We kick started the year off with a packed programme of 14 workshops between February and May, (with Gum Arabic Transfer still to come on 10th & 11th May). It’s been all go – with 102 people attending and a great buzz in the studio.

We are already planning the courses for June & July and will announce more very shortly.

Feedback this season has been excellent once again with comments such as:

‘Thankyou…the course re-newed my enthusiasm for making prints.’

‘Just keep doing courses like these please!’

‘Everything was excellent, I can’t think of any improvements… and a very charming tutor’

‘A hugely enjoyable weekend with wonderful results’
