Sophie is a very talented artist and a great teacher. I gave her class as a gift to my boyfriend and it was a really fun day out for both of us- the studios are in a great spot with a climbing wall next door and the cable car to take you across the river. Sophie's class was relaxed and we had a laugh and also created some amazing art work that we will treasure forever thank you Sophie !! This was such a good surprise gift I would recommend to anyone

I haven't had an art lesson in 17 years and I'm so glad I decided to book the Introduction to Oil Painting. In the past I've mainly focused on drawing, so it was great to try something new. Sophie is very warm and welcoming and puts you at ease straight away. All you inhibitions go out the door, because encourages you to be expressive and abstract. Sophie shared some great professional tips for oil painting, from the types of brushes to use, priming your canvas, building up images and making your picture feel cohesive. I would really recommend booking with Sophie to get your creative juices flowing.

I had a great time on the beginners abstract course. Sophie helped me to 'let go' and approach the painting in a different way. Really good. Thank you Sophie

Great class. Sophie is a relaxed and intuitive teacher who really helps you find your inner artist, even if you think you can't 'do' art. I'll definitely be booking another class with Sophie soon

I took part in an abstract art class with Sophie and I couldn't recommend her lessons enough. As a beginner I was very nervous but Sophie is an attentive, warm teacher who gave me the confidence to explore and express myself through art. She is also very knowledgeable on different art forms. I'm already looking forward to my next lesson.
