Latest reviews:

“The intimate blue pea session was packed with information and interaction. Both Janna and Carlyn were very personable and were ready to answer our queries. The linoprint session was manageable as Carlyn was able to explain the steps clearly and gave many examples that were already prepared. The environment provided in her studio was calming. Sufficient demonstration and guidance were given to ensure that we could embark on linoprint on our own. Every moment of the session was curated impeccably. It was an enjoyable afternoon.”
~ Shahdon, Singapore

“It was a fun and interesting workshop, I learnt new skills and had a great time. Carlyn is an excellent teacher and a great host. Highly recommended workshop to unleash your creativity and do something original.”

~ Jenny Wong, Singapore

“We had a great time at Carlyn’s food linocutting class. She’s very thorough and patient, and makes the whole experience super fun too! I’m not even good at crafts but she coaches me throughout and I’ve made pretty great stamps out of it!”

~ Andy Lim, Singapore

“I commissioned an artwork of my friend’s furry bestie for a special birthday. I was impressed with Carlyn’s quick turnaround as well as how perfectly she selected a great photo, medium and colour background to make it special! Also grateful for a beautiful artwork done on a one of kind custom bag inspired by my national flower. Absolutely my go-to commission artist in Singapore!”
