LEARN HOW - COURSES FOR ADULTS
We provide expert and fun training in screenprinting (on paper and textiles), traditional and photographic etching, relief, photo lithography and letterpress. With options to suit a variety of lifestyles and budgets we've got something for everyone. All our introductory courses provide sufficient tuition to enable you to join as an open access member afterwards.

INTERNATIONAL COURSES
We have tailored short intensive courses for visitors from overseas - to date we've welcomed students from throughout UK and Ireland but also as far apart as Holland, Italy, Nigeria and US. If you are part of a university, college, another print studio or an enthusiastic group of fellow printmakers looking to engage the expertise at our studio, we can provide! We are happy to advise on accommodation and other practicalities. Please drop us an email.

SCHOOLS AND TEACHERS
All courses listed here are for 16+ but we also offer workshops for schools and teachers - senior schools students can come and learn about drypoint and monotype and 1 colour screenprinting on a one-day course. We can also deliver workshops at your school for students of a varying age-range. We are keen to develop opportunities for teachers to attend in-set days at the studio as part of CPD to take back to the classroom environment and as part of their own artistic practice.
