Some Feedback from Artists who have worked with Andrew
'I worked with Andy to create a new edition of prints for a recent exhibition. I had almost no knowledge of screen printing beforehand, but the weekend spent working with him was massively enjoyable, I learned a huge amount, and felt that he was interested in the work that we were producing together in a really collaborative, creative and dynamic way. I am really proud of the work that we made, and would completely recommend Andy to anyone, not just for his technical skills, but his creative approach and willingness to share his experience and knowledge. Oh, and he's a totally top bloke to boot!'
'Working with Andy is fun, informative, supportive and most enjoyable. Made me laugh and dance with excitement and wonder. It will support my practice moving forward and the in depth written and pictoral content was excellent.'
'Thanks for a fantastic course! I learned so much. Andy is so organised and the course proceded smoothly because of this. The digital element was excellent. Can I have more please!?'
