This is the fourth course I have been on at Art in the Barn and as usual I was not disappointed - it was excellent! Lots of fun, creativity and I’ve come back with lots of prints! The setting is beautiful, there are lots of materials and the course works for all levels and abilities, I can’t recommend them highly enough!

Response from Blooming Designs - Art in the Barn:

This was an excellent session. It was very clear that our teacher, Liz Wellby has come from a teaching background. Everything was extremely well organised and she stretched everyone to achieve their best, whether they were complete novices or experienced artists. A thoroughly enjoyable day in which I achieved lots of exciting work and I can’t wait to develop the skills I have learnt further. Thanks Liz.

Response from Blooming Designs - Art in the Barn:

Dear Susie,

Lovely to see you again and really appreciate you taking the time to do a review.
You produced some great work and we hope that you continue to explore this exciting process.

What a lovely day at the barn. Very well organised with hands on (socially distanced of course) instruction , encouragement and advice. The structure was well planned and we were supplied with everything we needed. I forgot my acrylic paint and was able to use theirs which was helpful.
We all went away at the end of the day with a huge amount of prints that we had created.

Response from Blooming Designs - Art in the Barn:

Dear Annabel,

Lovely to meet and work with you and hope that you can continue developing your printmaking skills.

We really appreciate you taking the time to review your day and we look forward to seeing you again in the future.

Oenone Hammersley - - #33048

The gel printing workshop was great fun and very intensive. We learned how to print and mask print also how to make stencils. It was all very interesting and useful for me. Liz and Alison are very friendly and helpful. They make sure that everyone is happy and has when they need. They guide you if it’s needed and serve hot drinks and chocolate biscuits to keep you going. What more could you want!

Response from Blooming Designs - Art in the Barn:

Dear Oenone,
Lovely to see you again, really pleased that you enjoyed the workshop and your day.
We hope it helps develop your painting ideas ; you produced some lovely work.

The gradual build up of the layers in preparation for a final picture, helped me to understand the processes and see the possibilities. A real learning experience with such enjoyment.
Thanks for a delightful day. I would strongly recommend doing this course.

I thoroughly enjoyed the day - Liz’s demonstrations and teaching were great and the one to one help made all the difference in trying to achieve each of the three projects.
The barn itself is a lovely space to be in with a very friendly atmosphere and Alison’s coffee was delicious and generous!
I will look forward to the next workshop! Thank you both.

Caroline Sangster - - #32989

This was a fantastic workshop, pitched perfectly and very well
Paced. I liked that the three projects all progressed naturally on from each other in terms of difficulty level, each building on skills from the previous project.
All conducted in a beautiful setting with all equipment and facilities needed and friendly and helpful tutors Liz and Alison. I’m sure I’ll be back for another workshop in the future.

Response from Blooming Designs - Art in the Barn:

Dear Caroline,

Lovely to see and work with you again . Very pleased that you enjoyed your day so much and really appreciate your positivity and your comments. Hope to see you in October !
