I had a fantastic time, learned so much about Lino Printing and now have some amazing prints to hang up at home and give to friends. Thanks Kalyene 😀
I had never done linocut before, and I had so much fun! The experience curve was massive, the teacher was super nice (and really funny), we had all the materials we could dream of, and the whole process was really well organised.
I plan to come again and take friends with me, it's a perfect evening plan to chat and be creative in the same time.
DI learned that lino cutting is much more difficult than I’d expected and much more ‘hands on’. I think I was definitely the least arty person there and I was amazed to see what the others produced - some really incredible pieces.
Kaylene was very well prepared and the venue was just lovely. I also think the price was excellent - I’ve seen similar workshops at double the cost. I’d love to do it again but would think much harder beforehand about what might work and perhaps be more experimental - the practice piece I did to start with was much better than my actual piece, possibly because I was ‘freer’. I think I’m definitely more suited to a ‘beginners workshop’ but then again, it was cool seeing everyone else’s amazing creations.
Big thanks to Kaylene for her friendly, professional approach and for the opportunity to try out an art form I’ve admired for ages!
I attended the Autumn Botanicals workshop at The Department Store in Brixton and had a wonderful time! Kaylene was friendly, informative, and hilarious. Despite having no artistic ability, she made me feel like I was Van Gogh! Would absolutely take a class of hers again!!!
