Courses & Workshops

Our courses are open to people of all ages and abilities. They are listed below and linked to our booking website, where you will also find documents with full course descriptions . Courses are bookable approximately six months in advance, so check back here for courses later in the year.

Whether you are a complete beginner or an accomplished artist we can help you to learn most methods of printmaking or develop your existing skills.

The teaching is friendly, supportive and directed towards personal development.

We promote a clean and environmentally friendly approach to printmaking aiming at all times to minimise the use of solvents and other harmful chemicals.

You’ll find more details on types of printmaking here but we are always happy to discuss the courses on offer and recommend a suitable course for you. Just get in touch.

Or if you are a printmaker with some experience, you might like to become a member.
