Alcohol Ink Workshop: Planter Pots



A fantastic experience. Caroline has a lovely studio with plenty of beautiful examples of her own work on display. She quickly picked up on my taste in colours and was happy to share her tips about techniques and where to purchase products. I would highly recommend her classes and look forward to learning more from her.

Caroline is INCREDIBLE! She is so kind and passionate about her art. She is not only extremely talented at resin art, but she also specialises in a range of other work like alcohol painting and jewellery making. I cannot recommend this class enough. Thank you, Caroline!

Alcohol Ink Class: Floral Plate and Tile



Caroline is a generous and kind teacher, sharing her wealth of knowledge and skills. The venue is mostly accessible, there is a flat pathway from the front of the property to the workroom. There is a small step to get into the bathroom. The materials used were of good quality with a variety of vibrant colours. I certainly built on my understanding of alcohol inks and how to use them on different   + more

Cricut Class for Beginners



Caroline was great since before we started, she asked what were my expectations and issues. She was quite understanding and guide me patiently through my issues and queries. Her workshop was great, she has devoted herself into many other crafts and was very interesting to look around and see what else does she make. Caroline provided materials, showed me and recommended best suppliers and alternative brands. I really liked attending her class and believe it was a great investment as I not only got to learn how to use my cricut machine better but  + more
