"Feedback from Helen"

- Printmaker, Northern Print

Our Approach

Helen: Approach to how you worked with Skimstone, what their aims were and what activities were delivered.

“I had no idea that learning old printmaking methods could be such fun. I appreciated the support of Claire for poetical leadership and that of Helen, the patient print expert. Seeing our printed poems was exciting”

- Workshop participant

"This is to say a big thank you for a wonderful day on Tuesday. You were so supportive and this helped all the different members of our group to be actively involved in the process of learning to use Letterpress.

We really appreciated the day and the work that went into raising the funds so that we could experience what is on offer at Northern Print."

- Claire Webster Saaremets, Artistic Director, Skimstone Arts
