Workshops Over the Winter Months

We have organised a series of one day winter workshops designed to inspire you to create some unique Christmas cards, gifts and more. Led by our friendly, experienced and supportive tutors Michael Waight and James Vass, these are suitable for any skill level. Just bring yourself – all materials are included. Hurry and book so you can start printing! Techniques available are:

  • Linocutting
  • Bookbinding
  • Screenprinting

See below for more information, or call 01224 639539 to speak to someone and to book your place.

If you can’t find the best class for you, you can also arrange one-to-one tuition with us at very reasonable rates.

One Day Linocutting Workshop (FULLY BOOKED)

Willie Rodger

Linocut + Screenprint, 'St Abbs' by Willie Rodger

This is a great way to spend the day making small blocks that can be repeated for pattern making and creating those special cards. Try making your own personalized labels for gifts. By cutting away the areas you don’t want to print, these lino blocks can be printed with hand rollers - with or without the use of a press and therefore very suitable for printing almost anywhere.

  • Date: Saturday 13 December 2014
  • Time: 10am - 5pm
  • Cost: £75/65 conc.

One Day Bookbinding Workshop

This is a fantastic way to keep or give very personalized hand made books at this time of the year. Some use stitching, some use glue and some have neither. For the day we will make a number of small books. Book types will include Pamphlet, Blizzard and Concertina forms, just to get you started!

  • Tutor: Mike Waight
  • Date: Sunday 14 December 2014
  • Time: 10am - 5pm
  • Cost: £75/65 conc.

One Day Screenprinting Workshop

Come and enjoy a day of colour, where you have a chance to explore this beautiful process and try out making cards, labels and wrappings all suitable for use with the coming Christmas. The technique of scraping ink through a fine mesh can be quick to get results and by adding thin layers of colour you soon build up wonderful effects and images.
