I teach everyone individually so the classes are suitable for all levels of experience but you do need a project to work on. Ideas for projects are on
the What you need for the classes page
The last 5/10 minutes of both the morning and afternoon will be time for you to show your project and progress to the rest of the group
and also for any relevant theories to be discussed.
There is usually coffee, tea and especially nice biscuits available free throughout the sessions so you can break and revive whenever you
However to to COVID we may not have access to the kitchen so may not be able to provide hot drinks
If you are staying for the full day you will need to bring
your own packed lunch
The sessions run from 10 - 4.30 and you can sign up for a half day, whole day. one and a half days or two days.
