 Class and workshop Information:
Refreshments are provided in all of Alison’s classes and workshops. Here at Downend Farm Studio we believe in decent coffee, tea in a teapot and proper biscuits. If you are coming for the day, we suggest you bring a packed lunch which can be kept in our fridge if it needs to remain cool.

Small class sizes ensure you will get personal attention while enjoying the camaraderie of a group. Alison is passionate about encouragement through experimentation, with a light-hearted approach.

Sign up for any classes or workshops and you will also receive:
- Advice from Alison C. Board outside of lesson time.
- Access to a wide range of royalty free images during your time at Downend Farm Studio, via paper copies and    exclusive Internet links.
- A supportive and encouraging environment to improve your hobby.
- An opportunity to join in social events and open studio days.
