A lovely morning in the workshop doing lino cutting as a surprise for my husband’s 50th birthday weekend. We were made to feel very welcome and it was great to fully immerse in an activity for a couple of hours. Would definitely recommend!

This is a great experience, and workshop, to do. You feel a real sense of achievement, when at the end of it you can walk away with three prints of your own created work! Hugh guides and supports you with any difficulties you may struggle with. A great 2 hour learning curve! The workshop combines professionalism, positivity and friendship. The studio is in an amazing building - a fantastic space to work in. Totally and emphatically recommend doing this workshop!

I could not have enjoyed my afternoon with Hugh and Lisa more. I learnt so much and got to try a new skill in a professional, well-equipped studio which they have both instilled with a very friendly and welcoming atmosphere. I couldn't recommend this course more and would love to think I'll manage to get back for more lino-cutting.

We had a wonderful time with Hugh and Lisa! It was our first time doing lino printing and we were made to feel very comfortable and relaxed. We are so happy with the prints we produced that we are framing and displaying them when we get home. We highly recommend doing the workshop, whether you think you’re creative or not. Thank you!!!
