Thats gas Mrs Summer. I actually only asked Hubby for a gift voucher for there... It's something I have always wanted to do - the part time evening course... So would love to hear any feedback from anyone who has done a course here??? xx

Hi Mrs Summer, I was hoping to do the Module 1 course as I don't want to leave my job as such but would love to do it on a part time basis... And even if I don't work doing it, I would just love to learn more about styles / ideas etc.... March is very late - I was hoping to do one beginning in Jan or Feb... i guess Module 1 might be a bit different.... You should defo go for it - it's a good career... Hard enough nowadays to get a full time job in it but you could definitely start off by doing nixers and getting a good name for yourself...

Mrs Summer, True Module 2 does look very, very good, but like I said, it's more an interest for me... Also my sister in law is a MAC make up artist and always says that for some of her bigger nixers, she would love help and so it's more for my own good and then to maybe help her and do some close friends / family... I actually emailed them yesterday and they just replied to say there is a Module 1 starting end of Feb... Doesn't really suit as I am going away for 10 days in mid March... have asked for other alternatives... Do you need a particular set of brushes to start the course and what type etc?? Jeez!!!
