March is shaping up to be a busy month.
Taking our inspiration from a number of design sources, including Mid Century Design and the work of contemporary printmakers, we will explore pattern through mark making, drawing and collage, with a mixed media approach. We will create experimental printing blocks and stamps, before developing a series of lino cuts.
Saturday 7th March, 10 – 4pm, £65, including: materials, use of equipment and refreshments; just bring lunch.

Create with a Gel Plate – back by popular demand with two dates to choose from.
Gel printing plates are a lively and instant method for monoprinting and without the need for a printing press. I will guide you through a range of gel plate techniques, including: layering, impressing, creating stencils and exploring masking techniques. You will leave with a range of unique prints.
