A message from Trish in her Christmas card to me 2019

Claire, just want to say a very big thankyou for the last few months.

I have learnt such a lot(and forgotten a lot) under your guidance. You have encouraged me to do things which I was afraid of, building my confidence week by week. I can’t tell you how much I love Tuesday afternoons and I’m looking forward to see what new things I can learn next year.

Thanks also to Arthur for all those perfect cups of tea .

Hope you have a wonderful Xmas see you next week Tx

Dear Claire
Thank you for such an enjoyable evening yesterday. Everyone was buzzing as
they left at the end, with plans to put what they had learnt into practice.

I have some oil pastels but will now be on the lookout for Crayola. Our out
door sessions start soon and that will be the ideal time to have a go.

You will be hearing from us when we plan next year's program, as a workshop
will be requested.

I hope your journey home was not too arduous.

Thank you both for coming.

Thank you so much for a really interesting and inspiring workshop.  One of the best we have had.  Hope you got home safely,

Best wishes


Hi Claire,

Thank you for an inspirational workshop. Feed back from the attendees was very,very positive.

They enjoyed the techniques and instruction and many felt it will help them to be more 'loose' with their work.

Several have said they would like the workshop on buildings, so we will be in contact in the New Year.

Thank you again for such an enjoyable, supportive and informative time.

Best wishes

    Hi Claire,

    The committee and those members attending  the workshop on 6th October at St Johns Church Hall, would sincerely like to thank you for the inspiring, interesting and thought provoking time we spent with you. All of the students went away enthused

  • and eager to try out the techniques and hopefully we will have some lovely pictures for our exhibition next year. Lots  of the members would love you to come back in the future to do another workshop so we hope to see you then.

    We all hope you both had a smooth journey home with your gorgeous dog and a restful Sunday.

    It was lovely to meet your partner  too and please thank him for his patience.

    With many thanks

    Anthea Arnot      ( Chairperson )
