These videos are now free to watch!


I will continue making these videos but have been unable to produce a video a month as promised, so I am dropping the charge. All subscriptions have been cancelled. Thank you very much for your support. 


I hope you have learnt something from the 56 or so videos here and will continue looking in. I love producing them and will continue posting them here and shorter versions on Instagram.


Thanks again, Katrina
