Cris Muldoon- sugar and porcelain workshop


I chose to study at Harrow College because it is convenient and easy to access by public transport. The people have been friendly and welcoming and I’ve enjoyed meeting new friends who share the same interests as me. I would definitely recommend the course. The teachers are very helpful and their knowledge is unbelievable. I think the teaching is of a very high standard. In the future I would like to pass on my knowledge through teaching or run a cake shop.
