Dear Sally Thanks very much for spending time with me on Saturday, it helped to get accustomed to the studio and practice using the press again. P. Bicknell

Hello Katherine, Sally I just wanted to say a big thank you to you both for putting on such a great workshop on Saturday. It was really enjoyable. I learnt a lot! and came away inspired by yours and the work of the others on the course, and with lots of ideas for things to try at home. Sally – when I’m ready I’d like to make use of the print facilities at The Forge for a day if that’s OK. Thanks again, P. Sawyer

Hi Sally, Thanks for a great print workshop yesterday. Really enjoyed it. Best wishes, F. Payne
