Some comments received.....

June - Had an amazing weekend Painting Workshop with such a talented Artist & in a fantastic setting at ‪#‎TheHeightsHotel‬ - breakfast, lunch & teatime cake were delicious. Phenomenal views & Podi’s mural at the entrance to the hotel is a splendid rendition of Portland. Recommend this workshop for sure to anyone interested - covered all sorts of medium and techniques - learnt so much & found it was beginning to flow. Met wonderful people from Portland as well as Sutton Coldfield & High Wycombe all different ages - stimulating & interesting. Thank you Podi -Mona
