  • I liked all of the [online workshop] demos and seeing the process used to arrive at a finished image. All directions and demos were clear verbally and visually. I really like the Facebook group. It gives a feeling of comradery, which I have fond memories of from art classes in college. Since we can't be together, it's the next best thing. Also, the images are inspirational. I really like the GUIDES you post about what you have done in your studio. These are motivating to continue experimenting.

  • Small group works well and I felt I had plenty of access to your advice. I loved that we were in your workshop and could see your work in progress, and your tools and set up. It was also great that you had so many examples from lots of different artists to show. There's a clear process to follow - Trust the process! : ) I was able to finish my prints at home with no trouble. It was actually good for me to do that a couple of days after the workshop so I could still catch what I was already forgetting.

  • First I met Kim was at Open Studio 2021 this year. And photograph her open day and all her best artwork. Then to document her next workshop was another joyful to learnt and understand on how colour, texture, patterns can mixed together into paper. I finally decided to join myself the workshop today and it was awesome. I wish it's every month hehehe I would've join all of them if it's possible. That's how crazy I am to express that this is the most popular workshop ever! Kim was so communicative and very thorough to explained all the tools and the artwork she done in the past. Inspiring us to open our wings and let it fly high with saturated colours, texture, pattern andddd fun with new friends. We had a blast of joy. So thank you so much and Merry Christmas 🤶. See you next year workshop. Kim, you are a legend!!!! 💕

She is so good at helping you to problem solve and improve your results while not telling you what to do. The resources are excellent and it is just a wonderful day of fun and learning. Also very partial to the orange and almond cake.... thanks Kim.

  • Kim has a wonderful relaxed and empathetic teaching style. She is very helpful and encourages the students to try something new. I came away from the workshop not only with a great range of prints, but buzzing with ideas to try at home. ... the studio is light and bright and there is plenty of space for every student.

  • Kim's Lino print workshop is first class. She walked everybody through the technical aspects of reduction lino printing without leaving anyone behind. Her limited class size allowed her to spend time working with beginner printmakers as well as give advice on more difficult or advanced techniques. Every printmaker came away from the class I attended with a set of prints, an understanding of printing ink and papers, an idea of which tools to use and where to get them, and the confidence to go forth and create.

  • Kim, you are an excellent teacher and made your high levels skills and knowledge about printmaking accessible to a newbie like me.. I love the way you bring your whole heartedness, passion and fun to the workshop too.. I got a series of prints I was really happy with despite some challenges. I felt supported but challenged at the same time, which is really important to me in my learning. Thank you.

  • Kim’s workshop explored so much more than I anticipated. Her print making methods were generously explained with great clarity & detail. The weekend workshop was energetic, informative and I left totally inspired. After meeting Kim, I admire her not only as an accomplished artist, but even more as a generous, caring human. I feel fortunate to have stumbled across this little gem, leaving with so many new skills to practice. Look forward to exploring more with Kim next year.

  • The event was the wonderful, inspiring day that I expected. Kim, you seem to attract wonderful souls to your studio. Every single workshop that I have had the privilege of joining has been populated by positive, enthusiastic folks who want to learn and are generous in their support of their fellow participants. You are not only an excellent teacher but also an amazing psychologist! And the wall in the toilet is inspiring, comforting, and amusing…. as well as an ongoing reminder of the work we humans need to do to ensure health and wellbeing!

  • I loved the relaxed atmosphere and although I didn’t know any of the participants, I felt that I was coming ‘home’ when I arrived and entered your glorious studio. As always, the workshop included safety instructions as well as critical information provided in a clear, logical manner accompanied by examples of work. You are a consummate instructor (teacher) Kim! Other aspects… organisation, space to work, provision of generous notes, tools and materials, comfortable and beautiful surroundings, great resources (books and examples of work), relaxed but purposeful atmosphere, lovely participants, and positive enthusiasm by all as materials were unbundled. WhooHoo! Magic on the mountain.

  • The eco-printing workshop was a thoroughly enjoyable experience, delivered with Kim’s obvious passion, knowledge, and excellent teaching. It flowed smoothly with everything technically well prepared; still leaving space for enquiry, creativity, discovery, and happy surprises. Kim's workshop process pays a great deal of attention to the needs and experience of individual participants. Even though we were fully immersed in our creations, everyone was relaxed and friendly, making it a completely delightful day. I certainly am determined to continue my journey with botanical printing. Thank you, Kim!

