Beat the autumn chills - spend the weekend making wildly colourful monotype prints using paper stencils and plants as masks.

You can bring some of your own plant material and we will pick some from the farm lane outside the studio with which to work. We will use pre-cut stencils to mask off areas of inked up plates to over print in layers

I'll show you how to mix your inks to work from light to dark printing in layers using plant material as masks then we'll bring the two approaches together for you to play and experiment with.

You'll go home with a small selection of unique prints.

If you are a complete beginner you’ll have fun without worrying about your ability to draw, or lack thereof.

If you are an intermediate or experienced printmaker, you will leave with new tools and techniques in your tool box that you can then adapt to your own approach to your work.

Group size: 6

Price includes all materials and a delicious two course lunch

For those travelling from further afield, find out about some accommodation options here.


It is possible to pay for the course in two instalments. Please email me and I will setup a payment plan.


You will receive a full refund if the workshop is cancelled due to:

  • The tutor is ill

  • Hazardous travel conditions (e.g. snow and ice)

  • The course does not attract enough students.

  • Any unforeseen circumstances (e.g. accident) that affect you or the tutor


  • Within 24 hours of booking - your fee will be refunded

  • Within four weeks or more before the course starts - an equivalent transfer to another course within the same term or 50% refund.

  • Within four weeks or less before the course starts - a refund or equivalent transfer is discretionary. If I can fill your place less your fee minus £40 cost of processing your booking, or the option to transfer to another workshop within that term. If I can’t fill your place there is no refund.


I strongly recommend you take out cancellation insurance if you are booking transport and accommodation to attend the workshop. I make every effort to ensure a course goes ahead even with low enrolments. In this case I take a decision two weeks before a course is due to run, (four weeks if I know someone is coming a long distance). However, I cannot take responsibility for cancellations due to unforeseen circumstances. 


  • My aim is to be as accessible to everyone who wants to attend a workshop as is feasible and practicable.

  • It is your responsibility and extremely important to inform me if you have some form of physical disability that needs to be taken into consideration from a fire safety or emergency exit perspective in order that I can carry out a risk assessment and make appropriate provision.

  • Please let me know also, if you have any health issues or allergies that may be affected by exposure to the materials used in a workshop.

  • There is NO WHEELCHAIR ACCESS as the studio is via a short set of stone stairs (+/-10) with a hand rail. Inside the studio, everything is on one level.
