A lovely morning, friendly and welcoming atmosphere and a very stimulating talk. I really enjoyed myself and it will give me a lot to think about. A fantastic venue as well!

Alison, Smartphone Photography – March 2022
Thank you very much indeed for the wonderful morning. It was so enjoyable and inspiring! Julia was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic, it was impossible to leave without feeling ready to learn more about gardening and growing edible things. You were the perfect host as always and made us feel so welcome.
Norma, Vegetable Gardening Workshop – September 2020
Thank you so much for this morning, I really enjoyed myself. You had put so much thought into getting everything to be COVID compliment, which I’m sure is all extra work. Julia ran the course brilliantly, she was so informative and helpful, even to a complete novice like myself. I’m really looking forward to putting into practice all of the things we covered.
Debbie, Vegetable Gardening Workshop – September 2020
I had such a good time today. Julia is clearly a very talented lady she makes gardening sound so effortless and I loved her ‘ have a go’ attitude. Very inspiring.
Wendy, Vegetable Gardening Workshop – September 2020
5 stars! Charlotte is very welcoming and Jenny is a fountain of knowledge. It was great to learn just what I can do with my phone camera and the editing software. Very excited to try out all the tips. Amazing cake and venue too!
Tracey, Smart Phone Photography Workshop – February 2020
I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed your Smartphone Photography class just before Christmas. I am so glad it inspired me to get a new phone, and it was perfect timing as I didn’t have to read the manual after you taught me everything. It sinks in so much better when someone teaches you in person and you get to practice straight away.

Studio Portobello is comfortable and welcome environment to come and study. Kat Shayler was a great teacher – covering a lot of ground in a short period of time without swamping any of us, and tailoring her advice to the individual needs of all her students. Looking forward to putting everything I have learned into practice
Jane, Instagram for Business – November 2018
Great Morning with lovely host Charlotte. Showing and guiding us all through some fascinating ideas and giving expert advice. Really enjoyed it and love to learn more
Katrina, Interior Design Basics – March 2018
What an excellent workshop, I’m really looking forward to getting off ‘auto’ mode and taking control of my photos
Michelle, Beginners’ Digital Photography – October 2017
Thought that I’d send a quick email to say very many thanks. I found it REALLY useful – suddenly those camera buttons aren’t so much of a mystery…. but also overwhelming (in a good way). Now I just need to get out and have a go experimenting a bit. A new camera might also be heading up the wish list!
Emma, Beginners’ Digital Photography – October 2017
It was a fantastic day, very informative and easy to understand and would love to attend a follow up course. Lovely to meet everyone
Anna, Beginners’ Digital Photography – October 2017
An excellent course – informative, relevant and well organised – all in the beautiful surroundings of Studio Portobello. The refreshments were delicious too!
Polly, Fabulous Foods for Women’s Health, 40 & Beyond – October 2017
I wasn’t sure what to expect from this course as for me photography is currently just an interest, but it was just as informative as it was practical. I’ve had a DSLR for nearly 7 months and learnt more within the 3 hours with Jenny than I had the whole time of owning my camera! We had little practical task where we put the skills we’d learnt to the test. Jenny was great at giving an informative power point and being able to give everyone help one to one as the group size was manageable. I would definitely recommend if there’s any more in the future. Charlotte was a great host, and has a lovely business idea putting these courses on at her own home. We even got little goodie bags which was a nice touch! If another course appeals to me I wouldn’t hesitate to book again.
Jasmine, Photography Workshop – September 2017
Lovely to meet you today – thank you again – a beautiful venue for the course!
Richard, Photography Workshop – September 2017
I really enjoyed the lesson, which went incredibly quickly, and feel I finally have a better understanding of my camera to use it off automatic!
Sue, Photography Workshop – September 2017
What a lovely way to spend a few hours! Katrina guided us calmly through the morning and ensured we left proudly brandishing our handmade lampshades. Thank you for arranging a fantastic course Charlotte and for the delicious cakes and tea and coffee to keep us going. I will be back.
Clare, Lampshade Making Course – May 2017
What a lovely way to spend a Tuesday morning! Lovely Welcome. Lovely to meet new faces.Tea Coffee and scrumptious cakes. Then into a beautiful room.
