"The tutor, Sheila McDonald, was lovely, approachable, supportive and encouraging. The Workshop was very well stocked and fit for purpose. The other students in the course were lovely, and the food was excellent, as always. I left with an enamel necklace that I was really pleased with, and Sheila made it all feel so easy. Thank you.
