An amazing workshop inside Armi’s beautiful house and garden. Armi makes it easy for beginners to pick up different techniques of printing and you will be surprised by the cool artwork that comes from it! Highly recommended, a very lovely morning spent :)

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 could not recommend Armi's mono-printing enough! I took my mum for her birthday present, as we have both always liked crafty/arty things but never get round to doing it. This was perfect, it doesn't matter if you're completely new to it, or have tried it before, Armi tailors the workshop to your ability. We were beginners and left with some wonderful artwork, and a brand new hobby! The studio is beautiful, and there is such a variety of different materials/utensils etc you can use. You leave with a real variety of new ideas/skills. Time absolutely flew by, Armi was such a pleasure to be around we had such a nice afternoon. My mum said that this workshop absolutely made her birthday. We can't wait to return and bring a few friends along :)

Armi is a fantastic teacher and her tranquil workshop is set in a beautiful courtyard garden. Despite my limited art experience, she made me feel at ease straight away. Inspirational, refreshing and highly recommended. Fabulous home made cake also!

Walked into Armi's fully equipped print studio at her home and felt so excited to get learning. Homemade cake and tea in hand while Armi went through basic ideas for producing amazing prints. With a small group the creativity flowed, the Elephant photos I took as my own inspiration soon became artistic individual prints that I am proud to display at home.
