“I took a mokuhanga class with Charles Coates in his studio. Charles is a knowledgable, caring and attentive teacher, providing information and techniques that come from experience. He makes woodcut printing approachable and easy to understand. I enjoyed my experience and look forward to more cutting and printing, soon!”
— Pantea Karimi, professional artist (
“Charles helped me print an edition from a linoleum block. My prints came out beautifully, and I also had a great time getting to know Charles and learning more about printmaking. I would recommend Charles to anyone who is interested in learning art- especially printmaking; he is positive, knowledgeable, and sensitive to his student’s needs.
