ALISON'S WORK

OUR PAST STUDENTS

“I couldn’t recommend Alison Woolley enough. She not only generously shares her knowledge with clarity and care but does so with great patience too. I have learnt and assimilated so much thanks to her wonderful teaching style. In just a very few days she not only gave me, a complete novice, the skills to create pieces of art using traditional techniques but she also made them easy to comprehend and assimilate whilst also imparting a deep sense of the whole creative process. The two courses which I attended were in themselves wonderful, but the added bonus is that I can now see that the skills she taught us can be used in many other ways too - for all of this I am so grateful.”
