"Being part of the Programme was truly amazing. It’s exceeded all expectations. I’ve learnt from a wealth of fantastic masterclasses, had free access to a beautiful space to work from everyday and the best part is that I’ve met the most amazing people – those on the programme and around it. What an incredible 6 months it’s been! I feel so lucky to have had this opportunity."
