How can I book?
You can either call the ColourWheel office on 01628 676979 or book through the website: Book a Course
What if I miss a lesson?
This is not a problem, the teacher will make sure that you are don’t miss any skills and techniques and work with you to make sure you are on track with the rest of the curriculum. In addition we invite you back to the next course to make up any lessons you missed with no charge.
Once I have completed the course can I book again?
Yes! We would love you to book another course, in fact lots of people do. Our curriculum allows our teachers to work on different projects with you for each course so you will never have the same project twice. If you have previously attended a course the projects designed for you will aim to stretch and improve your skills. Our lessons are three hours long which allows ample time for your teacher to work with you to develop and hone the skills you have learned so that you can make significant progress during further courses.
