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
Thanks for the notes. I really enjoyed Saturday too, it was fascinating exploring the two different collagraph techniques and lovely to work with such a nice group of people and with such a supportive tutor! 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
