When you book into any kind of lesson, there has to be some level of expectation on the part of the buying student and the tutor – it’s no good them coming to a cookery course for example, assuming that the student has even the first idea about the subject. Presenting the lesson in a format that will please all the candidates is often a chancy thing, some prefer to be led by the hand, item by item and then be astounded by the brilliance of the finished product. Other folk like to have a hint, just the mearest nodding in the right direction, and then be left to fathom out some of the later parts themselves. The results are not always the principle object here – simply the enjoyment of finding out their strengths, weaknesses and fundamentally, their limitations! Cookery workshops are a great way to meet like minded folk too.
