This May, we're rolling out the canvas for an exhilarating four-week journey into the world of relief printing, designed exclusively for adults who are eager to unleash their creative potential.

Unlock the Artist Within: A Four-Week Creative Odyssey

From May 29th to June 19th, 2024, immerse yourself in the tactile and rewarding craft of relief printing. Whether you're stepping into the art studio for the first time or returning to rekindle your passion for printmaking, our adult course is your gateway to mastering the art of carving, inking, and printing your own masterpiece.

Carve, Ink, Print: The Magic of Relief Printing

Relief printing is not just an artistic process; it's a form of expression, a way to transfer your thoughts and visions onto paper in the most exquisite way. You'll learn how to wield various carving tools to etch your imagination into reality. With every cut and groove, watch as your blank canvas transforms into a repository of spectacular effects, all through the elegant simplicity of this single-colour process.

Press Play: Traditional Techniques Meet Modern Creativity

Our studio is a treasure trove of history and innovation, housing an array of presses that span centuries. From the venerable 1860 Albion press to a traditional etching press, you'll experience the thrill of transforming your carved blocks into printed wonders. But that's not all—learn the art of hand baren printing, a skill that allows you to continue your printmaking voyage beyond the studio walls, into your home or personal studio.

A Symphony of Colour and Texture

Dive deep into the nuances of inking with our hand brayer techniques, exploring the vibrant world of colour mixing, the subtle gradations of ombré, and the tactile beauty of embossing. Each technique opens up new possibilities for creativity, allowing you to experiment and perfect your art.

A Community of Creatives

What makes our course truly special is the camaraderie and inspiration that flourish within our studio walls. You'll be learning, experimenting, and creating alongside a small group of like-minded individuals, all under the guidance of our experienced instructors. This is a space where creativity knows no bounds, where each print tells a story, and every artist is celebrated.
