The teacher is very credible but she was very helpful during the class. But I wish she has gone through more of the tips and techniques as most of the time we were left drawing on our own.

We had a great time in a lovely venue, and left with a surprising impressive piece of art (I generally consider myself to have no artistic skills whatsoever!). A fun evening - recommended.

Super class....really enjoyed!

This was a fun and unusual class. As it is a small group, there is lots of individual attention and Polly is a great teacher! You do need some sort of basic drawing skills though - I was out of practice but it was fine. I think someone with no experience of drawing could struggle a little.

The class was great, a really entertaining course with very useful tips. The instructor was really nice and knew very well what she was talking about. M.Y.O is an amazing studio where everything screams hand made and crafts. Will definitely come again.

Really enjoyable class in a very creative environment! The studio was absolutely lovely, with a rainbow of inspiration. Polly was a great teacher with a good balance between whole group teaching, one to one guidance. She created a relaxing atmosphere and I definitely feel I can take my learning to make more maps.
