“The Botanic Garden was an inspirational setting for this course, and the teaching rooms were in a lovely location with good facilities. Laura was a really good, helpful teacher, and explained each stage as we went along, so it didn’t seem a difficult task at all. I had never done anything like this before and I am still surprised that I managed to create what I did!”
