Liam Biswell – Course Tutor

Liam gets great feedback from her courses.  Here are just a couple of testimonials:

‘Superb weekend! First time I’ve been able to throw myself into a print project from start to finish since I was at secondary school. So many ideas now flowing, I want to get back into the studio again and create more. Would have loved to spend more time getting to know everyone, but we were all so engrossed in our creations that the weekend whizzed by. I’d do it again in a heartbeat……just need to find the time now. Highly recommended creative weekend!’
David MacQueen
‘I thoroughly enjoyed Liam’s 2 day printmaking workshop. I was a complete beginner, but Liam guided us through the different processes and encouraged us in such a way that I had confidence to have a go and was rather pleased with my efforts! It was all very relaxed. Liam was well organised and all the equipment and materials we needed were readily to hand. The Phoenix Studio in Towersey was a pleasant and accommodating space to work in. I look forward to the next opportunity.’
