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.
“I thoroughly enjoyed learning a new skill and printing technique - gelliplate plate printing on fabric - and I can embellish with stitch later.”

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.
I loved this workshop!
I learnt new skills with excellent demonstrations and background information.
