Reviews from some of my students and their parents:

"Me and my daughter lilly-Rose have attended one of kerri-Ann's works shops. It was supposed to be for lilly but I couldn't help but join in. Lilly learnt how arrange some dried flowers and make them into a picture. One she was so proud of and gave to her grandma for her birthday. Kerri Ann was so helpful and gave lilly some great ideas. Lilly has now got another passion  her new hobby.  Dried flower arranging. I would recommend any of kerri Ann's workshops for adults or children. Kerri  is full of so many  inspiring ideas and her knowledge of art and creativity is amazing."
