“Lovely way to fill an evening”

“Oil painting at the Kingfisher Cafe. Lovely way to fill an evening and lovely venue. As an absolute beginner I had no expectations but after just four sessions I came away from the course with a fantastic looking oil painting of a Highland cow which looks like a cow and will be given a prime spot in my house.”

“I’ll definitely be back!”

“I did a Christmas Lino Printing workshop with Gemma. Gemma is an excellent teacher because she’s calm, organised and very encouraging. The materials were all provided, the venue (Arnos Vale) really lovely (great lunch and coffee) and I am thrilled with the results of printing. I’ll definitely be back!”

“I can’t wait for the next course”

“I have just done the watercolour course May 2017 at the Kingfisher cafe fishponds. This was for me the best course at that I’ve been on so far. I really took to watercolours and couldn’t wait to go every week Gemma is a fantastic teacher and has a lot of patience with me. I am a beginner as I’ve never done anything like this before. I can’t wait for the next course. I am even finding time to paint at home this is all thanks to Green Fox and Gemma."
