"thank you for a really inspiring day. I have never done any fabric printing at all and the relaxed atmosphere coupled with your knowledge and ability made for a wonderful day. Good luck for the new collection – I can’t wait to see the end result, especially now I have an understanding of the process you go through to get there!"
"Just wanted to say what a fun day my friends and I, had on Saturday! It was great having a go at the different techniques and I was really pleased with what I created.
The time and content were spot on for us as beginners and I loved the fact that you allowed us to do our own thing but were always around to help us out whenever we needed it.When you have another workshop, please will you let us know, we are all keen to come back! I'd love to try layering more colours into my designs next time."
"I wanted to drop you a line to say a big THANK YOU to you and Vanessa for inspiring me to design my own fabric. It was on attending one of your printing courses back in 2014 that I found my passion for printing. I was hooked! I later discovered that my grandfather had been a printer for Sanderson for 40 years so maybe it was always in the blood! After your course I went onto more advance courses and learnt the craft in full, setting up a little workshop in my garage, exposing my own screens and making a lot of mess. I’m now in production." www.zoeglencross.com
"Thank you for such an inspirational day last saturday. I can't believe how much we fitted in and I am now inspired to do more. My group of friends were all buzzing after the day."
"Huge thanks for a fantastic day today. It was so relaxed and we all worked hard but had fun too. I came away with my very own fabric!"
"We had the best day! Flora was a delight, so encouraging of our efforts as well as explaining everything clearly. The day was a birthday treat for Sarah and I am glad to say she loved it. We would like to come again, perhaps to concentrate more on silk screen printing in more than one colour (ambitious?)"
"This is just a note to say how brilliant the screen printing day was. I really enjoyed all of it and would like the chance to come to something else..."
