This was a fabulous course with a great teacher. I 'attended' online in what was my first ever zoom experience. It took place over a few weeks 1:1 and I learnt so many new techniques. I am having a fantastic time experimenting at home. Thank you.
Response from Cheese + Pickles Design Studio / Henry Hedgepodge Academy:Thank you very much Sue. It was a great pleasure to be with you virtually I do hope we can connect again online or in person. You have an innate sense of design! Keep experimenting!! Debs
I did this course online, which was excellent. Doing a tutorial a week at a mutually agreed time meant I had time to practice techniques between lessons and produce a great body of work.
Response from Cheese + Pickles Design Studio / Henry Hedgepodge Academy:Thank you so much! Please send me photos of the curtains when they're up. Stay in touch. Debs
The Gyotaku workshop was inspiring and I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone. Thank you to Deborah, who was generous with her time, and really interesting to speak with about this art form. I am really happy with my prints and loved that I had lots of opportunities to be experimental with them.
Response from Cheese + Pickles Design Studio / Henry Hedgepodge Academy:Thank you! Come again anytime to visit @HedgepodgeART. Stay in touch, would love to keep up with your GCSE portfolio work! Debs
Had a really lovely time creating Gyotaku with Deborah. The course was excellent and it's amazing the effect you get from printing from a real fish! It was fun and we learnt enough to create more Gyotaku at home. I would definitely recommend Gyotaku with Deborah and St David's where we did the course is a great town (actually the smallest city in the UK), well worth a visit,nice shops, food and impressive cathedral. Thanks very much!
Response from Cheese + Pickles Design Studio / Henry Hedgepodge Academy:,Thank you so much for your thoughtful review and for mentioning what St. Davids has to offer as well!
I loved this course, the whole experience is inspirational and you come away with so many ideas and also a large selection of beautiful fish prints! I could have done this all day! Thank you Debs for introducing me to the intriguing and beautiful art of Gyotaku.
This course is great fun and the results are stunning. Deb is so enthusiastic and knowledgeable. We experimented with different fish, printing on fabric, wet and dry paper and introducing textures. I came away with so many ideas. Brilliant course. Thank you so much Deb.
As a complete beginner I spent a thoroughly enjoyable day with Deb, who was both knowledgable and encouraging. We looked at the elements of good textile design through existing design examples. This was followed by creating my own design based on plants found in the garden, which was eventually transferred into print. It's given me plenty of ideas and I'm now looking forward to furthering my experience of design and printing. Thank you Deb!
Wanted to take this workshop again so that I could experiment with fabric, great afternoon with exceptional teacher and lovely fellow participants.
Would recomment to anyone whether they just want to plass a wet afternoon or gain some real experience of this technique, Deb with cater for you all.
Wanted to try this technique after teafing a magazine article. Deb's enthusiasm for the subject really shone through and the course was fun and interesting producing some very pleasing prints. Definitely worth having a go.
Loved the results! Very inspiring!
I had so much fun on this course: results are awesome. You can be sure you will walk away with a handful of creations you can be proud of. Debs is a great teacher, very patient and encouraging. Children love this workship too - it is a great way to spend an afternoon.
This is a really cool course. I was 11 when I did it and it was so much fun and I hope I can do it again. Debs was so patient and helpful :)
It was the most exciting workshop I have
ever done, my friends were amazed, a lot
have never heard of Gyotaku, so I spread
the word! Looking forward to doing some
more in June. ANN
This course is great fun and the results are stunning. Debs is an enthusiastic teacher who encourages you experiment and discover your creative potential.