  • Kim, it is a huge privilege to visit you in your gorgeous studio and learn from you. I have been fortunate to have enjoyed several sessions with you now... and I have loved every single one of them. It has been wonderful learning new skills and approaches as well as meeting lovely like-minded folks who are also enthusiastic to learn. It feels like 'coming home' to arrive at your studio all ready to be enthralled and launched into a new skill/direction. What did I like about this workshop? - fabulous instructor (generous, enthusiastic, authentic, well-informed, pragmatic, and supportive... with frequent reminders of strategies to ensure physical and psychological well being) - welcoming spacious and totally inspiring studio space in great setting - small group of like-minded folks who were enthusiastic to learn/share, - fellow students a wonderful mix of experienced and emerging artists as well as folks who are just really interested in art and making... and all are made to feel welcomed and valued - fabulous notes (fulsome information re. process, where to acquire etching materials, and where to find examples of work created by practising artists) - great pace and length of teaching/working sessions - awesome tasty and healthy treats - quotations wall in toilet

  • I love how you break down what initially seems like a complex process into very clear and simple steps so that it becomes very achievable. I also love that with my baby press, and some simple supplies I can explore the world of etching - which I always thought would be too hard. I feel so confident using my press now - and really appreciate that you will help us source smaller quantities of materials so we can experiment further without a huge investment of money. It's great to share the creativity of the other students in each group = learning about their art journey and finding out out what inspires them and ignites their passions. Viva la print making!

  • We had a fabulous time, Everything was prepared ready for us to start after Kim demonstrated. I couldn’t wipe the smile off my face all day, I just love blue! Kim shares lots of information and resources with students and answers all questions happily. She’s a great educator and now I’ve bought a kit to continue the process at home.

  • Kim’s Studio is a wonderful space to work in. I thoroughly enjoyed the day (which seemed to fly by) and the workshop. Kim was always on hand to offer advice if needed. My fellow workshop participants were a lovely group of ladies, so all in all, a fabulous day!

  • I love the Organic style Kim embraces, where every workshop, no matter how advanced the students might be from previous tutorials, there will always be a serendipitous occurrence/feel in the class, then the Magic/Wow factor happens. Knowledge of medium excellent, generous with tips, and how to improve the print whilst allowing the student their own autonomy and ideas to develop. A Creative, calm work space that Kim runs efficiently, is a place of taking the student outside their "comfort zone" stretching the old mindset, all for a better result. A studio, where WELCOME is a reality. Thank you.

  • I loved the warm welcome, the studio environment (and library), the morning/afternoon tea (Yum!), the great group of participants (all friendly and interesting), and the superb organisation... structured, inclusive and wonderfully supportive teaching with frequent reminders of critical concepts for any artist or indeed human being (nothing right or wrong, just an opportunity to learn; release the attachment to the outcome; stop overthinking and so on). The workshop built onto the introductory online gel plate printing workshop perfectly! The workshop was so well organised. I knew long before arriving that I was going to have a fabulous day... and it was... inspiring, rich in learning, totally supportive and encouraging, with wonderful co-participants. I left to drive home feeling enervated and very clear about what I wanted to accomplish next with gel printing.

  • I liked your clear and detailed explanations of the process. It is clear that you are mindful of the details a beginner might not pick up unless the steps aren't broken down into small bites and reasons given for why you do things a certain way. Many people who produce instructional videos have voices that are difficult to listen to - yours is easy, conversational and sincere. Your passion for your work and sharing the process is evident in the workshop.

  • Kim has such a genuine passion for printmaking and artists' books that you can’t help but be enthused and engaged. It was a privilege to be able to learn and play in her personal studio space. I really enjoyed the way we were “worked hard,” and made to think how we could apply the many techniques and samples we created to our own art practice. I was so inspired by the end of our 2-day course that I stayed up the next evening until 3am, thinking and planning my future projects.

  • I was really looking forward to the cyanotype workshop but it was even better than I expected. There was a spirit of experimentation and play that made everyone comfortable and happy to share their work. This was a workshop that shows how cyanotype is accessible and easy in everyday life, for those with art experience and even for folk like me who aren't so confident at making things.

  • Kim is lovely and very knowledgeable and shares that knowledge freely. Not all artists can teach but Kim is a great teacher and I found it a very comfortable class to be part of and I certainly enjoyed my day and learnt a lot. I travelled 3 hours to attend a cyanotype class and I wasn't disappointed. I'd highly recommend this class to anyone.

  • Kim is a wonderful tutor full of information on techniques, history, supply sources outlets, alternatives and much more. Kim is warm and engaging in her teaching methods that make you feel very welcomed in her environment which add to the overall learning experience. I found the process for Eco printing was a rather cathartic experience as we scrolled through the table of leaves and dried bark which were our dyes. Then placing these collections at will over our silk and papers, then binding them up tightly for boiling which releases the colours from the plant materials onto our mediums. The anticipation of the unknown print result and colours was exciting to see. Overall it was a wonderful day with a bunch of really lovely people to meet and I had fun learning another new artistic processes.

  • Just walking into the studio gave me a thrill - inspiration in every nook and cranny. Kim has an absolute eye for detail and covered everything we needed for a successful day - an abundance of papers, the best paints, a huge array of materials for print making, and this time the glory of an authentic hand printing press which put the icing on the cake. Every participant left with a smile and a collection of hand made postcards in a beautiful handmade package. Kim is a natural teacher who encourages every student to celebrate their skills.

