Student Feedback

"Today my daughter and I did this course, and I just wanted to let management know that we throughly enjoyed the course. She was an excellent teacher and shared her great knowledge and enthusiasm with us. I would recommend her class to anyone."

"Great teacher who explained the structure of the day and gave enough background information without loosing everyone’s interest. Good amount of practical time to do a project."

"The tutor is an excellent teacher. I have attended a number of her classes over the years. She has a wealth of experience and knowledge which she enthusiastically passes on to her students."

"Friendly, fun, informative, hands on."

"The tutor was a wonderful, enthusiastic person, who made the day a real joy. A really fun day with lots of like-minded people. The fact there were only 6 of us was a bonus as there was plenty of space and resources for everyone."

"Very friendly, encouraging and planned a good mix of information and practical work. Appeared very organised and well planned. Able to meet group’s individual needs as well as create a good, fun learning environment. Our class number of six was perfect as it allowed the tutor to support all members of the class."

"A very enjoyable day, learnt new skills, felt adult learning principles were applied by the tutor, and importantly I felt motivated to apply the skills further. Also the tutor ensured that we all came away from the workshop with a finished product."

"Ro was very enthusiastic and shared her vast knowledge generously with us. It was good that there were only 6 of us in the course as we had plenty of attention. The course provided us with everything we needed."

"Enthusiastic, knowledgeable, able to inspire. So much was achieved in such a short time. Everyone in the class seemed to be so pleased with their work."

"Bubbly, happy, more than willing to accommodate requests. Actual outcome far exceeded expected outcome which is always nice!"
