Comments from previous students:
At the risk of giving you an inflated head I think you are not just a fantastically creative garden designer and business woman but an excellent teacher to boot. I’m sure you must have some faults – perhaps you hide them well? Thanks very, very much again for your valuable help on the course. – Joan 2010
Thanks to Katrina for a fabulous drawing course!! My drawings have become so much more professional in just two days. Also she gave us so many tips for how she runs her business – it was invaluable!! Thank you!! – Angelique 2010
Having just spent the most inspirational and informative 2 day Sketch Up drawing course workshop with Katrina and Matt, I just wanted to say the biggest thank you. I’m a qualified teacher and I have to say this short course has been the best thing I’ve been lucky enough to attend… Garden Designers and students, it’s a must do… If there is one thing you invest time and energy into this year, it will be this! I have come home brimming with confidence, business ideas and knowledge / skills that would have taken months to gain from other course. Katrina put so much into two days teaching and I simply cannot believe what I’ve achieved. Thank you both soooooooooooooo much. – Sue 2012