  • Kim is the most organised and generous teacher I've ever met. She is patient and kind and knows how to help those of us lacking in confidence. She explains every step thoroughly and ensures everyone understands before moving on. She is generous with her materials and knowledge and has a way of making you feel relaxed, even if you think you don't know what you're doing. Her classes are light and joyful and I left feeling inspired and with a beautiful collection of postcards that I'm really proud of.

  • Another memorable learning experience being part of the first group to complete the ‘Notes to Self’ workshop in Kim’s beautiful studio. I found it a very different experience gelli printing onto postcards and the icing on the cake was to print beautiful quotes onto the cards using Kim’s lovely old letterpress. We then printed onto board to create a beautiful little enclosure to keep them in. Kim is an incredible artist and teacher and so very generous in sharing her love of printmaking with her students. She is so creatively inspiring and I value the new skills she has shared with me. I can’t imagine anyone not enjoying every minute of Kim Herringe workshop. Thanks Kim. Can’t wait until the next one!

  • I really loved your presentation, the clarity in your instructions, your generosity in the giving of information. Each module was so beautifully presented, so easy to follow and therefore, fabulous results for me. Pure delight as I lifted off the paper. I look at leaves very differently. The entire workshop was wonderful, in construction, in the flow of one module to the next, and for the ability to return to any place for further viewing and be able to work with. I also love the colour workshop...after years of struggle with understanding color theory I found my way through each module and have a greater understanding. Bless you and grateful thanks.

  • Thank you Kim. I would thoroughly recommend the online gel plate monoprinting workshop. The modules are easy to navigate and all of Kim's instructions are clear, with lots of additional hints and tips. After watching the video of Kim's studio I can imagine walking in, looking at all the art work, the books on the shelves, listening to the birds and admiring the magnificent view. Pure escapism; and that's before the excitement of learning how to make your own beautiful, crisp, uncluttered prints! Truly wonderful.

To put it on the gel plate and become an artwork was incredible artwork from your workshops. I've never doing draw nor paint before so to be able to get this opportunity makes the different for my life. This workshop was so special to my heart. Seriously proud of myself. I can't believe that I created a beautiful work. Kim gave us a special frame and we framed the best artwork from today's workshop. Just a spectacular experience. Thank you soooo much!

Breaking the course up into modules meant that I could view that module, then try out the technique and finally go back over the module and pick up things that I had missed. And I just love the way Kim encourages students to go beyond what is taught to find what works for us as individuals.

  • After 15 years, in mid 2019, I closed my studio in Beijing where I had a space of 150sqm with fabulous screen printing facilities. At the beginning of 2020 I returned to a 35sqm studio at my home in Melbourne and wondered where to go in my production. Covid struck with lock downs which gave me time to 'tidy' the space. A friend suggested Gel Plate Printing that is suitable to a limited environment and another friend recommended Kim. The online course has been a saving grace. It had me looking at my surroundings during my one hour, five kilometer walk where I collected lots of foliage and pursued the joy of a new form of print making.

Kim's courses would be the best online delivery I have come across. Great short videos demonstrating techniques. Comprehensive downloads for everything needed to complete the course. I enjoyed this experience almost as much as attending her fabulous studio workshops. Although, if you can make it to one of Kim's studio workshops you will be enriched for the experience. Thanks Kim. I am one very appreciative customer.

  • "There was lots of very positive chatter about yesterday’s workshop and lots of envy from those who didn’t join us. Ingrid has already booked with you for later in the year. Kim you are a very generous and enormously talented tutor and your positive encouragement was much appreciated. Thank you from all of us." Jenny --- "Having never had an artistic flair I was worried I might have been out of my depth at the workshop. However, with Kim's enthusiasm and encouragement I was very pleased with my achievements. I found the process stimulating, rewarding and therapeutic and look forward to expanding my knowledge." Gloria  ---  "Just wanted to say a big thank you for sharing your talent with us today , I enjoyed the day and I am looking forward to continuing printing at home." Alison --- "Great experience. Highly recommended. Just learning something new and having different experiences is what life is all about. Treat yourself!" Julie

  • Thanks for sharing Kim. I love your generosity. I was a teacher for over 40 years before retiring 2 years ago. I have been disappointed on several occasions with classes I have attended either on-line or in person where the tutor is clearly there to earn some extra money and not prepared to share a lot of their knowledge. That is a 100% not you. The quality of the video was fantastic.

  • The gelatin plate printing workshop was a great experience. Kim is such an organised, helpful, encouraging instructor, that the time just flew. It was such a joy to find something free & easy, no great thought processes, no experience necessary, no right or wrong. Being encouraged to just let it happen, and even go against your initial instincts was very refreshing. I was very happy with what I was able to produce at my very first attempt and I look forward to trying my hand at home.

