This was wonderful class! Thoroughly enjoyed the weekend and would definitely go to other classes by Jenny! I had been wanting to do something like this for a while but had never found anything quite right so this was a real find. I had never made puppets or anything like that but the class was suitable for both beginners and people with more related experience. The class size is small so everyone gets the support they need and Jenny is well experienced in the industry and is very knowledgable about her art. Nice easy-going atmosphere and all round a very inspiring couple of days indeed.

Jennifer is a great instructor, provides all materials required, to build a foam and latex model from scratch. This was a really well run course, where we learned and achieved a lot in two days. Highly recommend!
