Thank you for your patient and competent tuition... I learnt such a lot in the way that I learn best - by doing it with my own hands under the leadership of an experienced tutor. - Gwenyth Wilson-Rudström, 2016

My residency was a wonderful experience.. making new work in the studio with Terry was educative and comprehensive.
It enabled me to adopt a striking number of additional techniques for my future Mokuhanga and I look forward to applying all that I have learnt from Terry, who is a master of the discipline. - Deborah Metz, 2016

Great experience and excellent value for money. Working with Terry one on one meant I was able to focus on specific areas of my practice I was struggling with, dedicating enough time to gain a thorough understanding through both theory and practical application. Terry's flexibility in approach to both form and content meant I got a truly unique and tailored experience. His wealth of knowledge about the medium and easygoing style makes me certain that anybody wanting to take their practice to the next level would get the same. Highly recommended and I'll definitely be back! - Mat Paul, 2017
