I had a lot of fun on this class. As a complete beginner I was a little apprehensive at first but thanks to Irena's expert tuition I soon felt right at home. Looking forward to the next one!

Hi Everyone,

Makings and Musings was born out of the wish to create a space where everyone was welcome to join and create. A space where stress ebbs away and where mindspace is born. Irene is an illustrator from Holland who lives and works in London. Her work focusses on the human experience and she used watercolour, charcoal and inks in her work. In her classes she wants to show how relaxing it is to make something creative. In our classes we focus on the act of creating over the end result as you will learn so much more when…

This class was really great. I learnt how to use different techniques and materials to creat a drawing of an owl. The two hours flew by I was so absorbed and enjoying myself. The teacher is lovely and her instructions are clear and she comes around with really useful tips. I got home after class and showed my husband my drawing and he didn't believe that I did it. Just shows what quality teaching can help achieve. I will be back.

CLAss was excellent experience. Irena is really informative, talked us through the materials, gave enough guidance and tips but allowed us to be creative. Time just flew by as everyone was engrossed in their masterpieces. I havent drawn in 20 years and was never particularly talented but i felt completely at ease and created something which i was actually quite proud of. .i have never used charcoal before so it was a great experience to introduce myself to that. The class was small which is great as lots of opportunities to ask questions tips etc. Would definitely return for more classes.

What a fantastic class! Irene, our teacher, was fantastic - very attentive and instructive. There was a lovely light atmosphere and a mix of ability levels so no need to be worried if you are new to the arts. Irene walked us through the workings step by step and everyone in the class had a fantastic price of art work to take home at the end. Can’t wait to go to another one!
