|Workshop participants, in a Guernsey garden|
|an unusual watercolour demo!|
A workshop session can be really rewarding - challenging - exciting - enlightening - action-packed - but it can also be exhausting, overwhelming, frustrating, sometimes even downright upsetting - you need to be mentally prepared for anything. You may go home filled with new ideas and renewed vigour and enthusiasm, or there is a small chance you may go home feeling rather shattered and despondent - it can happen. BUT it is a risk worth taking - the chances are really good that you will have had the most marvellous, eye-opening experience - suddenly new doors may have opened for you. Your notes will prove useful in the days and years to come, and the experience will certainly have enriched your life.
