Hollie has a natural affinity in working with children of all ages and her enthusiasm is boundless. I am delighted that she is to offer classes again and my daughter is eagerly looking forward to spending many more happy years with Hollie, learning, creating and enjoying the pleasure of her company.”   Deborah Rainham, parent of student
