    Ella is such a calm and fun person… and this is reflected in her workshops. With her expertise and style, she eases you through a number of techniques for drawing, painting and shading. A fabulous, no pressure, two day workshop and you will be amazed at what you can achieve. Thank you Alex for being the ‘Hostess with the Mostest’ .. and of course thank you Ella – looking forward to next time xxx
