“The steady pace was ideal for a beginner. The techniques learned showed wonderful results from the simplest of ideas. Encouraging comments helped to build confidence. The best thing was seeing a half decent image emerge from my paper! The best things were meeting very interesting people, enjoying delicious food and being taught by such an enthusiastic tutor. A brilliant day!”
