What you'll do

Come along to a relaxed workshop where you can master some new creative skills! Learn how to print using a method called drypoint and get to grips with a printing press in this experience, run from your host's home printing space.

This form of printing is ideal for beginners.

In this experience:

  • Receive an introduction from your tutor, Kate
  • Be inspired by what you are about to make
  • Get shown drypoint tools, materials and techniques
  • Start work on your own print
  • Enjoy refreshments
  • Leave with your wonderful artwork

How drypoint works:

In drypoint printmaking, a design is drawn or scratched on a plate with a sharp needle-like instrument, inked up and run through a printing press- making each print truly one-of-a-kind.

All materials, in addition to tea and coffee, will be provided for your crafting workshop to be complete.

Treat yourself to some relaxing me-time and leave feeling revived. Just take it from these previous guests:

  • 'I loved this workshop- full of inspiration'
  • 'Thank you for your great workshop! It was fun and relaxing at the end of a long day - amazing!'
  • 'I left feeling upbeat and happy and like I wanted to do more art!'

Good taster session for this craft. I took on too much and was rather rushed at the end, but well supported by Kate. Don't be too ambitious!
