"A great day. Very well organised and in beautiful surroundings. It was great fun and I was really happy with the techniques and the teaching. I would happily attend more courses here and can recommend it."

Mattie Silman reviewed: Create with a Gel Printing Plate - Mono Printing Without a Press

"Alison was very accommodating as I joined the course at the very last minute. It was a fun day and it gave me what I wanted to know about using the gel plate for printing. Now I have some ideas and enough to go and have a play on my own and see where it takes me. Thank you Alison."

Blooming Designs - Art in the Barn responded:

"Dear Mattie, It was lovely to meet you yesterday and I am glad you enjoyed the day. Gel plate is a really fun experimental process, one that you can lose yourself in for hours so I hope that you get a chance to explore it and I look forward to seeing where it takes you! Good luck . Alison"

"The venue is lovely and very comfortable and fit for purpose. It’s surrounded by beautiful countryside and farmland. Alison was friendly and relaxed. She explained the tasks well and had displayed some inspirational examples of work. It was great to try out a variety of different techniques and materials experimenting with inks, pastels mark making and composition. Thank you for a lovely day !!"

Lou Bamber reviewed: From the garden: Still life with a mixed media approach

"This was a really enjoyable course - Alison is relaxed and positive and makes creativity fun! There was no pressure to produce a masterpiece; the emphasis was on experimentation and being encouraged to challenge your way of working. The location is stunning - a huge barn in the middle of the countryside. I would highly recommend these courses. "

Blooming Designs - Art in the Barn responded:

"Dear Lou, Thank you for taking the time to review the workshop. It was great to work with you , you had a very busy day and produced lots of lovely work ! These workshops are a great opportunity to try new ideas and techniques and to experiment without the pressure to produce an end piece of work . I hope this has given you the inspiration to carry on at home. Happy painting ! Best wishes Alison"
