"I’ve no hesitation in recommending a class with Lee. From start to finish it was as enjoyable as it was informative and inspiring. Lee imparts his considerable knowledge and shares his skills in a very supportive way that is tailored for each student. It was a lovely relaxed atmosphere; you are made to feel very welcome and valued. You will leave feeling confident and motivated - I feel like one day with Lee has brought about a quantum leap in my approach to print-making! The beautiful venue is also great and there is plenty of easy parking on site. Thanks so much, Lee!"

"Cannot recommend this course enough. Lee gently led us into producing some wonderfully coloured and beautiful prints. It’s a day that would suit varying abilities . As a complete’ art’ beginner Lee had a way of giving me confidence to make decisions without taking over. I felt so at ease and too absorbed in the process to feel Inhibited. It was amazing and exciting watching our prints emerge throughout the day each layer informing the next. Will go back for more soon. "

"Lee was a good and patient teacher. The process of design, cutting, ink mixing and printing were clearly explained and I was delighted with my first ever linocut. The studios were great too and got set up for the course and lunch and seeing other artists at work in the lovely Victorian school rooms. Would love to go on another of Lee’s courses and would highly recommend this one. "

Lee Wright Artist responded:

" I am glad that you really enjoyed the day Rachel and what a lovely print you created. Well done! Hope to see you again soon... Lee"

"We had a brilliant day with Lee in July. We booked as a group of 5 friends and he was very generous about finding a date we could all manage. His teaching was really clear and encouraging and he managed the different levels of experience and skill without difficulty. Lee maintained a good pace so that we all had a chance to complete/nearly our prints. The studio was lovely and we each had plenty of room to work in. I would recommend Lee's course to anyone. I hope to repeat it. Long live Lee!!"

"My friends and I really enjoyed the day. We achieved far more than we expected as complete beginners due to Lee's calm and helpful tuition, and the lovely relaxed atmosphere in the studio. We would definitely recommend to others and would do the workshop again. "

"I very much enjoyed the lino printing course at Cwmdu Studios. Lee is very helpful and encouraging, and I was very impressed with how everything was organised to maximise success for the rookie lino printer! Not to mention the Studios which is such an inspiring environment. A very good day, and I only wish I lived closer."

"I had a fantastic day at Lee's lino print workshop. It was exactly what I wanted. His tuition was spot on. He really knows his stuff. He was informative with clear instructions and guidance in a friendly, kind and encouraging way. The class was small which gave time for each student to have more than enough personal tuition. At the same time he allowed each of us to put into practice our own freedom of creative expression and interpretation of what we wanted to achieve. I learned so much. Such a nice guy. I am now getting some stuff to practice on my own. The old school is a great location too and you feel inspired just by being there and soaking in the creative atmosphere of what other students are doing. Book a course. You will NOT be disappointed"

"Such a great course! Was nervous before I started as this was outside of my comfort zone & my very limited artistic abilities. However, Lee soon put me at ease with his patient & extremely knowledgeable approach. Lee was very supportive throughout, sharing his techniques & expertise to give us all a thorough understanding of the process. And the venue was stunning. Beautiful building filled with some of the most stunning paintings and linoprints I've ever seen - such amazing talent. Would highly recommend Lee's course. Even if you're a newbie like me, I'd encourage you to give it a go."

"The hushed atmosphere of Lee's professional lino printing studio. Ambitious I thought for one day, how to have four colours in your reduction lino print. Fully absorbed, relaxed and made doable by Lee."

Sue Cartlidge reviewed: Lino printing landscapes

"Hadn’t done anything like this since school days very many years ago. But with Lee’s help I learned much more than then.....how to hold the cutters, what kinds of pressure to use, how to use the roller and mix the colours....all quite new to me. Was astonished at the resulting image that I produced, all in a very supportive and encouraging atmosphere. Thanks so much for a really great day that got me out of myself. Am sure I’ll be back for more before too long."

Magpie reviewed: Lino printing landscapes

"I had a great day in the studio with Lee and the others attending the Lino Printing course. Lee is very easy going and encourages all participants, before you know it you are working and learning without any lecture style tuition. We all got the benefit of Lee's obvious techincal knowledge and enthusiasm for print making and art in general. All the attendees were guided and encouraged but ultimately able to make their own choices and everyone ended up with their own bespoke print at the end of the day. The venue was great - I really liked the 'studio' vibe - seeing other works in progress. I would like to book further courses."

