  • I have been to a few of Kim's workshops so far and I think this particular workshop has been the most satisfying. Just love the scarves and paper we produced. Love the environment, Kim's easy reassuring manner, all the resources available and the other participants. Oh and Maggie - of course!

  • I loved the workshop in its entirety. It was a wonderful, fun, interactive day with just the right number of students in Kim’s studio. Everything that we needed for our artistic processes was provided. She was available to each and every one of us for advice and assistance. Her enthusiasm with her art is contagious. Kim is a great communicator passing on her craft with explanation and demonstration. She is a natural teacher and generous with her knowledge. Our day flowed beautifully because of Kim’s planning for a highly successful workshop.. I look forward to my next one!

  • I attended a Xmas card linoprinting workshop and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. 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!!

  • Kim is such a fantastic teacher. Very informative. Explains the subject so it is easy to understand. Very generous with all aspects of the workshop. Lots of fun. I came away, and I can say for all our group, with such energy and enthusiasm. Cannot wait to continue with all the knowledge from this second workshop that I have attended with Kim.

  • "I am not a beginner and yet I learnt so much. About using tools, mark making, sharpening tools, and doing a rubbing! Had never thought of that as a way to review progress. You are a great teacher, generous with your time and knowledge, patient, and passionate. Not precious about your knowledge and expertise like some teachers. It was great Kim. Thankyou." Julie    ---    "I hadn’t done Lino print for a long while, and after the workshop, I’m so hooked. And we also got lots of information for places to buy and places to visit for inspiration." Ellen --- "Love that Kim shared her knowledge of the Exhibition at the Gallery, and sharing her passion for her chosen Practice in the Art World. THE best workshop I have attended at the Gallery. Many, many thanks" Joan --- "I feel privileged to have been able to participate in the workshop." Margaret    ---    "Can’t wait for the next one!" Barbi    ---    "I had a great experience and look forward to developing my new skill." Sandy

  • Recently attended a Cyanotype workshop and had an absolutely wonderful day. Kim gave easy to understand instructions, numerous examples of what to expect that attendees could feel, look at and discuss. There were ample things to try out and lots of space to move about easily. Kim was on hand with suggestions and answers and a plethora of information in follow up emails. Her studio is light and airy, easy to access and has beautiful views to enjoy whilst stopping for lunch.

  • Thank you Kim for a perfect workshop. Your enthusiasm for your art is contagious and I felt I came away from the day so inspired. The thing I loved was that there was no pressure to create a certain way, there was no wrong way to do anything. I came home with some beautiful pieces and not one am I going to discard. Love them all, that says a lot for how you conducted the day. The information flowed all day. Thank you Kim for sharing so much.

  • I signed up for a two day Lino Print workshop with Kim. 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!

Kim has a very humble and genuine approach to sharing her skills and expertise in the art of print, and her workshop offered the perfect blend of information, instruction and time to get lost in the creative process. Thanks Kim, I had a wonderful day.

  • 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.

  • I did Kim’s Linoprinting 101 class and REALLY enjoyed it. It was super well organised and Kim is a great teacher and communicator. The class was well paced and Kim’s instructions very easy to follow. Kim is a talented printmaker who is very happy to share her knowledge and passion. She knows we’re all creative and understands our need to create. I look forward to attending more workshops in the future.

  • 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.

  • I recently attended Kim’s PYO Christmas Cards lino print workshop and it was an excellent day. 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!

  • 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.

  • 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.

    Kim M Sunshine Coast, Qld
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

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
