What attendees said about our workshops:

Had a fabulous evening learning how to Indian block print at the studio of Joanna (Zena & Rose). It was such an enjoyable evening trying a new craft, sharing ideas and being guided by the knowledgeable, calm and fun Joanna. Look out for her future workshops - definitely worth a try. - Jane (@arty_jane)

Found a new favourite thing to do tonight! Thank you Zena & Rose for introducing me to wood block printing. I found it so relaxing and mindful. I loved thinking about colours and design and I am very happy with my lovely new tea towel. A perfect way to spend a rainy Wednesday. - Jill (@woveninwords)

Absolutely loved learning how to do Indian block printing with Joanna from Zena & Rose and create this fun tea towel. - Mihaela (@cherryriver)
