Testimonial

Mitt Nathwani - Oxford

I am delighted with this course!

I was interested in this course initially as a parent looking for new fun ways to entertain the kids. I thought balloon modelling would also be a fun skill to add to my CV!

That said, I didn't go into the course with huge expectations beyond what you might learn in online videos, but I was wrong!

The course covered business and marketing aspects that I wasn't really anticipating and will no doubt prove to be priceless in my day-to-day job, let alone if I decide to add balloon modelling to my career in some way. Add to this the clear on-screen instructions for what can be quite a fiddly subject, I must say that I am delighted with this course!
