Choose from these fun & vibrant print based workshops:
Simple block printing, Paper Marbling, Print & sew journals, Relief Foam printing, and Jelly Printing

Paper Marbling:

This is a magical form of mono-printing that is perfect for children as they are full of fresh ideas and so experimental. Your children will have have great fun getting creative with this unique printing method. I will guide them through 3 different techniques, then they can go crazy printing their own hand marbled papers that can be used for bookmarks, greeting cards or in journals. The patterns can be as simple or as complicated as they choose.
Marbling is addictive and never fails on the WOW factor!

Print and sew journals

Your children will have fun practicing printing with a selection of my hand carved stamps & vibrant inks. They will then design & print the front covers for their journals. After a short snack break we will then do some simple stitches with bright threads to complete our journals.
Making your own journals and notebooks from scratch opens up a world of opportunities for children, they can write in their own stories, be investigators or record books or unique & special personalised gifts.

Relief foam printing

Join this fun workshop and let your child’s  imagination run wild,  create your own monster, favourite scene, or you could even do a portrait of your family pet? the choice is yours.
We will be exploring the art of relief or press printing which is an easy and immediate printing technique using foam boards and vibrant colours for striking effects. You child will come away with their own original pieces of art ready to frame.

What to bring:
All materials are covered in the cost of the course but please bring an apron, old shirt or old clothes for your child as printing gets messy!
All inks are water based, washable & safe for children and no sharp tools are required for any of the workshops.
When booking, please notify me of any allergies your child may have.
