“This was a much needed, fascinating, informative and inspiring course. It should be offered as part of any art graduate course to help artists navigate the mysteries of the art world and it’s eco system.” Francesca, Insider’s Guide to London’s Art World

“A wonderful and fulfilling introduction to Medieval Illumination – we learnt both the modern and historic fundamentals needed to develop our own work after the course. Sarah was a very inspiring tutor who pushes us throughout the week to make the most of everything we learnt. I loved it!” Attendee, Medieval Painting and Manuscript Illumination

“The course was amazing and inspiring. I learned a lot in a short amount of time. The size of the class was perfect for individual and group instruction. I couldn’t be more pleased with the course.” Mina, Introduction to Ornamental Woodcarving

“Thomas is easily the best teacher I have experienced. He is calm, measured, has so much knowledge and expertise and shares all of his experience in a generous and informative way. Fantastic course!” Samantha, Observational Drawing: Focus on the Figure
