Christmas comes around quickly and so often we are left with the quandary of what to buy people or what to ask for. As I get older I want for less and less, actually where I am in my life I want for nothing ...apart from a couple of tubs of expensive face cream...yes please Father Christmas.
For a few years now my sister has bought me an experience...such as tickets to the opera, afternoon tea and a screen printing course.
2019- this year- saw the first full year of me running workshops from my studio space. I have met amazing people and made connections that will stay with me forever. I have people that come back for more lino printing loveliness again and again.
In my workshops I am to create space and time to think or actually focus on something that isn’t the ever growing job list both at work and/or at home.
2020 sees a greater variety in the workshops, using a larger studio space so that we can spread out and do larger scale and more amazing lino printing projects, such as wallpaper printing and printing your own fabric items.
So if you are wanting to give an experience or a memory then have a look at the dates and the workshop descriptions and if you are a subscriber to my email list you will get a 10% discount on all workshops booked before midnight on 5th January 2020.
You can always direct your loved ones this way if you would like one for a gift for Christmas,Birthday or just because!!
(Bookings made via email to me directly)
Lots of love and happy Christmas.
