“I highly recommend Shana James’ Lino printing workshop in Ubud, Bali. Every part of it was designed to rejuvenate the senses and reconnect to artistic practice. The time spent with like minded teachers and practitioners was invaluable.”Letitia Morrow Art Teacher, Mentone Girls’ Grammar School Melbourne, Australia 2017
“Thank you for your fantastic talks! We often get artists in to talk about their work, but I have never had a guest who has taken the time to present such thoughtful lessons. I spoke to the 11/12 General class this morning who said that your presentation was really insightful and helpful in terms of the ideation process for their narrative etchings.”Lucinda Crimson, All Saints College Perth, Australia 2021
Ubud Linocut Workshop: “This course was everything I hoped it would be. I had no previous experience but had always loved lino prints and was drawn to the course when I saw Shana’s work on-line. Her prints captivated me with their detail, and the story they told.”Sian Roberts, Primary Teacher Perth, Australia 2017
Ubud Linocut Workshop: “Hands down the best PD I have ever been on. Often found myself saying (tongue firmly in cheek) “Wow! this PD is really tough. Shana James is a kind, approachable, gentle soul with a relaxed teaching style, backed with a wealth of knowledge and skill.“Anna Menke – HighSchool Art Teacher Central Queensland, Australia 2020
