"Great experience. I learnt so much about printing techniques and my own creativity from this

very knowledgeable and enthusiastic artist and teacher"

Susan Riley, Poulton le Fylde

"I really enjoyed the course with Sarah, which she made enjoyable and relaxed.  Sarah helped me to think and explore various mediums, materials and products and experience things I otherwise would not have thought about myself. It gave me a quiet confidence and 

I would definitely recommend Sarah's courses to anyone who has an interest in art" 

Vivienne Law, Lancaster
