Att det var så personligt och hemtrevligt samtidigt som det var lärorikt. Helt underbart med kombinationen egenbakad paj och kreativ miljö. :-)



Fantastisk dagskurs hos fina Barbro. Jättefin frukost och lunch serverades också. Lagom bra och informativ dag för nybörjare.



Vi kände oss otroligt välkomna och omhändertagna av Barbro i hennes lilla oas. En ljuvlig och kreativ dag som vi kommer bära med oss länge. /Victoria



Underbar kurs där man lärde sig otroligt mycket på bara en dag. Ser fram emot det färdiga resultatet 🤗⭐
