Mick was a fantastic instructor who put us all at ease and made sure we got the most out of our time. Would recommend to absolutely anyone!

Mick is fantastic. He really engaged our group of 11 well. We had a Hen's Day and Mick provided lovely snacks and great drinks, with music in the background, it was a great atmosphere and everyone had fun. The location at Ainslie Arts Centre was excellent, plenty of room and easy to find. This was a great activity and would also really suit any company/team event, group of friends etc. Highly recommended.

Mick was great at helping us loosen up & let go of our awkwardness. Also very inspiring & encouraging. The fabulous spotify playlist also really helped.

I really enjoyed exploring an artistic side I was forced to abandon in year 11 (over 30 years ago) due to a clash between Economics and Art. Although I am sure my parents were right, i'd never be an artist, it was no doubt clear i'd never be an economist either.

I loved this experience & will definitely recommend to others.

I purchased as Xmas gift for husband. He loved it! Mick (teacher) was very encouraging. Hubby is colour blind and doesn’t do much in the way of creative art. He found it relaxing and lots of fun, using the paints and his hands as the tools. Highly recommend

It was a super fun night! Mick ran the workshop in a way that was somehow both relaxed and structured. The food and wine were great too.

Jessamy Sams Oct 2020

Excellent venue, expert teaching, A+ snacks. Well structured and well paced little lessons made it easy to follow, but there was still plenty of room for creativity!

Emily Mackay Oct 2020

Had such a fun time and Mick had a great approach to helping us not take ourselves too seriously. Mused much on the colour purple

Fran 'sofrank' Oct 2020

Finger painting with Mick Ashley was a lot of fun - Mick challenged us to play with colour (or lack of), use both sides of our brain and taught techniques to improve our finished pieces.

Leave your painting inhibitions at the door; Mick will encourage you to create.
