TESIMONIALS
“Thank you very much Jen – we had a super morning!”

“Jen ran a linocut workshop for a group of young people at a youth event I organised this summer. The teenagers were inspired by seeing some of Jen’s creations and then after she’d shared some hints and tips for successful lino cutting, she gave loads of space for them to have a go at creating their own, whilst offering support and guidance as needed. They were so excited about what they’d managed to create by the end of the workshop. Thanks so much Jen!”
