What others have said about Fiona’s courses:

“Immediately I felt completely comfortable in the environment Fiona created for us all. It was a joy to learn something new and to be able to share such lovely quiet time, working away on our pieces with a new bunch of people. I left every session feeling lighter and like it was a huge wind down from the day. A wonderful way to spend an evening”


“Thank-you for this lovely, relaxing course. I learnt new skills, got lots of ideas and thoroughly enjoyed each session”.


“Fiona creates very well structured, thoughtful and engaging content which is clearly laid out before the course even starts which get you excited. The sessions were a real treat, sitting learning at a gentle pace but with loads of inspiration and challenges. Extremely pleasurable experience and Fi has a friendly natural teaching style.”


“I'm developing new skills, am motivated to try things and am gently getting to know other people too. Fiona's community has a comfortable atmosphere for both artistic people and those at the more crafty end of the creative spectrum.”
