Art & Crafts Discover Printmaking: Christmas Printing Workshop

Sat 4 Dec | 1.30-4.30pm | £45 (includes refreshments) | 16 + | Tutor Karen Lester | Art room 1 and Print Room

Come and join us to explore the magic of printmaking. No experience is needed, just come along to have fun, learn something new and make something beautiful!

What will the course or workshop cover and how will it be taught?

Create your own festive images, perfect for some handmade Christmas cards using drypoint and monoprinting. Drypoint involves scratching a design into the plastic plate, which can be inked and printed off in an edition, making it ideal for a unique series of greetings cards. And with monoprint, you can go wild with colour and mark making to make individual images.

Are there any additional costs?

All materials and equipment are included. Tea/coffee & biscuits are included.

What do I need to bring with me?

Please bring a clean apron and/or wear old but clean clothes as printmaking can get messy. Bring a pen, notebook and your glasses, if you need them.

About the tutor

Karen enjoys working with a range of painting and drawing media, including printmaking, sometimes combining these to create mixed media images. Each type of medium brings its own exciting possibilities and unique qualities, something she continually explores.

Her interest in Printmaking developed at Kendal College whilst completing a Foundation Degree in Drawing with the University of Cumbria. She finds the quality of marks made in the process of printmaking particularly fascinating and has produced prints using a variety of techniques.

Her work has been exhibited in galleries in Cumbria and Lancashire over the last 25 years and she has been involved with projects including Printfest and C-Art and runs occasional print workshops for the National Trust at Allan Bank, Grasmere as well as for private groups.

Karen is an experienced qualified teacher and has been teaching in the adult education sector since 2011
