of your comfort zone and try different things. I have never enjoyed playing so much and being in my studio space. Thank you

Chrisi K

A beautiful course on all levels, deep and lovely productive time spent on understanding the process – Kate really is a great tutor.

Caroline

Look at painting in a completely different way to other courses.
