“A brilliant course so clearly and patiently taught. Such a lovely few days and plenty to work with after the course. Totally inspiring!” – Patricia Gidney (UK) January 2017 Persian Patterns course participant

My words are truly inadequate to express the way I feel about the Course, your work, your studio … within seconds of walking through the door my eyes welled up with tears of utter heartfelt Joy so struck by the beauty, grace & feeling contained within the images that adorned the walls.

It felt like a coming home, something in me recognised something in them & it felt like coming home. 

It’s been a mind blowing & momentous 3 days of discovery, initiation & finding my way back into a world so expansive yet containing filled with love, grace, spiritual connection & beauty … I cannot believe how much I’ve discovered not only about myself but about the universe all contained within these works each one a portal of information within which one can choose to enter or observe while constructing. Extraordinary, inspiring …  I truly cannot wait until I return. – Sara Hall (UK) June 2019 SAOG Studios Persian Patterns course participant​
