    Great fun
    I originally signed up with the affordable art studio on the sculpture course and become hooked. Recently I completed the acrylic beginners course and loved it. Sue and Peter are lovely, they are great tutors and really help build your confidence. Looking forward to my next course.

    confidence building and fun
    I've been to affordable studio art many times over the years and every time I've loved it. I've received excellent tutoring and always left the studio with a professional standard of work that I've been delighted with. They helped me build my portfolio to get onto my model making degree and I'd still love to do more courses to keep up my motivation and learn new skills. You meet lovely people, get lots of tea and leave feeling great about yourself!

    Inspiring
    I've just completed my third art course at this small but extremely well run studio. Top quality tuition from Peter and Sue who really know their stuff as well as being very enthusiastic and endlessly patient! I have found all 3 courses hugely enjoyable and would definitely recommend any of the art courses on offer.

Two out of the three participants were confused about what we'd signed up for, but in the end we all learnt a lot, had great fun, and came away with work we were proud of. I will definitely be going back!

I have not yet attended the course but, from all I have learned, I think it will be a rewarding experience.

I’ve completed courses in all of the above at Affordable Art. I’ve had a fantastic time! I’ve learnt new skills, produced artwork better than I thought possible, met many interesting people all with the same passion and been totally motivated with the ever present encouragement from Sue and Pete!
Money well spent and more to come! Highly recommended!

I have just completed the Drawing for Beginners class. I was very anxious at the start with large doubts of my aptitude for this course. Pete put me at ease immediately and went through all initial stages to show me what I could do . I now feel confident , after three sessions that I can draw and . progress further.Pete has really inspired me for the future . Thank you .

Went on a six week sculpture course that was bought for me. Thought I would hate it but I absolutely love it, can’t go often enough and now go to painting a canvas day about 5 times a year as well. The atmosphere is just such good fun, thanks to Pete and Sue, we have fun as well as learn and make sculptures. There are always ideas from others in the group or from Pete and Sue but they do not force them on you, you can go with your ideas but sometimes it really helps when a new idea is thrown in.
Pete and Sue are such good teachers and such nice people, I defy anyone to attend and not enjoy it.

This was the second course I have booked at this studio. Pete and Sue made me really welcome and facilitated a relaxed but purposeful course. Pete the corse tutor provided a great balance of guidance and support while encouraging me to work independently and to explore new techniques. The studio has a great ambienceis in a tranquil location with the sound of the mill stream providing a great soundtrack. The time flew but I managed to produce multiple copies of five different linoblocks over the weekend. I left with a feeling of achievement and a head full of ideas to try to put into practice over the next couple of months before booking a return visit.

I spent a very enjoyable, relaxed and informative day printmaking at the studio. Peter is extremely knowledgeable and very willing to share his expertise both on the day and beforehand in helping me with the design, materials and preparation of the block. Thank you for your help and encouragement!
