Marika was a kind, knowledgeable and attentive host. My daughter and I were very made very comfortable and felt relaxed and had fun during this experience even though we hadn’t worked with watercolors before. Marika’s works are amazing and she has plenty on display in her beautiful home. Thanks to her patient instruction, my daughter and I each created two lovely glass/watercolor necklaces. I even purchased a gorgeous print from her collection. Would 100% recommend!

I do not consider myself artsy but I was able to create some beautiful pieces that I will wear in the future. The space and the host invite individual artistic expression. It was a lovely experience

my friends and i book this class with Marika as part of our girls weekend. Marika's studio was easily accessible by bus, which was helpful. Marika is very talented and shared some techniques and made us all feel comfortable with whatever we capable of doing. i really dont feel that i have any specific artistic talent, but was still able to make 2 pieces that could be worn! i would recommend this experience for anyone wanting to have a quiet relaxed time- either with friends or individually.

Great introduction to the technical behavior of watercolor and its artistic possibilities, inspiring to see Marika's artwork in her studio and hallway. Marika's explanations and demonstrations were clear and easy to follow. Marika's watercolors, brushes, paper, and jewelry findings were all high quality.

Absolutely LOVED this experience... I had so much fun. After giving us all wonderful techniques to try and instructions we were given free reign to be as creative as we wished. No "right" or "wrong" ways to create. Everyone one left with their very own, unique master pieces! I would do this class again and again! Thanks Marika.

This was truly a wonderful and novel experience to tap into the inner creative in us! Marika did a wonderful job at making us feel welcome into her home, comfortable with whatever level of painting we come in with, and we left with some beautiful, one-of-a-kind jewelry. She knew her craft and was super sweet! Definitely something we would try again in the future.
