Sip and Paint Like Banksy


I'm an absolute beginner with paint, or any sort of art, really, and I was a bit nervous, until I realised that I could do anything I liked, with whatever colours I liked. My balloon girl was wonky, but it doesn't matter. I was a first attempt, and I think for 2 hours, my mind didn't go into overdrive once. Relaxing, interesting, fun.

Sip and Paint Coffee Cool Cat


Lovely teacher, gave people plenty of time, clear instruction. A bit more detail on how to highlight the paws would have been good.

Ink Painting Workshop: Sumi-e


Junko is a lovely kind teacher who has something good to say about everyone's work, and is quick to identify where problems might be, and offer suggestions.

Make Clay Planters


A lovely welcoming teacher, and class, with every step demonstrated well, camera angles good, nothing misunderstood or left out. All materials supplied, and a sense of play and adventure throughout. It inspired me for my own rituals and magic making.

Mindful Art Kintsugi at Home


Yoko was a kind, informative teacher who took us through every step in good time, and clearly showed how to do them. She made sure she started and finished on time, and was particularly mindful that I had to finish a little early. While we 'did nothing' but hold our pottery pieces together for the glue to dry, she told us the history of kintsugi and talked about traditional methods. All participants came away with a successfully repaired and decorated piece, and Yoko freely answered all questions, leaving nothing out.

Learn the Art of Chai at Home


Wonderfully informative, with a potted history of tea, and spices, presented by a lovely person. The chai samples were delicious and plentiful, and the chai-making fun. A pleasant 2 hours that lightened lockdown.
