A fun and immediate way to produce beautiful prints. Learn how to create colourful works and print them on the traditional, hand pulled Colombian & Albion presses. Cut your image into Soft Wood, Lino, or Vinyl blocks and incorporate colour using Chine Colle and blends of ink.
Progress on to reduction and multiple blocks.

It is possible to take more than one course, one after another and continue on to develop more advanced printing methods.

Materials – inks, cleaning materials, chine colle paper, glue & two small starter blocks are all included in the course fee.

If booking onto a course, all sessions within the course need to be paid for, even if you are not able to attend them all.

To adhere to the current COVID-19 guidance, we have the following rules in place:

Masks – Please bring a mask to wear when you are in the studio. As we are only taking limited numbers of artists in the studio, you should be able to remain at a distance from the other people so we will not be enforcing a mask wearing policy for your whole session. If you are working in an area on your own or are the only person in the room, you do not have to wear a mask. However, if you are talking to someone, walking through the studio or if there are other people in the same area, we will expect you to wear a mask, unless you are exempt. 

1 - Only come to the workshop, if you are feeling well and have shown no signs of the virus in the last 14 days. 

2 - Do not attend the workshop, if somebody in your household or someone you have been in contact with, has the virus or is showing signs of the virus, within the last 14 days.  

3 - On arrival at the studio, please immediately wash your hands using the anti-bacterial handwash. 

4 - Please keep two meters away from the other people in the workshop at all times. If you need to walk through the workshop to the sink, office, paper cutter, drying boards and so forth, please communicate your intention verbally or visually, if you need to pass another person in the room. Please ensure the other person has acknowledged your presence and has moved to a safe distance before you pass. 

5 - Do not approach Staff members or enter the office, please respect the two metre rule. 

6 - If you are booked on a course but feel unwell on the day, please email or ring us to cancel. We will hold your missed session as credit for you to attend on a different day. 

7 - Please provide us with your mobile number, in case we need to cancel you at short notice. We will be adhering to the above rules too and will only attend, if we are well and show no symptoms of the virus.

8 - We reserve the right to refuse access, if on arrival, you are visibly unwell or coughing. We reserve the right to ask you to leave, if you are unable to adhere to the above safety rules.

While we will do our best to clean and sterilise the communal areas and to keep the workshops as safe as we can, we emphasise that you enter at your own risk. 

Thank you, we appreciate your co-operation and look forward to seeing you in the studio.

Cancellations -
If you are unwell, displaying symptoms of COVID-19 or if somebody in your household or someone you have been in contact with, has the virus or is showing signs of the virus, within the last 14 days, please let us know and do not attend the studio. In this circumstance, we will hold your missed session as credit for you to attend on a different day. 

If, within 14 days or less of the course date, you cancel your place on the course because you cannot attend, the full course fee is non-refundable unless we manage to fill your place. If you wish to cancel your place on the course, you will need to inform us via email or letter, we do not accept cancellation by telephone. If once the course is full, we are able to fill your place, refunds are subject to a £10 admin fee. If, once the course is full and we are able to fill your place, if you wish to transfer to another course, there is a £10 admin fee.

We have limited our class numbers to respect the current COVID-19 regulations. It is important that we fill our small classes so we ask that participants honour the commitment they have made to attend, illness aside. 

Courses have small numbers and fill up quickly so it is advisable to book in advance.
