Entry Requirements

No experience is necessary this is a fully guided course and you will be supported by our very experienced tutor throughout. We will be using scissors to cut stencils but you can bring your own craft knife or scalpel if you are more comfortable using this type of tool for cutting. Basic materials are included, (however you may wish to purchase specialist papers so please bring change in case you want to try this)

Printmaking can be messy and although aprons are provided it may be sensible to wear old clothes. High heels and sandals are not allowed, please bring something low and that covers the whole foot.  Please note that this course does not run during the half term/end of term breaks.
This course runs on 4 consecutive Saturdays from 10am-1pm.
