A really well planned workshop on fabric printing. All tools and fabric was provided, along with a leaflet to take home as a reminder. I learned a lot and feel ready to try the techniques at home to create my own fabric for soft furnishing in future. Claire was calm and reassuring and created a relaxed creative space. Such an enjoyable day.

Claire's lino cutting course was brilliant: educational, fun, creative, and supportive. The session was very well planned and organised. All the materials were laid out in the studio, with a full set of cutting implements for each of us, a range of printing presses and inks, and a generous supply of materials to print on. Claire also had files of materials to inspire us, which was really helpful, not to mention a lovely garden to stroll in.
It was amazing how much Claire fitted into the time: we went from total basics through to printing our own beautiful artworks in just a few hours, and yet nothing felt at all rushed. Claire created a friendly, welcoming atmosphere in the room, and made time to answer our questions and give us individual support and attention. By the end of the session, all of us had printed a stack of cards to take home, and we were all extremely pleased with what we'd produced. We also left with all the skills, confidence and information we'd need to continue linocutting at home. This is one of the best craft courses I've taken, and excellent value for money too. I wholeheartedly recommend it!

Claire is a dedicated and inspiring teacher; her course is thorough, fun and flexible. She carefully took us through all the processes and techniques and embraced each of our ideas. Everyone was excited by the printing and fabric created. It was a wonderful day in a delightful workshop with a great teacher.
We all want to do more printing!
Thank you, Claire
