Core Offer — Printmaking Workshop

As an ongoing option throughout the year, we work with locally based artist Harriott Reghini Brand, to deliver a printmaking workshop. Various printmaking options are available, including mono, lino or collagraph printing techniques.

This session works well if the pupils are working on a specific theme at school and want to explore it in more detail with different media. Schools can either bring their own inspiration with them if they are following a specific topic or can be inspired by our current programme of exhibitions and showcases.
