We’ll conclude with a small lunch at 13 and you will take with you all the posters you printed.

Really enjoyed this workshop - even though I had squeezed in a wine tour that day - Elena was great and allowed time for me to come and do the printing with her. Its easy and vey effective - instantly a result of your work of letters and colour - which is satisfying. Elena is very patient and demonstrates to you very easily how it is all done. Would recommend this workshop to others and he setting with the Olive grove is wonderful as well as the beautiful property. Thanks for your time Elena.

Elena runs a spectacularly beautiful guest house in the Florentine hills, about 15 mins from the centre of Rome. Her premises alone would make for a lovely half-day! The printmaking is a creative and enjoyable exercise, and make a unique souvenir of the trip. I took my two kids, aged 13 and 9. Elena walks you through three different printing techniques, and then pretty much lets you experiment in creating a poster that captures your travel zeitgeist. We did four different versions each, and came home with a stack of attractive experiments. We finished the day with a delicious, simple homemade pasta for lunch. Everyone was happy, relaxed and inspired. Thoroughly recommend.

This was a delightful way to spend 3 hours. Elena is kind and knows her craft well. The setting is beautiful- terraced fields and olive trees with a beautiful view of downtown Florence. We walked away with several prints we made ourselves. It was fun and creative. Would highly recommend.

We had a wonderful day just outside of Florence in Elena’s country workshop. We learnt a lot about printmaking and type setting but more importantly had a fun day making posters that we could gift to our friends.

Elena is a kind and patient teacher of this fun art/craft. Her home studio is beautiful like the area that surrounds it. I felt comfortable, and not rushed to create and explore what/how I wanted during this workshop. Elena was there the whole time helping or ready to help. I got to create 8+ prints that I took home with me, so I have plenty for myself and to share with family/friends. This also is a nice sort of souvenir from my travels in Tuscany. I hope to return one day to take the workshop again or visit this lovely countryside area in Florence. Thanks Elena for the nice workshop!

I surprised my boyfriend and it was one of our Italy trip's highlights. Not only was the view from the working space perfect, the experience of printing itself was addicting and we could've stayed for so much longer. After the workshop we had a delicious light lunch with the very charming and talented Elena and now we're enjoying our own posters very much. Highly recommended!
