Learner on an Adult and Child Silver Jewellery Making course
On Saturday my 16.5 year old daughter and I attended a silversmithing workshop at Chesham. It was such a lovely day! We learned so much and had such a brilliant day. We really didn’t know what to expect. We were both SO happy with our experience and the rings we made. We would both LOVE to do more with the tutor. She is a great teacher, completely unflappable, patient and very well informed. Money well spent!
Thank you x
Learner on a Positive Pathways course
The whole set up at Bucks Adult Learning is superb. The relaxed atmosphere and the helpfulness of the staff and all the course tutors/assistants all helps towards an excellent learning environment.
Learner on a Stained and Fused Glass course
A hands-on practical course which allows you to learn techniques involved in stained and fused glass. Thoroughly enjoyable – with knowledgeable tutor and good company of other students.
Learner on a bespoke Floristry course
What a fabulous way to spend a day! Our tutor, Gill Booker, knew so much about her subject and had a warm and welcoming manner, putting everyone instantly at ease. To do a creative course with a group of friends was both informative and entertaining – we gained new skills and a shared experience which we look back on with with happy memories.
Learner on Watercolour course
The course was very good indeed. The tutor spent considerable time with each learner, not only guiding them, but referring to artists with specific styles where relevant and showing them relevant pictures to motivate them. I had become a little disenchanted with my own artwork and I have returned to my own projects with increased interest and new knowledge. Finally, what a treat to study at such a venue as Waddesdon Manor.
Learner on Advanced Painting course
A huge learning experience, putting into practice all learnt techniques of painting. A very supportive enthusiastic tutor and a very cohesive class. A highlight of my week!
