positive review  Emma ran a great party for my daughter's 9th birthday on Sunday. She was really lovely to work with, and really good with the kids, who were all a bit shy. And we all loved learning how to draw cartoons. Thank you, Emma!

positive review  Emma did a great job hosting my son’s 6th birthday party during tier 3 restrictions. She was able to tailor the session to what Hugo wanted to learn to draw, and she facilitated the session enthusiastically and encouragingly. She sent me all the invites my guests needed in advance, and followed up with some fun screenshots and a video of Hugo’s friends singing him Happy Birthday. It was a great way to connect with his friends over the school holidays and as a parent it was the easiest party I’ve ever hosted! 😄 I’d highly recommend Emma!
