Spring has sprung and our course programme has been in full swing for a while now. We have had some really lovely busy and bustling weekends and evenings and lots of lovely feedback. We just have 2 extra courses put on to meet demand; Rudiments of Letterpress on 9th & 10th May and Zines on 17th May. We have just the last remaining places on these courses.

We are planing our next course programme for a full Summer. We expect to finalise plans by late May and to start advertising in early June. If you are not already on our mailing list get in touch and we will make sure you are added so that you hear about courses as soon as they are announced. Courses book up really fast so this is the best way to hear about them first. It is also useful to befriend us on facebook as we have all the extra announcement and information on events we run.

Our Complete Printmaker and Complete Book Artist courses will also be announced and bookings taken from June 2015 for the year-long courses to run from February 2016.
