I want to introduce the fun world of printmaking so you can take what you've learned and be able to practice at home.
I offer various printmaking classes using non-toxic and low-cost materials. My classes are designed to be able to practice on a kitchen table, without the use of heavy and expensive printing presses. Most are hand printed using Japanese Baren or something similar, like a flat lid of a container. Some may be printed using a pasta maker just for fun.
I try to be as environmentally conscious as possible, using recycled materials where I can, and by only using water-based inks and paints. Water-based inks can be cleaned up easily with just soap and water, most of the time even without soap.
So come check out my classes regularly to see which techniques may interest you. I accept Creative Kids Vouchers. You can sign up for multiple classes so you get most out of your voucher, as long as it is used in one booking.
