I really enjoyed exploring different reactions and being creative with new materials. The course has also helped me revisit areas I thought I knew and look at the in a different way. A fun, creative and very informative two days.

A fantastic 2 days! In addition to learning new skills, I found ways to improve existing techniques. Becky is an excellent and patient teacher who certainly gave me a lot of food for thought. I am now busy experimenting!

Excellent tutor who gave energy and a huge amount of information during the two day class. Felt that learned a great deal, even regarding certain techniques I already felt I knew!

Course well thought through. Different experiments meant we all had a different understanding, however at times a little chaotic.

We made lots of trial pieces, which was great fun and increased my knowledge considerably. Nice to play with things I don’t normally use.
