Courses & Workshops

My courses & workshops are all relaxed & informal, providing a friendly atmosphere in which you will learn & achieve, meeting like-minded people & making new friends.

My workshops are run in small groups of between six to eight students which enables you to have the tuition you need to complete the flowers & foliage. Everything is explained to you step by step with time to make notes & ask questions. The timescales are between one to four days depending on the complexity of the project.

My courses are termly, running for two hours per week for ten to twelve weeks depending on the term. We usually have a half term break of one week. In these classes there will be a maximum of ten students. They are a mixed ability class so whether you are a beginner or someone with more experience there is something for everyone.

So take a look, would like to learn a new skill to impress all your friends & family, or just enhance your existing skills making flowers & foliage that look as realistic as the real ones!

So whatever your skill level, I am looking forward to meeting & tutoring you.
