  1. Jayne Edmunds – Rugby

    I didn’t class myself as a beginner until I did this class. Lynda is brilliant and I’ve learnt so much. I was very fortunate to be one of only 2 students on this class so I appreciate we covered far more than the content described. Having been on many classes elsewhere, I was amazed by the studio. I have to say this was the most professional and well stocked establishment I’ve had the pleasure to attend. Lynda was the most patient and knowledgeable tutor I’ve ever had. It was fun but constructive. I loved Lynda’s enthusiasm and approach and finally I’ve found a tutor who will criticise my work and aid in making it better. Brilliant. Ill be back for a 1-2-1 next month and have already signed up for the Master Diploma course
