Student Gallery

I've been running online courses since 2011 and never cease to be amazed by the enthusiasm and dedication of students and have to say that I've learned an awful lot too in that time! 

Since starting I have had many brilliant students and have asked their permission to showcase some of their beautiful work in this gallery. Hope you enjoy it as much as I've enjoyed being involved in the process!

Also, check out the student stories.
