A few of our student course reviews:
" Just completed a 3 day course in Glasgow with Marc and thoroughly enjoyed it. The course was really interesting and a lot of fun to take part in. Rachael was a brilliant tutor and handled the class perfectly. It was an unforgettable experience and well worth it."
Sandy Macdonald Google Reviews
The weekend course was brilliant, it felt relaxed but I learnt so much over the two days. Our teacher made the course fun and was enthusiastic for the subject. She was very approachable for help at any time. Taking part in the weekend helped put into practice what I have been learning in the online course, really recommend it.
