BESPOKE PRINTMAKING WORKSHOPS


MONOTYPE • COLLAGRAPH • CARBORUNDUM • GELLIPLATE PLATE • LINOCUT • DRYPOINT • ARTIST BOOKS

 

I have over 20 years experience delivering printmaking workshops geared to the specific interests and abilities of groups ranging from complete novices to experienced printmakers. Whoever I am teaching, the emphasis is on learning something new and exciting and having fun doing it!

Although my areas of particular expertise are collagraph and monotype, I am able to offer high quality teaching in the printmaking media shown above.

PRINTMAKING AS THERAPY

I have frequently worked with individuals recovering from mental health difficulties. For 3 years I delivered printmaking workshops at North Tyneside Art Studio - a facility specifically geared towards offering creative expression to people coping with a wide variety of mental health problems to aid their recovery. I have also worked with other mental health organizations such as St. George’s Hospital in Morpeth, and a suicide support group in Co. Durham.

HOW LONG AND WHERE?

Your workshop could be as short as half a day or for several days in-depth tuition. I can deliver your workshop from my well-equipped Hexham studio for groups up to six people. If coming to my workshop presents difficulties, we can explore the possibility of delivering a workshop at your location.
