Attended morning Gelli Printing Workshop on morning of 18 May 2018 and thoroughly enjoyed the session for many reasons, many of which reinforce the views expressed by other Reviewers. The location is stunning with its own separate workshop full of inspiring pieces and all the tools, materials, equipment you could possibly need. It was fun and great to learn something new. Also very good value for money.
Armi has loads of experience to share and was very hospitable, an excellent tutor. She was well organised and had planned the session very well - she was encouraging and assisted with getting the creative juices flowing. Armi also providing helpful hand-outs and some cards/envelopes to take away for mounting our prints. Cake provided was also delicious.
Would definitely like to attend another course or organise a private session with some friends to do some more Gel Plate Printing.

I had a lovely informative afternoon at Armi’s beautiful studio. Despite having no previous experience I was always encouraged and enabled to produce several different prints. Armi supplied an enormous amount of materials, paints and papers. The afternoon was a delight especially with the added benefit of tea and homemade cake!

I had such a great time at Armi's workshop. The location is incredible and the workshop was really informative. We were greeted with tea's and coffee's and homemade cakes! I am interested to visit Armi's studio again for book-binding and intaglio printmaking. It's a great way to meet new people and explore a new place. Hampton Court is so lovely, you could spend the whole day there exploring and end up at No 5's Workshops for an afternoon of printmaking. Really great workshop!

I attended this class with my two nieces and nephew and we came away absolutely buzzing with excitement! It was a great class and Armi is a fantastic teacher. We learnt something really fun and new but also came away infused with confidence and full of ideas, plus handfuls of artwork to show off. Armi was incredibly welcoming and started off the lesson with a few drawing exorcises that got us going and gave us tonnes of confidence to start creating prints straight away. I've never done anything like this before and at the ripe old age of forty something discovered that I'm not actually so terrible at drawing after all! The young ones (teen's) had so much fun and declared it the 'best Christmas present ever'. My nephew showed his work to his art teacher at school who was most impressed and has been told that he can include it in his GCSE art portfolio. He has declared that printing his favourite medium. What more can I say? It was utterly brilliant, the setting was perfect and inspiring, Armi has the dream studio and it was an utter pleasure spending a few hours in there. Nothing compares to the generosity of those who share their knowledge and build confidence in other people; thank you Armi. :O)

A fantastic & inspiring workshop from Armi! We had a wonderful morning doing some initial drawing exercises followed by a well demonstrated lesson in creating mono prints. Armi showed us a small powerpoint & lots of samples to give us inspiration before we started creating! She has an extremely well stocked supply of exciting papers & ephemera that we were able to use in our designs. The studio is absolutely gorgeous, with generous space to work in. Combine all that with some amazing cake & coffee.....just a wonderful creative morning! Can't recommend it enough!

Response from no5workshops:thanks for your review on craft courses
What an inspiring, fantastic afternoon. I had so much fun and learned oodles about mono and gelli printing. Armi allows you to develop your print with as much or as little help as required. She is passionate about printing and it shows in her work and teaching. I'm utterly thrilled with the pieces I produced and I am looking forward to the Armi's art booklet stitching course.
The venue is as equally as inspiring as the course. Design-led, light and airy studio - simply stunning. And, the refreshments.... wow! Home-made cakes – artisan, delectable, moreish!

The setting for the course is inspirational and the workshop is very user friendly with all tools and materials readily at hand to use as needed. I attended a one day course on jelli printing. I had never seen this media being used before so I was a complete novice.
The course starts with a short powerpoint presentation covering the key aspects of the skill and then Armi shows everyone how to get started and you're off. The numbers were small enabling Armi to give all members of the course exactly what they need throughout the day. If you get stuck or need to be shown something again or if you need inspiration Armi is at hand to help you along.
By the end of the day I had produced some really lovely prints and also learnt how to stitch some of the prints into a little booklet. We stopped for a delicious lunch. In addition to what I learnt and took home (feeling very pleased with myself) I also met some lovely people who were on the course too. All in all a brilliant day out!
