“I’m not a particularly creative person and have never done anything artistic like drawing or painting, so this was a whole new world for me – and I absolutely loved it!! I went with a couple of friends and we all had such a fantastic day. Jenny was so helpful, informative and understanding and there was absolutely no pressure by either Jenny or my classmates to come up with anything arty or spectacular, I just did what I felt comfortable doing. And the best part was that it gave me loads of confidence and I now have lots of my own ideas and I can’t wait to do another class! Thanks again Jenny, it was a thoroughly enjoyable day which I would recommend to EVERYONE! Cheers, Cherry”

“Jenny, you are a miracle worker!! I attended your fabulous limestone class last Sunday, and can’t believe how much I enjoyed myself and what I was able to produce. Even though I kept telling you I was not very creative, your calm persistent encouragement got me through, and my family are a little sceptical that I actually made it myself!
My sculpture has now found pride of place in our garden and gets lots of comments. Thankyou sooo much – I will see you again soon to do some Soapstone I think . . !!” (KP)

Hi Jenny, I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed the workshop on Saturday. It really was magical in that one gets lost in their own little world working on sculpture, but at the same time being with others enjoying the same activity. The magic happens when you look up and see that all of us have created so different, but so fantastic pieces of art that we could not have imagined we could do. It was a privilege to share your warmth and hospitality that you and your family extended to all of us. Thank you so much. Would you please forward me a copy of the photo you took of everyone’s sculptures at the end of the day. Kind regards (KV)

“ Hi Jenny,
I did your workshop on Saturday and had a great time. ( I made the female body figure ) I came home like a prep child waving my creation to everyone feeling very proud of myself. I cant wait to do another one! My husband loved it too and is dying to get me some more stone. Could you please tell me the name of the sealer I need to finish my sculpture as I forgot to write it down. Thank you so much for the opportunity to whet my creative juices again . Kind regards , and thank you again

Just wanted to tell you how terrific I found the workshop experience last Sunday. I was really quite emotional when I was telling my wife that evening how great her birthday present was, and how much creativity and energy you managed to generate from all of us on the day. Your infectious enthusiasm for an art-form that you have not only mastered (your work is brilliant) but obviously love is inspiring, and you infuse so much life and energy into each piece, it’s astounding. You are a gentle, caring and engaging teacher, and I will definitely be back (next time with A, she’d love the experience also I’m sure).
