“Just wanted to say what a great weekend it's been - having fun back at Artison. You should be really proud of what you've achieved there - it's such an inspiring place which attracts both lovely teachers and interesting participants. The venue is perfect, catering superb (not good for the waistline!), it's great to see photos and examples of previous courses to tempt us (successfully) to return! The website is brilliant, great design, images etc, always up to date - far better than any other equivalent I've seen. Can't wait for my next visit! ”
