I have had some very encouraging feedback from all over the world. 

I recently purchased your wonderful DVD series. I must say I have truly enjoyed watching them. II hope it is a great success for you and I hope it will not be your last! I want to watch them again and look forward to producing some nice prints using your methods. I wanted to say "Thank you" for sharing your process with others. It's nice to know there are artists that will share a few of their secrets.
Thank you Brenda. Your printers Dawn and Nicola are awesome!!

I am just watching it now and I am so mesmerized. Your work is amazing and I am beginning to understand how the plates are made. Thank you again for putting all this information out there for all to learn by.
Roberta Warshaw, Brookline, MA USA

The DVDs have arrived and I've watched them several times.  As a relative newcomer to printmaking I found the DVDs very easy to listen to and understand the methods explained. I also found the discussion about your creative process was equally interesting and insightful.  One of the main messages from the DVDs for me is to get out into the studio and start experimenting to develop my own creative language and style.  Thanks for imparting your expertise Brenda.

I’ve received your DVDs and must congratulate you on a thoroughly well thought out and well done job. Thank you so much for revealing how you do what you do (and do so well, I might add!). Your years
of trial and error with materials and methods have been handed to us on a platter and I must say that
it is very generous of you and much appreciated.
Caryl Peters, publisher Frog Hollow Press

Have just watched your DVD for 2nd time and I love it.  It is so generous of you to do this and I shall refer to it time and time again.  
Gerry McLoughlin, Norbury, Staffs UK

Bravo! For producing a wonderful DVD set which I received this week. Have already watched a couple of times. Thank you for your continued generosity as I am transported back to Udimore every time I watch it. There is a lovely ambiance in the DVD which is added to by the presence of Nicola and Dawn in the studio of course.
