Workshops are open to all abilities, from beginners to beyond. Drawing ability is not essential. Examples will be shown, practical demonstrations and guidance will be given, and you’ll get help on an individual basis if needed.
The workshops include: soft cut, vinyl, nib cutter tools, papers, lino, inks etc. You will also be able to take-away the cutting tools you use in the workshop, meaning you can continue your printmaking practice afterward. We’ll be working with block size 100mm x 150mm.
These 2 half-day sessions on two consecutive Sundays will allow for your work and practice to develop across each session.
