Printmaking workshops at the Hatton

Over four Saturdays form late November to early February a number of eager printmakers took part in workshops run by Caroline Coode and myself (Vhairi Cardinal). Some had brought work in progress to print from, others were complete beginners and came in some trepidation. All produced beautiful work along the way and can be rightfully proud of their achievements. This time we introduced screen printing for the first time and some participants found the process rather challenging, but persevered to produce prints on paper and on fabric.

Other techniques explored were collagraph (tutored by collagraph queen Caroline), lino cut and engraving on acetate. Some participants brought engraved plates they had made at other workshops.

Different techniques produce different effects.

We are planning to have more workshops in the not too distant future. If you would like to have a go as a beginner, or to develop your practice as an experienced printmaker, we’d love to welcome you to our workshops. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for early announcements.

The cost is not great – currently £20 per day – much less than a day at any other print studio. Come along and spend an enjoyable day with friends and learn, produce and achieve super prints.