  • I can't ever speak highly enough of Kim and her unique talents. She's a passionate person who has not only been able to produce such astounding art work but is also prepared to pass on her passions to others in such a selfless and caring way. She goes down to tiny details and personal techniques which she passes on in such detail that one feels caught up in the spirit of the art work and nothing is impossible. Her workshops are like no others, every detail is covered, nothing is missed, and magical artwork is at your fingertips.

  • I did a one on one session Mono printing session with Kim and found her to be warm, friendly and very generous with her knowledge. I really liked the variety of ideas and techniques she explored during our time together and feel this will be positive for extending my own work in watercolour. I would highly recommend Kims workshops for anyone who is looking for a fun day to play and leave their woes at the door. It would also be great for someone in a creative rut who needs some fresh ideas and inspiration too.

  • There was so much helpful information presented in the workshop, it's hard to pick just one favorite part! From simple things like Kim's paint recommendations to her bigger ideas like the homemade registration tool, I walked away with a ton of useful ideas to use in my printmaking. Watching her work really fueled my creativity so I also appreciated the bonus content with ideas for what to do with ALL the prints I've been making since her class. Nice to see content all in one place and SUPER nice to be able to come back and look again without worrying about a time limit on access. Bonus content with templates and easy way to access the info/files.

  • You, your workshop, has offered me a totally new and fascinating world of looking at some things  -  for example of looking at wet and rotten leaves  on the ground or dry grasses in the hay balls  for the horses  -  and  creating  interesting prints  with them. A thrilling activity, and I learn a lot with every print, even  from those I ruin  with the  last layer !   Thank you too for  the generous sharing  of your art!  I hope  you create  more workshops  in future and wish you  again a happy, healthy and joyfull Christmas time and New Year!

  • I care for my 80 yr old husband who has extensive health and mobility problems. Kim's gel printing course is great for someone with limited time. It's a great 'stress relief', a time to get lost in the fun of combining gel plate, paper, ink and flora - a time for 'me'. The way Kim has assembled this 'on line' workshop is great for a carer, as you can learn the technique in your space, in your time and at your pace. There is no judgement but a wealth of encouragement, the generosity of her knowledge of the process and the understanding of being a carer. I can end up with a muddy print but who cares, I am having fun. Many thanks.

  • Kim is a great teacher and awesome artist. She covers everything so thoroughly and at the same time encourages us to experiment and embrace the surprises. This gives confidence to have a go without being stuck on ideas of perfection. With cyanotypes, its often the surprises which are the most beautiful. Kim is warm and generous with so much information. Her home studio is welcoming with inspiration everywhere. At the end of the workshop you feel absolutely empowered to go home and keep producing work.

  • I had a thoroughly enjoyable day doing Cyanotype with Kim as a total beginner to this technique I didn't really know what to expect. The workshop was well run with well paced information throughout the day without becoming overwhelming and lots of practical time making our own cyanotypes. I came away with the knowledge and confidence to continue this printing process and plenty of stimulating ideas to take it even further.

So much fun and incredibly spontaneous and somewhat unpredictable, which is lovely, because then you simply explore your way through the process and you can do nothing but have fun being creative.

  • Just wanted to let you know that I am enjoying your Gel Plate Printing Workshop enormously. I'm very impressed with the portal - it looks really stylish and inviting. I have gone through all the modules on the workshop and have learned a lot as I was quite new to gel plate printing, having only done a half-day course here in England before your workshop. I will be looking over individual modules again, so I'm really happy that I have access for as long as the workshop is running/a year. Although it must be hard to replicate your live, in person workshops, you really gave me the sense that you were inviting me into your workshop and your enthusiasm for printing came over so well. It's an excellent way to share your skills with like-minded people all over the globe (despite the current pandemic).

  • I was unsure about what to expect as other workshops I'd attended were either rushed or short on information, Kim's workshops are the complete opposite. Classes are run at a good pace, that is your own pace. Kim creates a relaxed atmosphere to encourage experimentation and exploration, perfect for nervous beginners like me. She also gives you oodles of useful information and ideas that you can apply immediately. Kim is also a very generous teacher, sharing all she knows and because of that, helps you get great results from the start. I would highly recommend Kim to anyone wanting to learn Gelli plate printing. I'm sure all her courses are the same.

Kim has thought of everything a student might need in learning the printing process and generously shares her knowledge and skills with real natural warmth. It’s great that it is totally self-paced, enabling you to dip in and out of the course, and revisit steps again if you need to. The site is very well structured and easy to navigate - so many resources available too. I really enjoyed the workshop and now am having a great time making gel prints. Highly recommend this course.

You only have to look up enquiringly before she’s by your side, ready to help and give you advice. The workspace is packed with inspiration and it’s great to be able to use tools and materials you might not have access to yourself. Kim breaks down the seemingly daunting technique of reduction linocut, into a tried and tested process which gives you the confidence to try it on your own and further push yourself out of your comfort zone. I highly recommend if you’ve ever wanted to try reduction printmaking!

