Mono printing is a form of printing that only produces one original image, unlike other printing forms where you can get multiple prints from one original.
There are many techniques for Monoprinting that create beautiful results. Working with thick printing inks and a lovely selection of handmade papers, you will produce a number of original prints to take home with you.
Our wonderful tutor Fiona will be on hand to gently guide you in this craft. All materials are included plus beverages and light snacks.

Lino Printing on Fabric
2020 dates now available.
On this 2 hr course our lovely tutor Fiona will teach you the art of lino cutting and printing.
Fiona will start the session by looking at plenty of samples of images printed using lino cutting techniques. She will talk about the tools involved and you will get to handle and use each tool to create a small practise piece.
Fiona will go on to help you plan a design and then how to transfer it to the lino. You will be able to use the tools used on your sample to create a linocut.
Lastly, Fiona will show you a couple of methods of burnishing and printing your linocut onto a fabric bag. You’ll go home with your lovely linocut, some sample prints and a fabulous reusable shopping bag proudly displaying your artwork.
This course is suitable for complete beginners to lino cutting or those wishing to brush up their skills. As lino cutting involves using sharp gauging tools this course is strictly over 14’s. Under 16’s must be accompanied by a paying adult.
This is a 2 hr course and will include hot and cold beverages and lots of lovely biscuits. Please arrive 10 minutes early to allow time to get a brew and get settled, you don’t need to bring anything other than your lovely self. Directions and further information (if needed) will be emailed directly to you two weeks before the
In this 2 hour workshop, Sarah Sewell of Wildgoose Designs will teach you how to make a fabric-covered 30cm drum lampshade. Your lampshade can be made for a table lamp or pendant fitting (ceiling). Suitable for beginners & absolutely no crafting experience necessary!
A selection of fabric is included in the price but you may wish to bring your own fabric to cover your lampshade (Please note – this needs to measure at least 100cm x 30cm. Medium weight cotton fabric works best for this – please no stretchy or very thick/upholstery fabric)
There will also be a selection of retro cotton fabrics available to purchase (£5 per lampshade) if you prefer.
Extra kits will also be available to purchase at a discount price of £12 per kit (fabric not included).
This two hour workshop is an introduction to shaping and layering paper to create wonderful pieces of art.
You may benefit from attending our beginners workshop for paper cutting, but it is not essential. You will still be able to fully participate in this workshop as we have templates and designs for all levels of experience. You do NOT need any drawing skills to enjoy this workshop as all projects are based on templates. We are happy to show those who wish, how to create a template from your own drawing at home.
We start by looking at the different methods used to create layers with paper and an introduction to our basic tools. We will complete a warm up cutting exercise to hone our cutting skills for the session, which includes shaping a basic mini beetle. You will then choose from a huge selection of templates and be guided through cutting your own 3D project.
You will go home with a completed framed project, plus a set of templates to continue at home with the skills you have learnt during our session. You will get to keep your cutting mat, scalpel and a packet of spare blades.
Tea, biscuits and all materials are provided for the session. Suitable for 10 years and over.
