    Excellent! Never used pastels before. Total beginner but Sue showed me how I could achieve a really good picture and I am not an artist. I now love it and will definitely do more. Sue follows up with lots of help and advice with a fantastic guide and other free tutorials. Fabulous day. I had a real sense of achievement and was proud to show off my work when I got home.

    I have always told myself that I’m not an artist, but I’ve always enjoyed doodling and having a go. I did Sue’s beginners workshop; I was really looking forward to it but happily told friends that I wasn’t expecting to be able to do the intended final piece.
    Well, Sue makes magic happen! Not only did I create a tiger’s eye, I love it! It’s beautiful! I made art!
    The class was relaxed, calming, and ever so enjoyable, and I highly recommend it!

    I found Sue’s Beginners Workshop super value not only in monetary terms, but the high level of tuition provided to all participants. This enabled everyone to achieve a number of seascapes and a tiger’s eye portrait to take away with them.
    I gained much pleasure from the course and each stage was fully explained. I feel invigorated to retry the tiger’s eye again and certainly have no hesitation in recommending Sue’s courses which are run in a friendly, fun and professional manner.

    You can read all about the different types of paper and qualities of pastels but there is nothing like being led through them by an expert and having the opportunity to try them all out and feel and see the difference. Probably saved me a fortune in wasted purchases! Sue is a great instructor and this was a well thought-out and very enjoyable day’s introduction. I never expected to achieve the results I did with the tiger’s eye project. Just downloading my next project from Sue’s excellent website!

    I signed up for this workshop having never used pastels. Thanks to Sue’s step by step instructions and encouragement,I managed to produce a number of seascapes and a tigers eye which I was really pleased with. The workshop was very relaxed,you don’t even have to be able to draw. I really enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone.
