Our two day printmaking workshops run in the spring, summer and autumn and are held in the spacious, well equipped workshops at Bothy Yard. They cover woodcutting and etching and are intended both for printmaking beginners and for those with some experience who would like to progress.

Woodcutting is run alongside etching with different tutors and you can choose at the time of booking which you would like to do. Each workshop is limited to small numbers to enable one to one tuition and help when needed.

tutors are experienced teachers as well as practising artists and they provide invaluable instruction to all who attend the workshop, tailored to each individual’s needs, whatever their previous experience.

The cost of each two day workshop is £200, which includes all materials plus a 2 course lunch at the local pub. You will be supplied with either etching plates or woodblock and woodcutting tools also ink and editioning paper. Tea and coffee are also supplied.

Jen Hall with some primary school children
We also work with school children, giving them a chance to experience a working print studio. This has only been made possible in the past by the support of the members of the Sudbourne group and grants from Suffolk Coastal District Council and the Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

With primary school children we explore three simple techniques: monoprinting with textures, transfer monoprinting and drawing into pressed polystyrene tiles then printing the images with overlaying rolls of rainbow colours. With smaller groups of secondary school children we can explore soft ground etching as well.

All the children gain the opportunity to work under the guidance of two experienced artists in a wonderfully creative environment, with rewarding results. If you are interested in finding out more please
