Exploring the world of collagraph - hand pulled printing with Kim Major George (Course inactive)

I can’t recommend a workshop with Kim more highly. I was completely new to collagraph printing, but now have done four workshops. Kim is an inspiration and will talk you through examples of her work which just makes your jaw drop. She’s on hand to guide you through the process with plenty of support and practical advice.

Modern calligraphy for Christmas with Lauren Cooper (Course inactive)

I had a wonderful time at Lauren's calligraphy workshop. She went into a lot of detail about using the right supplies and offered great tips on useful resources and supply stores. Her workshop was relaxed and thorough - she made sure to go around and check on everyone and all her advice was spot on. I would highly recommend it!

3 day extended felt picture masterclass with Bridget Bernadette Karn

My second weekend with Bridget and it was brilliant. Bridget is a very patient tutor and wants you to learn. She is generous with her knowledge and skills. I have come away with so many more techniques that have added to the ones I learnt last time and feel confident to try to paint a wool picture on my own. Thanks for your encouragement and support Bridget.

Ecoprint onto paper with Caroline Nixon (Course inactive)

Caroline's workshop was very well organised and well structured for a range of ecoprinting experience levels. She is a very clear, but patient, tutor, always mindful of where a student is on their specific learning journey. She builds up the knowledge to be learnt in a straightforward and sequential way and is always positively responsive to questions. Best of all, she is great fun! I would (and do) thoroughly recommend her to new and experienced eco printers alike.

One Week Immersion into Authentic Japanese Watercolour Woodblock with Laura Boswell (Course inactive)

What worked so well for me was that Laura was able to devote plenty of one-to-one attention to each and every participant, catering for our individual needs. The size of class also made a big difference to this approach — eight to ten is just about right.
