"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."

"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!"

Su Parker reviewed: Online textile surface pattern design workshop

"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!"
