Multi Week Courses

I run several Multi week courses each term which are suitable for total beginners or those with some experience. I tailor the course to meet your skill level and set at least 3 projects a term but usually you’ll get to complete more than 3 pieces. I’ll set the projects before the term starts but these can be discussed at the start of the course and I’m always happy for you to work on your own projects and offer my support.
