Join me in a workshop to get creative and learn a new skill in a relaxing and supportive environment.

I did Amanda’s printmaking workshops on zinc plate etching and absolutely loved them! The workshops were very informative, fun and comfortable. I highly recommend her workshops! Eddy

Thank you for being a great teacher and very welcoming to us all, enjoyed the whole weekend. Dotty
