Great value class with all materials provided. The teacher, Rowan, was warm and generous with sharing her knowledge. And although I went alone and didn’t know anyone, everyone there was friendly and chatty and happy to help each other. A lovely afternoon! Would recommend to anyone with an interest in print making.

This was a really enjoyable workshop in a gorgeous space. Rowan explained the process well and supplied a range of materials for us. I made a cute little tote bag which I'm very happy with.

This was my first workshop at the Centre and I really enjoyed it. Rowan was lovely! Very welcoming and warm. The set up was great - all the materials were organised and ready for us.
Rowan explained clearly what we were going to do and how and instructed us very well - I really liked her style. Two hours was just enough time for us to carve our block and print either a teatowel or tote bag. There weren't enough bags for everyone but fortunately some of us preferred the tea towel option.
The workshop was good value and we all learnt a skill we can continue at home. Rowan shared her tips and tricks and where to source the best materials.
It was a fantastic way to spend 2 hours and I'd definitely return.
