Why do I run workshops?
I find printing quite magical, its as simple as that!
As a very young child I went to a family fun screen printing workshop run at the Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool. It was just a tiny taster but the memory of how it felt to see my image printed stayed with me.
There’s nothing quite like the first time you pull back the paper on a new print and reveal its secrets, its one of my favourite parts of teaching print workshops, I’m always watching the faces of my pupils!
I studied printmaking and printed textiles and have worked out of many printmaking studios, however in my own studio I don’t have access to expensive printing presses. Through my own work I have had to adapt both the way I work and the equipment I use in order to develop my own style.
I’m passionate about printing and I believe that printing in many of its forms can be accessible to all with a little imagination and very little outlay. It is with this thought in mind that I began to teach my workshops both here in my own studio and at other venues across Wiltshire and the surrounding area.
