Here's some feedback from the artists who attended Lorraine's previous workshop . . .

" Just a note to say how much I enjoyed Sunday's class. My wife and friends were very impressed with the result. I feel a lot more confident at tackling skies now."

" Thoroughly enjoyed the whole thing, so big thanks to Lorraine for the inspiration "

" Thank you for a brilliant day. Loved every minute of it and lunch was wonderful too. "

Great news! Some of Lorraine and Tony's work is also available at The Norwich Art Shop, 75 Upper St Giles, Norwich.
