“Thank you so much for a lovely day on Saturday. It was great fun learning a new technique and meeting other people in the very friendly and relaxed atmosphere of the studio. I came away full of ideas and am looking forward to the Lino printing and etching workshops”. J Povey 6.10. 14
“it was fascinating exploring the two different collograph techniques and lovely to work with such a nice group of people and with such a supportive tutor! the fact that you always seem to keep one eye on the time so that you make sure that we complete all the stages of a print process and have a bit of time to experiment so that we go away with an exciting pile of prints is great – it gives a real sense of achievement. Looking forward to next year’s more detailed programme! ” A. Butler 10.10. 14
“I have thoroughly enjoyed both my workshops so far and I am looking forward to the Lino Print & Dry Point Etching. It is great to learn new techniques and very exciting to see the results after turning the big wheel on the press. Good value especially if you book all four workshops.” Valerie 09/10/14
