Service Description

Fancy learning something new? Come & try our printmaking session and learn how to operate a small printing press. You will take home a series of your own unique artworks created using the Collograph Printmaking technique. Here's what you will learn: - how to prepare some simple designs taking inspiration from our natural surroundings - how to make a collagraph plate ready for inking up and running through the press - how to operate a small printing press to run prints from your collagraph plates. This is suitable for all levels of art experience and complete novices are very welcome. Drinks are available during the session, and you are welcome to bring a packed lunch with you. You can choose a date that fits in with your holiday plans - just select a date from the calendar when you book. If you can't find a suitable date, just let us know - we can probably fit you in somewhere! Note: For 2021, we will not be running any workshops until July (after UK lockdown lifts). We will be working in the lovely light-filled studio right next to the sea at Kirkhope Bay. You'll have a spectacular view of the sea and the beach. The community bus stops a few hundred yards away which links with most ferries (please check your timetables!). The ferry is a 20 minute drive away. Class runs 10 till 4 (but let us know if this doesn't work with your transport & we can adjust!)
