Art classes with Lorraine Auton

I just wanted to say how much we have enjoyed your classes. Your encouragement and guidance has been just what I needed.... inspiring one 'to do better'.

A great group of like-minded people which contributed to the enjoyment of the evenings, not forgetting the welcome cuppa and chats.
