What our open day visitors say

  • ‘The teacher was full of energy and enthusiasm and I was asked to do something challenging and out of my comfort zone. I came away inspired and happy.’

  • ‘The class has made me re-think some priorities in my life. I work in a pressurised environment and I really wanted to stretch the other side of my brain. The courses have inspired me to have a real long hard look at how I want to spend my time.’
