By the end of the workshop you will have created a range of hand printed fabric and paper to make into wrapping paper, cushions, wash bags or framed pieces. Our aim of this workshop is to provide you with skills you can take away and develop further.

I had such a great morning with Dena, I was the only one in the course and felt so comfortable and relaxed. Dena is so friendly and such a lovely person, was great chatting for the 3 hours. At the beginning Dena explains everything and is on hand for any advice or help you need. I had such fun making my Lino block. Highly recommend this experience. Thanks Dena- will send you pics of my tablecloth, if I ever get round to it!

Just had the most fantastic afternoon of Lino printing in Dena’s studio. Dena’s a patient and accomplished teacher who made us feel instantly at ease and empowered to produce something creative! We made prints inspired by the work of St Ives artists. It was great fun and we thoroughly recommend.

Our experience with Dena was wonderful! We really enjoyed the lino block painting and it was a great time! Dena was great and was very attentive. She helped me when I struggled to get a hang of the job, and was so caring. We are recently engaged and it was a lovely experience to do something together and take home a keepsake for our home together. Situated in a beautiful location, we would definitely recommend this experience for anybody wanting to be creative and intricate! Thanks Dena!
