It was a privilege to be let into Armi's outstanding studio and garden. I learnt a lot, several techniques, in a very short time. Yet, it didn't feel quite rushed. If you are interested in expanding your imagination into printing, and try some abstraction of your ideas. Thanks Armi, and thank you for the cake and coffee.

I came home today from Armi's Mono-printing workshop with a spring in my step, a big smile on my face and bursting with inspiration and motivation to carry on exploring! Armi's home was beautiful , her studio is what we all dream of having and she was relaxed and clear in her instruction. It was a well-needed reminder , not only of mono-printing as a technique but of how to freely experiment with materials & pattern like I used to in those art college days. I could easily have spent the rest of the day there to continue so I will definitely be going back! I'm excited to get back to my desk tomorrow and carry on.... Thankyou Armi and everyone else who was there today!

Brilliant workshop! Excellent teaching and introduction to mono printing. Amri is just wonderful full of inspiring methods which comes from a huge knowledge of printing processes. All students were incredibly engaged and interested and supportive of each other’s creative ‘masterpieces’ ;-) Great fun worth every penny, the best way to start your day.

Fantastic experience!! During this workshop in her fabulous studio, Armi leads the participants into the world of mono printmaking via light warm up printing exercises, great technical explanations and inspiring examples. There is ample of time to just enjoy the flow and create work independently with Armi’s support and creative guidance. Participants were surprised and stunned by the work produced by themselves as the process contains so many elements of unplanned beautiful surprise effects. Armi’s own enthusiasm about printing is absolutely infectious, and only adds to the wonderful printing experience!

Armi packed a great deal into a couple of hours which flew by in her perfect studio, filled with light, a true creative space. I learned loads despite being a lifelong dabbler, was so absorbed I had no idea I'd fingerprinted my face thoroughly. Superb instruction, felt able to experiment. Totally achieved what I wanted, which is to revive the creative process, get the itchy fingers back. Job done, but will be back for more classes as a springboard to get back in the groove.

This was a great fun introduction to mono printing. We had the run of Armi's beautiful studio, which is a totally inspirational space in itself, and had lots of opportunity to play with the different techniques that Armi showed us. The only disappointment was how short the session was, as by the time I was getting to grips with the possibilities it was time to pack up. I could have gone on all day!

Armi is an excellent teacher, very friendly, really well-prepared and informative, supportive and inspiring. Her studio is a delightful space full of light, and with enough space for each of the 5pf us to have our own work Station with rollers and inks and papers, etc. She provided everything we needed to make a number of mono prints using several different techniques,. She had prepared lots of beautiful pressed flowers and grasses that we rolled up and printed as a fantastic array of materials to create textures and colours , drawers full of collage papers and various treasures. She has clearly been collecting all this stuff for years and is so generous to share it with us. And there’s coffee and cake! My only complaint would be that 2 1/2 hours flew past and I didn’t want to leave. I would definitely encourage anyone, beginners of practicing artists , to enjoy a session with Armi in her stunning studio. You won’t be disappointed.

We had such a lovely workshop with Armi in her beautiful studio! Thank you for a great workshop. I will be booking onto your Lino workshop too!!! I am also an artist teacher and it was great for me to go along and be in a class where I could draw and print. Thanks Armi

A brilliant workshop. We learned so much in such a short space of time, I was really pleased with my mini mono prints. The studio is absolutely stunning, the most beautiful I have ever seen - well equipped, light and totally inspiring to work in. The homemade cake was such a personal and delicious touch too. Thank you Armi, I am booking my next workshop now.
Alexa - March 17th
A fantastic & inspiring workshop from Armi! We had a wonderful morning doing some initial drawing exercises followed by a well demonstrated lesson in creating mono prints. Armi showed us a small powerpoint & lots of samples to give us inspiration before we started creating! She has an extremely well stocked supply of exciting papers & ephemera that we were able to use in our designs. The studio is absolutely gorgeous, with generous space to work in. Combine all that with some amazing cake & coffee.....just a wonderful creative morning! Can't recommend it enough!

I attended this class with my two nieces and nephew and we came away absolutely buzzing with excitement! It was a great class and Armi is a fantastic teacher. We learnt something really fun and new but also came away infused with confidence and full of ideas, plus handfuls of artwork to show off. Armi was incredibly welcoming and started off the lesson with a few drawing exorcises that got us going and gave us tonnes of confidence to start creating prints straight away. I've never done anything like this before and at the ripe old age of forty something discovered that I'm not actually so terrible at drawing after all! The young ones (teen's) had so much fun and declared it the 'best Christmas present ever'. My nephew showed his work to his art teacher at school who was most impressed and has been told that he can include it in his GCSE art portfolio. He has declared that printing his favourite medium. What more can I say? It was utterly brilliant, the setting was perfect and inspiring, Armi has the dream studio and it was an utter pleasure spending a few hours in there. Nothing compares to the generosity of those who share their knowledge and build confidence in other people; thank you Armi. :O)

Armi’s class was great - we learned lots of different printing techniques - it was very hands on and experimental, and great for keen artists or complete beginners. Everyone came out with lots of lovely prints at the end. The studio is beautiful and fantastically equipped. I’d recommend this to anyone for a creative, inspiring way to spend an afternoon.
Leena - January 14th
A class on both mono printing and gelli printing. Armi was very informative and friendly. The venue was gorgeous and the cake was great. Perfect size class with just 6 of us. Armi was very kind in making sure that my daughter didn’t feel out of her depth.
Sarah - January 9th
I absolutely loved this class, Armi was the most charming and comprehensive of teachers.Her studio is stunning and with the addition of the most delicious handmade cake shared during the break, she made us feel totally at home.I would highly recommend this course, I came away feeling totally inspired.
