Feedback from club members

"Just a note to say how much I appreciate all the effort and time that goes into our sessions. Just carrying the flasks for us is one example, let alone all the buying and carrying of materials."

"Dad has missed classes immensely. Since I found the class for him to attend he has been so happy with it. It gave him something outside of the care home environment that was really suitable for his interest in art making and meeting others with the same interests.”
