Workshop Testimonials

"Such a lovely afternoon. A fantastic way to switch off for a while. Gerry you are so talented and very inspirational. I will definitely come to another one"
- LW

"Heartiest thanks to Gerry Coles for guiding me through my first linocut reduction process. Her calm and precise guidance made the process clear and allowed a good grasp of the planning for the carving, and play of the colour composition. Gerry provided the right level of nudges and prompts whilst all the time nailing the colour abstractions I was attempting to convey verbally. Her uncluttered, well organised and well equipped studio in charming Oxfordshire provided a nourishing space for good things to flow. Well worth the trip to Oxfordshire! So chuffed by how this turned out!"
