Here are our Summer courses for 2018!

We had great feedback on our last season of courses. Here’s a taste of some of the feedback:

‘Great teaching…. Very clear and well structured and yet he was also flexible and listened to us. Enjoyed the physicality of making a print’

‘Screen printing … has opened my eyes to many other creative possibilities’

‘Really friendly and helpful tutor…well paced, great mix of instruction and doing stuff for ourselves. Very easy and pleasant style… producing something of your own was great!’

Alongside our short courses we also run year long courses in printmaking and book arts.
