Here's what other people said...

What did you enjoy most about the day?


”Everything. Small friendly group. Plenty of 1:1 tuition. Learning techniques of linocutting. Getting to grips with ink! Creating my own unique picture.”

"I enjoyed it all. Most of all I enjoyed the surprise of how the print turned out! It was great to learn how to do this technique in such a friendly and relaxed environment. Brilliant Saturday! "


"Total package! Excellent instructions, suggestions and help when needed but the freedom to choose your own subject matter if you wanted to."

“The informative and relaxed atmosphere of the day. No pressure if you didn’t feel you art an artistic person.” 

”I loved the whole processing meeting new like minded people. Michelle’s enthusiasm was infectious.”

"Feeling of satisfaction with finished product, guidance throughout each stage, relaxed atmosphere, working at own pace, not rushed, expert advice."

“Michelle’s excellent way of explaining each stage. Producing more than one print and a chance to be creative again and the cake was great!”

“Everything. Michelle’s easy, relaxed teaching style. Having something finished at the end.”

‘“I enjoyed the immersion in creativity.”

“I loved designing one thing, something I don’t normally have time to do.”
