My daughter (aged 13) and I had an inspiring day with Judith. She shared her knowledge and experience with us and supported us throughout the printing process. There was plentiful supply of tea, cookies and delicious flapjack too! We have continued to create our own pieces at home - thank you, Judith. I would highly recommend this course.

My sister, Mum and myself took this course a few weeks ago. We were all beginners and we we absolutely loved the course. From the moment we arrived we felt at home, with the added bonus of lots of coffee and cake!
Judith put us at ease straight away and we were down to business in no time. We all managed to create some great lino prints with the help of Judith, and the relaxed atmosphere made it such an enjoyable day.
We would all highly recommend.

This was my first attempt at Lino Printing and I thoroughly enjoyed the course. Judith was a great teacher, providing support, instruction and a lot of inspiration for future projects. I was really happy with what I managed to produce during the session and went home confident to do more at home.

This was my first try at screen printing and it did not disappoint. We gained an appreciation of the technical skill required for particular results but were still able to produce pieces that we were proud of and could use to create further prints. Judith's studio is an inspiration, full of light, and to spend the day with fellow printers in such a creative space was a treat in itself. Many thanks, Judith, for an enjoyable day.

I had a really wonderful day and Judith was an excellent tutor, who is clearly very talented. I was thrilled with the images I produced and subsequently did some online purchasing to practise this at home. I would definitely attend a follow-on course to learn more complex techniques in the new year.

Fantastic day yesterday at Judiths home studio surrounded by her creative ideas and lovely garden! I was delighted to create a linocut in the morning and then print a range of different colours and effects ready to make a Christmas frieze when the ink drys. There was also time to experiment with printing using different materials and inks and colour.
Judith is such a good guide and teacher and makes suggestions that enhance your work and yet still retaining your own ideas and individuality.
I came away feeling I had really created work that I was proud of and happy to share with others!
This was my second course with Judith and I thoroughly recommend her courses

What a lovely day learning lino printing! As a complete beginner I couldn't recommend this course, or Judith, more highly. The atmosphere is relaxed and encouraging, and although everyone on the course chose very different subject matter, we all ended the day with a collection of amazing and individual prints. I would do it again tomorrow.

I really enjoyed this workshop and also found it very helpful. I had done some lino printing at home and Judith showed me how to go on the next stage, adding layers of colour to my prints. A friendly and relaxed atmosphere, even though we were all concentrating very hard! A lovely setting too. Highly recommended.

The whole day was fantastic. The workshop is airy, light and in a beautiful setting. Jude was brilliant - patient, calm and gave excellent demos so that we were clear on the process. She helped me achieve my somewhat ambitious tessellated design and I loved my results. The yummy cake, coffees and teas helped lubricate the process. If you are looking for a great day course I would highly recommend this one. It would also be great fun with a group of friends.

I came with a little experience of Lino cut but lacked confidence in the printing process. Judith guided everyone through each stage, encouraging experimentation with cuts, paper and colour, and gave great tips for when we did more at home. It was a thoroughly enjoyable and rewarding day. Thank you Judith.

What a fantastic day! I thoroughly enjoyed this course, Judith made us all feel welcome & it was very relaxed. I’m so pleased with my print. I went in a nervous beginner, not sure what to expect & came out full of enthusiasm & can’t wait to get started on another design from home. Five stars

Was a nice day. We had a good group with a diverse range of prints which I found interesting and inspiring.
Thanks Judith for arranging the gf snacks too. I'd say come with sketches ready to go so you can spend more time experimenting with colours and paper.

A really great course and perfect for a beginner like me. The environment was lovely and Judith taught the course in a very clear and accessible way. I came away with a great understanding of lino cutting and a some nice prints. Highly recommended.

Fantastic day with Judith at the Old Rectory - the lino cut and printing course was very well structured and Judith is an excellent guide and teacher. I have learned so much today and am delighted with the results I achieved as a complete beginner! Judith has a way of getting the best out of you. The coffee, tea, biscuits and cakes were fantastic too! I thoroughly recommend the course, the quality of the materials provided and the space and setting in which we were able to work.

I thoroughly enjoyed this course! It was held in a beautiful light and airy building situated in an idyllic location. Judith began by showing us lots of inspirational examples of prints demonstrating the techniques we could use in our own work. The day was busy but fun and we were treated to lots of coffee, tea and biscuits. Judith was very patient and encouraging. I would highly recommend it!

Wow, what a fabulous day. Hard work, busy and intensive, but so worth it. Judith is a great teacher, a perfect balance of teaching techniques and practical activity. Judith is really supportive and encouraging, she is extremely approachable and friendly. The six hours went so quickly and I came away with thirteen A4 prints of my original lino cut in different colours and on different backgrounds. The workshop location was easy to find, minutes off the A1 and in a beautifully converted building with easy parking. Real coffee, tea, yummy biscuits and cake too. Highly recommended.

A great course, I was made to feel very welcome and accommodated as the complete beginner that I was. The small group was made of people at various stages of proficiency, each was treated individually according to experience and ability with Judith gently pushing you onto the next stage when she felt you were ready for it and suggesting the direction to go in. We all came away with something we were pleased to have achieved and I feel that I am now in a position to continue this at home with a good degree of confidence.

This was one of the best workshops I've ever attended. Judith's enthusiasm, patience and encouragement in explaining the process and then helping with design ideas was very constructive. The group size was perfect and it was very inspiring watching everybody's creations emerge! The coach house is a lovely setting and we were all made very welcome. I would definitely recommend this course.

I had a wonderful day at Judith's workshop. The Coach House was an excellent venue and everyone in the small group was friendly and enthusiastic. Judith was very encouraging and her instruction was brilliant. I was pleased with my first attempt at lino-printing and am planning to do more. I would definitely recommend this course.
