Painting class


Malou was a great teacher. All 5 students had not used watercolour before and she gave us all alot of encouragement.
We learnt about how to wash, blend and mix colours then we chose our own picture or used one of her still lifes.
She demonstrated how to start off and then individually helped us all.
The venue was awesome with comfortable surroundings, nibbles provided and nice chill out music playing.
The materials were of good quality and the value for money for this crash course was excellent. I just wish it went on for longer,it was over too soon!
Nice to take home my first watercolour, I was surprised my first painting turned out ok. It definitely helped having a small class too.
Highly recommend her class.

Soap Making class


I enjoyed the soap making course alot. It was highly informative with lots of info at the beginning but we got to make two 400ml tubs of our own soaps to take home (about 10 slices altogether)
Venue was small but so cosy and elena offered herbal tea and muffins before we started our work.
Elena made a big effort to give us as much information as possible and she was fun and relaxed in her teaching.
V small class so we received good 1 to 1 help.
Excellent value. Elena went over the 3.5 hrs but didnt rush us which was great.
Tools and materials provided were really good.
A definite recommendation to this class if you want to have fun but also go home with the knowledge to make your own soaps to sell or give as beautiful gifts.

Abstract Painting, Half Day Class


Great value for money! Really enjoyed the acrylic painting with meditation. Yvette was a patient and calm teacher and let us go with the flow with our painting and relax .
All materials were provided and most of us painted four pieces including one canvas.
Venue was good with free parking around the roads at the back. Main road too busy and only 2hr parking.
Very much enjoyed the class especially as it was just four people.
Thankyou!

Natural Soy Candle Making Class


This is my 2nd candle course as my 1st one was somewhere else but didnt feel I really learnt enough. This was another course. Also the candles made were very basic. But elena really explained exactly how to do the candle making really well. She made it enjoyable and the materials provided were excellent. The end result I had made 4 luxurious looking and smelling candles.
In Elena's studio its relaxed, easy going and great one to one tuition. She gives good advice and really helps you. She provides fresh fruit and herbal teas. I definitely would do another course with her. Highly recommend, lovely teacher.

Soap Making class


Really enjoyed this course with my step daughter. It was creative yet informative and elena is an excellent teacher.
She was patient as well and very positive. Thankyou so much. We also walked away with over 15 beautiful soaps
