This was a fantastic course. Taking place in Linda's beautiful, state of the art studio, it was a brilliant and informative two days, during which time Linda helped me approach one particular aspect of linocut making I'd been hoping to improve on for a while. Linda's own work is extremely impressive and it was a real joy to be instructed by her.
The class size was small, which meant she was available to offer guidance throughout, and she did a fantastic job of providing tips and advice which helped me to shape and improve the piece I was working on. She was also brilliant at arranging some of the more time-consuming elements of printmaking (page setup etc) so that most of our time could be spent on cutting and printing; we picked up tips on presentation from her as we went. Delicious lunches and cake breaks topped everything off!
I would recommend this course very highly, to beginners and those who have done printmaking before.
This course is brilliant! Linda is an inspirational and excellent teacher. No time is wasted with lots of explanation, it's very much hands on and get going, learning as you go along which I really liked. I was amazed by the professional finish of my prints and Linda's help and suggestions to improve my idea were invaluable. And the lovely homemade lunch and cake were fabulous, I will certainly be returning and I would whole heartedly recommend this course, whatever your level of skill or experience.
I've just completed the 2 day course with Linda, which was a special birthday gift from my brother. It was a wonderful experience - relaxed and yet highly productive.
Linda is a great teacher - she shows you a technique but then You practice it on your work .This is in contrast to other courses where tutors actually work on Your pieces!
The Studio is amazing as are the lunches / coffee!!
I travelled over 200 miles to attend this course - it was worth it.
Excellent - thanks Linda, I'll be back!!!
I am ready to go on my 4th course at Linda's workshop. Very worthwhile and enjoyable. Anyone interested in linocut should seriously consider coming here.
