This is for those who have come to a Simple Printmaking workshop and seek to develop your printmaking skills further.
Covering potato printing, lino printing and screen printing (with paper stencils). Develop your skills and explore the possibilities of repeat patterns and multiple colour-ways to create more ambitious textile designs. It's up to you whether you would like to play with all three techniques throughout the day, or focus on a more ambitious project using one technique. You can screen print all day long! You will come away with your own hand-printed fabric to make a cushion.
Make a weekend of it and get stuck in! I will be running an introduction to printmaking workshop on the Saturday, you can book both workshops at a reduced price of £130.
Rose believes there is a painter in all of us and a ruddy good one too. By the end of this class you will have learnt about paints and colours, types of brushes and techniques and created a whole oil painting of your own. Rose encourages you to bring along your own subject matter and ideas about style.
Rose is a professional painter. She studied at the Royal Drawing School and Edinburgh College of Art and has had several solo shows. She loves introducing beginners to painting as it is so exciting to help people do something for the first time. Her drawing classes make a wonderful gift for a friend or loved one or even an artistic activity for a hen party!

"Rose took me to a remote Scottish cottage for a week in October and gave me drawing and painting lessons…it was wonderful, very inspiring and liberating. It has re-ignited a passion for observational drawing. Also, I painted in oils for the first time and I am hooked….Rose is a very gentle and inspiring teacher"
