Experimental Printmaking inspired by Mid Century Design
Taking our inspiration from Mid Century Design and contemporary printmakers such as Jane Ormes and Jenny Douglas, we will explore pattern through mark making, drawing and collage. Composition will be developed by creating experimental print blocks and stamps, before we refine our ideas and experiences to develop a series of lino cuts. You will also have your lino block, print blocks and stamps to take home and continue using.
Saturday 4th June, 10 – 4pm, just 3 places to allow for social distancing, £79 per person, including: tuition, use of equipment, materials, plus refreshments served throughout the day; just bring your lunch.

Create with a Gel Plate – mono printing without a Press
Gel printing plates are a lively and instant method for creating mono prints, with the advantage that you don’t require a printing press. Each print is unique and this highly adaptable process invites experimentation.
Gel plates look and feel like gelatin, but are durable and reusable. They come in a range of shapes and sizes, are easy to clean and are always ready for printing; used in conjunction with acrylic paints, you will just need a soft roller to apply the paint.
I will guide you through a range of techniques, including: layering, impressing, creating stencils and exploring masking techniques with leaves and flowers. You will leave with a range of mono prints that can be seen as outcomes in their own right or can be starting points for further processes, such as painting or lino cuts. They can be collaged and used to create cards and gift tags or used in creative journals and sketch pads.
This workshop will suit the creative beginner or those with experience of different creative processes and techniques.
Saturday 11th June, 10 – 4pm, just 3 places to allow for social distancing, £79 per person, including: tuition, use of equipment*, most materials, plus refreshments served throughout the day; just bring your lunch.
