A lovely afternoon. Claire explained everything so carefully and clearly and I was so happy with the cards I made!

Claire was very welcoming, calm and very clear in her teaching approach, and very encouraging of everyone in the class.
The venue was beautiful - a lovely old barn - that felt very arty crafty.
Lovely to be able to take cards home that we'd created.
Thank you for a lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

A great course in lino-cutting. Great instruction, guidance, advice and support meaning all of the attendees produced lovely cards they were proud of. I will definitely be coming again. Super cake too!

Claire is inspirational - from the moment you walk into her studio, you are surrounded by her incredible work and her calm, warm energy. Claire was so encouraging and patient, and through her gentle support and guidance I was able to produce a piece of work I was thrilled with, and which was completely my own. I entered the course a complete beginner and left with the confidence and enthusiasm to carry on independently. What a wonderful way to spend an afternoon!

Not only is Claire a hugely talented artist but she has the patience to encourage complete novices to complete very satisfying pieces of work. She provides advice and guidance but never "takes over" so the end result is all your own work! We will definitely carry on!

A wonderful afternoon with Claire learning to make Lino cuts. She was such a lovely host and excellent teacher. In an afternoon we were about to print cards from our work which I thought wonderful.
I’d love to go again if I get the chance

Claire is a lovely person with a knowledgeable, gentle and encouraging teaching style. Beautiful location & inspiring workspace with excellent tools to create your own masterpiece (plus great catering with continous tea coffee & drinks available). I am definitely looking forward to attending another workshop. I would highly recommend this workshop to anyone interested in trying a new art form or finding out more about linocut whatever your artistic or creative ability. From simple to incredibly intricate designs, everyone can create a fabulous piece of individual art.

What a totally absorbing and satisfying afternoon! Claire has created a wonderfully calm, creative environment for the lino cutting and printing course, and she walked us through the processes clearly with no pressure at any point. I really appreciated her advice throughout and also the fact that she allowed us to all create our lino blocks and prints 100% ourselves. The variety of end results that the 5 of us on the course created showed how wonderfully individual this is as a craft, and it has certainly inspired me to have a go making more creations at home. I’ll certainly be back for another course with Claire.
