THE HEART– an emotive, intuitive and expressive approach to drawing and painting that allows artists to instinctively express feelings through observations and imagination (eg Van Gogh, Munch)
TECHNIQUES SKILLS AND THEORIES – expanding on the traditional skills, techniques, theories and experimental approaches to painting and drawing using a variety of materials
CONTEXT – placing all aspects of this programme into historical and contemporary art context.

Come and share our love for the Letterpress. Using old school metal and grease machines and creating page layout by hand, you will enjoy one of the most aesthetically pleasing of the printing methods.   

With the support of our expert tutors, students will be introduced to the Letterpress studio, and guided to typeset and print their own piece of work. 

We have an extensive type library, proofing presses, and a beautiful Treadle Press. 

All materials included.

All of our workshops offer the highest quality tuition in a relaxed, welcoming, open and conducive atmosphere. Our workshops are structured, providing you with the necessary skills and techniques to master the craft and are flexible too, allowing you to work on different projects from traditional to contemporary. You can work at your own pace and all materials and tools are provided at the class to get you going.
