PRINTMAKING WORKSHOPS & COURSES
I run a programme of printmaking workshops for people with all levels of experience. Workshops are held in my light, spacious studio - a converted barn in a beautiful rural setting on the edge of the ancient market town of Hexham where the background music is birdsong and sheep.
MY APPROACH ...
First and foremost, my workshops are FUN AND SOCIABLE
I ask students to try and leave their PRECONCEIVED IDEAS and INNER CRITIC at the door!
And to BE READY TO LEARN from me AND from each other
The best learning can involve you in TAKING A FEW RISKS and MAKING SOME MISTAKES along the way
The EMPHASIS is on PROCESS AND SKILLS NOT PRODUCT.
I am there to help, support and suggest - NOT TO CHOOSE WINNERS OR AWARD MARKS!
WHAT YOU WILL GET FROM ME ...
The benefit of my twenty years plus experience as a professional printmaker
Seventeen of these years have been spent teaching printmaking to all age groups and levels of ability
Individual attention - places are limited to six people on each workshop to ensure I spend lots of time with all my students
A welcoming and peaceful studio space to try something different, somewhere to have fun and tap in to your inner creativity!
All your materials and equipment including a spanking new printing press
Coffee, tea, and a delicious lunch each day
A lift to and from Hexham rail/bus station (should you need it) and lots of free parking
