“Alison created a wonderful workshop based around the theme of recycling. She had a lovely manner with the children. She came prepared and was happy to liaise to make sure everything went to plan. The end result was a lovely 3D display in our main Reception area.” - St Winifred’s Catholic Primary School

“Alison was a huge hit with our girls. She had all her resources with her (old DVD cases, paper, decorations for spoons & forks to make characters). She explained all the instructions very clearly for the girls to understand – all were on task for the entire workshop. They loved adding in their own ways to personalise their artworks. The whole day ran really smoothly thanks to Alison’s project being pitched at the right level & duration. Children and adults love her work. She made it look easy!” - Bute House Prep School for Girls