Lee Wright Artist responded:

" It was great to spend the day with you Gary and the rest of the 'gang'. Look forward to seeing you again later in the year...Lee"

"Wow, what a fantastic day. Lee, made everyone very welcome to his beautiful studio. He has a lovely warm and relaxing way of imparting his knowledge and passion, no question was too silly or a problem. Lee, offered everyone equal tuition, advice and encouragement throughout to enable all to achieve some amazing results in just a day. Highly recommended, you'll learn so much and be inspired to do more. Thanks, I'll be back."

Lee Wright Artist responded:

" It was great to meet you Steven, you clearly got the knack of lino printing quickly. Looking forward to sharing more artistic adventures with you..."

"Lee was inspiring, teaching a mixed group including beginners with no art experience and others, with backgrounds in art and design. Everyone finished their work and took prints home. He gave each of us focussed individual support as needed. Thank you Lee, I’ll be back!"

Lee Wright Artist responded:

" It was lovely to meet you Alison and spend a creative day with you. Well done on making such a beautiful print. Looking forward to seeing you again for some more!...Lee"

Catherine reviewed: Oil painting

"I really enjoyed my venture back into the art world on Lee's course. The location is idyllic and the set up is fantastic. Being surrounded by so many works of art whilst creating my own was just inspiring. Lee is clearly a very talented painter who has a really relaxed nature about the way he teachers. Tailoring the teaching to each individual and creating an almost family atmosphere within the studio where everyone is supportive of everyone else. I really enjoyed this course and would recommend it for anyone, be you a complete novice or someone on par with Van Gogh."

Lee Wright Artist responded:

" It was great to meet you Cath and I'm glad you enjoyed the day. I do hope it is the start of your artistic journey."

Suzanne Way reviewed: Lino printing landscapes

"I attended Lee's Lino Printing course this week and I just want to say a huge "Thank you" to Lee for sharing his knowledge and creativity with me. The course was beyond brilliant ... I just wish it was for 2 days ... I didn't want to stop! Lee has brought back creativity into my life which has been lacking for such a long time and for that I cannot thank him enough! I will definitely be booking onto future courses with Lee ... but next time ... 2 days! Lee is an excellent tutor and makes you feel immediately relaxed and confident in the process. I have had lino cutting tools delivered this morning ... I cannot wait to get cracking with my next print!"

Lee Wright Artist responded:

" It was a pleasure to welcome you to my studio Suz and help you learn the reduction lino printing process. You made a lovely print and I hope you keep it up!"

"What a great day! Learnt so much about colours and how to mix them to get the desired nuance which was great fun. Lee was respectful and encouraging, giving just enough tuition to guide us in the right direction with expertise advice. I was astonished at the result at the end of the day, had such an enjoyable time with great company. Thank you!"

"The Cwmdu studios are the perfect setting for a day of learning and creativity. Lee is a great teacher- giving us enough information to keep us on track but not overwhelming us. I did come out at the end of the day wishing I could do it all over again it was so enjoyable. I learned SO much. I also came away with four prints. Bonus!"

Cathy reviewed: Lino printing landscapes

"Just had an excellent day with Lee, who took myself and 2 other novices through the process of creating a landscape using lino print. Whilst it felt like a really relaxed day we all managed to create a multi layered lino print that whilst bearing some resemblance to the pictures we had brought along as inspiration, also had our own interpretation of the landscape. A great introduction to lino print, and sufficient knowledge transferred to enable us to be able to develop this further if we wish."

Cath reviewed: Lino printing landscapes

"This is a really excellent workshop. I came to the day with no knowledge or experience of Lino printing and left with an appreciation of what a beautiful art form this is. The studio is a great space and Lee is an incredibly knowledgeable and patient tutor and his own artwork is wonderful. We were guided in how to mix, choose and think about colour and were taken step by step through building the layers of our prints. Lee was postive and encouraging throughout the day. If you are a complete beginner like me or a have knowledge and experience you would like to build this is an excellent day that I would highly recommend."

Tina Evans reviewed: Lino printing landscapes

"As a complete novice to lino printing I didn’t know what to expect from the day but I was really delighted. Lee took our class of 6 gently through the process, working at our pace and giving encouragement every step of the way. The old school is a comfortable environment with log burners and plentiful tea and coffee. The day went very quickly and I was amazed at what we’d all achieved! I would recommend to anyone new to the process or wanting to learn more: you’re surrounded by Lee’s work and it’s very inspiring!"

"Had a great day at Humble By Nature for the 1 day Lino printing course with Lee. You get through a lot in one day covering all the processes involved for Lino printing, with multiple layers. Lees experience and understanding of technique and colour means he is able to assist everyone with their projects throughout the day so you get the most out of it and you develop your prints layer by layer."

Lee Wright Artist responded:

" Thanks a lot Kate, Glad that you enjoyed the day and hope to see you again soon. Lee"
