Workshops out and about

“The freedom to get on with my own projects/patterns I wanted to do.”
“Lovely atmosphere and setting – felt relaxed but got lots done in two days. It has been an absolute pleasure and you felt like a very attentive, patient and knowledgable teacher.”
“Learning to print, printing, being with others doing the same.”

Above are some comments from a recent printmaking workshop I ran. I have lots of printing workshops coming up over the next few months from various venues and I also currently run ‘Art for All’ classes for Heeley Development Trust every Friday during term time.
