“Jonathan is the perfect teacher for this – I now have the confidence to create my own paper from so many things.”
“So much fun, simple to get started, but this tutor has taken me further than any other. The paper I can now make is genuinely useful for my craft work, giving it a more authentic character. I no longer buy paper to use, I make it instead!”
“Jonathan’s enthusiasm for his work is infectious and he has so much patience. I saw him at a show and just had to come on one of his courses. Please do have him again!”
