I had such a lovely time at Armi's Lino Printing workshop. It had been a while since I had done this process and she went through everything and demonstrated each stage of the process. The facilities are great and the home made cake too!

I had a lovely informative afternoon at Armi’s beautiful studio. Despite having no previous experience I was always encouraged and enabled to produce several different prints. Armi supplied an enormous amount of materials, paints and papers. The afternoon was a delight especially with the added benefit of tea and homemade cake!

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.

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.

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)

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!

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.

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.

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 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.

The setting for the course is inspirational and the workshop is very user friendly with all tools and materials readily at hand to use as needed. I had never seen this media being used before so I was a complete novice. The course starts with a short powerpoint presentation covering the key aspects of the skill and then Armi shows everyone how to get started and you're off. The numbers were small enabling Armi to give all members of the course exactly what they need throughout the day. If you get stuck or need to be shown something again or if you need inspiration Armi is at hand to help you along. By the end of the day I had produced some really lovely prints and also learnt how to stitch some of the prints into a little booklet. We stopped for a delicious lunch. In addition to what I learnt and took home (feeling very pleased with myself) I also met some lovely people who were on the course too. All in all a brilliant day out!

N5 workshops is an inspirational environment. All materials are laid out for you to use and the course starts with a short presentation from Armi explaining how to do gelli printing. Numbers are kept small so there is plenty of time for Armi to give everyone the time they need. Armi is very friendly and helpful and has many years of experience teaching Art. Experience varies amongst the group but you will meet like minded people who are all very interesting and enthusiastic about learning the skill. At the end of the day I was very proud to take home some lovely prints and I will definitely sign up for some more workshops. Added to this delicious refreshments served in a beautiful environment.

This was a really fun morning held in beautiful surroundings. Armi gave us a series of demonstrations and then let us play with the paints, using our own stencils or ones from her studio stash. It was a quick and affordable introduction to gelli printmaking.

We learnt how to make a plate for printing using different materials. Having done one of Armi’s workshops before I knew how welcoming and helpful she is. The venue is beautiful.
