Want to stay a little longer?

After all, why wouldn't you..... First take a little trip for R&R to the Perhentian Islands, Redang or Tioman - where you'll find sands whiter and waters bluer than anywhere you've ever seen.  Then, join us for a an additional month or three with our studio membership options where you can just hang out in our beautiful studio and work on your own creations.

Feel like you need a little extra support?

if you do decide to take a little studio time to yourself with our membership option, but get a little stuck then you can book in for half day or full day private classes with Lucy.  If you want to save a little money, book in for a private class with a friend - it's still the same price!

Accommodation

Kuala Lumpur is an easy to navigate city, with accomodation available for every budget - we recommend getting accommodation through Airbnb - the apartments Nadi Bangsar, and Suasana Bangsar are just a few minutes walk from our studio in one direction and a few minutes to the train in the other.  For those from out of town, we highly recommend staying within walking distance from the studio, there are lots of restaurants, bars and eateries of every kind very close to the studio and it's an easy base from which to explore the rest of KL.
