Teaching method/style?

<p><span style="font-size:16px">Initially, students are introduced to a new technique every session, to see what’s possible, what is of particular interest & how the different techniques work. Some students choose to experiment, particularly if they are planning to return. Others plan & realise more considered pieces supported by the tutor. The course is progressive and students returning after one term will be supported on a 1:1 basis. The course is based on 10/12 sessions, if attending for only 6 weeks the content will be simplified accordingly.</span></p>