  • A sense of excitement begins right at the beginning of the first announcements, followed by the pre-workshop information about what to bring and what to expect. Following this build-up, one is ready to step into the studio and be carried away in this new experience. Everything has been thought through so carefully and is reflected in the materials and notes waiting at each participant's work space. The studio is light and airy, with tea and coffee available all day. We start on time and work our way through the day - I like the initial information - what we're going to do/achieve, and how we're gong to do it. There are always plenty of notes/lists of resources, materials/and more - everything one needs to know to keep going once we leave for home. I like the pace, your delivery style and your roving - ready to comment or assist everyone who needs it, and all in a positive relaxed manner. Everything rolled smoothly along - your organisation is superb, seamless, from the studio instruction, out to the garden, back again, and into the dark room. It was so good to see the intensity of each person working through these new experiences, and sharing this joy with each other. Finally, I thought the experience of looking at other artists' work was a really nice wind up -something to strive for, and by this time we really had an appreciation of how these artists were achieving their results. By the end of the day I felt I had some skills to develop at home. And you left us in the security that you are always happy to help if we have further questions.

I also really appreciated the ability to go back and look at your videos of your own work. I have found that I have learnt so much from being able to go and do this after playing a bit and looking at my work more analytically. But most of all, I think the permission to play has been a wonderful gift! Thoroughly recommend this workshop - I could spread it out over a week and it has been a wonderful way to start my day! Be warned though - gel printing is addictive and it had me dreaming of printing! Thanks very much Kim 🙂

  • There was a great atmosphere to this workshop and it felt very relaxed. I had great fun and feel able to continuing lino printing on my own. The workshop was well paced and well planned. There was enough time to complete the objectives of the workshop. The resources available were a great source of inspiration. Having a list of resources etc is a great point of reference to get started with good basic equipment and resources. You were very generous with information and guidance, a great teacher!

  • I’ve just completed Gel Plate Mono-printing on-line course with Kim Herringe.
    I’m excited!
    I’m very impressed with the quality of production and the value for money. The course is very easy to navigate and there so much information presented in a way that is easy to understand. Nothing has been missed.
    Kim’s delivery was smooth and natural - it was like she was in the room, talking to me.
    I would highly recommend this to anyone with an interest in Gel Printing, beginner or not ... and I can’t wait for the next episode 🙂

  • The workshop exceeded my expectations. The prints the students achieved were majestic. A large number of variations in technique were each demonstrated clearly and succinctly. Kim gave genuine encouragement and if a student developed a different result it was acknowledged enthusiastically.

  • Kim's passion and knowledge of reduction lino print and other printing processes made the weekend workshop so interesting and informative. Her skillset is outstanding and is to be admired and celebrated. In that sense, it was a privilege to be taught by her and have her share her skills and life with us, I have nothing but admiration for her strength, skill and tenacity. Working with other likeminded artisans is also special and so enjoyable to see how others approach their work and desired outcomes. Thank you Kim for a wonderful weekend.

  • Kim did a fabulous job sharing her expertise and helping the group get their heads around the amazing world of reduction printing. Everyone left with many more skills, and a completed piece of work of which they could be proud. I am sure we also left inspired to continue printing and determined to return and learn more from Kim.

  • I like the instruction is informative and clear but delivered in an informal way. I also like the generous sharing of ideas, tools and resources. And that you enable participants to go home and continue working on linocut printing with minimal equipment. I also like to see the work of other students take shape. The studio set-up is great - plenty of space for all. I thought the time management was good - I never felt either rushed or bored. And of course - location, location, location!

  • Our Visual Art teaching staff have highly enjoyed the fantastic Cyanotype workshop with Kim. We had a wonderful day learning and experimenting with this technique. I would strongly recommend her workshops for art teachers, artists and also beginners. Kim is very warm host who is only too happy to provide knowledge of skills, resources and materials. She was able to encourage us to be in their innermost creative and mindful zones.

  • For me this was a return to my past. Life just happened and got busier and busier , so 33 years later I returned to where I left off in Year 12 art. It was amazing, I could have spent a whole weekend doing this . I am still thinking about the class and where I could take what I learned. Lovely location and great company too.

  • Very genuine workshop experience. We literally stepped into your studio for the day. Any criticism I have is not for you but the art form and that’s entirely personal. I love the clean lines, I love paper and ink and line work. It’s all beautiful but it doesn’t do it for me like oil painting. Stepchild haha.

  • From her well-equipped studio in the quiet Maleny countryside, Kim provides you with a very informative, relaxed and fun two-day workshop. Having the workshop held in a full time working printmakers studio, with a wealth of resources to hand, plenty of works in progress, and access to past works - really enriches the learning experience. Originals of other printmakers work hang on the walls, and a well -resourced library of reference books is to hand. A creative, stimulating environment indeed.

