What you'll do

If you'd like to try printmaking, let Jemma and Vicky bring the workshop to you, whether that's at your home, a private venue, a cafe or even woodlands! For the past five years, your expert hosts Jemma and Vicky have been popping up in locations all over the South West, sharing their passion for printmaking.

In this private experience, you'll use lo-fi printmaking equipment such as pasta machines, to discover the wonders of the printed mark - and all with accessible materials that allow you to continue your printmaking journey at home.

Jemma and Vicky host a variety of printmaking workshops for you to choose from. Just drop them a message before your workshop, letting them know the process you'd like to try. You can choose from:

  • drypoint printmaking
  • lino-cutting
  • painterly mono-printing

  • experimental drawing

All guests will take home a limited edition hand-printed image to show off to family and friends! The maximum number of people for this experience is 10.

About Bristol Print Collective

Bristol Print Collective is run by Jemma Gunning and Victoria Willmott - two self-confessed print nerds with a passion for sharing their love of printmaking with whoever wants to discover more about it! The ethos behind Bristol Print Collective is to teach DIY printmaking to enable participants to carry on with printmaking at home. The pair can be found popping up in locations all over south-west England, armed with ink and tools like pasta machines to share the wonders of low tech printmaking.

Your host

Jemma Gunning

Jemma has been working in the realms of printmaking since falling in love with the printed mark on her BA in Drawing many moons ago. She specialises in intaglio and lithographic processes that are rooted in drawing. As a documentary printmaker recording our fading heritage, her practice captures derelict spaces that are in a state of flux, highlighting the beauty that is often found in decay.

Jemma has been teaching printmaking for nearly 10 years. In 2015 she co-founded Bristol Print Collective, a group of printmakers that pop up across the south-west, sharing their skills and passion with diverse communities. In 2020 she co-established Bristol Print Atelier, a place to teach traditional printmaking processes to keep historic techniques alive. Jemma also works part-time as a lithography technical instructor at UWE.
