Really enjoyable activity and incredible how fast the time flew past. For those people with difficulties with pain, mobility or dexterity the studio is on a ground floor and carving is made easier with the heat pad which warms and softens the lino. You'll leave with multiple prints which can continue to be worked on with another print over the top or with watercolour paints. The studio is inspirational especially Billy's art book collection. Worth going to meet the cat Wolfie.
