““‘Yes the weekend was fab - very inspiring. Marissa was great and managed to teach us all so much.’ ‘I just wanted to say a big thank you for the course last weekend. Marissa was brilliant and I have now mastered the ribber, well I am now able to set it up and make ribs I am sure there are lots more things I can do in time. She also showed us some great new techniques for edges etc. It was great being part of a small group and we all got on really well. I will return and take part in another beyond the basics course as I am sure I will learn lots more. It was a great weekend and please pass on my thanks to Marissa and I look forward to returning.’ ‘I wanted to say what a brill totally inspiring couple of days I had at the April workshop with the others and Marissa, brill teacher. I will be looking out to attend again if the opportunity arises.’ ””
