Thank you for a rewarding and interesting workshop on Sunday. While I knew the workshop would cover ground I had previously approached, your workshop gave me a new view on aspects of the tasks involved.

Excellent, the tutor covered all aspects of botanical illustration. Sufficient to be motivated & keen to continue. Created a safe learning environment. 

Excellent communication and individual tuition. Nice class size, not too big. Well organised and structured ‐ clear goals set

Stefan was informative, patient and very proficient in his art. Many thanks to Stefan, and I plan to continue learning watercolour.
