Lovely feed back from participants …
“The mark marking workshop was a great experimental session, which took us back to the very basics of creative practice, reminiscent of art and design in my youth. The tools we created were made out of recycled goods and became fun tools to use in a range of methods and processes. A full day of experimentation in a perfect location and environment with lots of inspirational chats, tea and biscuits.”
