As a total novice, not just to Lino printing but all art since school, I was a little nervous but was soon out at ease by the friendly welcome from Lee and my co course members.
The tuition was just at the right level, with my instruction being less complex than others but nonetheless I learnt so much in the day that I am enthused to continue!
A really enjoyable course, with lovely people and a recognisable landscape at the end. Thoroughly recommended.

Response from Lee Wright Artist:

Glad you enjoyed the day Andy. Great to meet you and fabulous first print!

Brilliant day in a lovely venue. Lee is a great tutor, always on hand but giving space and time to allow participants to get hands on experience. The whole day was warm and friendly in lovely company and I learnt a lot about simplifying designs, not over complicating composition, mixing colours, and loads of other really helpful and useful tips. I can’t wait to put these into practise at home.

They were great prints Christine, well done! Pleased you really enjoyed the workshop.

Just the sort of day I needed. what is lovely about Lee is that he seems to know intuitively when to let you get on with things and when to offer help and advice. Great tips right throughout the process and I came away having learned loads! Lovely atmosphere too. Thank you Lee.

Response from Lee Wright Artist:

Thanks Margaret. So pleased you had a great day...and what beautiful prints you made!

I really enjoyed my day with Lee creating a winter landscape lino print. I had a little bit of experience with print making but I still learnt so much from Lee – especially about colours, simplifying a landscape to suit a lino print and the reduction technique – and was amazed that I managed to create a three layer lino print in one day. And, more importantly, it looked like the River Wye landscape I was trying to emulate! Lee's calm and confident manner was infectious and he effortlessly moved around the group supporting each person either with a positive comment or some hands-on assistance. It was lovely spending time learning, creating and chatting with a friendly and supportive group of people. From seeing everyone's seemingly not too impressive first printed layer it was amazing to watch each individual lino print landscape come to life as the next two layers were added. A hugely inspiring day.
