Just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you so much for hosting the Visual Arts workshop today. Everything was beautifully organised and you and your team were all so helpful and accommodating – even for last minute flip chart needs!  I know everyone thoroughly enjoyed it and lots were planning to come back and enjoy a proper visit to the art space and the grounds – I know I am!
