"Thank you again for a wonderful print experience! I very much enjoyed our time together. In the workshop the process and technique of Mokuhanga was very well explained. I appreciated your patience and knowledge in demonstrating each step and answering all my questions. I came away excited to learn more about this wonderful technique. I look forward to visiting again one day soon!"
