Liana was a great teacher and structured the class to have a really good balance between introducing skills, practicing them and free play.

Teacher was knowledgeable and very capable of expressing complex and difficult tasks simply and coherently. The supplies were perfect for a beginners introductory workshop and the environment of the class was lively and fun. Definitely not taken too seriously. Overall, a great experience and is definitely something I'd recommend.

Really enjoyed the class. Wasn't slow but was easy to follow. Particularly enjoyed painting our own ideas at the end of the class.

We learnt helpful watercolour tips from the teacher. She was very engaging and gave great examples. We painted a Christmas card and we used our learnt skills to create a artwork. Very helpful and enjoyable class.
