Comments from participants in the May 2013 Master Class:

Every aspect met my expectations and more…
Your passion, love for the history, and detail craftsmanship was infectious and came through while communicating techniques.

Q:What were the best aspects of the class for you?
The hands on. Actually running the press and problem solving. The best thing was having a two-sided project with an die cut that the die was a bit off. Multiple issues to problem solve. I was able to learn a lot in a very short time with these challenges which I wouldn’t have if it was a simple one sided project. I would highly suggest to use the same project in other classes or something with a lot of challenges. And the excellent coffee and fiddle playing!

I was looking to learn more about the press and its operation as well as get an overview of the entire process from design to print and that’s what I got.
Peter was very open to questions and willing to take the class to whatever subjects each of the participants required.