  • Kim is a wonderful teacher and guided us in making some beautiful prints. I was a beginner at this and not very confident with colours but enjoyed learning a new skill and creating one off original prints. Note from Kim: Lee, you created some simply beautiful prints, and you play with colours was lovely. Keep going !! 🙂

  • Excellent tuition delivered in a friendly positive way. Clear instructions with the right balance of demonstrations and self motivated activity. All equipment to hand and I appreciated the extra space. I have been to workshops in the past where the space is too cramped and everything gets muddled up! You are super organised Kim even down to the tea and biscuits and it makes for such an enjoyable day. You were very generous with your knowledge and tips and I now feel that I can have a go with confidence on my mini gel plate which has been sitting on the shelf untouched for months. Thank you.

  • Kim demonstrated a number of techniques to help us understand the concepts, - one of which was a bit of a head scratch to try and figure out. However it became quite clear once the process was shown step by step. There was a lot of examples of work to show us the end results as well. I look forward to my next class ! Kim is a very approachable and knowledgeable teacher, who is more than willing to share her knowledge. Her art studio is a lovely atmosphere work in.

It was her first time to meet me, I am deaf and it was the first time Auslan Interpreter in her workshop. She loves it too, as I could tell. I was so happy and understanding everything for Gelatin Monoprint workshop. I definitely be back and as well other different workshop with my Interpreter. 😍😍😍

  • We shared lunch afterwards and I thought you'd like to know that you received the loveliest compliments. Words like "professional, generous, amazing, inspirational and knows what she's doing" abounded. Everyone enjoyed the workshop and 3 hours was just right. We were also very impressed at how organised you are. Your gentle guidance and encouragement gave me so much confidence, and I especially loved the way you would tell us to detach from the outcome. I was so inspired that I did just that this morning on a frame of silk that will become scarves. That advice really freed me up to play without boundaries and this piece is unusual for me. ... abandoned playfulness.

From the welcome coffee, to Kim's patient and enthusiastic teaching, the quality of supplies and tools we were using, the amazing inspiration from her to-die-for studio and the small group size, to being able to leave with finished hand-made cards and an urge to try more lino-cutting! Thanks Kim, my first class but I think it won't be my last!

  • I really enjoyed this session and learned heaps, thank you Kim. I loved carving out the lino and seeing the end result transform into something beautiful! I especially liked being able to choose from a range of already tried and tested designs and learning how to replicate it rather than creating a design of your own - this saved loads of time. As well as being happy to help each of us, Kim was very bright, friendly and fun. The venue was excellent and the number of attendees perfect - plenty of room and plenty of fun!!

I was nervous about attending as my background is not of an artistic nature and I was not sure my skill level would meet the criteria needed. Why did I worry? With Kim's gentle approach to the workshop; her step by step instructions and expectations, she put my mind at ease immediately. Her gentle approach to the workshop instills confidence in your ability and by the end of the tuition, you have created a piece that you are proud of. Very liberating!

  • For many years I’ve been searching for an art medium that I can get excited about and now, at this late stage of my life, I’ve found it. Something unknown and unexpected, a passion - perfect for my ageing and rheumatic hands, simple processes I can indulge in on a daily basis, and yearn for when other duties call. I became inspired less than a year ago after visiting a printing exhibition of aboriginal lino cuts. But what to do? A search on Google took me to Kim’s inspirational website and the decision was made. I wanted to get started there and then and so I decided to take a one-on-one session - four hours of entry into this new world. It was just what I needed. Entry level, slow paced, hands on, with fabulous colours and beautiful papers, and take-home gorgeous works of art. I not only learnt the basics of lino printing, but Kim very wisely offered an alternative for when my hands aren’t functioning so well - gelli printing, and it is this that now sustains me. I recently took another individual workshop with Kim, this time to discuss my progress and go deeper into the unlimited possibilities - Kim is such a good teacher - listening, reflecting, guiding and encouraging. I can’t recommend her highly enough - I’m hooked for life, and will return to her studio as often as I can.

  • I had fond memories of lino printing in high school...when I saw Kim's lino printing workshop and had to go give it a try as an 'adult'. What a fantastic day! From the stunning setting to the inspiration everywhere (including the beautiful Maggie) it was a day for the soul. I usually stick to drawing, but can get quite anxious about the finished product...i loved this class as it took the pressure out and focused on fun...i turned one of my drawings into a print and hey presto...i had 12 versions of my drawing that looked cool and graphic and I can now try out all my ideas on without 'ruining' the drawing. highly recommend this class! My husband thoroughly enjoyed making his samurai print too.

