"The day gave me the confidence and inspiration to resume etching again after many years."
"The workshop leaders were knowledgeable, approachable and had a great sense of humour. It was a thoroughly enjoyable weekend."
"I really enjoyed the course, and will be applying to become a member later this year, so I can use the facilities."
"fabulous course - the best I have ever attended!"
