OUR COURSES

Welcome 

We now have our summer programme ready and have published details below, we are adding new workshops all the time so keep an eye on this website.

We are trying to keep our costs low but as you can appreciate some venues and artists have raised their fees so we have had to make some small increases. On the whole our prices are comparable with Master Art Workshops 2019 prices.

As we have had some last minute cancellations that impacts on the running of our workshops, we have felt it unfair on those who have booked and made arrangements to attend the day. So we are asking that payment is made within a specified timescale to secure your booking and that the workshop can proceed.

We look forward to creating some amazing masterpieces with you throughout the year.

Imagine the excitement of cutting and printing your own design... How many ways could you find to use your prints? Gone are the days of cut fingers and rough images - Jackie will expertly guide you and encourage your creativity to flow - expect lots of ideas to hatch as you work!

 

This one day workshop will be an introduction for beginners and equally a reminder to others with some prior experience, into the art of relief print making. Armed with some basic tools and material we shall create our individual design on paper, transfer this into the 'lino' which is in effect a modern version of the original brown/grey lino, called SOFTCUT. Jackie will demonstrate some basic methods of making marks and cutting into the lino followed by simple printing methods.

 

This expressive medium will be tailored to your individual needs. Lino cutting and printing appeals to all levels, so come and have a go - even if you are a beginner. All materials are included so you don't have to buy anything beforehand. If you are experienced, however, Jackie will have some more complex techniques to share.

 

Price £85 includes all day refreshments, a two course lunch and all your materials. Free parking.
