Loved this workshop! Clare was really inspiring and full of helpful hints and tips on how to create our mixed media piece.
There were lots of materials available for us to use which included embossing, pastels, moulding paste, foil to name a few. Clare demonstrated various techniques and how to use each of the mediums.
Highly recommend this workshop.

From the moment we arrived, to the minute we left, Clare made the experience very enjoyable. Kept us watered and fed with refreshments.
The course itself was easy to follow, guided by Clare’s experienced hands and knowledge. It was lovely to go home with something that I was proud of, and, ended up making a second shade within hours of returning home.
I would recommend this course for beginners and general crafters alike.
Thank you Clare x

Thank you Clare for a brilliant workshop. I really enjoyed the morning learning about how to print with Gelli plates. I’d not heard of this until I saw the workshop advertised and thought I’d give it a go and was not disappointed.
All materials included, good choice of paint colours and plenty of paper to make prints on. Clare has good knowledge of this method and explains techniques well offering suggestions when needed to help you create good images.
Many thanks Clare.

Response from Clare Cosens Designs:

Many thanks for your kind words. I’m pleased to hear you enjoyed learning a new printing technique and look forward to working with you to develop these further during our mixed media workshop.

Clare was very welcoming and personable. She organised the workshop very well with clear instructions delivered with a sense of humour. Clare gave us lots of helpful tips that wouldn’t have been picked up through online videos. She was also supportive and positive in her approach and I thoroughly recommend this workshop.

We attended the Gelli Plate Printing course today and thoroughly enjoyed it. Clare was very knowledgable and enthusiastic, sharing lots of tips and tricks to perfect our pieces. There were plenty of resources available to inspire our imaginations and Clare was very supportive, offering individual guidance if needed. We came away with some beautiful pieces and immediately booked onto her next mixed media course.

Brilliant morning learning this printing technique with Clare! I immediately felt at ease even though I was a complete novice at Gelli Plate Printing as Clare went out of her way to explain the process and repeat anything we hadn't grasped at first. I can highly recommend this workshop, thank you Clare.
