I am absolutely thrilled to have attended Joanne's training course on plaster and polish effects.. I flew in specially for this class from India and must say that I certainly did not regret it..
Jo has a vibrant personality and this reflects in the ease with which she teaches the students.. I must say that for a complete beginner like me she was the most patient teacher and her easy style of teaching ensured that I picked up the technique without much trouble..
Completely recommend thee classes for anyone wanting to learn some absolutely innovative techniques ( both for beginners and professionals).
I will certainly try and attend some of her other classes as well..

I just wanted to say Thank you for such a Fantastic course today (paint effects 1).
I learnt a lot and wish I had done this a long time ago.
I look forward to practising (practice makes perfect!!) and attending your paint effects 2 and marbling courses but then again I'll more than likely do all of your courses as I found today's course to be extremely well put together and delivered as well as outstanding value for money.
It goes without saying that I will highly recommend you to all.

I was looking into doing wood graining and marbling courses to broaden my skills base as a painter and decorator, when I happened upon Joanne's website.
The examples of her work looked impressive and the course prices were very reasonable, so I decided to give her a call.
I needed to do the Paint Effects 1 course first, which If I'm honest, I saw more as just a means of getting onto the other courses. I had always viewed paint effects as being a bit dated and wacky. However I am happy to say Joanne completely changed my mind!
I came away, really exited at the endless possibilities there were, and how with good choice of colour, just how funky and modern these techniques could be.
Joanne is a friendly, fun and enthusiastic teacher, and I can't wait for the next course!

Thanks for a great weekend - the learning was great and also the atmosphere was fun and lively, which added to it. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and felt that it was time and energy well spent.
Your positive, open and generous way of presenting set a really good example and put everyone at ease - ready to make the best of what you were sharing and to enjoy the process.

“Thank you very much for the two day polished plaster training courses at Acava Studios.
I very much enjoyed learning about the products and techniques involved in applying them to create such fantastic finishes. Everybody has been most impressed with the sample boards that I produced.
You were a great teacher and the whole two days was of great benefit and really good fun.
Please keep in touch and let me know of any other courses in the future that you are running, and that I might benefit from.”
Roger Lanaway, Painter and Decorator, London
I have completed all of Joanne's courses this year (2012) and I feel completely happy and satisfied that I learnt what I wanted to.
I feel confident I can pursue my dream career as a specialist decorator and put it all in to practice now.
Joanne's courses are friendly and fun and I could not think of a better way to enjoy my Saturdays. Also, along the way I met some lovely people who are like minded and share similar interests in specialist decorating, of all ages and sexes, from professional decorators and plasterers, to D.I.Y enthusiasts.
Thank you Joanne for everything, I hope you create some new courses for next year.

“The Venetian polished plaster courses are great, Joanne is a fast, effective, informed professional who teaches an incredible decorating process so competently that in 2 days I felt completely confident of being able to reproduce all the Venetian plaster effects and could truly understand the amazing possibilities.
I left with a huge range of samples, and full of inspiration.
A dream course for anyone interested in this incredible process.”
