About the Course

Choose one or all 5 dates. £70 per workshop
Learn about a range of drawing and print methods in a relaxed yet productive environment at the Chalk Pit Art Studio, Amberley Museum.

We will develop creative ideas through a range of printmaking techniques using tools and equipment that do not cost too much and are easy to acquire for further use at home. Those who attend the 5-week course will tackle a new print method each week or add greater depth and refinement to one which has already been tackled, gradually building up experience and confidence. Plenty of starting points will be provided however bringing your personal resources and ideas is wholeheartedly encouraged.

Please contact me details of which workshop runs on which date or see my website (link above).
