Which class should I choose?

Downend Farm Studio offers a comprehensive assortment of classes and workshops so it is sometimes a little daunting to know which one is the most suitable for your skill level or expectations.

The majority of us tend to be very modest when asked where we see ourselves, so we have tried very hard to make the description of each session as clear as we possibly can. We hope that the following descriptions will help you to make your choice but if you have any queries at all, please do not hesitate to get in touch prior to your booking.
