What our students say…
“I enjoyed the course so much the first time that I have just completed it for the second time. The course style is informal & informative. Sally is a great tutor. She encourages and recognises individual styles and strengths and helps when needed but also gives each student confidence to work independently.” Rebecca Alexander
“The introduction to screen printing course ran by Sally is great! I’m a graphic designer and was looking for a way to widen my skill set and the course was a perfect introduction to a new way of printing. Not only that, it was really good, hands-on fun and engaging. Sally is a great teacher. It gave me so much inspiration for further projects that I didn’t want it to end.” Mike Hodson
“I have just finished the 6 week course and absolutely loved it! I didn’t have any previous printing experience but I have learned so much in such a short space of time. I feel well equipped and armed with enough skills to be able to set up my own basic screen printing workshop at home. Sally is a great teacher and artist, her sessions were super organised and the atmosphere was really friendly and relaxed. Loved it!” Ellen Grady
“I really enjoyed the screen printing course. It was so much fun and I learned so much in just 6 weeks. Sally was fab, she’s really friendly and explains the process in such a way, it’s really easy to understand. I loved every moment of it and I got to produce some really nice things. If you’re interested in screen printing, than this course is definitely for you. I just wish the course would have ran for longer!” Sonya Clibbens
