Great to have a small class of just 4 people. Was able to have a go at 3 lino prints.
Be good to get earlier knowledge (perhaps at booking) that you need to bring your own images to trace and cut. I only got this info 3 days before on the course reminder email and had little time to find something. (I can’t draw). I would have taken home better pieces with more time to prepare ideas/images to cut.
A really well taught and fun course. The facilities and quality of teaching are excellent. I couldn't recommend this enough.
Great instructor. Excellent materials and tools. Community centered vibe and lovely fellow participants.
Small group (5) which we meant we had easy access to the tutor. Tutor friendly and helpful. Premises and equipment good. Wonderful views of the Thames. Plenty of parking space.
My aim was to learn the technique and then to work out what sort of images work best - and I did both these.
I came away with two prints that I was quite pleased with and have now bought the bits of equipment that I was missing, so I can do more linocuts at home.
So for me the course achieved its aim.
