We had the most wonderful morning. Jane, you made us all very comfortable with your serene nature. I loved that we could be imperfect in our work and be absolutely perfect in our sense of accomplishment! Can’t wait to join you again!!’

‘Thanks for a beautiful workshop Jane. I love all the small creative touches you gave – the handmade cards, the simple exercises and tools. Your passion shines through and it was a joy to share the space with you. You’ve reminded me that being creative doesn’t have to be all serious and hard! … or perfect :). We all deserve to play. Thanks so much.’
Rita Riedel
‘I strongly connected to the making process and gained enormous benefit from being exposed to new concepts which will certainly give me more confidence in front of the easel and will help me develop my creativity in a way that I never thought possible. You made me realise that an idealistic way of painting has been holding me back for so long.’
