This gelli plate course is an absolute must for anyone interested in learning about the craft. Clare is so welcoming and explains the process very clearly. She offers excellent advice and encouragement, so it was perfect for beginners like me! I thoroughly enjoyed the course and would highly recommend it. Thank you Clare for a most enjoyable morning! See you again soon!
I attended the gelli print course this morning, loved every minute of it. Clare certainly knows her stuff and explains each part of the process. Amazing value for money and I will certainly book another course with Clare..
What a great way to spend a Saturday morning, learning a new skill with a small friendly group. Clare is an enthusiastic and inspirational teacher, and soon got us up to speed with the various techniques of Gelli plate printing, with plenty of tips on how to make your own stencils, from bits around the home & garden. I was amazed how quickly the group started to produce different styled prints. It was great to be able to experiment with different paints and techniques, with Clare on hand to help. I would definitely recommend this course & would love to attend again.
I enjoyed Clare's printing course very much. She demonstrated the technique really clearly and had a good range of resources on hand for participants to use when creating their prints. The 2 hours went quickly and the course provided me with the knowledge and inspiration to continue using the technique at home. Thanks Clare.
An excellent way to spend a Saturday morning crafting with my in-laws. Clare is a fabulous teacher, patient, meticulous in detail, and gave us invaluable tips (as well as tea and cookies). I love my lampshade, and the fact that I made it makes it more special. Great value for money. Thanks Clare
Wow! what a great morning I had. No clue what to do before I got there. Clare had so many options for us to use. She showed us so much to generate our own thoughts. Once I got myself together with my thoughts, Clare helped me put my own slant on things. My piece was a Parisian type of theme with some text, now I can go home and have the inspiration to do something again.
Clare is so friendly, helpful, kind, knowledgeable and wanted us to go home knowing that we could try something again at home on our own. Will definitely definitely being attending more of her workshops again. Thank you Clare for giving me the confidence I needed.
So much food for thought. I know I will be experimenting with the techniques that were taught. Clare is an excellent teacher. She is very knowledgeable and helpful when it comes to constructive ideas to make your work better. The tips on what makes a composition strong were particularly helpful to me. Very easy workshop to attend because she provides so many and so varied supplies——you can just show up.
I spent a lovely morning with Clare making my first lampshade. Clare is an excellent teacher who explained clearly what we needed to do. She demonstrated everything first step by step and was on hand throughout the morning ensuring that we got everything right. I'm delighted with my lampshade and feel confident to make more myself. Clare is a very nice, friendly person and it was a pleasure to spend the morning in her company.
Attended a two hour Saturday workshop in Clare’s lovely studio, Clare made us welcome straight away and we got stuck into making our own prints. The two hours went by very quickly and the time was well structured with lots of chance to practice and ask questions. Would definitely recommend this course to anyone who enjoys trying out a new activity and Clare was a great teacher.
I enjoyed the workshop very much. Claire made it look quite easy, but I soon realised that although the technique is simple there are lots of ways to experiment to get different results. It was very inspiring and I’m going to buy a gelli plate to carry on practicing at home.
A fab little workshop, everything explained really clearly before hand and then we were allowed to jump right in and create our own prints, with Clare on hand to support with tips and advice. I learnt so much on the day and really enjoyed it, if you are thinking of giving it a go I can highly recommend this course, great value and super fun.
Well this was my 3rd time on the gelli printing! That's because I think its a perfect gift, and I brought my Mum in law for her 80th and then brought my sister for her 50th. We've all enjoyed it so much in her pretty studio.Two hours is just right, with constant tea and buiscuits.You don't need to be able to draw, its all really easy, but Clare shows you how to lay things out and mix colours that look amazing.I've now got loads of papers for collaging with, stuff to make tags and birthday cards with and I've framed my best one! Thankyou Clare.
The instructions were clear and concise. The space was perfect for this size class. The materials provided were adequate and the hints about finding further art supplies were helpful. Clare is a good teacher and the course is fun. Nice to walk away with pieces of art that can be improved upon or used in other ways.
Well it's my second visit, which says it all, and I've planned another for next month because Clare's workshops make great gifts!
We've had a lovely morning and have tons of gorgeous prints on heavy paper, tissue and today we even tried some fabric. I plan to work into them now in sketchbooks.
You don't need to be an art teacher to love this workshop, but its also great CPD for getting ideas for schools projects.
First time trying Gelli plating and found Claire exceptional in her explanation of the craft. Everything you needed was to hand and Claire suggested different ways of doing things as we went along. Tea and biscuits were offered as well. Great time and would love to continue with Gelli plating.
