If you're looking for an opportunity to exercise your creative side, and maybe want to try something different, this is an excellent venue for rolling up your sleeves and having some fun! I am by no means an artist; as such, I came into this experience with no pretense other than to have some fun, kill some time, and try something different. Rebecca provided all the tools and materials necessary, as well as some insight in how to work with the medium; which is exactly what my naiveté needed. That being said, I'm absolutely positive that if you're an artist that want's to challenge your skills and aggressively experiment with a new medium, Rebecca will deliver an experience that would match your expectations. In the end, I made my linocut, had enjoyable conversations, and was served a light lunch; all from the setting of a quaint Bellingham artist's house on a beautiful Pacific Northwest Saturday. Additionally, I was provided invaluable directions and opinions on some of the antique stores in the area. I literally don't think I could have asked for anything more from this experience.
