Bluecoat’s popular Print Studio sessions are back for the autumn-winter season. Learn a range of print techniques including screen printing, etching and linocut. Whether you want to take up a new pastime, build on your existing knowledge or re-visit an old hobby, we have a workshop to suit you.
This season Liverpool artist Linny Venables joins Bluecoat as their Print Studio Manager. She brings a wealth of experience to the studio, and is a familiar face to many of Bluecoat’s print room users as she leads on many of the courses. Stay tuned – we’ll be talking with Linny on their blog in more detail soon. As well as weekly courses if you’re looking for a unique Christmas gift for that creative someone you know then book them a place or attend together!
