‘Just a quick email to say “thank you” for a lovely day in your studio. Your style of teaching is relaxed and very informative at the same time. I am going to frame one or two of my prints from the day and the one I bought from you. You have wetted my appetite to get cracking on progressing with art.’

“Just a note to thank you for the workshop on Saturday. I thoroughly enjoyed it and valued being able to see and try out the range of equipment available. I am now going to get myself some oil-based inks and paper from either Intaglio or the place that you mentioned in Knebworth, and will then be in contact to try to arrange a date to come over and do some printing”.
