Here are our Autumn 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.

Please note that making a provisional booking does not guarantee your place on a course. Places are only confirmed on receipt of payment in full for a workshop. No deposits or saving places for anyone, no matter how well we know you! You can pay the course fee and get yourself booked on a course so you don’t miss out!

If you are not on our mailing list… GET ON IT! You can contact us directly at or phone 0161 743 3111 if you have any questions about courses, membership or just printmaking in general.
