Sun printing workshop in Devon

We enjoyed Bridget's sun printing course. We didn't really know what to expect & luckily as it was a sunny day & we got to try a variety of printing techniques out in the open air. We produced a range of samples & now I've seen what's possible, I'm keen to do more & try out other objects. It was also very interesting to learn about the history of sunprinting from Bridget.

A well organised course. Bridget was a knowledgable and patient tutor. Well explained. We both made two excellent lampshades which reinforced techniques. We enjoyed ourselves immensely and had B&B too which was great after a busy day. It was lovely to see Bridget’s work around the house lit up in its glory.

A lovely day spent learning about sun printing and trying out the techniques. Came away with two fabric prints and four paper prints which are now on display at home. A welcoming and sociable atmosphere meant I really enjoyed the workshop.

A great Christmas present for my Mum. The course was run for just 3 of us in Bridget's home, so the tuition was very clear. We came away with lovely silk scarves or cushions.

Response from Bridget Arnold:

Thank you for the review
I hope you will enjoy using the Scarves and the Cushion

what a lovely day spent in beautiful surroundings, learning a new craft. Bridget was a very patient, supportive and encouraging tutor. I love the finished article and it has taken pride of place at home. Cake and lunchtime conversation was also rewarding...
A great day off from the busyness of NHS working
thank you Bridget

Response from Bridget Arnold:

A lovely workshop delivered in a very friendly and covid sensible way. We loved testing the boundaries with the art a little - and Bridget let us explore new techniques, which was fun. We are really delighted with our shades and keen to learn more about the history of the technique.

Response from Bridget Arnold:

Thanks for the lovely review Juliette
It is always fun seeing the new ideas people bring for their own lamp shades to the workshop ,everyone is able to bring their own ingredients to the mix , which keeps it fresh and interesting.
Thank you for the photos of yours up in its new home ! Enjoy it !

A really enjoyable workshop - almost two in one! Fascinating learning about the cyanograph printing process and then making up the lampshade. Thank you!

A lovely workshop, good for small groups/pairs. A really enjoyable process and Bridget is a really easy going tutor, making for a really relaxing day. The lamps turn out better than you think they will. Lovely lunch too.

Response from Bridget Arnold:

Thanks Jo for the review, we were very lucky with the weather too, the first dry with a bit of sun shine day for ages !

I took my mother along as a Mother's Day present. It was a wonderful day and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Bridget's teaching encouraged us to be adventurous and we were pleasantly surprised by our efforts. The lunch of homemade soup, bread and cake was delicious.I'd definitely like to return.

Response from Bridget Arnold:

Hi Fiona
Thank you for the review , I hope you have both been wearing your scarves and I hope to see you again sometime soon.

I took this course on 23 June 2018 - a hot, sunny day so no need for artificial light! Bridget gave clear demonstrations using different qualities of paper, then fabric. After each, we had a go ourselves, varying exposure times to assess results. Then we were let loose to go our own way, with Bridget’s advice and assistance. An excellent introduction to a process that gives loads of scope for further experimentation!

Thank you Bridget.