  • Kim, I have no idea if you have ever been a teacher. Many artists and artisans are skilled in their areas but lack teaching ability. You nailed it. All learning should involve fun within a positive environment and you provided this in spades. I felt happy just plodding, experimenting and sharing conversations with the group about our individual experiments.....with no judgement attached. It was wonderful to have all of the equipment provided and to have all of your expertise in showing, sharing and modelling. Having a small group also meant we all had access to your expertise and advice. So in short...I loved it.

  • I recently did a Gel Plate Printing workshop with Kim & had a great time! I'd previously watched numerous videos & tried a few things myself, but had not really been happy with the results. In a very short time I was producing multi-layered prints that I really loved. The techniques were clearly explained and demonstrated & the materials were very high quality. Kim's encouragement to just play, experiment & let go of the outcome really made for an enjoyable learning experience. I would recommend the workshop to anyone who is interested in gel plate printing.

  • Thank you, Kim Herringe! What an absolutely fantastic day the PYO Christmas card workshop was. To be honest, I was quite concerned about my ability to be able to complete anything worthy of a Christmas card. With my background of no lino print experience, you introduced me to the process and instilled a competence and confidence in me to create Christmas Cards that I am proud to gift to family and friends. Kim, I can’t say enough words about your generosity sharing not only your knowledge, tips and tricks but they way you provide ample amounts of supplies to ensure that everyone not only achieves their goals in your workshop, but also can continue to develop their printing at home. I was able to teach my 12 year old daughter for her to print her own cards the very next day, which was the best feeling!

  • The Mixed Media Art group at the Buderim Cottage, of which I am leader, invited Kim to conduct two gel plate workshops in October. I found Kim to be professional, her workshop was very well planned and organised. In addition to being an excellent printmaker, she was able to impart her skills and enthusiasm with ease. Her workshops were successful and were universally enjoyed by everyone who attended.

Kim’s passion for this art form is evident from the time you meet her, and her help, guidance and organisation made the workshop fun, interesting and easy to achieve a satisfying result, even as real beginner. It was lovely to meet a group of ladies with similar interests and to hear how their knowledge and techniques have expanded through similar workshops. I would highly recommend one of Kim’s workshops to anyone at all interested in print, and I look forward to attending another next year.

  • Kim has a natural gift for teaching & such vibrant joy in sharing her knowledge & skills - it just spreads out to everyone! Very thankful Kim was so generous with her time - (with all of us) as I learn only through the 'doing'. The size of our group was perfect & the location was just divine. I had a wonderful weekend & keen for more printing practice now!! THANK YOU KIM for an inspirational weekend!

  • Very well organised in a beautiful workshop setting. I liked the small group, allowing us all time with Kim. A happy atmosphere; Kim is extremely giving of her time a knowledge and an excellent communicator.

  • I loved the workshop. Kim shared a lot of information, as well as images which is always nice to see and aspire to. Going through the process with prints of each part of the process was helpful. I had a million questions, and Kim were kind enough to answer them. This enables me see the process in my mind more clearly and to try a couple of things I was wondering about.

  • Hi Kim, I firstly want to thank you for a really enjoyable workshop and I must say you're not only lovely to talk to but you're also a good teacher. Sometimes people can have a skill and run a workshop but they aren't good teachers. You are not one of those! I really enjoyed it.

  • I spent Saturday completing a lino printing workshop with Miss Kim. I must say it was the best workshop I have been to in years and would recommend anyone to attend. It doesn't matter your age, style or skill, Miss Kim makes you feel like a pro. Had so much fun. Thanks Miss Kim

  • I attended the Lino Print workshop yesterday. Kim is an amazing teacher. The class is well structured and Kim provided lots of advice and assistance. The whole day was a fantastic experience. I am now eager to start my next project.

  • Hi Kim, I loved yesterday. I even came home and started on the feather image. I am keen to do more workshops, not only was the space totally perfect but the format was so relaxing and informative. It felt like a retreat for the mind and soul. Your lovely, attentive and easy going style gave me the confidence to pursue with ease unfamiliar territory. Look forward to next time😊

  • I had the pleasure of attending a private workshop with Kim to extend my gelatin plate printing skills, discuss registration and to play with cyanotyping. Kim provided extensive and well researched information in an organised and thoroughly enjoyable morning. I look forward to my next workshop.

  • I love being with like minded people, so we were off to a good start. Kim is very well organised and extremely willing to share her knowledge as well as the tips and tricks she has learned, admitting freely that some of these were by making her own mistakes 🙂 She is welcoming and very passionate about her work - instead of just letting us know what to do, she challenged us and got us thinking about how we could resolve our own dilemmas, but also stepped in with suggestions if we got stuck. My fellow student and I were fortunate enough to do the workshop in Kim's own studio, and it is a very creative space. Again, she was very willing to share her equipment and absolutely everything you could possibly need was provided. Having said that, she had loads or equipment and supplies in boxes and if, due to class size you did the workshop in another venue, you would want for nothing. I'd recommend booking a workshop with Kim. Even if you have done some reductive work previously, you will definitely come away with additional knowledge and some skills about how to tackle a reductive project.

