“Just wanted to say I thought the event was fantastic. Extremely good workshops, a brilliant location and your administration of it was fantastic! I will definitely be coming next year and making sure my friends who couldn’t make it this year come along too. I left buzzing with new information and ideas for my classes so many thanks to you, Alan and James for your hard work in putting it all together.” – Sarah  Taylor
