Lino Printing Workshops

I have been teaching printmaking on and off since 2009.
I have taught at Spike Print Studio, the Royal West of England Academy, Bristol Drawing School, Bristol Folkhouse, Pop-Up Shops, various private classes and 1:1 tuition sessions from my studio.

I teach regular classes on Lino Printing and Block Printing onto Fabric at Bristol Folk House. Both courses are suitable for beginners and those with experience looking to refresh their skills. For current courses please visit www.bristolfolkhouse.co.uk

Below are workshops that I run from my Bristol studio at Pennywell Studios.