  • Kim's nurturing personality was very helpful in breaking down barriers to learning. Very well organised and presentation of class material superb. The supply of coffee, tea and yummy cookies showed a genuine generosity of spirit. All equipment was supplied, explained and demonstrated. Superb attention to detail.

  • Had a thoroughly enjoyable two days with Kim who managed to de-mystify my fear of reductive lino cutting. The two day workshop was so well organised and resourced and Kim is so generous with sharing her knowledge and linocut secrets. The venue proved very inspirational but the view was a definite distraction! Came away with re-ignited passion and motivation. Thank you so much Kim x

  • Kim is a warm and generous teacher who combines extraordinary talent with a remarkably in-depth subject knowledge to provide a workshop which is both compelling and engaging. I arrived at the workshop with no background in printmaking and left with sufficient skills to use the technique in my own practice   I would highly recommend the Linoprinting 101 workshop to anyone who has an artistic inclination, regardless of their current discipline.

  • I attended Kim’s Reductive Linoprint Workshop on the weekend. I would highly recommend doing a workshop with Kim such an enthusiastic and talented lady. We had a lovely weekend in a perfect setting at Richard Muldoon’s studio in Maleny. Kim is a great teacher and generously shared all her expertise. Really looking forward to doing another workshop with Kim.

  • I found the workshop very well organised, very relaxing atmosphere with no pressure and every step well explained. Great selection of prints to use as a template as well. I learned a lot and realise how important it is to be careful, more precise and take your time. I framed my print and it actually looks great, so in the end I guess I was pleased with what I achieved and feel inspired to do another one with a different subject on the lino. Thanks Kim thoroughly enjoyed.

  • You run a fantastic workshop Kim, you made everyone feel relaxed and you were so generous with your knowledge, resources and tips to ensure every one achieved a good result. Your passion for printmaking really shines through and is so very infectious. You ensured each participant was given the guidance they needed and took particular interest in ensuring everyone understood the process. You were most helpful in explaining ways to overcome any hurdles and genuinely wanted people to be happy with what they were producing. I came away itching to finish my print and to improve my reductive linocut printmaking skills. I have no hesitation in recommending this workshop to others and l look forward to doing more workshops with you.

  • I can highly recommend doing Kim's classes. She knows that everyone learns differently and she is very patient. At the end of a lesson you know you can go ahead and do this yourself.

  • You made it easy and we ended up with a great print we did ourselves. It would be great fun whether you are into art, crafts, printing or not at all - I recommended it to the friend who minded my dog yesterday. You are engaging and passionate about printing and shares whatever you can. I had been interested in trying printing and you literally made me think not only could I do it, but that it would be exciting, challenging and rewarding. You may never get rid of me. 😉

  • Again I had the opportunity to attend one of Kim's lino printing workshops. She is unbelievable in the knowledge she has and is willing to pass on to you. Kim goes way beyond what would be expected of a tutor. I fully recommend her to anyone thinking of taking up a new art. Kim makes it so easy to learn. Thank you.

  • Though I’ve never tried printmaking before, I really enjoyed your workshop Kim.  It was very relaxed and friendly, with heaps of paints, paper and materials to experiment and play with.  The small group we had was lovely - we could get inspiration from others and the right amount of assistance as we needed it.  There was a good amount of activities and best of all, plenty of time to practise what we’d learned – I had a fun day and loved it!

  • I did Kim's Linoprinting 101 workshop and really enjoyed it. Leading up to the workshop, all of Kim's communications about what to expect on the day and what to bring were clear and timely. The studio for the day was well organised and everyone had their own setup which allowed us to work at our own pace. The small group size (8 in total) was ideal for beginners and allowed Kim to focus on personalised help as we worked through our projects. Morning and afternoon tea was an added bonus! Kim is a very talented artist and her passion for her subject matter really shone through, both in her clear explanations of the printing process and in some of the inspiration she shared with us. I'm looking forward to my next class with her.

  • It was a friendly relaxing environment and Kim demonstrated the techniques in a clear manner. I took a while to remember processes but that was part of the fun in experimenting and not trying to make perfect art. Just play!

  • I really did enjoy this class! I definitely recommend giving it a go. Kim is super friendly and willing to help and nothing is so be of an issue. She is so organised from start to end which makes it a nice stress free experience. Where Kim held the workshop was a nice intimate space and everyone had a nice laugh and a great time. Definitely recommend do the course!

  • If you are thinking of a lino craving/printing class this is the lady to have as a tutor. I found Kim to be so organised with emails detailing everything to a T before the class. Her attention to detail in the class was was unbelievable. So much information my head was spinning. She presented us with a beautiful morning tea. The next day Kim followed up with an email with links and where we can source products used in the class. I have many praises for this lady. Thank you Kim
