Thanks for such a lovely day! It was great to learn all about woodcutting in such a relaxed environment, surrounded by lots of inspiring prints (and unusual ornaments!). Alex is a very friendly and knowledgable host, and obviously really dedicated to his craft...can definitely recommend.
We had such a great time at Alex's evening workshop! He has a beautiful studio and he put on a delicious spread of veggie food. My partner and I managed to produce some prints we were really pleased with, and enjoyed the process of learning about the tools, practising carving and then trying different prints. I would highly recommend this workshop.
Alex was an extremely interesting and helpful teacher who made me feel welcome. He was very passionate about printmaking. This made learning the techniques and making my own woodcut print an enjoyable and entertaining process. Alex was an excellent host who made a tasty lunch (and I am fussy eater).
Already the caringly prepared vast and healthy brunch buffet is worth a visit! Alex runs his course in a highly flexible way, providing book references with those who struggle for ideas, advising each participant on their personal projects and ideas and even teaching “registration” for those who want to take it to the next level and even do multicolour/multilayer woodcut prints.
Surrounding by his own extraordinary partially large-scale work in a studio full of light the space is very inspiring. One can even occasionally watch Alex working on his own art during some of the breaks, which helps very much with ideas and learning.
